About the Keating Hotel and Keating Hotel Group:
The 35-room Keating Hotel, the Keating Hotel Group's (TKHG) first hotel and lounge prototype located in an historic building in the heart of San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter, made headlines with its sleek red, black and stainless steel décor when it came on the scene, marking the first foray into the world of hotel design for Italian design house Pininfarina (well known as the exclusive designers of Ferrari and Maserati). But more than having the finest combination of premier location, cutting-edge design, and the highest level of true personalized service, the boutique hotel is also setting new standards in San Diego by being environmentally friendly.
Set to expand the Keating Hotel by Pininfarina brand worldwide, The Keating Hotel Group (TKHG) is comprised of a well-seasoned group of real estate professionals collected for the purpose of launching, developing and operating a unique, highly stylized, full-service boutique hotel brand. While the term "boutique hotel" has, of late, become somewhat of a diluted, over-used term in the hospitality sector, the privately operated and managed TKHG is poised to set the new standard for true high-end boutique hotels throughout the world. Primarily due to the exclusive partnership with its design team---world-famous Italian powerhouse Pininfarina, as well as its intense focus on personalized, high-end service, TKHG has sparked the interest of hospitality insiders, aficionados, and the worldwide media, alike.
