"San Francisco is a tough city for hotels. There are grand dames like the exquisite Palace Hotel and the stately Fairmont, and then a whole lot of bland, beige-carpeted corporate ones. When it comes to smaller boutique-y hotels that have a real sense of place… it’s pretty slim pickings. But, with the re-opening of the historic Phoenix Hotel this month, Texas-based hotelier Liz Lambert and her hospitality group, Bunkhouse, hope to change this."
"Last year, Austin’s Bunkhouse hotel group—no stranger to groovy and highly Instagrammable rehabs of old hotels—reopened the 44-room property, punching up the décor and flaunting its rock ’n’ roll past with a number of unsubtle details, from a wall of vinyl records in the restaurant to a punk-themed gift shop."
