  9. Don’t just take our word for it:

“The Keating Hotel in San Diego is indeed – as its promoters claim – unique. The 35-room property, housed in an 1890 Romanesque Revival building in the city’s Gaslamp Quarter, is the first hotel conceived by Pininfarina…Pininfarina designed everything in the hotel. Everything. Every little thing. The spoons, the coffee machines, everything. This is the Pininfarina interpretation of San Diego.” - Robb Report

“The 33 Best New Hotels for Business.” - Fortune

“The Keating Hotel was designed by Pininfarina, the Italian team behind Ferrari and Maserati. You’ll find a few more brand names inside the 35 guest rooms: Bang & Olufsen stereos, Dornbracht bath fixtures and LaVazza espresso machines.” - Travel + Leisure
