BEI San Francisco, formerly the Holiday Inn San Francisco-Civic Center, opened following a $30-million top-to-bottom renovation. An investment by CapBEI with a sister property in Beijing, BEI has 396 guestrooms, two reestaurants and 10,000 square feet of co-working, meeting and event space.

Involved in the design of the property were iu + bibliowicz Architects and Steinberg Hart.

There are seven completely remodeled room categories, each averaging 350 square feet. These include BEI’s “Stay Work Play” rooms that have beds that tuck away to transform living space into working space with an additional outdoor terrace for breakout meetings and sessions.

A new 800 square foot fitness center will be located near the outdoor terrace to complement wellness programming. 

BEI will open in Spring 2019 two new food and beverage concepts on the ground floor: Sum and Ren.

Situated 20 minutes from San Francisco International Airport, BEI San Francisco offers access to Hayes Valley, SOMA and Fillmore District; as well attractions and event venues like the Orpheum Theatre, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, San Francisco Opera, Moscone Center and SFJAZZ Center.
