Good value
Good value for SF. We were in SF to visit family and for business. SF is an expense place to visit. Although a historic property, the Clift has been given a contemporary makeover and offers the conveniences a more modern hotel. The hotel is located near shopping and public transportation.

Good 6.0
Cleanliness and room fixtures condition below par
The hotel overall cleanliness is below standard. Filthy carpets in my room, female black hair on the bathroom ceiling and the bathroom tub, sticky bed side tables ... The overall condition of the light and bathroom’s fixtures in my room was also laughable, with wiggly plugs, pre-war shower and sink fixtures and so on. On top of this, mo chance to be given an equivalent room in better conditions or a free upgrade ...

It’s in a very convenient location; easy to walk to cable car, Bart, & street car stops, shopping & restaurants. the staff was great! Very cool lobby. The rooms are a nice size, but a small bathroom & limited storage space to unpack.

Very Good 8.0
The Clift is a conveniently located property. The lobby is very attractive and the lobby bar is legendary. The sleeping rooms are nicely appointed, but small (like most San Francisco hotels). The bathroom was cramped and could probably use a bit of a refresh, but everything worked well. The staff at the hotel are really nice and very accommodating. I would stay here again.
