Edgy accommodations

If you're looking for something a little edgy on your next vacation, a hotel that marches to the beat of its own drum, look no further than the newly opened Hotel Zeppelin. Located just two blocks from San Francisco's Union Square, Hotel Zeppelin is owned by Pebblebrook Hotel Trust and operated by Viceroy Hotel Group, marking the fourth partnership between the two companies. Designed by Dawson Design Associates, the 196-room hotel draws on the city's history as being a place for the dreamers, the rule breakers, the revolutionaries and the visionaries. “With careful consideration poured into each and every detail, Hotel Zeppelin is the ultimate celebration of San Francisco's long and storied counter-culture tradition,” says Hotel Zeppelin's general manager Antonio Flores. “Our provocative design and rebellious nature promotes the non-conformist experience San Francisco has been patiently waiting for.” Offering a street level café, bar and lounge and a downstairs “Peace” game room with skeeball, shuffleboard, an oversized electronic bingo board synced with a dynamic sound system, and a quick-shot basketball wall it's safe to say this isn't your standard hotel experience. A variety of room types are available, including the 1,800 square foot Presidential Suite with wet bar, media room and outdoor deck, each decorated with eclectic furnishings, amenities and, in select rooms, vintage inspired record players.
