    Hotel del Coronado

    Hotel del Coronado

    Class:
    94 reviews
    Very Good! - 80% of guests recommend

    Wow! This hotel is absolutely stunning. It costs and arm and a leg to stay as a guest, but even if you aren't, it's worth it to go inside and explore the history. We walked in from the beach by one of the restaurants. Just inside, beyond the restaurants is a set of bathrooms. Off in one of the small ...

    Class:

    SF's Grande Dame #1! Such history - 1906 & Caruso, Woodrow Wilson, Warren Harding, even Khruschev. Even though the structure is a total replacement for the original destroyed in 1906, it retains the elegance of the Gilded Age. Attended many events and conferences here. Good service for same. Garden Court is breathtakingly beautiful. Yet to try High Tea or the ...

    The Fairmont San Francisco

    The Fairmont San Francisco

    Class:
    71 reviews
    Excellent! - 85% of guests recommend

    The Fairmont is a lovely historical hotel in San Francisco. As with many hotels in San Francisco, it is an older building, so expect some wear and tear typical of older hotels. However, they do a decent job of maintaining the building.

    Very Good! - 81% of guests recommend

    Classic old style Beverly Hills look on the exterior, but very modern and well appointed on the inside. Convenient location heading right into Beverly Hills. Also convenient for access to Century City and West Hollywood. Service was fantastic. Check in/out seamless. Dont like the $38 overnight parking fee, but I guess that is basic standard across the area there. Would ...

    The Westin St. Francis

    The Westin St. Francis

    Class:
    54 reviews
    Good! - 79% of guests recommend

    Westin St. Francis may have the best hotel location in all of San Francisco. Directly facing Union Square, it’s front side forms one of the four wall of buildings enclosing the park. During Christmas, it’s even more beautiful as the building is illuminated in a dramatic fashion such that it serves as a wonderful backdrop for photos of the Union ...

    Chateau Marmont

    Chateau Marmont

    21 reviews

    The Chateau Marmont is like an oasis in the heart of the city, except for the fact that it's no secret. Definitely an attraction for tourists and celebs alike, the hotel is always busy. But how can you blame them? The grounds are beautiful, the pool area a mini retreat, and unique individual bungalows that are more like retro condos. ...

    Very Good! - 83% of guests recommend

    Rustic luxury. Built in 1927 it came in at about a million dollars over-budget. The service is good, meals are good and Internet access is excruciatingly slow. Visit the hotel for its design, history and location.

    Class:
    4 reviews
    Very Good! - 81% of guests recommend

    Hayes Valley Inn is what one might expect from a “boutique hotel.” Situated in Hayes Valley, the hotel is really close to amazing restaurants, three of which are next door (Dobb’s Ferry), at the corner (Chez Maman) and across the street (Absinthe). Then there are all the artsy shops and eateries down Hayes Street to the west. Take the 21 ...

    Good! - 79% of guests recommend

    Hotel Vertigo is one of my favorite hotels in San Francisco. That’s a fact. Just thinking about its cinematic history and the beautiful decor inside just gives me chills. One of the greatest filmmakers of all time, Alfred Hitchcock, filmed parts of the film of the same name here. Look down the stairway from the top floor and you’ll get ...

    Very Good! - 84% of guests recommend

    An amazingly beautiful hotel with a rich history. It is right in the Gaslamp quarter and has been since the late 1800's. Some even say it haunted! There are tours onsite because it's a historical monument. The Palace bar and hotel and phenomenal, such classy decor! They have valet service and sometimes have a piano player in the romantic bar ...

    Nob Hill Hotel is a beautiful and classic historical building located close to Union Square and within walking distance to the Polk Street Corridor. The decor is antique/ vintage so not all the rooms are the same, but it they all have a little bit of classic beauty of the Victorian era. Not a lot of people can say they've ...

    Class:

    When I need a hotel in LA, I can't go past the Roosevelt. Such an amazing place, steeped in history. It was the venue for the first ever Oscars. I party quite a bit in the rooms and it's incredibly hard to be booted out. That being said, I was banned for two years but we all seem to be ...

    Dating from 1912, the Beverly Hills Hotel and its ostentatious, pink exterior is known as a place where celebrities meet and stay. The hotel includes the famed Polo Lounge. The hotel's attendants are friendly and helpful, even to non-guests. Marilyn Monroe lived here at various times.

    Claremont Resort Hotel & Spa

    Class:

    My grandparents used to take me to hotels like the Claremont when I was a kid. As an adult, I appreciate them even more because of this association. I love the history, the tradition, the ability to just relax. So after my house caught on fire and my insurance company was going to cover a hotel, I figured why not ...

    The adventure of staying on a docked (and supposedly haunted) ship was pretty fun and exciting. Had a great time in the bar, at the restaurant, and there is even a Starbucks on board for those who need a pick me up in the morning and cannot wait to get back around to the downtown Long Beach Harbor side. This ...

    Park Plaza Hotel

    GORGEOUS venue built in the early 1900s. Came here for a Madmen themed party hosted by ALO and I had so much fun exploring the venue. Maybe because the building is so old it has a touch of errie-ness to it. The ceilings are SO high and you will see the fancy grand staircase when you enter the big entrance. ...

    Excellent! - 92% of guests recommend

    This place really is magic! It’s a few blocks off the tourist strip and has a feel of old Hollywood history. I loved the quiet rooms, which I think are old converted apartments--they feel Hollywood Hills glamorous with their own personality and mod décor, lofty beds, and big windows overlooking the pool. The kitchenettes are convenient. The best part of ...

    This spot was clean and pretty with nice views of the city. The rooms were a tiny bit small, but sparkled with an elegant sense of class. By far the best parts were the excellent beds with big plush bedding and the fun hall lights depicting scenes from this historic hotel's past.

    The historic Hotel De Anza opened its doors to the public during the heart of the Great Depression in 1931. This was an early "first class" Hotel for the future Capital of Silicon Valley. The original 10-story building was constructed in just one year and at a cost of ~$500,000. That's 1/20th of the the 1990s restoration cost. The Hotel ...
