Clift

Union Square, San Francisco

The hotel

This cutting edge luxury hotel in San Francisco is a stunning juxtaposition of the Italian Renaissance-style exterior, and modern Philippe Starck interior. The décor will have you swooning, as will the city views from the generously proportioned rooms, all of which feature luxury silks, leather, velvet and marble Starck bathrooms. The Velvet Room restaurant uses only the best locally grown, organic, seasonal produce to fill the menu with fabulous dishes. There’s a gym in which to work off your excesses and the legendary Redwood Room bar is where San Francisco’s A-listers come to see and be seen.

The Deluxe King room we were in was very small, and the bathroom was not vented well. It was very clean, though. The staff is very courteous and helpful.… Read more
Be prepared for a very old hotel. Not just in age, but in all amenities. If you want to relive the 60's, you will enjoy it. It is not very tech friendly. Mainly not enough convenient outlets. The Deluxe King room we were in was very small, and the bathroom was not vented well. It was very clean, though. The staff is very courteous and helpful. Make sure to ask about the amenities available, because we were not informed or invited to enjoy them. Nor did they disclose at booking that the hotel is under renovations and construction starts at 8 A.M. Read less

Love this hotel. Great staff, awesome bar, value price for the size of the suites, and makes you feel like home. Great photo ops in the lobby with the huge chair! Just be careful climbing up! Great drinks and the food is very good.
