We only stayed here for one night and wished we would have had a chance for a longer stay. The room was well appointed and immaculately clean. The spacious bathroom was very convenient when traveling with a four people. Had a great night sleep on the comfortable beds. You are just feet from a cable car stop which takes you... More

My husband and I spent two nights (friday and saturday) here back in June. We reserved a club level room. The room and bathroom were nice yet small but I would not expect anything less due to the location and the age of the hotel. The hotel lobby is beautiful and the staff working the front desk as well as... More

The Ritz Carlton Hotel San Francisco is the most beautiful and exceptional hotel that we have ever stayed in. All of the staff are so polite and helpful and no question or request is a problem. We were treated like "royality". We recommend this hotel to everyone looking for "that something special". The Ritz Carlton Hotel made are trip to... More

Nice enough hotel, well staffed with great, attentive employees but the hotel itself is getting a little frayed at the edges. The lobby and lobby bar are too small, there's no views to speak of and the prices are, literally, crazy. Our friends stayed at the Fairmont two blocks away and I will too, next time. Huge lobby, vaulted ceilings... More

Dear KevinCowTown, Thank you for your balanced and candid review. I wanted you to know that the hotel is undergoing a top to bottom renovation that will be complete in February. We are working with a top international design firm, and the final results will be stunning, so I hope you will stay with us again. Warm regards, Jim B More

I recently spent one night at the Ritz SF having just left a stay at the Ritz Half Moon Bay (we had an early flight out and thought it would be easier to get to the airport). We stayed on the concierge floor and with parking the bill approached $1000. The good - the hotel itself is a lovely building... More

Dear DNS5, While I appreciate your review, I am certainly disappointed in our performance and will use this excellent feedback to improve and elevate our services to better meet the expectations of our guests. We have been proud to set the standard for club level accommodations for Ritz-Carlton, but clearly we fell short during your stay. Our concierge ladies and... More

Myself and my husband stayed here for the weekend and found all the staff so helpful and friendly. The lounge and bar staff all remembered our name every time we went there. The room service was prompt and food lovely. It was a little expensive but was worth it. The room was very big and comfortable and the beds so... More

This was not my first stay at the Ritz Carlton San Francisco, and God willing, will not be my last. There are not enough superlatives to describe the service we receive at this property. Upon check in, I was informed that this was our 25 th stay at a Ritz Carlton property. Who bother chain keep track of that.? We... More

My first stay at a Ritz Carlton. It's old by USA standards, a grand building and charming. It took ages to check in with just 2 people ahead of me and 2 check-in clerks - doesn't make sense for a hotel costing over $300 (and that was a special conference rate). Staff are friendly in that superficial I-must-work-for-my-tip way but... More

Though getting a little dated, this SF hotel lives up to the old world charm of san francisco. Rooms and common areas are elegantly appointed, service is polite and discreet and the signature restaurant is michelin rated. Ask for a room that face the park.

The place needs a makeover. Corridors and carpets look tired. Management know this but having people replace the a small section of wallpaper at 9am with the smell of turpentine does not go well with guests. Beds are the worst. Lumpy and soft, I couldnt sleep at all. I felt if I slept in the middle it was like being... More
