Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts will add a second property to its collection in San Francisco next year after being awarded the management contract of the former Loews Regency San Francisco. Lowes Hotels & Co sold the hotel to Westbrook Partners in May 2019 who in turn announced the deal with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts last week.
The luxury property will undergo extensive renovations before reemerging as the Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero.
Housed on the top 11 floors of the 48-storey building, the Hotel’s 155 rooms and suites afford enviable skyline views of the Coit Tower and Transamerica Building and sweeping views of the Bay, including landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island.
Located at 222 Sansome Street, the Hotel is centrally located in the city’s financial district, within walking distance of Union Square, SoMa and San Francisco’s tallest building, Salesforce Tower.
Renovations will improve upon all rooms, suites, corridors and other public areas while also constructing a new fitness centre for guests. Once renovations on the hotel are completed, it will be unveiled as a Four Seasons experience in 2020.
Four Seasons already has a strong presence in the Bay Area, including Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco which opened in 2001, followed by the opening of Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley at East Palo Alto in 2006 and, coming in 2020, the company’s first standalone residential project in the city: Four Seasons Private Residences at 706 Mission Street, San Francisco.
In addition to these properties, Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley, which is just 90 minutes north of San Francisco, is scheduled to open later this year.
