I decided to stay at Clift hotel with my family to close off a 3 weeks trip through the US ending in San Francisco where we wanted a central hotel with good accommodation. I stayed at Clift for business already and it is really well situated - they have great packages (if you book upfront) and big and clean rooms. We were offered internet for the 5 days we stayed but I would expect this kind of hotel to offer complimentary internet by definition... If you are looking for a nice spot to stay, very central (just a minute from marketstreet, Union Square,...) the Clift is a great hotel to stay in.
"Great location, nice rooms, good service"
Can't beat the location for a visit to SF. Rooms are nice although a bit dated. Very comfortable though. Service and the front desk and bell stand was great. Housekeeping could use some improvement. There was rubber bath mat for the tub until we asked. The clock was accurate and couldn't figure out how to change it. Didn't find the housekeeper on our floor very friendly. However, we'd definitely stay here again.
"Good place for fun"
The hotel is well located with a friendly staff. It's been totally remodeled to adopt a design-hotel style. The bar and lounge are the best parts of the facility. However, don't expect to eat anything during the day while the kitchen is closed. Nice decoration and the room itself is comfortable. Despite the nice refurbished bedroom, bathroom is tiny.
"Shoulda Liked it "
This is one of those hotels that gets lots of press out of town for being a sumptuous, luxury hotel. The photos of the hotel are nice, but seeing this place IRL is always interesting. Check out a map online. Here in town it isn't considered "one of those good hotels". It tries to bill itself that way, but it doesn't stand among the top 10 luxury places you can stay, if that matters. I booked online and they lost my reservation. As it was on my phone, I had proof that the reservation was made (not through Travelocity) so they had to honor the reservation though they did NOT honor the price. As my girlfriends and I were in the City, we had little choice but to accept the higher price foisted upon us. First of all its in a borderline sketch area. That is FINE, but don't say you're on Union Square. Union Square adjacent or Tenderloin is most accurate. If you find yourself feeling unsafe after hours, this is when you'll notice one block in a regentrifying neighborhood makes a huge difference. If you are getting a severely discounted room rate, great, but don't pay for a luxury room in a location that is far from posh; save yourself that disappointment. I only drive in 50 minutes for this rubbish. If I came from hours away I'd be horrified AND angry! The decor is cool and Phillipe Starck did a wonderful job in the clean rooms. Also check out a bar visit to the Redwood Room. Okay, so this part is nice and it's a nice way to start before you move on to the legit restaurants in the City. There are a lot of other interesting elements to this place. A lot of swingers gather here, and a lot of these types of events take place here. All well and good with consenting adults blah blah blah but if you're sitting with friends at the bar and constantly asked if you're "at the party" or "know the room number upstairs", it is tiring and tedious.
"Glitzy but not luxury"
The design elements in the hotel, and the service, were impeccable. I received a room on the interior of the building for quiet, and on the 10th floor. The walls/doors of the hotel room I noticed were thin, just old, or somewhat old and flimsy -- the room didn't have the "weight" of some other higher end hotels I've stayed at in the past. The perfume pumped into the lobby is awful, and the lobby is so dark -- which might be okay for rendezvous but not for any sort of photograph taking.
