Inspired by the classic luxury hotels of the early 20th century, The Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel San Francisco exudes modern elegance and refined touches at every turn. With a decidedly artful and local décor, the inspirational boutique property was beautifully renovated by famed interior designer Philippe Starck and boasts a stunning furniture collection including chairs from Ray and Charles Eames, furniture by Salvador Dalí, and a surreal stool inspired by René Magritte and designed by Roberto Matta.

The artistic sensibility resonates, too, in the Sonesta Food Is Art program, presented daily on the thoughtful menus of the legendary Redwood Room, also a Starck creation, the multi-purpose Velvet Room, and the English-club-style Living Room - all intimate spaces for dining, relaxing, visiting and lingering over a drink.

Centrally located in Union Square and near the Financial District, The Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel San Francisco is convenient to Fisherman’s Wharf, the Embarcadero, Nob Hill, the Moscone Convention Center, Telegraph Hill, Coit Tower and Chinatown.

Our warm and welcoming associates are eager for you to fully experience the City by the Bay that they know and love.
