    Location is good, lobby area is trendy but rooms are very different, thought mine was quite spacious with walking wardrobe. I spent a week there and service was very changeble, focused on the too many groups staying at the hotels.

    The Clift is an excellently located hotel. Unfortunately, for me, that is where the plaudits end! It is a very tired hotel with small bedrooms and bathrooms, in desperate need of renovation and, although well situated, no where near worth the rates charge.

    I usually stay at the Marriott Marquis but the pricing surge for the week went from less than $300 to over $500. So I found the Clift on GEARY street that was reasonably priced. The rooms are big and spacious but the bathrooms are old....More

    Beautifully and elegantly remodeled classic old San Francisco hotel. Centrally located with excellent and friendly service. Great breakfast available. Old fashioned building but very contemporary and modern inside.
