VICEROY HOTEL GROUP EXPANDS TO SAN FRANCISCO
Following Extensive Renovation Hotel Milano to Re-launch As Part of Urban Retreat Collection
APRIL 4 2012 – Viceroy Hotel Group is proud to announce it has been selected as operator for Pebblebrook Hotel Trust’s newest acquisition in San Francisco, the Hotel Milano. Located in the heart of San Francisco next to the Moscone Convention Center, the full-service hotel has 108 guest rooms that will be completely renovated by Pebblebrook later this year. This new property will then re-launch as part of Viceroy Hotel Group’s Urban Retreat Collection. Viceroy Hotel Group currently manages two other properties for Pebblebrook, the Delfina in Santa Monica and Viceroy Miami.
“We are pleased that our partnership with Pebblebrook continues to grow through the addition of San Francisco” commented Nicholas Clayton of Viceroy Hotel Group. “This vibrant city ranks as one of the world’s most coveted travel destinations and the soon-to-be renovated Hotel Milano promises to breathe new life into the city’s hospitality sector.”
The extensive renovation will involve a substantial upgrade of the entire property, including guest rooms, common areas and restaurant. Catering to both business and leisure travelers, the hotel is conveniently located in the SoMA area of San Francisco, just blocks away from the Moscone Convention Center, Union Square and Financial District. Perfectly positioned near the Westfield San Francisco Shopping Center, hotel guests can enjoy an iconic shopping destination with over 170 world-class retailers and dining venues.
Viceroy Hotel Group’s Urban Retreat hotels capture the very essence of a boutique hotel, each with a distinct sense of place and a shared spirit of genuine hospitality.
