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

“Our paint crew did a great job and the foreman, Gersson was exceptionally great to work with.

“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”

“Julie,Just to let you know I am very appreciative of your crew catching the plumbing/mold problem. It was very astute of them. I wanted to let you know that again your crew has done excellent work here, please pass this along to Mr. Jessee. There are some bumps in the road here, but the painting and your crew has not been one of them. Their work is the only thing going right currently, and this crew is very nice and respectful. It is much appreciated. Thank you 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!”

— Tim Tyson

“In all the years I've worked with MB Jessee, I'm always so impressed by your crews. They are so respectful of everything--you never even know they're there! Except that the paint looks amazing when they're gone. We've had one showing of our home and already have an offer. I'm sure it is because the paint looks so beautiful.”

“Thank you for the support you have given the Women's Cancer Resource Center over the past year!”

— Margo - Director Women's Cancer Resource Center

“I loved working with M.B. Jessee from start to finish on a relatively small paint job that grew a bit. I felt in very good hands from the moment Matt Jessee came out to give me the estimate and talk about my job. He was very easy to talk to and he handled my changes very well. Then the actual work done by Rigoberto and Mario was impeccable. They were neat and meticulous and the paint job looks beautiful. I could not have asked for more and when I did, they accommodated me 100%. I will not hesitate to call M.B. Jessee again and to refer them to friends.”

— Nancy Kurkjian

“The finish on my kitchen cabinets had failed, becoming tacky and grimy around the handles. M B Jessee gave me a reasonable quote, far below some others, and did an outstanding job, striping the original varnish and refinishing with a new lacquer finish. The cabinets look like new. Work was done 1 day faster than estimated. The crew was extremely hard-working, considerate, and neat. Highly recommend M B Jessee.”

“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.”
