Sofitel Meeting/Room, An Eventective User from Irvine, CA

In March of 2012, my company held an important yearly meeting in the San Francisco Bay area. The previous venue we had used in San Francisco had not met our expectation, so we had to work very hard to find a suitable venue. I heard about the Sofitel Hotel through a work acquaintance and thought it would be good to learn more about this venue. The hotel seemed exceptional on its website, although there was not much information regarding the meeting rooms and amenities. I called for further information and was very pleased with what the hotel was offering. Due to the fact that I wanted to be close to the meeting facility, I booked a room at the Sofitel Hotel. Overall I was very pleased with the hotel as both a meeting facility and the hotel room itself. The benefit which I most enjoyed is that the Hotel was a very short distance from the San Francisco airport. This made it easier for our out of state business partners. Another aspect of the hotel that I was pleased with was the staff. The front desk clerk and the hotel manager were both very friendly as extremely helpful. The meeting room itself was not exceptional; however, it did serve our purpose. The room contained a printer/fax along with projector screens and a large center table. The views of the meeting room were brilliant, overlooking the bay. Although this provided a lovely view, I also found it somewhat distracting as the boats went by.


Meeting in Comfort, An Eventective User from San Francisco, CA

I had an excellent experience meeting at the Sofitel Redwood City location. I was attending a conference for my church, and thus we not only required the typical meeting space set up with rooms of chairs and tables for logistics planning, but also space for our larger worship gatherings. Sofitel was extremely accommodating and helpful in providing us with a variety of spaces, both for small group meetings, medium sized workshops and larger gatherings of all attendants. We also enjoyed using Sofitel's catering services for meals, and they were delicious and served nicely. The sleeping accommodations were stellar- it is a very nice hotel and the rooms are wonderful and comfortable. I was well taken care of while there and enjoyed returning to my room each night to a space of comfort. I also noticed that the general hotel layout is very nice- all our meeting rooms were close to each other, making it easy to get from one event to the next without wasting much time on traveling. In addition, the lobby and bar space is very nice, it has a great modern feel to it, very sophisticated, and many of us enjoyed spending evenings there after the events of the day were over. The hotel also overlooks water and it's nice to spend time outdoors in the evening, where they have firepits that they can light and you can sit by the pool and relax. It was a fabulous conference and it was made even better by the great accommodations.

ABOUT HOTALING & CO. A CRAFT BEER PIONEER SETS HIS SIGHTS ON SPIRITS The original Anchor Distilling Company was established in 1993 by Fritz Maytag, the same beverage visionary who sparked the craft beer movement with his purchase of Anchor Brewing in 1965. Maytag had rescued the struggling brewery and its iconic steam beer, and after several decades of exclusively producing beer, Maytag saw an opportunity to expand into the distillation of spirits. THE RETURN OF POT-DISTILLED WHISKEY TO THE UNITED STATES Fritz’s vision of a rye whiskey revival was fueled by the bold realization that there were no pot-distilled whiskeys being made legally in America at the time. Finding inspiration in the rye whiskeys of America’s past and the great single malt whiskies of Scotland, Fritz gathered a small team to begin top secret research and experimentation in the distillery. The first whiskey went into barrel in 1994, and the distillery soon began producing three rye whiskeys under Fritz’s guidance, all pot-distilled spirit from a mash of 100% malted rye. Over time, the range of spirits expanded into other categories, with the addition of Junípero Gin and Genevieve genever. The creation of Junípero was particularly significant, as it effectively started the movement towards high-end craft gin in the United States. AN INDEPENDENT DISTILLER TRANSFORMS INTO A PORTFOLIO OF GLOBAL CRAFT SPIRITS In 2010, Fritz Maytag retired and sold Anchor Distilling Company to a business partnership that included Tony Foglio and London's oldest wine and spirit merchant, Berry Bros. & Rudd. With the sale, Anchor Distilling Company expanded beyond production on Potrero Hill to incorporate importing a collection of super-premium craft spirits from around the world. A NEW CHAPTER AS HOTALING & CO. In 2017, Anchor Brewing Company was sold, and although Anchor Distilling Company was not part of the sale, it relinquished the rights to use the “Anchor” trademark. In early 2018, the new name of “Hotaling & Co.” was announced, a reference to one of Anchor Distilling’s most beloved small batch whiskies and to the San Francisco legend A.P. Hotaling, who came out West during the Gold Rush and quickly became one of the most reputable spirits dealers in the country. Born in 1828, Hotaling moved from New York to California in 1852, where he found his calling in San Francisco as a purveyor of fine whiskies and proceeded to build the largest liquor wholesaler in the West. In San Francisco drinks culture, Hotaling’s name became immortalized when his whiskey warehouse on Jackson Street survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire. Today, the Hotaling name remains a part of San Francisco drinking culture as the distillery celebrates 25 years of production, a proud tradition that will continue into the future alongside the other core pillars: importing and consumer education.
