“Originally constructed for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915, the hotel takes a hint from that time period. Even the meeting and event spaces honor those who played a large part in cultivating that historic fair: The space formerly known as the Velvet Room, and before that Asia de Cuba, is now named after George Applegarth, the original architect of The Clift."

“Right upon walking into the lobby, repeat visitors will notice a big difference. The color scheme is much lighter, with shades of white, gray and metallic accents. The vibe is more modern and less moody."
