MCLEAN, VA—Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, a Hilton Worldwide luxury brand, has unveiled its newest property, Waldorf Astoria San Francisco, which will be the centerpiece of a two-million sq.-ft., mixed-used complex that will feature luxury entertainment, retail and office space.
The hotel will reside within the first 21 stories of a signature tower designed by the architecture firm Foster + Partners. Located at Mission St. between Ecker and 1st St., the property will be situated in the city’s Transbay neighborhood, in the center of a redevelopment project surrounding the Transbay Transit Center.
“With the revitalization taking place around the Transbay Transit Center, this neighborhood is poised to become a major hub for locals and global luxury travelers, which underscores Waldorf Astoria’s commitment of being in the center of coveted gateway destinations,” said John T.A. 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.”
Hospitality design firm, Hirsch Bedner Associates is the designer for this project.
