PARK JAMES HEADS TO MENLO PARK

Boutique Design

The 61-room Park James Hotel, opening this month, will feature a chic contemporary design from Mark Hornberger of Hornberger + Worstell with interiors by Parisa O’Connell & Clinton Miller of Parisa O’Connell Interior Design. “No Strangers Here, Only New Friends” is etched upon the entryway to the hotel’s lobby that showcases social and work spaces to appeal to its targeted guests. It also opens up to an indoor/outdoor bar and the O+V Courtyard, which provides a lush outdoor oasis complete with movable seating and communal tables.

Guestrooms feature an earthy color palette to drive home a natural aesthetic. A connection to the outdoors is also key here, as large windows open out to 180-degree panoramic views. Rooms are outfitted with Murphy beds to maximize the square footage.

The hotel also offers 1,200 sq. ft. of meeting space and farm-to-table restaurant Oak +Violet. The eatery is anchored by an open kitchen and has an outdoor patio. Guests can also snag a seat at the restaurant’s Experience Dining Bar, covered in Connemara marble, to sample the chef’s daily off-menu dishes.
