stayed at the clift for business in january as part of a SF/LA/san diego/las vegas trip. started with a new company so i tried to watch the expenses and got a great rate on kayak for under 200 per night.
hotel is in the union square area, so it is near some good shopping and food. unfortunately the area also has a lot of vagrants around but that is also SF in general so i am certainly not singling it out here.
the hotel has a great scene in the bar and i would highly recommend checking it out for that alone. good crowd, very hip, and some cool wall art that changes as time goes on.
check-in was easy though i arrived around midnight on a wed so the valet was a little slow in getting to me. at 50/night, i was hoping it was a little more responsive.
room was small and no frills but i did have a nice view from the 15th floor. decor was funky and cool, with lots of mirrors and curtains...sort of a bordello thing.
restaurant served a good breakfast buffet so i recommend that.
it is a cool boutique hotel. it isn't the four seasons and doesn't try to be.
for hip, it is good.
i would stay here again.
