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

“The painters at MB Jesse are top notch! Cesar's team was super friendly and helpful. They were very polite and accommodating. Their expertise in everything painting related was evident in their attention to detail and efficiency painting tricky spaces. The apartment looks brand new!”

— Adam Swisher

“Dear Matt,You must be so proud of your men! They were fantastic to have around. Polite, courteous and hardworking. I am so pleased with the outcome of our home--in fact, I couldn't be any more pleased than I am!”

— Mrs. S
San Leandro

“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 walkthrough 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.”

— Paul Markovich

“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.”

— Judy Tufo, SFBA NARI Executive Director

“Julie, by the way, I have never been so impressed with the service of a painting job before! It was like magical elves came and painted our walls without us having to do a thing! It looks amazing and just wanted to let you know how happy we are. Thanks”

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

— Mike C.

“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.”
