Note: Watch for expanded coverage of the Sheraton’s opening from news reporter Jon Lewis in his Monday column. 

The new Sheraton Redding Hotel at the Sundial Bridge opened Thursday with a 2 p.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony.  It was a rainy day, but the rain stopped before the opening ceremony began.  The Sheraton was 10 years in the making with a $20-million dollar cost. And in the process, more than 80 new jobs were created.

The hotel’s interior design echoes the natural beauty of the adjacent Turtle Bay Exploration Park.  The hotel is the smallest of Marriott International Inc., and has 130 rooms that feature floor-to-ceiling windows and walk-in showers and tub.  There are six suites, including an 1100-square foot Presidential Suite.  A 1,200 square-foot fitness center is adjacent to a heated outdoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi.  A 4,000 square-foot ballroom can be broken down into smaller breakout rooms.

The Mosaic Restaurant offers Italian cuisine with California wine.  Behind the Mosaic a garden provides fresh vegetables that are used for food served in the restaurant. If the garden is a success, the plan is for a larger vegetable garden and fruit orchard in the arboretum.  The Mosaic is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

I found the hotel to be quite elegant and refreshing.  Staff – from the bellhop to front desk, and even cooks in the kitchen – were quite friendly and eager for the Sheraton to open.

Personally, I’m looking forward to eating at the Mosaic.

    The price point for rooms seems very fair – maybe even a bit low, for a 4-star joint. A pretty good deal for a room, even taking into consideration that this is Redding. I hope that the rates are not just teasers, to get the place ramped-up at the opening.

    I am sure that their room prices will increase during Kool April Nites, the Rodeo week, etc. This is fine, as it is a supply/demand situation. Also, it is good to have a 4 star lodging option in Redding. This will likely draw some people from the freeway who would ordinarily keep driving to Sacto, or if north, to Medford, etc.

    There are no standards for these star ratings for hotels. Just so you know. They can give themselves whatever star rating they choose.

      There are Very strict and Precise criteria Spelled out to receive even one of the coveted ‘Mobil Stars’ in the Global Hospitality Business . But a great device to leverage a uniformed Redding public out of more of their precious land in the middle of the city that was a natural wild land park , to asphalt over @ bargain basement prices. I sent a list of requirements for the ‘Mobil Stars’ to the newspaper and they wanted to edit it till there was almost nothing was left..this was ‘before’ the public petition forced a vote on the issue. The City threw out the ‘Four Star’ Hotel to be built every chance they got ,and barely got the approval [1.200votes] to buy the land & build… w/o a ‘Environmental Impact ‘ analysis …grandfathering it in on a very old one done for Turtle Bay… It has made me angry and nauseous to watch how City Hall operates…I could go on about the ongoing Disaster w/ the Kutras family that started this whole mess.but I won’t ….pls. Stop throwing around the ‘Four Star’ deal….You Cannot ‘ Build a Four’ Star’ Anything ! You must Earn them…xo,b

    I understand at least one of the cooks is exceptional! Just hope it is not all pasta.

    They are a new facility and have not earned the four star rating which each restaurant, hotel, etc. has to earn on their own.
    The photos are lovely and we are looking forward to visiting Mosaic next week. Praying for a top four star facility eventually and hoping they do well in Redding. Since we no longer have Anselmos, this will be a welcome addition to Clearies for fine dining.

      Check out Armondo’s Gallery Restaurant in the downtown mall. It’s in the old red brick bank building on Butte Street. Quite eclectic! Delicious food and the service is the friendliest in town.
