SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/22/12 -- The Fairmont San Francisco hotel is celebrating one of its most iconic guests, Tony Bennett, with a special suite dedicated to him and his unique place in the hotel's storied history. The Fairmont San Francisco's famed Diplomat Suite, Bennett's favorite "home away from home," will now be dedicated to giving guests a one-of-a kind opportunity to experience luxurious accommodations characterized by elegant décor inspired by the world-renowned performer and his connection to the City by the Bay. A just released new giclée print of one of Bennett's original paintings entitled "Golden Gate Bridge" will be launched during the anniversary weekend and will be available for purchase exclusively in San Francisco at The Fairmont San Francisco hotel's Front Desk, as well as through www.tonybennett.com.
In December 1961, Tony Bennett took the stage of The Fairmont San Francisco's famed Venetian Room and performed his version of "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" for the first time. His lauded rendition of the beloved song has generated worldwide adoration and nostalgia for the city and is one of its official anthems.
The spacious Diplomat Suite, one of The Fairmont San Francisco hotel's renowned Presidential signature suites, is situated on the 22nd floor of the Tower Building and includes breathtaking views of the City and Bay that epitomize the visuals associated with the song's wistful lyrics. This luxury San Francisco hotel suite offers guests an ambience that perfectly represents the city, as well as Bennett, who has served as an ambassador for San Francisco and The Fairmont San Francisco throughout the world for five decades.
A 17-time Grammy Award-winner, who has sold millions of records, Bennett is also a distinguished visual artist, with several of his paintings in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution. His multifaceted artistic talent will be featured in the suite through three signed prints of his paintings, including the newly released giclée of the Golden Gate Bridge, which celebrates its 75th anniversary on May 27, 2012. The hotel will have a limited number of giclée prints of Bennett's Golden Gate Bridge painting available for purchase and is the only brick-and-mortar location in San Francisco where they will be for sale.
