SAN FRANCISCO, June 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Grand Hyatt San Francisco and The Westin St. Francis announce a new partnership, Union Square Alliance. This exciting collaboration pairs two of San Francisco's largest hotels to provide guest rooms and meeting space for groups looking for an iconic and convenient San Francisco convention experience.
Grand Hyatt San Francisco and The Westin St. Francis both border San Francisco's famed Union Square, and boast incredible views from their 36th Floor and 32nd Floor premiere meeting rooms, respectively. While both properties have high demand for business and leisure travelers, the unique needs of small and medium groups led them to join forces to create a program for mid-sized conventions that are looking for a landmark San Francisco meeting location.
"Grand Hyatt and The Westin St. Francis are two of San Francisco's most historic properties. We offer a combined 86,000 square feet of meeting space, 1,000 weekday guest rooms and 1,250 weekend guest rooms. Additionally, our proximity to Union Square allows companies to host events in Union Square's incredible plaza, which can accommodate up to 1,000 people for a private, tented event, and have guests stay just steps away," remarked Judy Cronkhite, director of sales and marketing for Grand Hyatt San Francisco.
"We have joined forces because we see a growing need in San Francisco for mid-sized meetings that want to be close to the mid-Market tech hub, and also desire meeting space that shows off the spectacular views that both The Westin St. Francis and Grand Hyatt offer from our 32nd and 36th floors," said Elaine Clancy, director of sales and marketing for The Westin St. Francis.
The Union Square Alliance will allow meeting planners greater flexibility by being able to spread meeting space and guest rooms across the two properties, while remaining nearby. The two properties are just one block apart and both border Union Square. Group rates are available.
