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.

Reviews for Clift San Francisco
Cramped old, dirty and decrepit. Not what you would expect for a 'luxury' hotel. Having visited many times over the years, it's really feeling like an urgent facelift is required. The bar still has a great vibe most nights of the week, but I'd stay elsewhere and just come for the cocktails.
Staff is super cool. Like I can't say that enough. On the second time I stayed they were like welcome back, but it wasn't like that random welcome back you get, they were like "oh, it's you! :)" so yay! Decor is classy and they have a couple of cool little areas to chill at (huge chair, there's an awesome oversized lamp on the mezzanine, etc) which are perfect for taking a couple of pics or a selfie. LOL! I'd say the place is swank and classy and the folks make the visit.

We (2 adults + 2 children) stayed here for a week in March 2017. The lady at the front desk (unfortunately we forgot her name but she was great) upgraded us from a double bed room to a small suite because she didn't have a "quiet" double bed room for us. The cleanliness, level of service and quality of the food was great, the interior design is consistent (you can argue whether you like it or not but that comes down to taste). The only thing that could be improved would be the bathroom, that was a bit worn but it was fully functional. We would come back and enjoyed our stay a lot.
The cliff is very central located close to restaurants and shops. Everybody at the hotel was very nice. The room was fine, I like the speakers. The hotel in general is nice, I love the lobby. But I really think the rooms should be remodel or fixed. Looks like a hotel was pretty cool 8 years ago, but doesn't seem they haven't invest any money in keeping up with the hotel. The bathroom and the walls need to be painted and upgraded. We really like the bar, we had a few cocktails and it was fun. The hotel was clean, I will go back. There is a good pizza restaurant in front of the it called Tratto.

The people here could not have been more helpful. We only stayed one night but everyone was cheerful. We enjoyed a cocktail in their bar. The big fireplace in the lobby felt good after we came back from our dinner out. I would stay here again.
