About the Beacon Grand

The Beacon Grand is quintessential San Francisco, symbolizing progressive thinking while also celebrating its storied heritage. Launched during the Prohibition Era as the Sir Francis Drake, the fully-renovated hotel offers today’s travelers a new way to visit San Francisco. Its 418 rooms and thoughtful shared spaces bring modern design to life with restored architectural details. Guests are looked after by the hotel’s novel Social Hosts, who create a warm, convivial atmosphere as they facilitate stays that are personally-tailored, unique, and full of discovery. Inside, visitors and locals mix and mingle in the communal living room and lively gathering spot, Beacon Lounge and the iconic Starlite (coming early 2024).  With everything from walkable shops and restaurants to cable cars outside the front door, the central and connected Union Square location is the perfect home base for exploring San Francisco.

Established in 1928, Starlite stands as a historic and revered cocktail establishment within the heart of San Francisco. Known for its association with prominent figures such as Harry Denton, Alan Ginsberg, and Herb Caen, the venue is a frequent figure in the city's cultural narrative. Now, after decades of legacy, Starlite is poised for a resurgence, with plans to reopen its doors in January 2024. This chapter promises guests panoramic vistas of San Francisco from its vantage point on the 21st floor of Beacon Grand, a Union Square Hotel.

Underpinning this restoration is a conscientious effort to preserve the stories and experiences woven into the fabric of the establishment's history. The reinvented interiors and conceptual direction pay homage to the past, while beckoning a fresh chapter in its storied journey.

Starlite is looking for a select team to collaborate with new ownership and its esteemed partners to evolve its legacy.
