Glittering
Monument
Returns

AS THE BEACON GRAND

It opened in a city echoing with the epic World’s Fairs of its day. They called it “a glittering monument to the progress, hospitality, and undying beauty of San Francisco.” Now, the hotel once known as Sir Francis Drake shines for all history makers.

Stay

at the
Heart of
The City

Union Square will always be the living room of San Francisco. Here, you are in the center of it all, with cable cars outside your front door and Social Hosts to show you the way. The eclectic neighborhoods, sights, tastes, and stories fill The City’s map around you.

Together, here, history is forever starting now.
