Highs & Lows

  • Every nook and cranny of this Beaux Arts space is beautifully designed without being over done.

  • I can't say enough great things about the rooftop bar and restaurant. It's a little oasis of calm and culinary delight in the middle of the city.

  • Probably the friendliest hotel managers and staff I've met.

  • The landmarked building from 1909 gives you the feeling of being in old school SF, with a fresh, contemporary vibe. Plus, with so many cool-designed meeting rooms and common areas, an event, meeting, or just seeing a friend here feels like a special occasion.

  • The neighborhood might feel overwhelming for those from out of town, but it's super central and close to great museums, shopping, restaurants, etc.

  • Very convenient that there's a valet parking option, but it's definitely on the pricey side.
