Painting a Hotel in San Francisco - the JW Marriott!

Painting a Hotel in San Francisco - the JW Marriott!

There's no doubt that in some ways, every painting project is unique. However, some are more unique than others! That's how we felt about one of our recent commercial painting projects: the JW Marriott hotel in San Francisco. This elegant context was a wonderful place to apply our skills in new ways and work with a team to produce a beautiful result!

So, what made this hotel painting project different? Well, where to start?

Scope and Timing

The JW Marriott painting project was fairly large in its scope. We painted many sophisticated rooms and areas in the hotel, including:

  • Four salons (small conference rooms)
  • One board room
  • One ballroom
  • Two bathrooms
  • A hallway area

While we are used to large commercial painting projects, we had to be careful to stick to the deadline. Our timeline for this was two and a half weeks. We finished it on-schedule, and the hotel was able to unveil its newly-renovated spaces as planned.

Materials and Processes

The most interesting aspect of this project was the special glossy coating we used on six large pillars. After the normal surface preparation, we applied a special base coat with the colorant. Next came a metallic top coat for a unique, elegant finish. While it's not flashy, the glossy finish has an amazing depth and richness to it, wouldn't you agree?

Besides the pillars, we also painted the ceilings, casings, crown moldings, and baseboard. We used ultra-flat white for the ceilings. The other moldings were all semi-gloss, either white or gray.

Coordinating the Project

On a commercial remodeling project like this, it is inevitable that we end up coordinating our services with the other tradespeople. For this hotel painting venture, there were wallpaper installers, electricians, and carpenters who also needed to access this space. With good communication and management, we were all able to finish our individual parts of the project without stepping on each other's toes, or messing up each other's work. What a rewarding experience!

Customer Reviews

“Hello Matt,Just another notice of thanks to your wonderful crew, Rigoberto, Javier and John. They did fantastic work, with Rigo providing meticulous and conscientious attention to the details and excellent woodwork finishing, as evidenced by the beautiful fireplace. Javier did a fantastic job in the bathroom especially, it looks "brand new," and John always does quality work, both with the interior and exterior. I can tell they care about what they do. Rigo's "punch out" was very thorough, too. I will call again when I need some more work and will definitely recommend your company and fine crew. I also felt as a homeowner, I could leave my house in their good hands during the day and that took a lot of worry from me, they were honest, prompt and reliable. They were also very kind, respectful and clean in their work, very professional. Thank you.”

“Awesome work by highly experienced, professional painters. They were: Conscious about the amount of time it would take. Ours had a lot of pre-work and took 3 weeks. Accommodating when we added a few last-minute changes Understanding when a heatwave hit and we remove some of the plastic sheeting over windows, which they had to put back up the next day. Accessible, especially the on-site crew (Hi Jose & Victor!) -- always answering questions and checking in. The end result is a perfect paint job that makes our 94-year-old house look brand new. I would definitely hire MBJ again”

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”

“Our paint crew did a great job and the foreman, Gersson was exceptionally great to work with. He was always available to answer questions, good at problem-solving, very patient, kind, and highly professional with great customer service. We definitely recommend this company, and Gersson and his crew.”

“MB Jessee just finished our exterior and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The foreman (Pedro) and lead painter (Ricardo) were incredible to work with: they communicated scheduling clearly, Ricardo was a joy to be around every day, the showed up early every day, were incredibly tidy and did great paint work. The final walk through experience was incredible. Pedro pointed out items I missed demonstrating a clear desire to complete another quality project. I highly recommend them. As others have noted they definitely aren't the cheapest but you quickly realize that you're getting what you pay for. The 3 year guarantee is also a nice touch since there are likely touch up items that will show up after the job is done.”
