The new 350-room, on-airport hotel at San Francisco International Airport will be a Grand Hyatt.
The four-star hotel will be located on airport grounds near the International Terminal, Boarding Area A parking deck will be connected to all terminals via the airport AirTrain system.
The expected opening date is mid-2019, according to SFO.
“The Grand Hyatt is recognized around the world for exceptional guest service, and with this approval we move one step closer in our vision to create the most innovative, luxurious, and environmentally sustainable on-airport hotel in the world,” said Airport Director John L. Martin.
SFO will construct and own the property, with the Grand Hyatt providing branding and day-to-day management of the facility.
The SFO Grand Hyatt will feature 17,500 square feet of meeting space, both full-service and casual restaurants, wine and sushi bar, health club, pool, spa and best of all: A rooftop cocktail lounge. (Can’t wait for the TravelSkills meetup there! Regrettably, due to the location of the hotel, it will likely have better views of Highway 101 than airport runways…)
Construction on the $230-million project is expected to begin in the spring of 2016.
