 Magna Hospitality Group, L.C. Completes $2.5 million Refurbishment of the Historic Cartwright Hotel,
San Francisco


SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 5, 2004 - The historic Cartwright Hotel, a 91-year-old landmark located near San Francisco's world famous Union Square, will celebrate a recently completed $2.5 million refurbishment with a private grand unveiling celebration for the city's business community on Oct. 21st.
A property-wide restoration began soon after Rhode Island-based Magna Hospitality Group, L.C. purchased the hotel from the Kimpton Group in October 2003.  Highlights include a complete makeover of guest rooms, meeting rooms and lobby; restoration of existing antique furniture and the addition of matching reproduction pieces; installation of complimentary wireless high-speed Internet access in every room; and new amenities, including the city's only complimentary deluxe continental breakfast with make-your-own waffles, coffee and fresh juices.

"Magna will roll out the red carpet during a private tour, luncheon and evening reception for businesses and organizations such as Chambers of Commerce in the San Francisco area. 

The Cartwright, which was built in 1913, will be re-introduced as a fully restored boutique and small meetings hotel catering to leisure and business travelers, government leaders, business executives, and social groups. A new staff, including hotel General Manager Fred Rapp and Director of Sales and Marketing Ron Davis, will be introduced during the day-long celebration.
