Handlery Hotels completes renovations on 2 Calif. properties

SAN FRANCISCO--Handlery Hotels has unveiled multi-million dollar renovations to its two California properties, the Handlery Union Square Hotel at 351 Geary Street in San Francisco, and the Handlery Hotel and Resort, at 950 Hotel Circle North in San Diego.

Renovations at both properties have provided a refreshed and invigorated spirit to the European charm at the San Francisco hotel and a rejuvenated update to the family-friendly character at the San Diego resort. Updates include refurbished guestrooms and public spaces and the addition of a new fitness facility in San Francisco.

The Handlery Union Square Hotel is among the premier properties in the West and is in one of San Francisco’s most sought-after locations. The Handlery Hotel & Resort San Diego is a leading full-service, family-friendly resort near major San Diego attractions.

“With the renovations and overall updates at both locations, we offer the amenities and comforts that today’s traveler expects. We also continue to acknowledge our family-owned heritage and showcase the personalized customer service for which we have become known.”

“We’re proud of the fresh look our new designs have given the two hotels,” says Jon Handlery, Handlery Hotels President/General Manager and third-generation operating family member. “With the renovations and overall updates at both locations, we offer the amenities and comforts that today’s traveler expects. We also continue to acknowledge our family-owned heritage and showcase the personalized customer service for which we have become known.”

Handlery Hotels is one of the last remaining family-owned independent hoteliers in the West. The Handlery Union Square Hotel features 377 guestrooms, each updated with contemporary comforts and today’s conveniences. Accommodations include the Historic Section, with bay windows and intricate detailing of traditional architectural charm, and also in the Premier Section, with larger rooms and a more metropolitan appeal. Rooms in both sections have been refurbished to provide such contemporary conveniences as 37-inch flat-panel TVs and luxury bedding – without departing from the European charm and historic atmosphere for which the hotel is known. The San Francisco property also boasts one of the only outdoor hotel swimming pools in the city.

The extensive improvements throughout the San Diego property include new custom furniture, plush high-end bedding, new carpeting and wall and window coverings in each of the 217 guestrooms. Marble-top desks with ergonomic desk chairs and 37-inch flat-panel TVs are also offered in every room. The resort’s common areas and event space have new carpeting and wall coverings, as well as state-of-the-art presentation technology, elegant new artwork and tropical landscaping.
