Description

BE BOLD WITH US!   Join Hotel Emblem and Viceroy Hotel Group team today as our Controller

Beginning a career at Viceroy isn't just taking a new step. It's making a statement. Strike out and do what hasn't been done before. Create a sensation.

Viceroy is an exciting place to work. Because we didn't move to the forefront of the luxury hospitality industry by being simply ordinary. We got there because we are proud and ambitious. We defy expectations. We come up with new ideas and don't stop until they're a reality. We say yes when others dare not.

Does this sound like you, too? Good. Let's talk. 

ABOUT HOTEL EMBLEM

The 96-room property, formerly Hotel Rex, we opened early 2019 after an extensive renovation and re-brand inspired by the Beat Generation. San Francisco’s famous cultural movement awoke the nation’s rebellious side, and Hotel Emblem will bring the vibe back as a free-thinking enclave brimming with creative design elements and modern provocations. 

Every corner of Hotel Emblem is being reimagined to spark conversation and empower guests to think and act boldly. Experiences include a cocktail-focused lounge, lobby with a book-filled Writer’s Alcove, and stylishly eclectic guestrooms. Throughout the spaces, guests will be inspired by figurative and literal pages from the works that defined the Beat Generation. In addition to setting a counterculture scene, the hotel offers the warm hospitality that Viceroy guests are accustomed to, along with unique access to the best San Francisco has to offer.

Hotel Emblem is ideally located in the heart of the city, at the confluence of two storied neighborhoods, Union Square and Nob Hill, and mere blocks away from Jackson Square, the historic and culturally rich epicenter of the Beat Generation. The hotel is owned by DiamondRock Hospitality Company and is newly a member of The Viceroy Urban Retreats, poised to redefine the modern hotel experience.
