Very beautiful lobby and lounge. Room was clean and comfortable but the bathroom showed some age. Great location within walking distance of a lot of great restaurants and bars. Overall a very nice hotel and would highly recommend.

"Not what would be expected."
Highly disappointed. For the price rooms should be much nicer. Decor makes it seem dreary everywhere in the hotel. If this hotel was on the Vegas strip it would be lucky to get a 1 1/2 star rating.

"Staycation"
The Clift is a beautiful hotel in a wonderful city. The hotel staff and guest services were welcoming and more than accommodating. My husband and I have been staying at The Clift for years and we look forward to continuing to do so.

"Great Time in SF"
Comfortable stay. Great to be in city's center. 24 diner at end of street was a blessing. Walked everywhere. Good location. A tad noisy with the door slamming. Not quite sure if it came from housekeeping or guests. But if it came from housekeeping maybe mention to shut doors not let them slam. Just a note. Otherwise staff and stay were great!!!! Also didn't know Clift turns into proper club on weekends. It was a nice surprise to see it so lively.

"Clift hotel San Francisco"
overall a great experience. The noise and rush of the city was left behind as soon as we walk through the front door... Reception area of the hotel very clean and impressive and was immediately greeted by Valet and reception staff.check in was quick and easy and staff was very professional and courteous. got into the room and our room was very clean very spacious and had a good view of downtown San Francisco.staff was very courteous and professional through out the length of our stayand I would definitely recommend the hotel to friends and family staying in downtown San Francisco. I'll be back if my travels ever bring me back through San Francisco and I'm looking for an above average hotel.

"Friday night at the Clift"
Beautiful hotel interior as far as the lobby and bar and such. Very vibrant at night (or maybe it was because it was a Friday night?). Anyhow, the room was very small and bathroom was even smaller. They added mirrors in front of and behind the bed, so it looked like more room but it was still obviously small. The bathroom was the size of a coat closet. But the bed was pretty comfortable. Staff was really nice as well. Parking overnight was expensive but when I had to wait upwards of 45 minutes for my car to come around after checking out because the valet manager brought up the wrong car, I was refunded my $52 parking fee for one night of parking. So I was happy about that.

The location, lobby and the bed were the highlights of my stay. Walkable from the Powell Bart station. The lobby is modern and stylish with a bar/club attached. The room itself was just ok. Nothing fancy to rave about. Small with a tiny bathroom and chips in the bathtub porcelain.

"Very Nice Hotel In Union Square"
Check in process was a breeze. The room was spacious compared to other hotels in the area that i had stayed. Hotel is walking distance from shopping,restaurants,and pharmacy. Hotel has nice bar/lounge area in lobby and is happening on weekends. Parking is pricey but you can expect the same anywhere else in the City. There are multiple parking garages near the hotel that you can park for half the price. I would stay again.

"4 out of 5 stars"
The valet parking is a bit absurdly priced at $52 per night plus a 14% tax. When I checked into my room I was given a room on the 3rd floor. I went to my room and it smelled horribly of cigarette smoke. I called to the front desk and they changed my room to a lovely room on the 16th floor. That definitely made my stay that much better. It was a bit of a pain to have to go to the lobby to get my coffee in the morning. The lemon/cucumber water was a nice touch.

"Don't stay in a room with adjoining door. A+ hotel"
I usually stay at the Clift Hotel when I'm in town. The rooms are nice and comfortable. All the staff are helpful, accommodating, and most of all nice. One major tip: DO NOT GET A ROOM WITH AN ADJOINING DOOR. You can hear every single conversation from your neighbor. My neighbors were up until 5am and I couldn't sleep. Fortunately, they changed and upgraded my room for the following night.

The Clift is great... Redwood room is nice for a pre-evening cocktail and also turns into a bit of a scene at night. Hotel staff were helpful and friendly as well.

"A Wonderful Retreat!"
We requested and we were very pleasantly given a complimentary upgrade from a deluxe king to a studio suite. The king bed was in a cozy sleeping alcove and the living room had a large window with a sunny view of Nob Hill. We had early check-in to unpack and then went to a theatre matinee. Returning to the hotel, we had a cocktail in the historic Redwood Room. Our room was so inviting and comfortable, we used room service for dinner and breakfast the next morning. We wanted a relaxing escape and the Clift proved to be perfect.

"Mixed feelings..."
PROS: - Very Convenient Location- Union Square, close to all major transportation - Great Customer Service at Check-in - Rooms were clean, neat and decently spacious CONS: - Very thin walls mean you get hear everything from outside the hotel and in hotel (hallways and neighboring rooms) - This one is a big one: The hotel has it's own lounge and it gets pretty populated after work hours. During the short time we spent in the lounge we noticed there were a lot of women walking around that were there to find "business". One even openly solicited to my friend. I would expect that kind of thing at a club or some independent lounge but not a 4-star rated hotel.
