Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero Set for May Opening Following Transformation

USA, San Francisco, California. May 05, 2020

Boasting the area's best views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay and the glittering city below, the new Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero is now confirming arrivals beginning May 1, 2020. Located on the top 11 floors of the 48-storey 345 California Center in the heart of the city's Financial District, the hotel will reopen this spring after extensive enhancements as a Four Seasons experience.

"As Four Seasons continues to grow its diverse and dynamic California Collection, we are delighted to offer a new vantage point from which to enjoy one of America's favourite cities," says Vince Parrotta, Four Seasons President, Hotel Operations - Americas West. "And further, it is my great pleasure to introduce Bob Megargle, General Manager of the newest luxury address in the city."

Robert Megargle was most recently the Hotel Manager at the original Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco on Market Street and in 2016 was the first hotel professional to be named to San Francisco Business Times' "40 Under 40" in recognition of his leadership. Prior to his arrival in the city in 2014, his tenure includes positions in Maui, New York and his home city of Detroit.

"This Hotel truly has a modern design perspective that's enriched by stunning views and brought to life by our amazing people," says Megargle. "With the city continuing to set an inspiring example for growth, we fit right into the heart of the action and look forward to strengthening our connection within the community."

In preparing for the Hotel's debut as a Four Seasons this spring, interior design firm Marzipan was inspired by key moments in the region's history and symbols of the city itself. All 155 rooms and suites have been completely redesigned, with new natural wood floors, modern furnishings, a warm palette of textures with surprising splashes of colour, deep soaking tubs and flexible floor plans that allow guests to truly make themselves at home. And, every room boasts stunning panoramic views.

In addition, Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero will offer a street-level restaurant and bar, 24/7 fitness centre and business centre. Located in the heart of the Financial District, the Hotel is also steps away from Union Square, the Embarcadero waterfront and Fisherman's Wharf. A 24-hour concierge team can assist with trip planning, whether enjoying a family vacation in the Bay Area, a romantic weekend getaway, or even a few hours of leisure during a business trip.

Four Seasons in San Francisco and the Bay Area Four Seasons has long set the standard for luxury hospitality in the Bay Area, beginning with the opening of Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco, which includes Private Residences, in the Yerba Buena, South of Market 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.

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
