Housed in an impressive neoclassical building in the historic neighborhood of Nob Hill, The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco offers more Old World charm than any other five star hotel in the city.
With many of San Francisco’s Michelin star restaurants (it has a whopping 31) within walking distance and Union Square just next door, you couldn’t be better placed for exploring everything the Golden Gate City has to offer.
You can be guaranteed to do it in style, whether you opt for a vintage cable car from just outside the hotel’s grand white columned entrance, or the Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco’s house car service.
Don’t let the hotel’s 114-year-old facade fool you either. Inside you can expect all the modern comforts and a classic but contemporary interior – something The Ritz-Carlton does so well.
One of San Francisco’s most prestigious accommodations, the Presidential Suite, sits grandly on the hotel’s top floor. Shades of white and metropolitan grays are injected with personality via modern artworks and vibrant blue retro print cushions; a nod to the city’s legendary 60s scene.
An enormous lounge features three glass French doors leading out to a sprawling 1,200 sq ft furnished terrace overlooking the financial district.
A separate dining room with curved marble dining table also leads to the terrace. A wine fridge makes for a perfectly chilled glass of white either indoors or out, whilst Presidential Suite guests are also invited for an exclusive tasting at the hotel’s Jean-Charles Boisset tasting room.
It can also be expanded from one bedroom to two, taking it from 1,960 sq ft to 2,900 sq ft.
Take advantage of all-day dining at The Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge, but don’t miss Parallel 37 for an elevated take on all-American breakfast, created using local seasonal ingredients.
