Southern California-based RAR Hospitality is scheduled to open San Diego's first Tapestry Collection by Hilton property  in summer 2020. The Monsaraz is a partnership with local development firm Alliance Development. RAR Hospitality will own and operate the property, which will have 92 rooms, a restaurant and bar.

Los Angeles-based KNA Design will lead the interior design for The Monsaraz’s mid-century modern look and feel.

The hotel will have a distinct Portuguese theme, paying tribute to the Portuguese settlers that landed on Point Loma in the 1500s. The hotel will have a strong storyline that ties into each space of the hotel, allowing for guests to immerse themselves in the local culture.
