Clift San Francisco in San Francisco, California

It is swank, it is seductive, and it is one of San Francisco's sexiest hotels. Clift is inspired by its own glamorous past and is infused with ultramodern touches. Designer extraordinaire Philippe Starck set out to create one of the city's most talked-about retreats, and Clift is just that. Located just off Union Square, within easy reach of tony Nob Hill, the hotel's collection of rooms is striking, featuring subtle hints of color, displays of avant-garde art, and million-dollar views of the city skyline. Below guest chambers, the soaring lobby hosts an eclectic and renowned furniture collection, including work by Salvador Dali and a 35-foot bronze fireplace by Gerard Garouste. With such dramatic grace and contemporary energy, the Clift promises a noteworthy experience at every turn.

Within Clift you will find a number of landmark lounges and public retreats. The historic Redwood Room has been recently transformed and now plays a central role as one of the city's most elegant bars. Just off the lobby, Living Room is fashioned after a traditional British club or drawing room, and invites guests to imbibe in its oversize velvet sofas and leather wing chairs. Perhaps Clift's most notable contribution to the city though is Velvet Room, the award-winning eatery that first introduced the concept of Asian-Latin cuisine. Guests graze on innovative fare served with a side of dramatic appointments - billowy silk drapes, oversize banquettes crafted from mahogany and leather, hand-blown Murano lamps imported from Italy, and illuminated tables configured into a design that promotes conversation. The sensory experience continues beyond Clift, onto the bustling streets of San Francisco that fan out in every direction. Take the cable car to Fisherman's Wharf or head towards the Embarcadero where the century-old Ferry Market Building is brimming with savory food stalls and a weekly farmers' market. Discover the style and vitality of San Francisco, beginning with your very hotel room, with a stay at Clift.

I stayed at the Clift during a business trip and I absolutely adored it. They texted me before I arrived to welcome me to the property and to ensure that I would be well taken care of. The staff was so friendly and the bed was super comfy! Not only that, but the rooms were huge! I would stay here again!

I've stayed at The Clift quite a bit over the past decade-plus, and more than half a dozen times during the past three years. In fact, I'm staying there this week. I used to look forward to it. Not so much anymore. The geographic location is great for my business. But the rooms? Really run down. How run down? Like cigarette burns in the carpets and drapes, broken window coverings, and unscrubbed bodily-fluids-dirty around the drapes over the bed. That kind of run down. The clocks fit a first-generation iPod. The orange see-through nightstands are scratched beyond aesthetic use. It's just finally time for a major remodel that's been postponed for three to five years. For the money, it's a disappointment. (How expensive? Overnight a car there, and you can roll up a 50 and a 20 together, and light them on fire, including tip. You'll feel bad about the tip though, because a lot of the staff, including the concierge, are just too cool to ever say "thank you" — for anything. ) The grey carpets are old and need to be replaced. There used to be security guards posted at the elevators at night, so you felt very safe while the iconic Redwood Room was hopping (the neighborhood is pretty dodgy at night). No more. The place has changed management a couple of times which might be part of the problem. If you stay more than a couple of nights, you'll be ordering the same thing at least twice in under a week — the variety on the menu is hardly any variety. There's no great restaurant anchoring the place. Ian Schrager did a great job with this place back in the day. But those days are really, really over.

We had the funniest experience in a while, staying here for a work trip in November. The rooms seem to have pretty good doors towards the halls, but our room had one of those old style between room doors. Our next door neighbors were having a good old time in bed. To the point of being able to clearly distinguish every noise. Every. Single. Noise. We were certain that they had a lot of energy, as this did not stop, although there were some interruptions. Perhaps for a maximum of 45 minutes between exertions. All. Through. The. Night. Yes. I used to pillow to cover my ears, but there was really no way to not hear. The final count? Somewhere between 9 and 11. We agreed that it wasn't really something you complain about, as the couple had surely invested heavily ( it was the salesforce week, so prices had been revenue managed beyond any reasonable limit), so it was more a reason for congratulations. Anyway, beyond that funny incident. The hotel was extraordinarily expensive. Crazy, freaking expensive. And on top of that, there were some strange 28 USD room charges that we did not even get asked to opt in our out of. Definitely not recommending this place.

You are in the midle of down down SF. Take advantage of the style and service offered by this first class business hotel. Rooms are small, but delicate classic and you will have the best service from front desk and other staff at this hotel. Might be you find the hotel a little snobbish and strange. You have a nearby small park to relax.

My spouse and I spent two nights at the Clift and we really enjoyed our stay. The room was really stylish, with two huge mirrors that made for a cool infinity display if you looked at it the right way. The bathroom was a little small; so much so that I couldn't apply lotion in there because my elbows kept hitting the door. Some reviewers have cautioned against the "sketchy" neighborhood -- yes, the Clift is a couple of blocks away from the Tenderloin, but if you're that scared of homeless people and/or junkies, it's not the hotel's problem, it's yours; it's the nature of living in the city. I'd totally stay at the Clift again: the bar is sexy, it's just around the corner from the Powell Street BART station, and there's some good cafes and high-street shopping just a couple of blocks away.
