Hotel Description:
The historic CLIFT Hotel in San Francisco, Calif., blends old world ambience with modern glamour. This property is located two blocks from Union Square's plentiful dining and shopping venues, one half mile from the financial district and one mile from the Embarcadero. Curran Theater is adjacent to the hotel and the American Conservatory Theater is situated one block away. Guests arriving via San Francisco International Airport are 14 miles from the hotel.
Constructed in 1913, a 1990s renovation transformed the CLIFT Hotel's lobby into a surreal landscape of plaster walls, limestone floors and hand carved reception desk. A focal point of this renovation is a massive Louis XVI chair. In sharp contrast to the hotel's classic Italian Renaissance exterior, the CLIFT Hotel boasts an eclectic collection of modern furnishings and works by American and European artists. Guests receive preferential access to the hotel's legendary restaurant, Asia de Cuba. Silk curtains, mahogany and leather banquettes, hand blown Murano glass lamps, and a communal dining table fashioned from hand etched Venetian mirrors define this elegant setting. Appetizers include lobster pot stickers and coconut conch ceviche, and popular main dishes include roasted lime and garlic duck, and Hunan style fish stuffed with crab. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily. Legend claims that the wood from a single California redwood comprises the walls of the Redwood Room, the hotel's renowned bar. The 30 foot ceilings, digital art, subdued lighting, and leather and velvet furnishings attract celebrities and local trendsetters. Additional hotel amenities include fitness facilities and a business center that provides complimentary wireless Internet access.

The CLIFT Hotel has 363 guestrooms with sumptuous bedding that consists of down comforters and 400 thread count Egyptian cotton linens. Custom made white birch furnishings complement rich velvet, leather and silk fabrics. Guestroom d?cor also includes sleigh beds, Venetian glass lamps, large desks, minibars and high speed Internet access.
