Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco

San Francisco, USA

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.

Clearly this hotel lived up to the brand reputation. Luxury and great service from the first moment to the last. The breakfast menu is extensive and the quality of food served is amazing. I’d welcome the opportunity to stay in this hotel the next time I am in town

If a luxury hotel is in your budget, this is the place to be in San Francisco. 10 Plus rating. What makes it the best, as with most businesses, the people. The bedding is absolutely the best. It captures you delicately and does not want to release you in the morning.

I always look forward to staying at this property. The location is excellent and the hotel and restaurant are amazing. I also like being able to workout at the Equinox gym which is in the same building, and there is no charge for that privilege.

This four seasons is not up to the quality I expected (such as HK or London) . Rooms were dated with loud aircon. Bed was very comfortable and service was good. Breakfast restaurant service is poor but the food was decent

My wife and I decided to spend the weekend and the Four Seasons was the perfect hotel for it. Since the moment we arrived, the service was perfect, Filip helped us with the check in and also checked on us during our stay to ensure everything was fine. Room was clean, housekeeping did a great job! Amazing hotel and staff!
