Providing panoramic views of San Diego's skyline, San Diego Bay, and the Coronado Bay Bridge, the Presidential Penthouse Suite offers an unparalleled glimpse of the city's unique character. Additionally, its separate living room and salon denote it as a top choice for gatherings at the same time its serene bedroom ensures a restful night's sleep.
Originally a radio station, the suite embodies the hotel's past and present. Redesigned for our most discerning guests, the suite was added onto the roof top of the hotel in 1939 as a radio station and created a mark in history as the very radio station from which President Franklin D. Roosevelt broadcast his first ‘fireside chat' outside of DC.
Today, the spacious 11th floor suite offers panoramic views of the surrounding cityscape and bay, and has been refurbished to include a six-person dining area with a built-in service bar, which makes it ideal for hosting gatherings or meetings. Meanwhile classic crown molding, Empire-style furnishings, Persian rugs, and original French and Native American Indian art communicate the hotel's signature blend of classic and contemporary.
An executive desk with writing pad provides the perfect place to record the day's thoughts, while an IDD telephone and a convenient Wi-Fi connection keep guests in touch for either business or personal communication.
Imported carpets and sleek, wood flooring run throughout the suite, leading guests to the separate salon area and master bedroom. Providing a serene sanctuary, the bedroom features imported silk rugs and is equipped with a pillow top Luxury Collection King bed draped in 300-thread-count Italian linens. Thoughtful details include a freestanding mirror, and iPod docking station. A second 50-inch plasma television is enclosed in custom cabinetry and automatically rises for viewing.
The master marble bathroom's infinity whirlpool bathtub offers another singular experience. Surrounded by cobalt tiles and featuring remote controlled "chromatherapy", guests can alter the color of built-in LED lights to fit---or set---the mood. Meanwhile, dual stone basin sinks and a glass-enclosed shower provide guests with comprehensive bathing options. Exclusive Elemis bath amenities, plush bathrobes and warm slippers anticipate their every need for repose.
