It might not look like much from outside, but inside the Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf, she is one festive gal—from the fire pits lining the parking area to the contemporary teal mood lighting in the lobby—and guests respond to the playful design, lounging in common spaces to sip wine, Skype their friends, and catch up on the news. Boisterous and bright, the hallways feature skylights, giant windows, and massive beach-ball pictures wallpapered between rooms. The fun doesn't
end in the guest quarters, though: Sloped walls let in plenty of sunshine through large windows, highlighting the candy-colored throw pillows atop Signature beds, the plush leather chair, and the geometric lamps. The hotel's party-girl vibe caters to people wanting to enjoy the city rather than do business, which is why families flock here.
