Located in the center of the lobby, the chic new design of Flights 101 Lounge has transformed the space – creating an inviting, contemporary focal point for locals and visitors to enjoy. With three-story floor-to-ceiling views of the bay, including a patio that overlooks the landing strips of San Francisco International Airport, the bar and restaurant offer one of the Bay Area’s best experiences. San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront recently elevated the guest experience throughout, with an extensive renovation of the guest rooms and meeting space. The completion of the Greatroom renovation and Flights 101 Lounge, marks a comprehensive $24 million upgrade to the entire hotel. 

Flights 101 Lounge offers the best of both worlds. For work or for play, the well-designed space is ideal for gatherings or stealing a moment alone. The back bar boasts a four-screen television multi-plex media wall with the option to view four different channels or see a single event on the big screen. For custom viewing, Flights 101 Lounge offers an app that allows guests to access the audio of their favorite program playing on the four-screen media wall from their personal device. Complimentary Wi-Fi is also available for guests. Charger-accessible seating emulates the work-hard personality of Silicon Valley while the fun, local-centric food menu and creative beverages echo the play-hard nature of the city.

The design was the work of Patricia Lopez of Baskervill Architecture & Planning in Richmond, Virginia. Inspired by the waterfront location, the space subtly marries the indoors with the outdoors, showcasing incredible views. The Greatroom is dressed in shades of gray with rich wood tones accented by chrome and copper details. Lush carpeting washed in blues and tans represents the sand and shore. Mid-century modern furnishings are perfectly positioned to create intimate gathering spots within the vibrant space. Plush, quilted club chairs surround wood grain tables for comfortable dining. Sleek sofas, leather armchairs and coffee tables offer the comforts of a modern living room. Communal seating is available at a long, gray stained table, set at an attractive angle in the heart of the lively surroundings. The expansive 25 seat bar is crowned by a magnificent chandelier with hundreds of cascading crystals that mimic the shape of water. Beautifully appointed outdoor patio space, complete with fire pits, overlooks the San Francisco International Airport landing strips, capturing one-of-a-kind views along the Peninsula waterfront.

Locally sourced and deliciously inspired, the menu at Flights 101 Lounge is right on time. The menu is focused on appetizers, small plates and entrées designed for arrival at your table within five, 10 or 20 minutes. With fresh seafood, creative California dishes and the craved and raved about Black Angus Beef Burger – the Flights 101 Lounge offers something for everyone to enjoy.  A diverse and innovative beverage menu showcases signature and barrel-aged cocktails, an array of local craft beers and regional wines. Chef Dion Hawkins and his culinary team often conduct Chef Tastings in Flights 101 Lounge to test new menu items and gather inspiration from guests.

To celebrate the renovation, San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront is offering overnight accommodations with a $50 food and beverage credit at Flights 101 Lounge and complimentary in-room Wi-Fi. For more information and to make your reservation, please see our special offer.
