The hospitality brand, which is part of Accor, has signed an agreement with Manchester Financial Group to develop and manage a Fairmont hotel in downtown San Diego.
The Fairmont Manchester San Diego is scheduled to open in 2027, and it will be situated on the North Embarcadero of the San Diego Bay, directly across from the USS Midway Aircraft Museum. The hotel is part of a landmark development transforming San Diego’s downtown waterfront with more than five acres of green space and more than 1.7 million square feet of offices, retail, restaurants, public art and entertainment.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work again with our partners at Manchester Financial Group to bring another landmark property to life,” Fairmont Hotels & Resorts CEO Mark Willis said in a statement. “Opening as our largest-to-date Fairmont in the U.S., this project represents an incredible opportunity to bring the signature luxury experience for which Fairmont is known around the globe, on an unprecedented scale and magnitude to downtown San Diego.”
The 36-story glass tower will have 1,160 rooms, including 69 suites and Fairmont Gold, the brand’s hotel-within-a-hotel experience with an exclusive lounge and private reception desk. Amenities will include a spa and fitness facilities, a rooftop pool and more than 120,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space, including two 20,000 square-foot ballrooms. The hotel will have six dining venues, including a 160-seat signature restaurant, coastal Baja cuisine, noodle shop, rooftop poolside grill, café and lobby bar.
