Experience magic, elegance and enchantment at the Clift Hotel San Francisco. For almost a century, the Clift has been the epitome of old-world charm and contemporary glamour. Artisan furnishings and sculptures by Dali, Marguerite, Sawaya and Gerard Garouste grace the interior. Guests are greeted by a beautiful stone facade that opens to a bold purple lobby with towering high ceilings. The opulent Clift blends in seamlessly with the shops and eateries of nearby Nob Hill and Union Square.

Chic and very welcoming

The Clift was absolutely top shelf. First it's in a great location, a short stroll from Union Square, with easy access to the cable car, chinatown, theatres, financial district, and great shopping. if that's your thing. The staff are friendly and very helpful, right from check-in. We were given a great corner room, which was both comfortable and well-appointed. Everything worked. Note ladies, the bathroom counter space is small. The hotel is Phillipe Starck designed and it is fantastic. Check out the giant chair in reception. Concierge was brilliant, suggested what to see, where to go (and where not to), and where to eat. If you like cycling, the Clift has a deal with Blazing Saddles on Mason - we got bikes free - and for us it was a brilliant way to see the city, waterfront, Golden Gate Bridge and Sausalito. (You can bike over the Golden Gate Bridge). San Fran is cycle friendly. Have a drink in the Redwood Room at the hotel in the evening, it's an experience, in a very good way. Next trip to San Francisco, we'll be staying at the Clift again.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Bike the parks, they are beautiful. Ride the California Line on the cable car, from the waterfront to Powell, (or reverse) it's easy to get on and way less touristy. Try the Slanting Door for lunch, it's in the ferry building at the bottom of Market Street.
