Fairmont signs deal for largest property in the US

Second San Diego based hotel slated to open in 2027

Fairmont Hotels & Resorts will bolster its presence in California, with the luxury hotelier signing a management deal to operate a new property in downtown San Diego.

Slated to open in 2027, Fairmont Manchester San Diego will occupy a prime location on the North Embarcadero of the San Diego Bay, directly across from the USS Midway Aircraft Museum, adjacent to the Cruise Ship Terminal, and within walking distance of the San Diego Convention Center and the Gaslamp Quarter. The hotel is part of a landmark development transforming San Diego’s downtown waterfront with over 5 acres of green space and more than 1.7 million square feet of best-in-class offices, retail, restaurants, public art and entertainment.

The 36-storey tower will feature 1,160 rooms, including 69 suites and Fairmont Gold, the brand’s distinctive hotel-within-a-hotel experience boasting VIP service, exclusive lounge and private reception desk.
