    As I was driving up 101 to SF a week or so ago, I noticed that the Clarion Hotel near SFO appeared to advertise a hotel furniture/equipment sale on their billboard. Looking at the Choice website, it appears to no longer be listed and Expedia doesn't accept reservations.

    Is the property closing for good or just for renovations?

    My hope is that Hyatt takes over the property and puts a Hyatt Place in there. :D

    Is this at the first exit south of SFO on the interstate from SF? I recall some gas stations (IIRC closest to SFO for rental returns which of course are north of SFO on the interstate) and a couple very nice looking small strip malls including a small but fancy grocery store in the neighborhood. The area I'm thinking of would be west of the interstate and within a block or two.

    it's on the eastern side of 101 (airport side), but yes, first exit. The closest hotel south of the airport.

    They also owned an independently flagged hotel in downtown Seattle, at least up until a year or so ago.

    Well, now with the Westin right now to it, this corner of the Bay Shore could turning into hotel hopping central for SPG. Three Starwood properties in walking distance from each other.

    Add downtown Minneapolis to the list; fairly upscale properties but frequently good rates are available.
