In case anyone doesn't know, the hotel across the "alley" which has had so many affiliations and names over the years that I can't keep up (currently Park Central SF??) has recently announced plans to become a Hyatt Regency and committed to an extensive rehab program. I'm not sure what this means for the "alley" but it could become an elegant passage.

Hyatt Regency San Francisco Downtown SoMa

Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H) announced today that a Hyatt affiliate entered into a franchise agreement with 50 Third Street Owner LP for Park Central San Francisco to join the Hyatt portfolio as an affiliated hotel, effective Friday, December 18, 2020. The hotel is managed by Highgate and expected to rebrand to Hyatt Regency San Francisco Downtown SoMa, following significant renovations. The 681-room Park Central San Francisco, located in the heart of San Francisco's south of market (SoMa) neighborhood, will undergo a multi-million-dollar renovation starting in early 2021, that will include a full redesign of guestrooms, transformation of the meeting and event spaces, ground floor lobby area and food and beverage experience, as well as a relocation and expansion of the fitness center.

Once the hotel joins the Hyatt Regency brand, it will be the third Hyatt Regency property in the San Francisco area, joining Hyatt Regency San Francisco in the financial district steps away from the iconic Embarcadero and Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport. Hyatt Regency San Francisco Downtown SoMa is expected to be the 10th Hyatt hotel in the San Francisco area.

Pedestrian - I had not heard of the Park Central San Francisco changing hands, again. Many years ago it was a French branded hotel (Le Meridian?). It was painted in two shades of gray for a silly reason (to imitate more than one building or some such nonsense). The alley has gone through a few changes through the years & now has several abstract sculptures. To my eye it is a bleak space, but others may disagree.

As I understand it, the hotel is not changing hands but simply being rebranded. This happens a lot. These days the hotel management brands like Hyatt or Sheraton or whatever frequently don't own the properties. They are commonly owned by REITs or some other real estate investment company and managed under contract by the well-known brands. Also, those brands have their standards (room size, in-house facilities, services, furniture and other quality etc) and when a hotel changes brands it often has to undergo a rehab to meet the standards of the new brand. That's what's happening here.

Pedestrian - thanks again for the info. Yes, I have heard of this arrangement before. A cardboard façade!

It seems that the hotel will be following a third way, as a Hyatt franchise, not managed by Hyatt. I saw no indication that the current management would change.

Hyatt Hotels came late to franchising (unlike Hilton and many others), preferring to actively manage any hotel with the Hyatt name, either owned or under management contract. I was sorry to see that change, but money talks (just like it did with Westin).
