San Francisco to get a Second Four Seasons

The Former Loews Regency San Francisco will become a Four Seasons following the completion of renovations next year

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts is set to manage what is currently the Loews Regency San Francisco and rename it the Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero in 2020, following renovations.

The city with a rich cultural landscape, legendary 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 and also a tight market for hospitality offerings.

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 center 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. Renovations will include all rooms and suites, corridors and other public areas, in addition to a new fitness center.

Four Seasons has had a presence in the Bay Area for nearly two decades, beginning with the opening of Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco in the Yerba Buena arts district 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, the Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley, 90 minutes north of San Francisco in California’s wine country, is scheduled to open later this year.
