Visited San Fran for business in January and love, love, loved the Clift.
I'm into design in a big way and loved all the quirky touches in this hotel - the reception was brilliant with all its unique furniture and I really enjoyed sitting in front of the open fire.
Also really liked the lilac/white/perspex touches in lobby areas on different floors; felt very fresh and different and you could tell it had been designed incredibly well with all aspects considered.
Room was absolutely lovely, both in terms of design and all the fittings and bits you need ro a short break. The bathroom wasn't quite as huge and well-equipped as other hotels I've stayed in during trips to the States, but I almost liked that more - it felt very European and homely.
Really loved the bar downstairs - I'd visit again in a heartbeat if I was staying elsewhere in the city.
I know some people have commented about the area to the south, but it didn't bother me particularly - had a few nights out and didn't feel unsafe particularly, although maybe that comes from living in London! Anyway, you have Union Square a few steps down in the other direction!
Loved the conference rooms and facilities too, which I think is a first - never normally feel like they have much design/thought behind them, but they definitely did here!
