An inspired fusion of old-world hotel elegance with distinctly contemporary energy and glamour, the nearly century-old Clift’s modern and daring sense of diversity perfectly captures the spirit of San Francisco, while maintaining its essence as a boutique luxury hotel. Designed by Philippe Starck, Clift features a soaring lobby with one of the most eclectic furniture collections in all of California, including chairs from Ray and Charles Eames, a coffee table by Salvador Dali, and a surreal stool by Renee Marguerite. The legendary Redwood Room bar, paneled with the wood of a single Redwood tree, is accented with digital art and the buzz of an elite San Francisco crowd. Velvet Room is a multi-purpose venue for eating, drinking and special events. Guests who simply want to relax, read, or just people watch, can find the comforts of an old English club in the Living Room. Clift is located just steps from Union Square and the Financial District, and close to Moscone Convention Center, Nob Hill, Fisherman's Wharf, Embarcadero, Telegraph Hill, Coit Tower and the Golden Gate Bridge.
