More Room Types

Classic San Francisco meets sleek, contemporary design at Clift, a few blocks from the hustle and bustle of Union Square and surrounded by restaurants, theaters and nightlife. The lavish hotel was designed by Philippe Starck, and the lobby displays an eclectic furniture collection including a table by Spanish surrealist artist Salvador Dali.

There is plenty to do on-property as well. The posh Redwood Room Bar is a San Francisco staple dating back to 1933 that often hosts special events. Be sure to check out the grandiose bar that was allegedly carved from one redwood tree while sipping on a custom cocktail. If working out is a priority, the gym is open 24 hours a day.

Guest rooms are sleek, yet whimsical with Starck-designed sleigh beds and lilac wooden chairs in the form of a wheelbarrow. Amenities like fluffy down duvets and Merino wool throws keep the rooms comfy.
