Luxury that lives up to its reputation.
This stately and majestic property was built in 1909 and occupies a full square block. The hotel's motto? Ladies and gentlemen serving ladies and gentlemen. Reopened as a 336-room luxury hotel in 1991, it boasts museum-quality art in its public areas. Accommodations are small but lavish, and guests look out onto views of the city, San Francisco Bay or the hotel's landscaped courtyard. Standard amenities include flat-screen televisions and in-room laptop safes. Higher-end amenities include iPod docking stations, bathroom televisions and Bang & Olufsen 14-speaker surround-sound systems. A two-floor club level with 52 rooms and fifteen suites has a dedicated concierge and is accessible with a separate elevator key. Guests staying here have access to a special club lounge with three complimentary food presentations daily. Dining on property is superlative, beginning with JCB Tasting Lounge by Jean-Charles Boisset, a chic wine bar ideal for private events. In addition, Parallel 37 serves market-driven California cuisine with international flair. Elsewhere on property, guests will find a 24-hour concierge, 24-hour room service, a spa and a fitness center with an indoor pool.
