The Keating boasts a collection of 35 sleek stanzas (Italian for “guest room”) and suites fashioned by Pininfarina, the Italian design team of Maserati and Ferrari fame. Rooms are modern and loft-like with high ceilings, no interior walls and views of either the hotel’s atrium or the bustling Gaslamp street scene. Bed and bath areas are divided into “warm” and “wet” zones separated by semi-translucent partitions between sleeping and showering quarters. A palette of mood-smoothing grays and blues flows from walls and décor to sleek furnishings set on polished concrete floors. Stainless-steel accents add an element of shine.
Suites at the San Diego hotel vary from studio-style lofts to one-bedroom lairs. Ranging in size from 550 to 795 square feet, each includes enhanced amenities. The Chic Loft Suite features plush lounge window seating and a private "carwash" shower with rearview ceiling mirrors, while the Fresca Spa Suite presents a private atrium with a Jacuzzi and an alfresco steam shower. Meanwhile, one-bedroom corner suites offer separate social and sleeping spaces and a slick in-room Alpha Morphosis Jacuzzi designed by Pininfarina. All stanzas and suites are equipped with Bang & Olufsen HD entertainment systems, in-room Lavazza espresso machines and luxury Frette linens.
