Hilton San Francisco Union Square completes $53M redesign

The Hilton San Francisco Union Square announced the completion of a $53-million redevelopment project that transformed the hotel’s 550 guestrooms and function space.

The renovation is part of a larger scope of major projects by individual hotels above standard annual capital expenditures across the global portfolio of Hilton Hotels & Resorts, the flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide. Beginning in 2011, the projects currently total more than $3 billion during a three-year period.

Guestroom enhancements include the addition of a second window to improve views of the city, new entry doors, and wall insulation for sound-proofing. Additional improvements to the guest experience also included new telecommunication equipment incorporating both wired and wireless Internet access and added conveniences such as furniture, plush beds, mini-refrigerators and contemporary bathrooms.

The hotel’s 20,000-square-foot Continental Ballroom and 31 of the additional meeting rooms - ranging in size from 430 square feet to 1,090 square feet – have been expanded and updated with contemporary design features. With the addition of the new 13,500 square-foot Golden Gate Ballroom, Hilton San Francisco Union Square now offers 134,500 square feet of function space.

The hotel’s public areas – including the outdoor pool area – were also renewed with contemporary furnishings and fixtures. In the hotel’s corridors, guests can enjoy 11 art pieces created by artist Pamela Nielsen, exclusively for Hilton San Francisco Union Square . The triptychs were commissioned by the hotels and inspired by the sunsets, sunrises and the skyline of San Francisco.

Hilton San Francisco Union Square, steps from Union Square, also offers a fitness center, outdoor heated swimming pool, whirlpool, and the Urban Tavern restaurant, a modern Gastro Pub.
