Fairmont Protests Hyatt Managing San Francisco Hotel

    While the San Francisco International Airport’s fate relies on a decision from the Board of Supervisors, the question of who manages the hotel still looms, according to San Francisco Examiner.

    Hyatt was selected among 11 hotel chains to manage the hotel, but the Fairmont, which came in second, came in second, and is now protesting the bidding process. Fairmont argues that Hyatt should have been excluded from the bid because its criteria prohibited those with hotels within a 10-mile radius of the airport. The nearby Burlingame Hyatt is a three-star hotel, and the restriction had only applied to four-star hotels.

    The board’s Budget and Finance Committee will vote on this issue on Nov. 18.
