Swinerton Builders San Diego Delivers Stylish New Hotel to the GaslampContributor: Swinerton Blogger | July 09, 2015
Swinerton Builders San Diego recently completed work on Hotel Z, bringing a contemporary new must-stay destination to Southern California visitors. Conveniently situated in the heart of San Diego’s historic Gaslamp Quarter, the existing four-story wood-framed extended-stay hotel was fully overhauled. In its place, Swinerton built a beautiful new boutique hotel, which opened its doors right in time for this year’s Comic-Con International convention.
Located at 521 6th Avenue, the hotel was previously a Holiday Inn Express and was sold mid-stream and converted to an independent hotel. At 40,000 square feet, Swinerton gutted the building’s interior and renovated it completely—transforming 200 rooms into 96 contemporary suites, while adding a new lobby, business center, and convenience store. A variety of room layout options are available to suit all visitors’ needs, including families, couples, solo travelers, and disabled guests. The entire hotel received all new finishes, elevators, windows, paint, and signage. Work on the hotel began in November 2014 and wrapped-up in early July 2015.
