The hotel

Grown up but young at heart, San Francisco’s post of the Four Seasons collection embraces all ages. The young get a gift from the toy wagon and milk and cookies on arrival, along with treats like a DVD library, summer playroom, and scavenger hunt. While grown up guests get complimentary WiFi and their own Equinox Sports Club, with a gym, spa, sauna, and luxurious lap pool. Of course everyone gets to enjoy its SoMa location, two blocks from Union Square and Westfield, and seconds from MoMa and Yerba Buena Gardens (in fact it’s so close many guestrooms get garden views through their floor-to-ceiling windows). The wall of windows at MKT Restaurant gives views of its namesake Market Street – but inside’s just as eye-catching, with hints of Market Street’s newspaper printing heritage in its brass, oak, and leather infused décor.

Service is great, as expected with all the four seasons hotel. Rooms are clean, nice location, and complimentary access to the equinox gym.

The room bathroom was large and luxurious, particularly the bedding, as was the bathroom. attended a meeting there and the food was excellent. Staff was attentive and personal. Loved that it was associated with Equinox for its gym facilities. Only wish they had a place to buy a "real sized" diet coke!

The hotel is newly remodeled and is gorgeous. I am in love with the pillows and bedding. The views of SF are spectacular. Everyone made us feel so at home. I can see how people would want to buy a place and live there year round! The rooms are so quiet.
