If you want to be near Union Square, this boutique hotel has an edge. Contemporary-chic decor, cozy rooms and a downstairs bar that's always happening during happy hour and late night makes it a great choice - and you'll usually pay less than at the big high-rise chain hotels nearby. The big downside is expensive overnight parking - don't bring a car here, if you can avoid it.Recommended for:

I have never stayed in the rooms here but I have been to the red room. It's a bar in the hotel the is a lot of fun on a weekend night. It's up scale and crowded and good place to network. The drink prices are very high so don't be shocked at the $12 beers.

My husband and I eloped in SF and had a magical time at the Clift. We were upgraded to an amazing suite and felt like a king and queen. Thank you!!! Top notch staff, cute rooms, great location with their own happening bar downstairs. You almost don't need to leave the hotel!

People love this place for some reason. I can't stand it. The place is full of cheesy out-of-towners and trying-too-hard-to-be-hip locals, the drinks are so-so, and the music is awful. Nice decor though.

Chic, hip, and modern, this hotel isn't decorated like most other places in the city. There's a ginormous chair in the lobby and there are mirrors everywhere. Between the mirrors in the hallway and in every room of your suite, it's almost like they're catering to a vain clientele. Kidding, kidding, but seriously: how do they keep all those mirrors so pristine? If there were little kids running around (and I don't think I've ever seen one here), they'd rub their hands all over the reflective surfaces. The lobby is dim, but the living rooms (and consequently the bedrooms, since there aren't doors) are bright and airy. You might find a small, purple chair or a large, orange dinner table in your room, but the eccentricity of it all somehow works well together. They don't really have parking, but there are several garages within walking distance (as in a block or two).

Its nice and trendy hotel but its a bit pricey for that you're getting. I say its a good 4-star if you don't mind the price. The Redwood room downstairs a great place to have a drink.Recommended for:

An eclectic collection of modern furnishings provide contrast with the hotel's Italian Renaissance exterior, which was originally constructed in 1913. Legend claims that the bark from a single California redwood comprises the walls of the Redwood Room, the hotel's renowned bar. The 30-foot ceilings, digital art, subdued lighting and leather and velvet furnishings attract celebrities and local trendsetters. Additional hotel amenities include a business center with high-speed Internet access for a fee. Recreational offerings include a fitness center with cardiovascular equipment.
The Clift, A Morgans Original, offers 372 guestrooms with sumptuous bedding consisting of down comforters and 400-thread count cotton linens. Custom-made white-birch furnishings complement rich velvet, leather and silk fabrics. Guestroom décor features sleigh beds and Venetian-glass lamps and desks. All accommodations include coffeemakers, minibars and laptop-compatible in-room safes. Tech-savvy enhancements include flat-panel televisions and mp3 docks.
