This was our second visit, and it has a lost a little bit of it´s edge. Just a short stroll to Union Square and you are in the heart of San Francisco.
The "stark" design was evident in the bathroom, and the dressing room (we took a suite) with poor lighting. Housekeeping was a let down, but It will be my hotel of choice when I return, because the up-sides are worth it. Great friend staff, valet parking at a cost, and could have a better location

Room Tip: they have a "smoking " floor for "sinners"

The lobby design is interesting especially the bar looks yummy and sexy at night, the design idea must be popular couple years ago, it reminds me the Spanish artist Dali. However, compare with the heavy drapery, 1001 night feeling and dark colour scheme lobby floor, the hotel room is extremely bare and simple. We stayed at deluxe room, the room size is big. If you travel with kids, you have enough room for luggage and stroller but the bathroom is too tiny and simple, it is not user friendly. They charge USD60 per night for valet parking, and self-parking is not nearby.

Stayed here for 3 nights in a Loft Junior Suite. the room was very spacious, and the bed was super comfortable but the experience left me feeling a little cold. I'm not sure whether it was because we booked the room through a 3rd party online booking agent, or if they have front desk issues, but when we arrived (at 4:30pm) we were told our room wasn't ready and would we mind going into a different room on a lower floor that had a wheelchair friendly bathroom set up, when I asked what time our room would be ready the girl on duty said she wasn't sure as the previous guest hadn't checked out yet. After a long flight, and arriving well after check in time, this isn't what you want to hear but I said we'd be happy to sit down and have a coffee while she worked it out, it was only then that the colleague working next to her told her that she should be able to shuffle things and give us a room straight away. After dealing with all that, she then said "will you be right getting your luggage to you room, or do you need help"...that's the first time I've ever been asked that instead of just being offered assistance, which in a rather large city hotel I think is poor. We also had to struggle with the doors on the way in and out of the hotel by ourselves, and the help of other guests, due to a shortage of front of house staff.
With a stylish lobby and bar area, after dark the Clift becomes a rather popular destination for the party crowd, which means that your interrogated by security when you come back into the hotel after 9 and have to show photo I'd proof your a guest. I understand why, but they need to find a better system, your left feeling like you're lucky to gain entry, rather than the normal 'Welcome back' greeting. I put a lot of research into booking accomodation for this trip, the Clift looked great online but in reality, the next visit I'll head to the Westin or Fairmont where I received better service from hotel staff even as a dinner guest.

The hotel is located to many good restaurants, bars and tourist things. The staff all were very helpful and nice. The bar at hotel is very up scale with nice service. The security is tight around the hotel which I liked.

when we went to check in to this hotel they claimed our reservation had been cancelled, and they were sold out so they would check into what they could do.
afar waiting 20 minutes i decided to call amex who we booked the reservation online with. they confirmed the reservation was there and confirmed by hotel, AMEX called the hotel and resolved the issue. the hotel never apologized or did anything for our inconvenience.
the room was tiny, outdated and not well kept up.

in better new the concierge and maid staff were wonderful and the concierge helped my finance sort out some details for a picnic he planned for us.

overall the lobby is nice, but i would never stay here again. there are better places in san fran for this rate!!
