Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts has announced its newest property, Waldorf Astoria San Francisco.
The property will be the centrepiece of a two million square-foot, mixed-used complex that will feature luxury entertainment, retail and office space.
Destined to become the preferred hotel for global luxury travellers, Waldorf Astoria San Francisco will reside within the first 21 stories of a signature tower designed by the architecture firm Foster + Partners.
Located at Mission Street between Ecker and 1st Streets, Waldorf Astoria San Francisco will be ideally situated in the city’s exciting new Transbay Neighbourhood, in the centre of a vast redevelopment project surrounding the Transbay Transit Centre.
“With the revitalisation taking place around the Transbay Transit Centre, this neighbourhood is poised to become a major hub for locals and global luxury travellers, which underscores Waldorf Astoria’s commitment of being in the centre of coveted gateway destinations,” said John Vanderslice, global head, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts.
“Waldorf Astoria San Francisco marks our third property in California – behind La Quinta Resort in Palm Springs and the future Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills.
“We are thrilled to accept this extraordinary opportunity to extend our unforgettable experiences, the finest amenities, and True Waldorf Service up the West Coast.”
Bordered by Market Street on the north, Embarcadero on the east, Folsom Street on the south, and Hawthorne Street to the west, the Transbay Neighbourhood is an inspirational environment onto itself.
Transportation friendly with wide sidewalks and bike paths, the neighbourhood has a vibrant mix of shops and restaurants, as well as contemporary green spaces which have been carefully planned as key components of area.
The hotel will offer an elegant and spacious spa and will also feature an iconic Peacock Alley serving a San Francisco approach to the legendary cuisine and libations that have established Waldorf Astoria as synonymous with unforgettable luxury experiences.
From arrival to departure, guests will be embraced by the hotel’s inspirational environments and welcomed by True Waldorf Service.
Waldorf Astoria San Francisco’s Personal Concierges will ensure that each guest receives anticipatory and personalised service; before, during, and after their stay.
