What a lovely hotel. The service was impeccable. Thank you. I would love to have been able to have lunch in the restaurant. The decor and Fire in the lobby and lounge was beautiful and inspiring. I will definitely stay there again.

I selected the Clift for a meeting for about 40 people last year. There is nothing that could be approved upon! Highest marks to the staff, the venue, the meeting facilities, the banquet services, the sales and reservation team, the décor, the luxuries of the guest rooms...everything! The location is fantastic too! It is a boutique hotel - A Morgans... More

Great location, friendly staff. Cool bar, gets a bit crowded later on though. Recommend it for sure, definitely for business and probably for personal too. Gym is pretty good, small but good for a hotel gym.

the rooms are dated and could use some upgrading. The tub in the room I was in filled to my ankles in a couple minutes. Avoid rooms facing the street, as I was awoken before 7am with constant beeping of trucks and lots of traffic noise. otherwise, service was pleasant, the lobby was trendy and fun and location was alright...

Overall, it was a great experience and the service was excellent! The room was clean and comfortable and the lobby had a great fireplace where we enjoyed a drink before going out. The location was perfect. The only drawback was that the self parking was a little farther than we would have liked.

The bed was very comfortable. The location is great, within walking distance of Union Square, Market St. and several theaters. The other direction is a bit... More

Hotel staff was amazing....great, friendly service. Rooms are clean and trendy. Good location for walking to shops and restaurants. My only complaint is that the treadmills suck! No cusion at all, like running on a slab of steel. My back was hurting terribly after running on them the first day. Ran outside after that!
