S.F. Hotel Restaurants Having Rough Time

Former Mayor of San Francisco and now columnist for the Chronicle, Willie Brown, comments:

"Hotel restaurants may soon be a thing of the past here in San Francisco. I’ve had more than one manager tell me the city’s continuously rising minimum wage and union rules are making it impossible to make money anymore.

'We take in a million a year at our restaurant, but it’s costing up to $1.6 million a year to operate,' one hotel manager told me. 

The prediction is, hotels will convert their restaurants to self-serve breakfast buffets, just like the Hampton Inns out in the suburbs."
