I just got an email today from the city of San Francisco Planning Department that includes some information about the fate of the Tonga Room. I was on an email notification list because I wrote an email to plead for saving the Tonga Room.
There's pages and pages of information on the whole project but if you sift through the table of contents, it mentions that they rejected the plan to protect the Tonga Room and keep it where it is, but it sounds like they are going to relocate it somewhere else in the building, like under the new Ballroom. It's sort of hard to tell, because there are codes and numbers telling you where the information is on the Tonga but I don't understand it. The sense I get is that they are going to relocate the Tonga somewhere else in the hotel.
