    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.

    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).

    What a swanky place...drinks are expensive but strong. More of a preppy crowd, kind of crowded in the bar room. Don't forget to sit on the gigantic chair & take a pic.

    I have stayed here twice when visiting SF and shan't stay anywhere else. Uber modern and chic and a GREAT location in the city. SCORE!

    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.

    If you are into modern, fusion hotels, then you will like the clift. The rooms are quite dramatic and dark. The bar (redwood room) use to be the place where all the cool people hang out.

    Maybe it comes down to personal design preference -- but I didn't like the style of this hotel. The rooms felt too stripped down and simplistic, and left something to be desired for what is supposed to be a luxury hotel.
