184-room hotel proposed for San Rafael’s Canal neighborhood

Published on : Thursday, January 10, 2019

A proposed 184-room, five-story hotel in San Rafael’s Canal neighborhood is a good project for the area, but parking, landscaping and design need improvement, a city board said this week.

 

 

“When you (the applicant) come back, I think we’re going to have to see, obviously, a lot more detailed, robust package of drawings,” said Stewart Summers, chairman of the San Rafael Design Review Board, at Tuesday’s public conceptual design review session. “None of this is negative. We want this project. This is a good project.”

 

 

The project, proposed by Stephan Allen of Stanton Architecture, a San Francisco firm, is envisioned as a dual-branded hotel featuring Home2 Suites and Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton at 1075 E. Francisco Blvd.

 

 

 

The 3.45-acre lot — a former car dealership that was demolished in 2005 and has been vacant since — is south of Bellam Boulevard near Interstate 580. To the north and east are commercial and industrial offices.

 

The project would be a 107,487-square-foot building, four and five stories tall, standing 54 feet, with a swimming pool, public spaces, reception and storage areas,194 parking stalls and 20 bicycle parking stations.

 

An additional 54 parking spaces could possibly be provided at the northern tip of the property at Castro
