More Room Types

Set in vibrant Lower Nob Hill, Hotel Carlton has a penchant for making waves. Built in 1927, the property was once a speakeasy (two brass-lidded evacuation pipes in the lobby were used for throwing away alcohol during police raids). In its present incarnation, the Carlton is a pioneer in the hotel industry’s green movement and was the first US hotel to receive an LEED gold rating.

The Carlton hosts a nightly complimentary wine reception (5:30-6pm) in the lobby, which is elaborately decorated in Indian rugs, velvet sofas and an embellished fireplace. Rooms are just as striking with Moroccan bedside tables, colorful bedspreads and exotic trinkets; it feels like "the kind of apartment that would belong to a globe-trotting bohemian aunt" (Fodor’s). Opt for a pricier room on one of the higher floors for city views and a quieter night's sleep. The on-site restaurant Saha serves tasty Middle Eastern fusion cuisine that dining review website Zagat ranks as “very good to excellent”. Try the salmon baklava, beef kibbeh and the tagines cooked with truffle oil.

On the gritty Tenderloin border, the neighborhood surrounding the hotel isn’t the city’s best, but it’s still within walking distance to Union Square, the California Street cable car and the restaurants along buzzing Polk street.

From the press:
  • "If you're looking for wonderfully cheap, attractive, and clean accommodations and don't mind being in the gritty center of the city, book a room here" -- Frommer’s
  • "The restaurant Saha ('to your health') serves excellent Arabic fusion cuisine for breakfast and dinner" -- Fodor’s
