Westin St. Francis Rehabiliation & Clock Bar

San Francisco, California

Built in 1904, The Westin St. Francis Hotel is listed by the city of San Francisco as a building of the highest historical importance. As the first hotel to be reconstructed after the 1906 earthquake, the St. Francis is one of the best examples of the Beaux-Arts style.

Hornberger + Worstell’s rehabilitation and multi-phase renovation project included developing schemes for approximately 25,000 square feet of renovated and new meeting space, pre-function and support spaces, accessible rooftop terraces, and the renovation of the porte cochere. Hornberger + Worstell’s project was an important opportunity to maintain the original character of a prominent building while giving new economic life. Phase I, now complete, included the conversion of a 1300 square foot retail space into the Clock Bar, the hotel’s first dedicated bar since the 1950s.
