The existing Vagabond Inn Executive Hotel (Old Town), built in 1975, will undergo an upgrade-oriented cosmetic remodel. 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 will be applied to its traditional clay tile roof. Its existing columns & walls will be washed in neutral grays and whites. The existing storefront system for each guestroom will be replaced with new doors, 4 x 6 windows, and stucco walls. The linear language of the new windows will be accented by a citrus green paint, which extends throughout each floor. The new wood siding at each stair tower will provide a complimentary texture and warmth to the exterior material palette.
