Yotel is Bringing Its Chic Capsule Cabins to San Francisco
The historic Grant Building at Market and Seventh streets in San Francisco, will turn into a 200-room Yotel after undergoing some extreme renovations. No word on the pricing but with such small rooms, one has to expect some small, er, low, rates.
Capsule rooms aside, the news of a Yotel is excellent for San Fran. The city might be home to some of the world's top tech firms (Twitter, Google, etc.), but its hotel scene has been lacking as of late, especially when you compare it to other big cities like New York, Miami and Chicago, which are readying not just new and hip hotel brands (Ace, Virgin, Edition) but also stylish reincarnations of established brands like Hyatt, Hilton and Marriott.
Hopefully, the arrival of a Yotel will spur some other cool hotel brands to come in. Already, the mid-Market area is making way for a Hampton Inn and another 250-room hotel. Fingers crossed a Hotel Indigo or an Andaz Hotel is coming up next.
