JLL arranged the sale of the Sheraton Fisherman’s Wharf, located in San Francisco. Zurich-based ACRON AG purchased the 531-key property, representing the largest single-asset transaction in the city year-to-date. The hotel will maintain its affiliation with the Sheraton brand and be managed by Pyramid Hotel Group.

The hotel is located within walking distance from Jefferson Street, Piers 39 and 41, Ghirardelli Square, North Beach and the Taylor & Bay Street cable car turnaround.

“The hotel has been well-maintained by ownership and is located in the heart of a high-profile, gateway market,” said John Strauss, managing director of JLL’s Hotels & Hospitality Group, who led the transaction. “As an iconic tourist destination, Fisherman’s Wharf is one of the best-performing hotel sub-markets in the United States.
