Formerly the private home of the late Frederick Clift, the hotel’s original owner in 1913, Spanish Suite now serves as an elegant private function room with over 2300 square feet of space, including an outdoor terrace with stunning views of San Francisco. Many period details remain, including rich wood-paneled walls, two enormous crystal chandeliers and a wood-burning fireplace. The classically chic custom furnishings, rich velvet drapes, lushly landscaped terraces and panoramic city views make Spanish Suite perfect weddings. 

Located on the 15th floor, Spanish Suite features an indoor parlor, reminiscent of the historic mansions of San Francisco, complete with hardwood floors and a crystal chandelier. Spanish Suite boasts a fully tented weather-proof terrace and an open-air balcony, offering guests expansive views of San Francisco.
