The full accounting of what it cost the city of San Francisco to provide emergency shelter in the form of hotel rooms to homeless individuals during the height of the pandemic is still likely many months away. But now there’s the question of what actual damage was done inside these hotels, and how much the city should pony up for it.
The assessments of actual damage inside hotels like the Hotel Union Square and the Tilden Hotel, which have filed millions of dollars in damage claims following the end of their use as shelter-in-place (SIP) hotels, is still somewhat opaque. But the Chronicle reports that while there may be damage suits pending from four hotels and counting, a city agency has already recommended a payout north of $5 million to settle just one of them.
We learned in May that multiple hotel owners were coming after the city for damages caused by individuals who lived in their rooms for months between 2020 and 2021 — and this was hardly surprising.
As Supervisor Aaron Peskin puts it in an (under)statement to the Chronicle, “When we rapidly housed 3700 people, we were aware that some of them would be tough customers.”
