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 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 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.

The Hotel Kabuki is pet-friendly, and it's located in one of San Francisco's most vibrant areas. Shopping, dining, the Sundance film theater complex, and a variety of music venues are all within walking distance. Union Square, the Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park, Chinatown and the famed cable cars, as well as the Fillmore district, are also nearby. Just a block and a half away is the famous Kabuki Springs and Spa—try one or two exotic body treatments (think green tea wrap and Javanese Frangipani oil massage) or an acupuncture session, and you and your friends will look and feel cool, calm and collected for your trip down the aisle.

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.
