San Diego, California – Reported by Erin Riley for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
Gordon Ramsay has made a career of satisfying cravings: his list of hit television shows is beginning to rival the number of Michelin stars he’s been awarded. In a new venture that sets to delight his elite traveler fans, the icon applies his across-the-board expertise to the design of the new Victory Suite at The Keating Hotel, San Diego’s premiere boutique destination.
The first in a line of four exquisitely curated suites at The Keating Hotel, the Victory Suite is being launched in collaboration with the famous chef for his latest television series Hotel Hell. The Victory Suite’s scheme will be synonymous with the hotel’s exclusive design by Italian auto design house Pininfarina. Classic European style meets SoHo chic in all of The Keating’s 35 luxurious abodes, complemented by stunning loft-like proportions made up of exposed brick walls, vaulted ceilings and glass-encased bathrooms.
A unique blend of Romanesque architecture and contemporary, expressive Italian décor, the exclusive Ramsay-inspired suite will feature designer amenities guests won’t be able to find anywhere else: a Pininfarina-designed Morphosis Jacuzzi tub, top-of-the-line Bang & Olufsen entertainment system with two flat panel HD televisions
and sweeping views of San Diego’s historic
Gaslamp Quarter are some defining features.
Ramsay lends his acclaimed style to The Keating Hotel and its MerK Bistro as part of the Hotel Hell episode highlighting the property. In collaboration with a team of hospitality experts, Ramsay made several alterations to the downtown San Diego hotel, including a complete lobby redesign, his signature Victory Suite design, as well as a new menu for the hotel’s MerK Bistro.
