The Clift Hotel
495 Geary Street, San Francisco

There’s absolutely nothing kitschy about The Clift. Once the Four Seasons, this upscale hotel with a minimalist lobby is beautiful to say the least. Owned by former Studio 54 honcho Ian Schrader, the hotel is the choice for many celebrities, and musicians alike. The Clift is perhaps best known for its popular lounge, the Redwood Room, which is a celebrity in itself. Upon first glance, the Redwood Room is a sight. Dark Cherry walls create an immediate warmth to the otherwise vacuous room. What appear to be portraits lining the walls are actually LCD screens broadcasting slowly moving images that tell a series of stories.

Originally built in 1915, the Clift has well appointed rooms are a hallmark of The Clift, with child amenities such as Nintendo, cookies and milk and prepubescent bath robes.
