Sleep at the Airport

New, 5 comments

Hoping to cash in on increasing passenger traffic and rising city hotel room rates, San Francisco International Airport plans to build a 400-room hotel on a small triangle of land near the off-ramp from 101 to the airport. The site used to be a Hilton Hotel until the mid-1990s, when it was razed to allow for construction of the airport's international terminal. The hotel would be one airport train stop away, giving it's location a bump on other hotels in the airport area. SFO plans to issue bonds to cover the project's estimated $160 million cost. Environmental review has started, and if all goes according to plan, the hotel will be up and running by 2017 at the latest. [SF Business Times/photo: bk2000]
