The Epiphany Hotel, a Joie De Vivre Property, Opens in Palo Alto, California
Joie de Vivre Hotels today announces that The Epiphany Hotel is officially open, becoming one of only two hotels to debut in downtown Palo Alto in more than a decade. First guests were greeted by General Manager Lorenz Maurer and a stylish team outfitted in custom uniforms by Taylor Stitch. Shaped by the surrounding start-up zeitgeist, The Epiphany affords an authentic experience, including innovative meeting spaces, smart amenities, friendly service, and a casual spirit.
Palo Alto reflected in our collaborative and intuitively-designed spaces," said Lorenz Maurer. "We hope to inspire our guests and neighbors with curated experiences that evoke intrigue, curiosity and productivity, making The Epiphany Hotel a dynamic home base for business or pleasure in the heart of Silicon Valley."
Located at 180 Hamilton Avenue, a block from Palo Alto's prime retail street - University Avenue - thebuilding, which was originally constructed in the 1970s, was beautifully rebuilt from the ground up under the direction of esteemed Palo Alto-based Steinberg Architects and McCartan Interior Design. The Epiphany Hotel's new exterior - paneled with perforated metal - retains the original façade's six- story-tall mosaic portrait of El Palo Alto, the thousand-year-old coastal redwood that gave the city its name.
Geared to innately meet the needs of the Valley, guest rooms and suites are modern yet warm,providing smart, user-friendly capabilities so guests can unwind and relax while easily staying connected. The Epiphany Hotel offers an array of services and amenities to ensure seamless and comfortable stays, from a full-service hotel concierge and dedicated Technology Concierge to complimentary high-speed internet access and complimentary preferred access to the expansive Vivre health club only steps away across the lobby. Conceived by Palo Alto's design and innovation firm IDEO and designed by McCartan, mezzanine-level meeting and co-working spaces are perfectly wired spots to network, brainstorm, or catch up on work.
On the ground floor of The Epiphany Hotel is Lure + Till, a welcoming, all-occasion indoor-outdoorrestaurant led by Executive Chef Patrick Kelly, serving simple, honest food and craft cocktails. Lure + Till is currently serving breakfast and lunch through in-room dining. The restaurant will open for full breakfast, lunch and dinner service on Monday, March 17.
