Built in 1975, the existing Vagabond Inn Executive Hotel (Old Town) will undergo a cosmetic remodel to upgrade the hotel. This remodel falls in line with a resurgence of Downtown Sacramento developments, which includes the Fall 2016 completion of the Golden 1 Center, the future FC Railyards Soccer Stadium, and the Riverfront Reconnection Project. Completed in phases, the overall design of the hotel will marry modern design with mindful nods to its Chinatown neighborhood.
A fresh coat of paint to its traditional clay tileroof, and existing columns & walls are washed in neutral grays and whites. The existing storefront system at each guestroom is replaced with new doors, 4 x 6 window, and stucco wall. The linear language of the new windows is accented by a citrus green paint, which extends throughout each floor. The new wood siding at each stair tower provides a complimentary texture and warmth to the exterior material palette.
