The highly anticipated Grand Hyatt at SFO, a $237 million luxury property and the only on-site hotel at San Francisco International Airport, is now open. The 351-room property covers 4.2 acres on airport grounds and offers 14,435 square feet of meeting and event space.
The new Grand Hyatt also provides two restaurants on site, Quail & Crane and Twin Crafts Market & Bar. The former, the hotel's 108-seat signature eatery, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in a communal dining setting with an open kitchen. The menu relies heavily on local Northern California ingredients, prepared with strong Asian influences.

Twin Crafts, meanwhile, is a multifunctional lounge that includes a 24/7 grab-and-go market and a cocktail bar that's open from 10 a.m. until midnight. Gastropub delicacies such as burgers, oysters and salads are served at the bar.

The meetings and event space is spread out among 18 unique, flight-themed venues, including a 5,760-square-foot Grand Ballroom.  

The stylish hotel is also home to an exclusive art collection curated by the San Francisco Arts Commission. The public program kicks off with 16 works, all inspired by local nature and Bay Area-flavored creativity, including sculpture, mosaic, painting and photography.

The property is directly connected to all SFO terminals, via a new, dedicated AirTrain station. "With the opening of Grand Hyatt at SFO, we offer travelers a new benchmark in airport hospitality," said airport director Ivar C. Satero. "The new hotel reflects our commitment to deliver a world-class experience for our guests, with seamless access via our AirTrain system, sustainable building design, thoughtful service and amenities, and inspiring works of public art."

Grand Hyatt at SFO is a high-profile step towards Hyatt's plan to add 40 new hotels in California, Oregon and Washington by the end of 2021.
