San Francisco’s Moscone Center isn’t the only downtown destination getting a fancy refresh. Business travelers and tourists alike will notice a shiny new Intercontinental Hotel right next door. The behemoth 550-plus room high-rise has been revamped by BraytonHughes Design Studios, who was inspired by the idea of an intellectual gold mine and high-powered fashion. The pinstripes in the gray carpet conjure images of exquisitely tailored suits and suit-like buttons outline the bed skirts. The hotel’s art collection features local emerging artists and Instagram stars.
