The good things about this hotel are its location in central San Francisco and its convenience for the cable car. When we arrived in the lobby on the first day there was a wall of noise from the bar on the far side which was so loud it was difficult to check in because we could not make ourselves heard. The other problem is the twilight in the lobby. A permanent effect which, combined with the noise makes it a lobby where you can not see or hear. The room was very good although there were not enough coat hangers, picky, I know, and our request for more was politely ignored. There are also no drawers in the room which is odd.
"Trendy and hip hotel"
We loved our stay at the Clift hotel. Centrally located and the price was less than most of the other hotels nearby. Our room was beautiful with lots of space. The only downside was there was no closet in the room- a little weird, but it's trendy and mod- we made do without it!! Make sure and head to Union square when you leave the hotel- it is a bit scary going down Taylor.
"Great location for Union Square, efficient but not over friendly"
We have just come back from 5 day stay here. Staff very efficient on check in though not overly friendly. We had a room on the 11th floor good views (of other buildings) but to be expected in a city. Delux room was spacious (limited furnishings) but comfortably with air-conditioning. Bathrooms spotless and comfortable. One disappointment was there was no sense of Christmas AT ALL! Service at breakfast was again efficient. Overall great location for a city centre stay, efficient but not over friendly.
"Between Average & Good!"
As always let's start with the positives. Excellent downtown location, convenient for everything including public transport and, more importantly, shopping. Redwood Room a draw though on the night of our stay it was closed for a private party. It was one of the reasons I chose the hotel; I think an email warning of this in advance would have been a good idea. When I complained, in mild fashion, receptionist sent a split of champagne to the room which was a nice but, let's face it, slightly parsimonious gesture. She was very pleasant though. Rooms and closets are goodly sized by SF standards, bedding and beds very good, water pressure and temperature excellent. In keeping with it's energetic attempts to be on trend and cool the common areas are extremely dark which might prove difficult for some guests. The rooms need updating and the bathrooms are desperate for the same! DES-PER-ATE! For foreign visitors unused to the presence of homeless people sleeping on pavements the poor wretch sleeping not 20 feet from the front door might come as a bit of a shock. In all I think it's overpriced and would only stay here again if at a bargain price. As a previous reviewer said the Kimpton hotels provide more for less.
"It's not a Kimpton"
From what I had heard over the years and the experiences I have had buying $20+ cocktails in the RedWood room my first actual stay here was underwhelming. I almost always stay at a Kimpton, they are just the best operators in the business and for less money could have this trip. The room I had on the 3rd floor was pretty tired and dated for sure.
