New Hyatt Hotel in San Francisco? Park Central San Francisco

Iíve been looking and staying in San Francisco for awhile and never once seen this property listed.

Thoughts?

Definitely very interesting, looks like most recently it was a Westin.

Iím seeing it bookable in January.

Iím wondering though why Hyatt would want another property in a city/area Saturated with Hyatt Properties already. Currently Hyatt.com is showing it under the ďHyattĒ brand which I think is definitely an interesting choice by Hyatt. Not exactly a good time to introduce it as a New Property as good levels of travel wonít return to San Francisco until at minimum 2022.

Any advantages to this over HR or GH nearby?

I'm glad to see Hyatt pull a property over from Marriott. I wonder if, the same way as the Parker New York was slotted under the Hyatt brand as a placeholder until it fully transitions to a Thompson, it's temporarily branded as a Hyatt while other plans are finalized for it? Perhaps they'll also turn it into a Thompson and increase the brand's footprint in California/North America [the only part of the world where this brand seems to live.]?

I definitely donít think it will stay a ďHyattĒ brand forever. I think it may change to Thompson, Unbound or another brand over time.

Interesting. I wouldn't call a hyatt regency downtown and a grand hyatt and a centric in the two main tourist areas "saturated." But on the Park Central, the last i knew of it, the build out was 100% Westin, i.e. plain jane standard. Newer build so fresher than the regency or the grand but as of now would classify as another option, not a better option.

Maybe I can finally get my HYATT badge that way. Thought I'd get it in Shanghai (HOTB) but it ended posting as GH and customer service wouldn't budge fixing it.

This brand is really rare, the Capital Gate Abu Dhabi also changed to Andaz iirc.

Easiest way, in the US at least, if you are ever going to Chicago and want to do a cheap stay close to ORD

Never so that option is out. If cruising ever returns I might be able to swing a Seattle stay on the front/tail end of an Alaska cruise.

During its SPG/Marriott era, this property had offered very little for its normal (relatively high) rates, not to mention ripoff "destination fees".

I had a stay there a few weeks ago, and I can't remember one thing about it other than my reservation email and billing statement.

Good luck.

Iím afraid HOTB is a Grand Hyatt. Unofficially, Hyatt doesnít operate more than one GH in a city so when HOTB was open, the ďgrandĒ name was not used, but it is still a de facto GH. The font of the logo is same as other GH.

It's a better option for many if they are attending an event at Moscone as it's just 2 blocks away. The GH is over a half mile and the HR is about a mile away. The HC is about 2 miles away, but I liked staying there and "commuting" on the cable car when in town for something at Moscone.

Well this place is notorious for its destination fees and after one stay I avoided them when they were still under Marriott Bonvoy. I don't think any other Marriott property played the show low price and screw them with fee's quite like Park Central.

The show price with all fees and taxes option on Bonvoy's site probably made their deception much harder. They were never the best value in town after you factored in all the fee's.

This property will fit right in with the GH, HC, and HR when it comes to destination fees.

From the rates Iíve seen itís priced lower than the HR and GH on average.

When searching San Francisco on Hyatt.com it shows 35 properties, which to me is Saturated.

Within the actual City (not Oakland or the outskirts like the airport or Emeryville) I am counting 9 properties.

HR SF
GH SF
Park Central SF
HC Fishermanís Wharf
Hotel Del Sol
Galleria Park Hotel
Hotel Kabuki
HP SF Downtown
The Laurel Inn
