Hilton San Francisco Union Square Completes Redesign Project
SAN FRANCISCO—The Hilton San Francisco Union Square today announced the completion of a $53 million redevelopment project that transformed 550 of the hotel's guestrooms and function space. The renovation is part of a larger scope of projects by individual hotels above standard annual capital expenditures across the global portfolio of Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide. Beginning in 2011, the projects currently total more than $3 billion during a three year period. READER COMMENTS
"We are happy to unveil these transformations to our business and leisure guests as well as meeting and event planners," said Michael Dunne, General Manager, Hilton San Francisco Union Square, in an announcement. "The enhancements enable us to deliver an even more impressive experience and ensure our position as a world-class destination and center-city's premier hotel and conference venue."
Guestroom renovations include the addition of a second window, new entry doors, and wall insulation for sound-proofing. An additional element of the project includes new telecommunications equipment incorporating both wired and wireless internet access.
The hotel's 20,000-square-foot Continental Ballroom and 31 of the additional meeting rooms, ranging in size from 430 to 1,090 square feet, have been expanded. With the addition of the new 13,500 square-foot Golden Gate Ballroom Hilton San Francisco Union Square now offers 134,500 square feet of function space.
The hotel's public areas including the outdoor pool area were also renewed with new furnishings and fixtures. Hotel corridors were also updated with art pieces created by artist, Pamela Nielsen, exclusively for Hilton San Francisco Union Square. The triptychs were commissioned by the hotels and inspired by the sunsets, sunrises, and skyline of San Francisco.
