The iconic Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco will 75-years old on May 27 and the city is going all out to celebrate the milestone from a fireworks cruise, to a dance festival and lots of art and photography exhibits.
And of course, San Fran hotels are getting in on the action, offering special bridge anniversary packages--typically at regular room rates but with some bridge memorabilia thrown in.
But at the Hotel Palomar San Francisco, it's just one special room that's celebrating the bridge--The Golden Gate Suite.
Room 512 was specially designed to commemorate the bridge's anniversary and the nightstand and coffee table were fashioned out reclaimed steel from the bridge by local artist Richard Bulan. Guests who stay in the suite are treated to a complimentary Golden Gate cocktail from the hotel's Fifth Floor restaurant called Vermillion M.E.S. Those initials stand for the architects of the bridge--Irving Morrow, Charles Ellis and Joseph Strauss. The drink's hue is also orange in another nod to the bridge's rusty red color.
