Clift

Union Square, San Francisco

The hotel

After a big renovation at the end of 2019, you’ll get to check out a brand new Union Square hotel. The Clift Royal Sonesta is a stunning meeting of the glamourous Italian Renaissance-style and the beautiful modern design, reflective of this cutting edge city. The legendary Redwood Room, always a San Francisco favourite, has been refreshed while preserving its iconic history, and there's a new bistro to check out. Even the bees are busy producing honey on the rooftop, ready to add to your drinks and salads.

Nice hotel comfortable room. The fitness center is open 24/7. Park in the other street half the price. The bellman Albert was the nicest, knew so much about the city and gave incredible tips with much patience! Make sure to meet him

I stayed here for my birthday a few weeks back and it was a fabulous experience. The new renovation at the Clift was beautifully done. The room was incredible: light, modern, bright and very spacious. The hotel staff was helpful, and very accommodating. Highly recommend the breakfast at Frederick's. I wanted to thank Gino personally! He generously upgraded me for my birthday and made the celebration extra special. Safe to say I will be returning to enjoy The Clift soon. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Read less

Wonderful room, great service, highly attentive staff, good price. And so CLEAN and FRESH. We will definitely be using this hotel every time we are in SF. Honestly, this couldn't have been a more perfect stay. Really nice bar in the lobby as well.

We had a very pleasant experience at the Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel in SF. The location was convenient and the hotel was nicely decorated, fresh and clean. We were very impressed with the bellmen, Albert and Todd and their willingness to help us with our request and recommendations.

Great place to stay, with the best staff, from the people at the front desk to Steve, who has to take the title for the most gracious, informative and helpful concierge in the city. And breakfast in the restaurant downstairs restaurant was the best
