RIU Takes Its Urban Line to San Francisco

RIU Hotels & Resorts has added a new hotel to the Riu Plaza brand in the United States through the acquisition of an establishment in San Francisco.

Riu Plaza Fisherman’s Wharf is located just a short stroll from the famous Pier 39, North beach and China Town.

“This project is great news for RIU and for the consolidation of our line of Riu Plaza urban hotels. San Francisco is a great city with a very competitive hotel market and this acquisition places us in one of the best neighbourhoods with a quality product that fits perfectly with our business strategy. Our objective is to attract mainly European and Latin American holiday makers, who until now have found it hard to visit the city due to the lack of availability,” said Luis Riu, CEO of RIU Hotels & Resorts.

The new Riu Plaza Fisherman’s Wharf has 531 rooms, a bar and restaurant, 11 meeting rooms and an executive room with exclusive services for business guests.
