Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has been selected by an affiliate of Westbrook Partners, a privately-owned, fully integrated real estate investment management company, to manage its hotel in the 345 California Centre building in San Francisco’s financial district. Currently known as the Loews Regency San Francisco, the hotel will be renamed Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero in 2020 following renovations.
Talking about this development, Bart Carnahan, executive vice president, global business development and portfolio management, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts said: “With a rich cultural landscape, unmatched culinary experiences and a market strengthened by the region’s renowned tech boom, San Francisco is one of the country’s most dynamic, thriving cities. Due in large part to these strong market conditions, we will to offer guests a second Four Seasons experience, enhancing our portfolio in the Bay Area.”
Housed on the top 11 floors of the 48-storey building (the city’s fourth tallest), the hotel’s 155 rooms and suites afford enviable skyline views, including the Coit Tower and Transamerica Building, and sweeping views of the Bay, including landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island. Once renovations are complete, the hotel will also offer an all-day restaurant and bar and a well-equipped fitness centre including treatment rooms. With an entrance at 222 Sansome Street, the hotel is centrally located in the city’s financial district and walking distance to Union Square, SoMa and San Francisco’s tallest building, Salesforce Tower.
Westbrook Partners purchased the hotel from Loews Hotels & Co in May 2019. Loews will continue to manage the hotel throughout 2019.
