Loews Hotels to buy the Mandarin Oriental San Francisco

Loews Hotels & Resorts entered into an agreement to purchase the 158-room Mandarin Oriental San Francisco Hotel. The acquisition is expected to close in late March.

"This will be our first entree into San Francisco, a major gateway market and a very important location for Loews Hotels' core customer base," said Paul Whetsell, president & CEO of Loews Hotels & Resorts. "We have been exploring opportunities to enter the San Francisco market for some time, so we are thrilled to add such a respected five-star hotel to our growing brand."

Located in the heart of San Francisco's Financial District, the hotel, which is currently managed by Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, is situated on the top 11 floors of San Francisco's third-tallest office building, showcasing uninterrupted views of San Francisco and its bay. The hotel has 158 guest rooms, the Brasserie S&P restaurant, over 5,000 square feet of meeting space and a new 8,000 square foot spa and fitness center.
