Westbrook Partners has selected Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts to manage its recently acquired San Francisco hotel. Currently known as the Loews Regency San Francisco, the 155-room hotel will be renamed Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero in 2020 following renovations.

Westbrook Partners acquired the hotel from Loews Hotels & Co. in May. Loews will continue to manage the hotel throughout 2019. Housed on the top 11 floors of a 48-story building, it will undergo renovations to all rooms and suites, corridors and other public areas before opening under the Four Seasons name.

Four Seasons is also partnered with Westbrook Partners on its two other San Francisco ventures: the Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco, which it opened in 2001, and the Four Seasons Private Residences at 706 Mission Street, San Francisco, coming in 2020.
