Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has been selected by an affiliate of Westbrook Partners, a real estate investment management company, to manage its hotel in the 345 California Center building in San Francisco’s financial district. Currently known as the Loews Regency (and previously The Mandarin Oriental), the hotel will be renamed Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero in 2020 following renovations.
Housed on the top 11 floors of the 48-storey building (the city’s fourth tallest, pictured left of the Transamerica Pyramid), the hotel’s 155 rooms and suites afford enviable skyline views including the Coit Tower and sweeping views of the Bay, including landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island. Once renovations are complete, the hotel will offer an all-day restaurant and bar and a fitness centre including treatment rooms. 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 centre. The current hotel will be unveiled as a Four Seasons in 2020.
Westbrook Partners purchased the hotel from Loews Hotels & Co in May 2019. Loews will continue to manage the hotel throughout 2019.
