What's Going On With Personality Hotels?
The Hotel Frank
UPDATE 3.14.10:It looks like Personality Hotels has filed for bankruptcy protection.
Usually, the only sort of bad news we ever hear about the San Francisco boutique chain of hotels, Personality Hotels, is that there's always an anti-view or two to put up with. Other than that, these hotels are known for being quirky yet reasonably priced hotels with central San Fran locations.
But sadly, there are some more serious issues surrounding Personality Hotels--the expected foreclosure of three hotels. Although the forced sales were delayed Yvonne Lembi-Detert will be able to hold onto the Hotel Metropolis, Hotel Vertigo and our fave, Hotel Frank. Unfortunately, it looks like the renovations to the Vertigo and the Frank may have taken its toll on Personality's bottom line.
While Personality is trying to find a way to keep the hotels in their portfolio, they are also looking for a way to keep the management contract if the hotels end up with new owners.
