Drake’s name dropped from San Francisco hotel

The Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco is losing the name it bore for 94 years in one of several California efforts to cease memorializing the famed explorer in light of his involvement in slave trading. The 416-room hotel, bought by Northview Hotel Group last year for about $157 million, is scheduled to reopen this spring as The Beacon Grand after being closed since the onset of the pandemic.
