    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.

    I was on a 2 week business trip to San Francisco, and my company forgot to put me up at a hotel. So as soon as I arrived at SFO, our office manager went about looking for deals nearby the office which was in SOMA area. The office manager said she could only get a one-night at a place nearby called the "CLIFT" for tonight, and the rest of the two weeks near the airport, which I could get a rental car to get to. Said she got an incredible deal... so I thought... hmmm got lucky on getting something really cheap, nearby, so it's probably not so great... I can walk to the place. The office manager mentions she has a friend who works at the bar there, so suggested i check it out. ... so without much expectation, I arrive, and the place is awesome!!! The bar is classy, the furniture and lobby is classical but modern... beautiful... and then I get to the room... nicest SF victorian architecture I've ever lived in (even for a day) and the soap.... yeah... the soap is in this cool plastic designed box, beautiful.... I liked it so much, i asked for another one when checking out... and graciously was given one. Even though it was for one night... i'll never forget how an unplanned disastrous situation, turned out to be the best hotel stay I ever had! I await the day that I can bring my family to stay at this hotel. the beauty of the architecture, the interior uniqueness, never found in a chain hotel... the while linen... the soap!!! and the classy bar and the convenience of walking out of the hotel smack in the middle of urban union square... Nothing has beaten this yet.

    Famous for its Redwood room, the Clift Hotel also has hotel rooms! The decor in the hotel rooms is modern & clean and no-fuss. It will be hosting free summer music nights in the hotel bar, and for this I am more excited to go. In addition to the warm redwood walls, I love the new media portraits hanging on the walls. So Harry Potter.

    One of the best bars in SF. Great ambience, interesting people and tasty cocktails. Bring something to read and order a Shirley Temple on a weekday afternoon.

    This hotel has a dark, maple feel that is sophisticated and beautifully classy. Out of the big high-end hotels (Mark Hopkins, The Fairmont, etc.) I found that this was most worth the $$ if you want to splurge. The rooms have top of the line amenities and the beds are the most comfortable ones I've slept in, even if you stay in the most standard room.

    Also -- the bar and restaurant are out of this world. The Redwood Room is the bar, complete with old fashioned paintings on the wall whose eyes move around the room. Really cool even if you just go for the experience! And Asia de Cuba, the restaurant, has amazing dishes like Grilled Butterfish (amazing!) with 1st class service.
