A Spaced-Out City Means A Tough Search for Rooms

The few event-space openings in San Francisco lately are matched only by the paucity of additions to the city's lodging options. San Francisco has seen just one new hotel this year, the waterfront Hotel Vitale. A St. Regis will opens near the Moscone Convention Center in November. As for new event space, the rebuilt De Young Museum will open in Golden Gate Park in mid-October.
