The construction boom in the city won't just be bringing new condos and office towers. This week a new hotel on Fourth Street got approved by Planning, and there are at least two more we know about that are coming down the pike within a few blocks.

First off, we should mention the Hotel Zetta, which has already opened in what was formerly known as the Milano on Fifth Street. It's a project from the L.A.-based Viceroy Hotel Group, and developer Brad Korzen, and features a sleek new lobby by Dawson Design with its own giant Plinko game. By fall, the hotel will also be home to a new restaurant called The Cavalier from the team behind Marlowe and Park Tavern.

The Viceroy is also behind a renovation of the Renoir Hotel on Market between 7th and Jones, and that project is still in the planning stages.

Then comes a new Hampton Inn, complete with a green roof, which has already begun construction on Mission between 5th and 6th. It will be 15 stories and 174 rooms once it's complete.

Then there's the project that was approved by Planning yesterday, which does not yet have a name, on the site of what's now Olivet University, at 4th and Clementina. That project will be 220 rooms and will be designed by Axis Architecture + Design, with a restaurant on the ground floor.

It's certainly a sign of a local economy in a robust rebound. But that's a lot of new rooms for conventioneers and tourists! Brace yourselves, SoMa folk.
