"Boutique-y gem in the heart of downtown Frisco"
Hotel signs were not visible from the street, so we drove past it twice before we realized it was actually best to trust our GPS. From the moment we pulled up, the Staff was quite pleasant and helpful. On our first night there, I noticed that the tub drained quite slowly (water up to our ankles); the next day, upon departing for sightseeing, I reported it to the Front Desk associate. She was very concerned and pleasant, and said she would report it for rectification. Sure enough, upon our return from the day, the tub drained normally. Although the building is "old," it's been decorated in a boutique-y modern motif while retaining some legacy features such as the redwood-paneled bar and restaurant. We almost gave the breakfast buffet a miss but decided to go with it, since we had a full day of sightseeing ahead of us. The buffet was simple but remarkable...their organic ingredients and preparation made the difference. This was our first time at the Clift and we would return.
"Fun in the Sun"
This was my second time staying here and it was great. My room was spectacular! The staff was curtious and respectful. Both nights I donned in the redwood room my meals were tasty and filling. I was a bit let down because it was the same menu as my last stay. I would suggest they should mix it up every couple of months. Definitely looking forward to my next stay at the Clift.
"Great location, cool vibe, light updating"
The Clift is a terrific boutique hotel and well located in downtown San Francisco. There's great attention to detail throughout the hotel with a particular emphasis on high design, which makes for very enjoyable change of pace from the large chains. There is, however, a need for some updating of the bathrooms as the fixtures are tired and the paint on the tubs is starting to chip and flake.
"The legendary Clift is delightful!"
I have wanted to stay at The Clift for 35 years! It is elegant, perfectly positioned, and a totally satisfying experience. The Redwood Lounge is reminiscent of The Ahwahnee Hotel. We most particularly enjoyed the view from our corner room on the 9th floor.
Good location, close to public transport links and restaurants. Room very comfortable and the bar and lounge area cosy with fabulous open fire. Only criticism was that when we were there it could get a little boisterous at night, and a broken glass outside our door remained there all day.
