Sky-High Luxury at the New Four Seasons Hotel Embarcadero
With a bold new look coupled with Four Seasons legendary service, Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero is now open. “As our California collection continues to grow, we are proud to expand our presence in one of America’s top destinations, giving locals and travellers alike another unique opportunity to stay with Four Seasons in this great city” says Christian Clerc, President, Global Operations, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “With soaring views, fully reimagined guest rooms and suites, and an ideal location near some of the city’s most popular attractions, we look forward to welcoming guests to our new luxury experience in San Francisco.”
Located near the Embarcadero area at Sansome and California Streets in the Financial District, guests are just steps – or a cable car ride – from major international businesses, Michelin-starred restaurants, luxury shopping in Union Square, walkable neighbourhoods such as North Beach and Chinatown, and the Embarcadero waterfront, including the twice-weekly farmers market in the Ferry Building. Just 20 minutes from San Francisco International Airport, the new Hotel is also a few blocks from the city’s original Four Seasons on Market Street in the SoMa district, known for its world-class museums.
“We are thrilled to welcome our first guests and to write a new story in Four Seasons history. Whether you’ll be leisurely enjoying a stay with us or here for new business, our team is here to be your extended family and to share in your San Francisco experiences” says the Hotel’s General Manager Robert Megargle.
The hotel’s 155 rooms and suites – all located on the top 11 floors of the 48-storey 345 California Center building – have been designed with flexibility in mind, for today’s travellers as well as local guests. Guests will experience the height of modern luxury in updated, beautifully appointed rooms and suites by design firm Marzipan, who were inspired by the incredible views across the city and beyond. The palette is bright and crisp, with splashes of colour punctuating bespoke furnishings and carefully chosen textures such as the custom-designed, hand-tufted wool rugs. Thoughtful details are everywhere, such as the threads of gold woven through the wall-coverings that harken back to the city’s gold rush history. Other features include spa-like bathrooms featuring freestanding soaking tubs placed to enjoy the sunshine during the day, and the glittering urban landscape by night.
The new two-bedroom Embarcadero Suites, with their spacious, studio-style layouts, are particularly suited to setting up two workstations, meeting colleagues or spreading out with family. For those working or distance learning, Four Seasons offers services including a loaner printer, extra chargers and cables, the ability to procure office supplies as needed, and tech support for hooking up devices to the 55 or 65-inch televisions.
A new, state-of-the-art fitness centre on the third floor features natural light pouring in through large windows overlooking Sansome Street.
Every room and suite at Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero offer panoramic views, allowing guests to spot such landmarks as the Golden Gate Bridge, the Transamerica Pyramid, Alcatraz Island, the Bay Bridge and San Francisco Bay. For another perspective, most floors feature a Sky Bridge with floor-to-ceiling windows on both sides. On the 48th floor, young and old will enjoy the “Eye Spy from the Sky” feature – the Hotel’s take on the classic “I Spy” game – added during the hotel’s extensive renovations.
In 2021, Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero will introduce an all-new street level restaurant showcasing California’s bountiful produce and world-renowned wines.
Also on the horizon, an open-air Sky Deck on the 40th floor will feature unique pop-ups and other events.
