San Francisco is home to many single- room residency hotels, which provide housing for the members of the low income community. The City of San Francisco has designated many of them to be 100% residential while some are allowed to rent a small percentage of rooms for short term stays (defined as up to 32 days). The Hotel Conversion Ordinance of 1980 prevents S.R.O. hotels from converting residential hotels to tourist hotels, thereby maintaining a stable housing environment for low income residents. C.C.S.R.O.C. has been involved in holding accountable Hotel Columbia (411 O’Farrell St.) owners and operators who are violating the Hotel Conversation Ordinance. From roughly 2010 to 2012 years, a systematic renovation took place at Columbia Hotel, which was renamed “Orange Village Hostel” in order to target tourists and international students. Many of the students are housed in rooms with illegal bunk beds. C.C.S.R.O. tenant organizers and allies held a protest and rally in front of the hotel in December 2012.
