San Francisco Hotels To Open Mid September

“Today’s announcement by Mayor Breed is life-saving good news for the employees of San Francisco’s hotel community”

1 September 2020 — San Francisco, CA: San Francisco’s hospitality community and tens of thousands of currently un-employed hotel workers – and hundreds of thousands of others supported by those jobs — had reason for optimism today following Mayor London N. Breed’s press conference announcing a date for the reopening of San Francisco’s tourism economy.

“Today’s announcement by Mayor Breed is life-saving good news for the employees of San Francisco’s hotel community,” said Kevin Carroll, Hotel Council President and CEO. “Never have our hotels been safer, cleaner or more prepared to welcome guests. Our enhanced safety protocols are above and beyond what is required. San Francisco being able to welcome back guests is an important sign that our recovery, carefully and with all prescribed precautions, is underway. As other communities and cities throughout California have shown, when hotels re-open, tourism and economic renewal follow.”

Although there are many specifics yet to be confirmed, today’s announcement was the first tentative stop forward to restore San Francisco’s number one economic engine: tourism. Since March when COVID first hit, the San Francisco Hotel Council has been actively engaged in planning for the reopening of hotels, shuttered to tourists for over five months, leading to devastating hardship for frontline hotel workers.

“No one is more committed to the health and safety of employees than our hotels,” said Carroll. “Our enhanced cleaning protocols that we announced last month are a testament to our commitment to everyone’s safety, worker and guests alike. “
