"Wouldn't hesitate to recommend"
I stayed at the Clift for two nights while in San Francisco and was really happy with my choice. I'd done a lot of research and knew I wanted to stay close to Union Square and this was perfect. I had been concerned about some of the reviews warning about its proximity to the Tenderloin area but I felt completely safe. Overall the Clift has a funky vibe and a great location. Rooms are small but perfectly nice and clean. I would definitely recommend to others considering staying here and would visit again myself in the future.
"Great lobby, mediocre rooms"
I had gone for drinks at the Clift a number of times and was looking forward to booking a room. The lobby and bar of this hotel are hip and cool and I fully expected the same from the rooms. Especially since the price (over $500/night) was one of the highest in the area for the night I booked. Unfortunately, the room was underwhelming to say the least. Dirty carpet, weird purple walls, furniture that looked like it was from Ikea, and a random piece of plywood blocking off one half of the closet (seriously'). I would go for drinks again, but I will be staying somewhere else.
"Nice place in Union Square"
Wanted a room with two beds, but it was next to impossible. Extremely busy and bustling, especially in the lobby in the evening. The bar is very pretty, but extremely dark even during happy hour. I found the front desk to be understaffed, but the bellmen and doormen were very good and helpful. Not crazy about staying in Union Square but that's not the hotel's fault. It's a hotel that's trying to be hip, but falls short as it's already feeling a bit dated. But overall very good. The hallways are showing serious wear and need to be renovated. Bathrooms very tiny and again in need of renovation.
"One Night Stay"
Great location. The Red Room is a favorite. The room furnishing & carpet were a bit worn. I didn't set the alarm and it went off at 6:15 am, 45 minutes before I wanted to get up. Thought I'd turned it off, but it was just snooze. After 3 attempts, I gave up, got up and unplugged it. Same thing happened to my business partner in his room.
"Trendy yet dark"
Enjoyed the amenities in the room, and the corner room surrounded with windows, made the room feel very light and airy - which made a small room feel a little bigger. The lobby and hallways downstairs are very dark which makes it feel a bit clubbish. I was only in town for a night, so didn't sample the restaurant or bar. Felt upscale and trendy, and the concierge was quick to point out the areas on the map to avoid walking through given that it is surrounded by some areas that aren't so great.
