SH Hotels & Resorts, the sustainable brand management company founded by Starwood Capital Group Chairman/CEO Barry Sternlicht, has revealed that the Treehouse Hotels brand will make its U.S. debut in Sunnyvale, CA, in the heart of Silicon Valley, in late 2023.
“Sunnyvale is the epicenter of the bold ideas, disruptive technology, imagination and innovation that make Silicon Valley an icon and inspiration for the world,” said Sternlicht. “Every inch of this playful property, from mismatched materials to secret nooks and unexpected artwork, creatively combines the energy and intensity of Silicon Valley’s high-tech culture with the simpler, older, more natural charms of the Santa Clara Valley’s pre-Internet era.”
The property repurposes several existing structures and elevates a new six-story building constructed offsite using modular methods. The majority of its 254 rooms, including 21 suites, provide private outdoor spaces, from ground-floor patios to balconies and terraces on the upper floors. Interiors include sofas built into wooden bookcases, farm table distressed wooden desks and wood ceiling beams.
Trees felled in construction are reclaimed and crafted by local artists into socially conscious, nature-themed sculptures fashioned onsite.
Amenities will include a café with indoor and outdoor seating, a garden offering games and a beer garden, a courtyard pool with cabanas, a hot tub and pizza oven and a fitness facility. The property will also include three meeting rooms and an event space crafted from a rustic barn.
The brand’s first property, Treehouse Hotel London, opened in November 2019, while Treehouse Hotel Manchester, the brand’s second UK location, is expected to open early next year and Treehouse Hotel Brickell in Miami is set to debut in 2025.
