Virgin releases details on new San Francisco hotel

It will come with a rooftop bar and dining options

In June, Curbed SF reported that mega-brand Virgin would open a hotel in San Francisco’s South of Market, near the upcoming Central Subway station at Fourth and Folsom. Today the mega-brand revealed new details about the hotel.

A few highlights will include:

  • 196 suites and master suites
  • Several dining and cocktail bars, including the brand’s flagship, The Commons Club
  • A coffee shop
  • A rooftop bar.

It will be interesting to see if a rooftop bar will be popular in the chilly and windy area along Fourth Street, but anything is possible.

Virgin opened its first U.S. hotel in Chicago in 2015. The company’s San Francisco property is expected to open the summer of 2017.

The London-based company is one of several noted world-famous hotel brands coming the the city. Most notably, the iconic hotel Waldorf Astoria will build its first-ever San Francisco property (designed by Foster + Partners in partnership with San Francisco-based Heller Manus Architects), right in the heart of the impending Transbay Center.
