Staff was great ... bar was so-so. Rooms were very comfortable. Edges on a sketchy area of the city - but is safe all together. Stayed for a full week - was near everything that I needed. This might become my San Fran hotel.
"All style, less substance."
I stayed at The Clift for 10 days while in SF for business. The hotel is very hip and the location is great. The bar is beautiful and good staff. Although beyond the lobby and the bar I found it quite disappointing and excessively overpriced. I'm sure the rooms were top notch at one point but haven't been very well maintained - bathroom fixtures are all tarnished, the drain was bocked in the bathtub/ shower, the bathtub itself was peeling and to another reviewers point, there was no shower gel which I too found strange. The paint on the walls was chipped and no coffee or tea facilities in the room. Ive never stayed in hotel that didn't offer these as a basic. When I asked about it, I was told that i could get coffee in the lobby. I asked twice at reception for a few more hangers as had 10 days of clothes, each time they told me that house keeping would drop them off in my room but it never happened. The breakfast is pretty basic, mainly continental with scrambled eggs and bacon...it cost $32. There's also a breakfast menu but seeing oatmeal for $9 i thought it was beyond overpriced. I expect that food in a hotel is going to be more expensive but also expect that it's of a higher standard to justify the price. I will be expensing my trip but had I been staying at my own expense I'd be severely disappointed with value for money and the services in the room.
"Amazing Hotel. Beautiful Rooms."
Its such a great hotel. Its a must stay for SF for me. Love this place! The Rooms - perfect The Bar - a winner. very busy on a thur, fri, sat. The Food - all good. The Staff - over and above. great pre service and whilst there.
"Always a pleasure to stay here"
Just catching up with some reviews .... And I am surprised to see the Clift not in the top 10 of San Francisco. Location is perfect; few step walks from Union Square. I am a global card holder for the Morgan hotels, so usually I am getting an upgrade for the room. Few years back they put me in what is probably the biggest suite they have ... Amazing. Anyway also the other rooms are OK. The bar can get very hot and crowded over the weekend, with some nice live music as well (during my stay some Latino music which was fantastic). Breakfast is not cheap, agree.... And probably you can find some better value around the area.... So; nobody actually forces us to have breakfast at the hotel (even if I actually did it every day of my stay :). I will go back for sure, as I do twice a year for the past ....... Few years :)))
"Fine short stay"
Stayed only a couple of nights whilst attending a business meeting. Room was fine - clean but a little small with no frills. Couldn't get TV to work and it took two requests at reception to get it fixed. Also had no complimentary shower gel but was supplied with some when asked (not sure if it's normaly supplied but tends to be in most hotels I've used) also one of the wall,lights looked to have been knocked at some point and was coming away from the wall - looked as though screws needed tightening. Overall nice hotel in a very convenient location and friendly helpful staff. Really nice bar too that was very popular - need to reserve a table if needed on a Saturday evening.
