Scheduled to open in 2027, Fairmont Manchester San Diego will be situated on the North Embarcadero of the San Diego Bay, directly across from the USS Midway Museum, adjacent to the cruise ship terminal, and within walking distance of the San Diego Convention Center and the Gaslamp Quarter. The hotel is part of a development transforming San Diego’s downtown waterfront with over five acres of green space and more than 1.7 million square feet of offices, retail, restaurants, public art and entertainment.

The 36-story glass tower will have 1,160 rooms, including 69 suites and Fairmont Gold, the brand’s hotel-within-a-hotel experience offering VIP service, exclusive lounge and private reception desk. Facilities will include a luxury spa and fitness facilities, rooftop pool and over 120,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor meeting space, including two 20,000-square-foot ballrooms.

Working in collaboration with Accor’s luxury design and technical services team, Gensler will serve as both architect and interior designer for the development, melding Art Deco and Mid-Century Modern influences. The all-glass façade will be illuminated by touches of bronze. The interiors will be adorned with rich fabrics, large-scale art installations and pops of blue and bronze, framing views of the San Diego Bay and city skyline.

Fairmont Manchester San Diego joins a growing collection of properties in California, including Fairmont Grand Del Mar, also in San Diego; the recently refreshed Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles, Fairmont Miramar in Santa Monica, Claremont Club & Spa, A Fairmont Hotel in the Bay Area and the brand’s original hotel, flagship Fairmont San Francisco. Upon its opening, Fairmont Manchester San Diego will join the lifestyle loyalty program ALL - Accor Live Limitless.
