Rosewood Hotels and Resorts has announced plans for a 180-room property in San Francisco’s Transbay District.
The hotel will occupy 15 floors of a 61-storey new-build skyscraper designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, and will be connected via a pedestrian skybridge to the city’s Salesforce Park, which sits on top of the Salesforce Transit Centre.
Scheduled to open in 2026, the hotel will feature the group’s Asaya wellness concept with indoor lap pool and fitness centre, as well as “expansive event spaces”, a signature indoor-outdoor restaurant, patisserie, living room and Rosewood’s private lounge concept the Manor Club.
Rosewood San Francisco will join the group’s existing Californian properties – Rosewood Sand Hill in Menlo Park and Rosewood Miramar Beach in Montecito.
In March 2020 the group outlined its global expansion plans, with 32 projects under development at the time, and plans to invest over US$300 million in renovations at various Rosewood properties, including Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas; The Carlyle, a Rosewood hotel in New York; and Rosewood Washington DC.
Earlier this year Rosewood confirmed that its second London property – housed within the former US Embassy on Grosvenor Square – would be called The Chancery Rosewood.
Commenting on the San Francisco announcement Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group, said:
“As one of the most dynamic and innovative cities in North America, San Francisco offers an eclectic mix of culture, cuisine, art, technology and adventure, and is an ideal destination for the Rosewood brand.
“We are thrilled to be a part of this revolutionary new development and look forward to providing our affluential explorers and San Franciscans alike with a stylish and refined new icon to enjoy for years to come.”
