“Parc Your Heart in San Francisco”
As Tony Bennett famously sings in San Francisco’s official ballad “I Left My Heart in San Francisco, millions of tourists every year leave their heart here. Now, with business demands and meetings again on the rise, the Parc 55 – A Hilton Hotel – is asking visitors to “Parc Their Hearts” in San Francisco, in the very heart of the City, Union Square.
Throughout its closure, the property has displayed a larger-than-life heart on the hotel, which will continue to be lit until the hotel opens its doors. The heart was lit as a symbol of hope during the pandemic and mirrors the many artists’ hearts across San Francisco. While the illuminated heart will disappear as guests fill the rooms, the spirit of the heart lives on in the exceptional service offered to those who stay at Parc 55, A Hilton Hotel. Along with its “big sister” property next door, Hilton San Francisco Union Square, Parc 55, A Hilton Hotel, comprises a complex that houses the largest self contained hotel event space in San Francisco.
