explore Plug In and Play At San Francisco's techy hot spot, the stylish Hotel Zetta By Ellie Baldini ★ 24 JANUARY 2014 TVs on both floors of the lounge, Mac computer stations, and free Wi-Fi throughout, every area of the hotel engages tech-savvy guests. "We've created productive yet playful spaces to feel like an extension of the Twitter, Facebook, and Google offices where many of Hotel Zetta's guests work," Bell says. "We have a lobby filled with recycled art, and a second-floor playroom with a pool table, shuffleboard, video games, and board games." PHOTOS BY CHRISTIAN HORAN (3) AND LAURI LEVENFELD Work hard, play hard - it's the mantra of any metropolitan hub. At Hotel Zetta, in San Francisco's fashionable South of Market (SoMa) district, the city's savvy professionals and like-minded visitors flock for top-notch business perks and after-hours fun. With companies like Google and Facebook headquartered in nearby Silicon Valley, many of the tech world's best and brightest call San Francisco home. And in-the-know urbanites gather at this boutique hotel hot spot for drinks or designing, meetings or mingling, and everything in between. "Hotel Zetta speaks very particularly to San Francisco's tech audience, which has a different definition of luxury hospitality," says Greg Bell, director of sales and marketing for Hotel Zetta. Take any of the hotel's 116 sleek rooms and suites. In place of the usual standard-issue armoire, you'll find oversize butcherblock desks, perfectly suited for collaborating over, say, an espresso and a brand-new app's interface. And forget traditional TVs and Wi-Fi access: These rooms come with Internetready Samsung smart TVs and G-link docking stations. Comfort is also a priority. Think sumptuous pillow-top beds, hand-stitched antique rugs, and Neil George bath products. The property's public spaces are equally userfriendly. With flat-screen
