Local Area

Located in San Francisco’s Financial District and Union Square area, the Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel San Francisco places you in the midst of one of the city’s most historic regions. Before the Gold Rush years, this was the bay’s shoreline where miners came to have their findings weighed. Landfill was brought in soon after, laying the ground for old-style banking halls, towering skyscrapers, and an array of department stores. Finance, retail, culture, and a rich past all converge here – and it will all be right outside your door from one of the city’s most distinguished and historic hotels.
