In hotel news, San Francisco’s lodging scene keeps improving with a new Yotel, a new Hyatt Place, and a big overhaul of the historic Hotel Triton; Hyatt opens a new Miraval spa/lifestyle property in Texas; Denver gets a luxury Marriott affiliate; and Marriott/Starwood’s W brand debuts in Dubai.

San Francisco’s Hotel Triton – located in the Grant Avenue corridor at the intersection of the Financial District, Union Square and Chinatown — has just finished up a $6 million transformation that included renovation of all 140 rooms and suites, giving them Frette linens and bathrooms with Carrera marble finishes and Waterworks plumbing features. The overhaul was overseen by Liubasaha Rose, the former vp-design at Starwood Capital Group who now runs the Rose Ink Workshop. The project also gave the hotel new eclectic furnishings and innovative décor with a focus on travel and on the “Danish concept of ‘Hygge’ which incorporates a feeling of coziness, comfort, contentment and wellbeing,” a spokesperson said. The hotel also added a new guest service: room service ordering from the nearby French bistro Café de la Presse, available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. February rates start at $135 plus $51 in taxes and fees (including a $29 “urban amenity” fee)
