Woodridge Capital Partners Acquires San Francisco’s 393-room Stanford Court Hotel
December 8, 2014 7:03am
With a combined 1,367 rooms, the Stanford Court, Mark Hopkins and Fairmont Hotels sit at one of the most prestigious locations in San Francisco with spectacular views of the city and Bay and within walking distance of the Financial District, Union Square and the South of Market tech hub. It is the only spot in San Francisco where the three cable car lines meet.
Michael Rosenfeld, CEO of Los Angeles-based Woodridge Capital Partners, commented, “We are honored to have the opportunity to continue to invest in San Francisco with its rich history. This is the perfect assemblage of three of the world’s finest hotels in an incomparable location. We continue to see San Francisco as an incredibly strong luxury hotel market with tremendous appeal for business travelers, conventions and leisure visitors.”
Perched atop Nob Hill at the corner of California Street and Powell Street, The Stanford Court Hotel features 393 luxury rooms including 31 suites with many rooms offering stunning city and water views at one of the most recognizable addresses in San Francisco. The hotel is operated by Highgate Holdings that will continue to provide management.
The Stanford Court Hotel is located on the site of railroad magnate Leland Stanford’s palatial mansion that burned in the fire following the 1906 earthquake. A colorful and significant figure in California history, Stanford moved to California in 1856 to capitalize on the Gold Rush as a merchant. He was a founder and president of the Central Pacific Railroad and later the Southern Pacific. He contributed what would be $1 billion today to found Stanford University in honor of his son who had died of typhoid. He also made important contributions as California governor for two years and then senator for eight years.
A $33 million renovation at the Stanford Court Hotel was completed in 2008 to update the rooms and common areas. Woodridge plans further renovations to the guest rooms and public spaces in the near future.
