With ties to the San Francisco area, Fenwick’s focus is on bringing a fresh perspective to the city’s hospitality scene while remaining plugged in to offer guests a rewarding experience. 

“I am thrilled to be a part of the LUMA Hotel team and introduce a new narrative on hospitality to the San Francisco hotel scene,” said Fenwick in a statement announcing the appointment. “Now more than ever we have the opportunity to shine a light on an area that has been named the new heart of the city, and I look forward to being a part of the storytelling journey for this beloved destination.”
