Not as nice as the Ritz Carlton Dubai as no pool or same facilities and looks older but a nice stay nonetheless. Club lounge a bit small and overall lacks nice outdoor space to relax but service good, as always. Room ok, good sleep quality. Not as modern as others.

Rooms were ok but bit small. General areas were grotty. Service ok , but what do you expect? It is a glorified Marriott. Dont pay $500 though. Gym was in basement. Old equipment. Hotel needs a makeover.

The Ritz is nice. Rooms have typical Ritz comfort (great beds). The gym is large with lots of options (although I wish it has some windows). The Hotel is a great choice in San Francisco but if you like to walk around often, make sure you are okay with the walk up Nob Hill. If you are great place. Note... More

As to be expected from a Ritz the place was very luxurious. The location is very central to some great areas of San Fran. The rooms were extremely comfortable and very well appointed. The concierge and bell staff were always helpful and considerate.

The club level at the Ritz Carlton in SF is absolutely fabulous. The service is consistently outstanding. We had a rental car that they returned for us so we didn't have to get out again. The attention to detail is excellent because they seem to anticipate things before you know you need them. Everyone is gracious and helpful. Each time... More

I had read a number of mediocre reviews before arriving at this hotel. I was pleasantly surprised. The lobby is pretty and spotless. Everyone we met was very kind and helpful. There was always something nice in the lobby such as fruited water, coffee, fortune cookies, or organic plums (delicious). We had a room on the lobby level (which is... More

Our connecting suite and room were of a good size for our family of 5. The views of the city were ok, but some of the furniture (for example the TV) were oddly placed in front of the big windows, so the views were blocked and the rooms felt smaller than they actually were. Location is ok, close to Chinatown,... More

We were so pleased with our stay at the Ritz SF. The service was impeccable - everything was delivered promptly and with great attention to detail. The bell staff was courteous and super helpful. The housekeeping was very well done. Even room service, which at many RC's is good but not great - was excellent. Our suite was well appointed... More

Have stayed here several times and am Marriott Platinum so I go out of my way to use Ritz/Marriott but will probably not be coming back here, with so many other great choices in the City. This visit was a big disappointment. I read these other reviews here and feel like I was at a different hotel. The usual Ritz... More
