BrandED | THE GUILD HOTEL, SAN DIEGO, A TRIBUTE PORTFOLIO HOTEL

activated central hub of the hotel using a subtle, patriotic color
scheme of red, white, and blue. Check-in is a bold, inviting nook that
celebrates the YMCA's original logo colors. Accessories include
antique boxing gloves hung in the fitness room and locally curated
pieces honoring past artists who were also members of the armed
services.
The Guild provides a three-meal dining space, Luca, in its
open-air courtyard, also designed by Rienne. "The al fresco dining
experience is intended to transport the guest to somewhere in the
Riviera. The food provides the color, and the black and white palette
provides a neutral backdrop so that the cuisine can shine."
The standard king and single queen guestrooms average 210
square feet, with naming conventions such as Journeyman and
Apprentice. The smaller footprint led Rienne to design a retail-style
clothing display in lieu of a traditional closet. Some larger room
footprints provide a locker-style wardrobe. "We felt using a locker as
inspiration for a closet was a fun way to highlight the YMCA's roots

in athleticism," Rienne adds.
The event spaces capture the most dramatic transformation
of the original interiors. The gymnasium became a beautiful new
ballroom space that celebrates and highlights the old with modern
neutrals to create contrast. The original hardwood basketball
floors were refinished, and the elevated running track provides
a canvas for event-specific design elements in the space. The
basement swimming pool was filled in to create a meeting room
and prefunction space where carpet mimics the flow of water. In
a unique twist, repurposed original pool tiles and a datum line
recreate the experience of entering the pool area.
"We are delighted with the design and how it not only tells the
brand story but also maintains the unique character of this historic
property and its surroundings," Rienne says. "By embracing the
ideals of a guild in our own work, we were able to craft a story that
ultimately manifested in the design."
