Hotel Overview

An inspired fusion of old-world hotel elegance with distinctly contemporary energy and glamour, the nearly century-old Clift's modern and daring sense of diversity perfectly captures the city's spirit. Steps from Union Square shopping and the legendary Nob Hill, Clift is perfectly located for sightseeing, shopping and socializing. Clift's classic stone exterior opens onto a glowing purple entryway that prepares guests for the wonderland within. Designed by Philippe Starck, the soaring lobby contains one of the most eclectic furniture collections in all of California, with chairs from Ray and Charles Eames, a coffee table by Salvador Dali, a surreal stool by Renee Marguerite, and a sculpture custom made by William Sawaya. The centerpiece is a thirty-five-foot fireplace with a Bronze chimney sculpture by Gerard Garouste. The thrilling monumental scale and fantastical furnishings create a dream-like composition that is the cornerstone of Clift's magic.

Chic and elegant, while at the same time warm and comfortable, the Private Apartment has the look and feel of a classic turn of the century home, with a distinctly modern twist.
  • Deluxe Suite -A haven of luxury, this suite offers high ceilings, a formal dining room and a sumptuous oversized bathroom with dressing area. Enjoy fine linens, agua by Korres bath amenities and a state-of-the-art entertainment center. Beautifully crafted and detailed furniture designed by Philippe Starck features English sycamore, silk, leather, velvet, chrome and Venetian Murano glass. Outfitted in tranquil and warm shades of ivory, grey and lavender, this divine space exudes a sensual softness that is a welcome counterpoint to the hustle and bustle of urban life.
  • Standard -Life becomes theatre in this striking space, featuring beautifully crafted furniture custom-designed by Philippe Starck. English sycamore is accented by velvet, leather and chrome. A wooden "wheelbarrow" chair inspired by Man Ray is illuminated by a custom Venetian Murano glass lamp. The luxurious 400 thread count bedding, down duvet and Merino wool blanket are a perfect complement to the room's muted elegance, contributing to its superbly sensual, tactile quality. Indulge in lavish agua by Korres bath amenities or enjoy entertainment on demand and in-room wireless.


  • Redwood Room -Clift's famous and historic Redwood Room has been restored and reinvented as an exceptionally elegant and modern San Francisco bar. Suffused with all-out glamour, the interior features the original redwood paneling and enormous bar, which, legend has, was carved from a single redwood tree, as well as Starck-designed lounge furniture and an ever-changing array of digital artwork displayed on plasma television screens hung throughout the room. A cherished San Francisco landmark, the Redwood Room is back and better than ever.
  • Asia de Cuba -The San Francisco outpost of Jeffrey Chodorow's acclaimed Asia de Cuba restaurant has been designed to complement the legendary glamour of the Redwood Room. The renowned and innovative Asian-Latin cuisine is served in an atmosphere of unabashed glamour: lush silk curtains, mahogany and leather banquettes, hand-blown Murano glass lamps, and a spectacular cross-shaped and illuminated communal dining table made entirely of hand-etched Venetian mirror.
