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

“I had my wooden kitchen cabinets painted white. Anabal and Danielle were doing the job. I have nothing but praise for them. They came on time, cleaned up every day, were respective, friendly and helpful. If the rest of Jessee's crew are as great as Anabal and Danielle, this company will go far.”

“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”

“In September, MBJessee finished painting two sides of our 3-story condominium building (six owners). We were impressed by the professionalism of the company and every one of its workers, Matt Jessee couldn't have been more helpful in planning the project. His painters were well-trained, easy to communicate with and eager to please. In addition to painting the stucco, they made extensive repairs on windows and frames, which will save us considerable money in the future. They finished earlier than anticipated, with as many as five men working on the job, and the scaffolding came down the next day. All of us were delighted with the results. Now my husband and I are looking forward to having MB Jessee paint our own apartment later this month. Matt and Gustavo (who will be our crew leader again) have explained how they will work to make the painting proceed smoothly while we're living here, and they have been endlessly patient with our protracted decision-making process. If you look at their website, you'll learn that MB Jessee is an exemplary company that takes good care of its workers as well as its customers, and contributes public service projects to the community. All in all, we can't recommend MB Jessee highly enough.”

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”
