"Great, funky hotel...."
We stayed here for 7 nights recently, and I must say we enjoyed the place a lot. The staff were very capable, and although the building is quite old, we had a great (North facing) room on a high floor which made for a peaceful sleep with great breezes. We were staying at the property when there was a major conference in town so the nightly rate more than doubled for 3 nights during the week. It would be well worth investigating if there is anything going on in town before you book as we were surprised by the way the rates were ramped up so high. The décor throughout the place is great, unusual in many cases but that all serves to make the place a bit more interesting. The redwood bar is very impressive and imposing even though it is a little bit on the pricey side. The choices on the drinks menu are endless and the bar staff are very good at their job. The velvet room (the restaurant) is equally impressive, however we attended for breakfast and the food was less impressive than the room itself. It was essentially cold, and the choices (compared to some other hotels) was quite limited. There is a fantastic (authentic) diner and deli directly across the road from the hotel which is well worth a visit. The location is excellent for Union square and all that has to offer, and other attractions such as the cable cars and major shopping centres are all just a very short stroll away. These minor things aside, we really liked the place. I would highly recommend it, and we will certainly be back on our next trip.
"Another really lovely visit to the hotel"
The staff are really accomodating, the corner room was fabulous and really big, and the place most definitely has some style. The bar after hours is great fun and it was a pleasure to come back. Wouldn't hesitate to return, thanks.
"Nice lobby...tiny rooms with thin walls"
Lobby was gorgeous so we thought we were in for a treat with this hotel. Once we saw the room, which is smaller than our bedroom in our tiny NYC apartment, we were not pleased. The walls also were super thin and could use a paint job. The "city view" for our room meant it was pretty dark and there was really no view at all. Would not recommend staying here but you should come here and grab a drink in the lobby.
"Great location, trendy decor"
This is my second stay at Clift and like my first visit I chose the hotel based on its location. Just off union square this hotel is in the centre of town and most major sights are accessible by foot. We booked a king exec and were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a junior suite. I had previously stayed in the standard queen which was very small (which is why I booked the King exec). This time the room was large with a seated living area a comfy queen size bed. The decor throughout the hotel is cool and quirky, however the colour used in the lobby and halls is calmed down to elegant neutral tones in the rooms creating a calm and inviting space. The only negative aspect of our room was the bathroom, it was very small for a suite and the showers temperature was a nightmare to get right. There is a excellent selection of Malin + Goetz toiletries provided but not additional items such as cotton face pads or toothpaste etc. The lounge area in the lobby is cosy with deep sofas, chess boards and the best selection of chairs I've ever seen ( all unique and many comfy - I didn't sit on all of them obviously). There is currently a happy hour promotion 5-7 Sun- Thurs which we took advantage of as well as some cocktails. All of these were great. I agree with other reviewers that the hotel needs some renovations. The paint needs to be retouched and the carpets feel a little bit worn. However this doesn't distract from what is still a cool and contemporary hotel. I would return again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others.
"My favourite place to stay in SF!"
Had the pleasure of staying here a few times now. Always loved it! Rooms are a tad small, but the design and layout are very cool. The location is perfect. The service is top notch. The Redwood Room is a great hot spot and hangout ... conveniently located a short elevator ride away!
