Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This celebrated, landmark hotel has been beautifully reimagined for modern couples. The oversized guest rooms and suites are tranquil and luxurious, with all the upscale amenities you might expect from such a distinguished hotel, and its location in the heart of Union Square is perfect for exploring the best of the city's dining, culture, and shopping.
  • The sophisticated 15th-floor Spanish Suite is airy and modern; formerly the residence of Frederick Clift, the hotel's original owner, today it boasts a refined neutral palette of color and textures along with panoramic views of the San Francisco cityscape. Or, celebrate in the gorgeous, iconic Redwood Room, which exudes Art Deco glamour.
  • Selecting a spectacular menu is easy, thanks to the skill of in-house culinary team. Each delectable dish highlights California’s culinary traditions and farm-fresh ingredients in innovative combinations, along with exceptional wine, beer, and spirits selections deserving of the remarkable setting.
