The Four Seasons Hotel & Residences is a 121 m (397 ft) mixed-use development at 757 Market Street in San Francisco, California, near the Moscone Center. Completed in January 2001, the tower was the first skyscraper of the 21st century to be completed in the city.
The five-star hotel has been operated by Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts since 2001, hosts 277 guest rooms and retail stores, and houses 142 luxury condominiums on the upper floors. The Four Seasons Hotel's restaurant is decorated with artwork and the hotel also operates a 10,000 sq.ft. fitness center.
Non-linear viscous dampers located at the top of the hotel tower help dampen some of the wind sway due to powerful winds off the Pacific Ocean.
As of 2019, it was the only Four Seasons location in San Francisco, but planned to be joined by two others in 2020, one located a block away at 706 Mission Street and the other occupying the former Loews Regency San Francisco in the Financial District.
