The Hotel Council of San Francisco was established in 1987 as a non-profit organization to represent all segments of the lodging industry. San Francisco is home to a booming tourism sector, of which the hospitality industry is a proud and vital part. We are the voice of the Bay Area’s hotels. The membership roster includes over eighty San Francisco hotels of all sizes, in addition to more than forty Allied Members, who are the major suppliers to these properties.
The Hotel Council is governed by a Board of Directors, which is comprised of representatives from all areas of the lodging industry. We represent the interests of our member hotels on a variety of government and public affairs issues. The Council believes strongly in the importance of educating the public and increasing awareness about the hospitality industry. We are proud to be part of a thriving tourism industry.
The Hotel Council is committed to involving its members in community initiatives and philanthropic efforts. We hold numerous events throughout the year for our members to engage with one another and to network with key civic leaders. In addition, we organize philanthropic events that support scholarships for hospitality management students attending Bay Area colleges and universities. We are proud to work with the San Francisco Hotel/Non-Profit Collaborative which transfers excess goods, supplies, food and equipment from hotels to community based non-profit organizations. We also plan to bring our members together to participate in city-wide events such as the AIDS Walk and the Italian Heritage Parade.
The Hotel Council continues to be a key player in San Francisco’s tourism, political and business sectors. We understand that our hotels have a great deal to contribute to San Francisco’s economy and that we must be united to deliver our positive message to the City and County of San Francisco.
