Why We Like This Place

Elegantly balancing both Western and Eastern influences, the Hotel Kabuki is a serene retreat in the heart of historic Japantown. This Joie de Vivre property has a modern, sophisticated interior, filled with elements that also reflect the refined beauty of the past.

A distinctively Japanese tone is set by the Summer Garden, a calm enclave featuring a koi pond and waterfall surrounded by a perfectly manicured landscape. This is a lovely spot for a small ceremony and wedding photos.

On every floor you’ll discover displays of priceless art, some of it dating back to the 1700s. Downstairs on the Garden Level, the impressive Imperial Ballroom features hand-painted Japanese murals, custom-made chandeliers and sconces, and a parquet dance floor. Through a large picture window you have a view of the Spring Garden, an artful arrangement of white rocks and lush ferns. Prefunction cocktails are often served in the Imperial Ballroom Foyer, whose walls are lined with exquisite, one-of-a-kind Japanese artworks.

Back up on the Lobby level is the hotel’s junior ballroom, the Sakura Room. This space is notable for its shoji-coffered ceiling and view of the Summer Garden through a floor-to-ceiling window. Natural light flows into the room during the day, and at night adjustable lighting allows you to create whatever ambiance you like. The Garden, softly lit in the evening, is a tranquil addition to the mood you’ve created. Additional rooms, some with garden vistas, are available for smaller functions.

If you stay overnight here, you’ll enjoy services unique to this premier hotel. Bathing, for example, is taken to a luxurious new level: In guest rooms, deep-soaking tubs are ergonomically designed to let you immerse your entire body up to the neck in hot water enhanced by whatever soothing bath product you’ve chosen from the inspired bath menu. Just a block and a half away from the hotel is Kabuki Springs and Spa—and hotel guests receive a complimentary pass to the Spa’s communal baths, the only facility of its kind in the city. So here’s a fun idea: Why not incorporate this Japanese ritual into your bachelorette party festivities? Follow it up with one or two exotic body treatments (think green tea wrap and Javanese Frangipani oil massage) and even an acupuncture session, and you and your friends will look and feel cool, calm and collected for your trip down the aisle.

The Hotel Kabuki is pet-friendly, and its central location puts you within walking distance to shopping, dining, a new Sundance film theater complex, and a variety of music venues. Union Square, the Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park, Chinatown and the famed cable cars, as well as the Fillmore district, are also nearby.

Whether you’re planning an intimate rehearsal dinner, a gala reception or a post-wedding brunch, Hotel Kabuki’s variety of options, multilingual staff and emphasis on personalized service will make it a success.
