San Francisco Board of Supervisors Approves Award of SFO Hotel Management & Branding Contract to Grand Hyatt

Four-star, on-airport hotel to be owned by SFO, managed by Grand Hyatt

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors today passed a resolution approving award by the San Francisco Airport Commission of a management and branding contract to the Grand Hyatt for a planned 350-room, four-star luxury hotel located on the grounds of the San Francisco International Airport (SFO), which is anticipated to open in mid-2019.  The Board resolution is subject to the approval of San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee.

“I am grateful to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors for approving this contract,” said Airport Director John L. Martin.  “The Grand Hyatt is recognized around the world for exceptional guest service, and with this approval we move one step closer in our vision to create the most innovative, luxurious, and environmentally sustainable on-airport hotel in the world.”

SFO will construct and own the property, with the Grand Hyatt providing branding and day-to-day management of the facility.  The SFO Grand Hyatt will feature approximately 350 rooms, 17,500 square feet of flexible meeting space, both full-service and casual restaurants, wine and sushi bar, rooftop cocktail lounge, health club, pool, and spa.  Located at the entrance to SFO, the 4.7 acre site is close to terminal buildings and parking garages, with direct access to the AirTrain light rail system.

Construction on the project is expected to begin in the spring of 2016, with completion in mid-2019.  The facility will also be designed to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) “Gold” certification for environmentally-sustainable design and operation.
