The former era of the Clift Hotel is gone and transformed into a trendy hotel. Not so sure the rooms are helping though.

An icon Morgan hotel designed by Phillipe Starck . The lobby is beautiful and so is the famous Redwood bar but the rooms and the actual hotel is needs a renovation . Great location near the shopping area and the theaters

One of my favorite San Francisco hotels. This modern and trendy hotel is in a fantastic location in downtown SF, near lots of shopping, nightlife and restaurants. The hotel is very trendy, modern, and houses one of San Francisco nicer (although pricey) lounges: The Redwood Room. Come here if you are looking for a unique, trendy and luxurious hotel stay on a visit to San Francisco.

Phillipe Starck designed hotel and not especially cheap. Fairly comfortable and reasonably central.

Really cool Art Deco hotel with fab design and attention to detail. The rooms tend to be a on the cozy side (aka a little small) unless you upgrade to a suite or something larger. The staff is great and the Redwood Room is a fun bar to grab a drink, but Fri. & Sat. nights tend to get pretty crazy busy, so get there early to avoid the line.

I have love hate relationship with the Clift. Love the lobby, open spaces, the giant chair and the bar in the back. Modern, sleek, the elevators make you feel like you're at a nightclub and you showed up underdressed.

Not a big fan of the rooms. The beds take up too much space in a small room, and the bathroom is small and cramped. Probably would not be my first choice if I was staying in ultra-luxe accommodations in the City again.

Very swanky hotel in the heart of the theater district. Walk to everything. Great lobby, Redwood Room for drinks, excellent restaurant. The rooms and suites are unique.

The public spaces at this property are exceptional and it is hard not to fall in love with the hotel bar, the Redwood Room. Service is adequate and the location isn't too far from Union Square. Unfortunately, the rooms themselves are pretty unimpressive. I found the white and muted purple color scheme to be a a bit drab. I also had major problems with my bill on check out (though this was clearly accidental).

I'd still say I "liked it" but unless you are getting a deal, better to opt for a less hip luxury property and drop in to see the Redwood Room.

If you want to be near Union Square, this boutique hotel has an edge. Contemporary-chic decor, cozy rooms and a downstairs bar that's always happening during happy hour and late night makes it a great choice - and you'll usually pay less than at the big high-rise chain hotels nearby. The big downside is expensive overnight parking - don't bring a car here, if you can avoid it.

Clift Hotel is beautiful in every way; the staff are professional, the building is well-maintained and the location is perfect. You can always see good-looking people walk in and out of the hotel, most likely thanks to the Redwood Room, the hotel's bar. It can get a bit pretentious in there, and I had a friend who would go there specifically to let older men buy her drinks (don't ask). The hotel, however, is a gem.

There are a lot of top bars and lounges located nearby, as well as restaurants from affordable to chic. Staying out all night can easily be done within a one-block radius of the hotel.

Wow, such a great time. Amazing location, gorgeous rooms, great mysterious vibe to the whole thing. Number one choice for hotels in Union Square. Boutique feel without the tiny boutique sized rooms.

While we love the Clift for its luxurious guest rooms and suites, our favorite part about this city center hotel is the hipper-than-hip bar, The Redwood Room. Strap on your stilettos and get gussied up, as this is THE place to be most nights of the week. The rooms at the Clift are minimalist chic, modern without a lot of extra fluff. Right in the middle of the theatre and nightlife district of San Francisco, the Clift is within walking distance to many of the top restaurants, bars, and clubs of downtown San Francisco.
