The Grand Hyatt at SFO has opened, the only airport hotel at San Francisco International Airport, with 351 rooms including 22 suites. The $237 million luxury hotel sits on 4.2 acres and is directly connected to all of the airport’s terminals via an AirTrain stop. Many of its rooms feature direct views of the airport runway. An impressive art collection was curated exclusively for the hotel by the San Francisco Arts Commission.
“With the opening of Grand Hyatt at SFO, we offer travelers a new benchmark in airport hospitality,” said Airport Director Ivar C. Satero. “The new hotel reflects our commitment to deliver a world-class experience for our guests, with seamless access via our AirTrain system, sustainable building design, thoughtful service and amenities, and inspiring works of public art.”
Two restaurants consists of the Quail and Crane, offering Northern California delicacies made with Asian-inspired cooking techniques, and Two Crafts Market and Bar, featuring 24/7 on-the-go meals.
The hotel owes its modern, clean design to San Francisco architect Hornberger + Worstell, and its interior design to the BraytonHughes Design Studios and RoseBernard Studio. Design elements include unique sculptures, local artwork, bold lighting fixtures, eucalyptus-wood tables and walls of windows looking out to SFO and the hills beyond. The hotel prides itself on its sustainability, as its roof of solar panels make it 26 percent more energy efficient than the average hotel.
The opening of this property marks a key milestone in Hyatt’s west coast expansion plan to add 40 new hotels in California, Oregon and Washington by the end of 2021.
