SAN FRANCISCO, December 1, 2016 – JLL today announced the firm has arranged the sale of the Sheraton Fisherman’s Wharf, located in San Francisco.

The hotel is located in San Francisco’s most-visited destination and is within walking distance from Jefferson Street, Piers 39 and 41, Ghirardelli Square, North Beach and the Taylor & Bay Street cable car turnaround.

“The hotel has been well-maintained by ownership and is located in the heart of a high-profile, gateway market,” said John Strauss, Managing Director of JLL’s Hotels & Hospitality Group, who led the transaction. “As an iconic tourist destination, Fisherman’s Wharf is one of the best-performing hotel sub-markets in the United States.”

“Due to limited new supply and strong demand fundamentals, hotel investors remain very bullish on San Francisco’s future,” added Strauss. “The city will remain a top investment target for domestic and international buyers in the foreseeable future.”

JLL’s Hotels & Hospitality Group has completed more transactions than any other hotels and hospitality real estate advisor over the last five years, totalling more than $68 billion worldwide. Between negotiating property deals, the group’s 350-person global team also closed more than 4,400 advisory, valuation and asset management assignments.
