Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Step through the doors of this Gothic-style tower and into its opulent Italian Renaissance lobby, and you’re likely to feel as if you’ve stepped back into the 1920s. Tucked just off Union Square and newly renovated with ultimate respect for its nearly 100-year history, this iconic hotel enchants guests with a winning combination of vintage splendor, modern twists, and caring personal service.
  • The Empire and Franciscan Ballrooms have a high-society, Age of Innocence ambiance, with breathtaking details like exquisite hand-painted murals, crystal chandeliers, and soaring ceilings embossed with delicate gold leaf touches. Both spaces have adjoining pre-function areas that create fantastic flow from one phase of your celebration to the next.
  • Soak in a panoramic 180-degree view of San Francisco in the dazzling Starlite Room. Perched on the hotel’s 21st floor, it boasts a gorgeous white marble bar, floor-to-ceiling windows that wrap around the room, and whimsical urban-chic touches like exposed brick and ductwork and eye-catching art pieces.
