Popped in for a one night rendezvous. First impression: short, awkward, valet loading zone. The valet attendent, and service overall, was courteous and efficient. As mentioned in other reviews, there really isn't a lobby to lounge. This former Mandarin Oriental property seems to be partially remodeled as far as I can see from online photos. Our room faced south, and the view was just okay. The bedroom part of our room seemed to be have been remodelded, but I think the bathroom was a remanent of MO. We visited the restaurant bar, and it was lovely. Excellent drinks and snacks and a mature crowd. We later enjoyed room service which was delicious. Neighborhood-wise, this is the financial district that keeps business hours, so don't expect a lively scene. Overall, a very good stay.
"Excellent Service and Great Rooms with a View!"
You cannot go wrong. Staff new our names at every turn, great room with a bay view- I requested the bay view room after checking into a city view room and the front desk switched me withing 5 mins! Concierge was very knowledgeable and helpful!
"Wow, what a view!"
A truly memorable night. We wanted to get in earlier and stay longer but were competing with literally thousands of Oracle conventioneers. We got a 43rd floor room overlooking the whole bay so the Golden Gate bridge, Coit Tower, Alcatraz, Transamerica tower, and most of the classic views were in plain sight. It was during a record setting heat wave (mid 90s) and our air conditioning didn't work at first. We went to dinner and it was good when we returned. We first stayed at a Loews for a wedding January 2016, and it was superb, the Loews Madison in DC. The capitol city was still reeling from a huge snowstorm a week earlier but the hotel didn't disappoint. If these two are any indication, this is a top notch brand.
"Best Hotel In SF"
This hotel is top notch from check-in to check-out. Staff is welcoming and helpful in recommendations nearby or across town. Location is also walkable to the Ferry Building. Clean rooms. We stayed in the City View Deluxe and had an amazing view of the Bay Bridge. Would highly recommend this hotel.
"Very Nice for Business"
What you would expect from a Loews property - nicely appointed, formal service, price tag to match. I prefer boutique hotels in quieter residential areas, but this is a good pic for business in SF, if you need to be downtown. Views are spectacular on the high floors. Rooms are large. Crowd is on the mature side and mostly business travelers or well-heeled foreign tourists.
