From the moment the red-suited Beefeater doorman whisks you into our ornate lobby, it’s clear: you’ve arrived at a San Francisco icon. Thanks to sweeping renovations carried out in 2019, you’ll notice our historic hotel effortlessly fuses traditional with timeless. The grand staircases, gilded ceilings, sleek marble walls, and crystal chandeliers evoke an old-world charm you won’t find anywhere else, while thoughtfully updated furnishings in the lobby as well as our guest rooms and suites showcase how modern comforts fit beautifully within our classical setting. But we think you’ll be even more impressed with the one-of-a-kind experience at our buzzing lobby bar, exceptional Italian eatery, and glam nightspot with sweeping city views, before you retire to your serene guest room (not to mention the heartfelt hospitality you’ve come to expect from Kimpton). Best of all, the city is literally at your doorstep— shopping, dining, entertainment, and much more!
