Hotel Zoe San Francisco Announces 2018 Charity Drive Benefitting UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital

Proceeds Will Primarily Benefit Music Therapy for Children

Hotel Zoe San Francisco, a luxury boutique hotel in Fisherman’s Wharf, is proud to announce a new partnership benefitting UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital for 2018.  Guests of the 221-room hotel are encouraged to give back by dropping off their room key cards in a dedicated drop box, located in the hotel lobby upon departure.For every key card that is returned, Hotel Zoe has pledged to donate $1 to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, to benefit music therapy and other important programs that bring smiles to kids in need.  Additionally, guests can make a positive impact by utilizing the ‘Hotel Zoe Gives Hope’ rate at booking, which donates five percent of all revenue booked back to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital.

“We’re proud to support the people, programs and services at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital,” said Nikki Carlson, General Manager at Hotel Zoe. “Through this campaign, Hotel Zoe guests will have the opportunity to provide essential services simply by returning their keys or booking a special rate code, making supporting this important organization as seamless as possible.”
