This wonderful hotel is truly a warm and welcoming oasis in the hectic city. The moment you enter you feel at peace and embraced by its warm lobby fire and fantastic staff. The atmosphere is chic and eclectic is only the best way!! The rooms are upscale and lush without being over the top. The bar and restaurant are so...

The staff and hotel are just perfect. We experienced 10 star service from Andressa at the front desk, went above and beyond to make sure that my wife's birthday stay was simply magic. All we had to do was ask and things were handled so fast and utmost professional level. We can't wait to come back again and again. Love...

Chic interior in the lobby and funky atmosphere but the room is plain. Staff were courteous except for the man who evidently wasn't pleased with the taxi who picked me up or that he had to put the bags in the trunk by himself. Not sure what that was all about, sir. Little nasty looks like that matter.

Just an over priced hotel with un-clean old rooms, re-painted bathtubs and no care for clients. And an $28 fee for Wifi and "free" thee and coffee in the morning. What a theft on top of the over priced rooms.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Clift. Our room was great - a corner room so double aspect with two large windows and fantastic city views as on the eleventh floor. We were offered an upgrade (at $40 per night) on the deluxe king we had booked, but when we asked to see both rooms before deciding, it was...

We go to San Francisco a lot. This is the first time I have stayed at the Clift Hotel. Overall I would say it was the worst. The location is great, the staff was great, and the common areas were great. The Rooms need to be updated, the bathroom are micro small, and the beds were like sleeping on a...

Friendly and efficient staff!! We met with just about everyone: front desk, concierge, restaurant, room service, housekeeping, and maintenance. The hotel lobby and lounge immediately gives off a cozy/lodge feeling. Quiet with an interesting vibe. There was a scavenger hunt for the hotel that my 8 year old loved! The staff made her feel special and treated her as a...

My hotel stay was very pleasant. The staff was very welcoming and extremely helpful. The hotel location is great, close to good shopping and great walking area. The Redwood room is very beautiful and we enjoyed having drinks and appetizers before dinner. The only thing I would change is the lighting in the lobby and downstairs hallway. I had a...
