Eddie Kaen came to Pininfarina to create a hotel with emotional flare.


Whilst Design Manger at Pininfarina, Carsten Astheimer directed the project creating The Keating Hotel – a luxury boutique like no other in San Diego, conveniently located in the heart of the Gas lamp Quarter.

Built in 1890, the historic office building was stripped back to the original building bricks which are complimented with modern materials giving a style of industrial sophistication.

Every “stanza” comes fully equipped with the most lavish amenities available, including Bang & Olufsen HD entertainment systems, in-room Lavazza espresso machines, Jacuzzi hot tubs and Frette linens.


“A hotel with modern sex appeal” – a unique luxury boutique hotel experience – a taste of Italian Design in the heart of San Diego.
