Hotel Majestic

1500 Sutter St., San Francisco, California, 94109, USA

Built in 1902 as a private residence, this five-story white Edwardian is the city's oldest continually operating hotel—movie-star sisters Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland once lived in these spacious rooms with poster beds and claw-foot tubs. The elegant lobby is a graceful haven of antique chandeliers, plush Victorian chairs, and hundreds of antiquarian French books. The hotel, which survived both of San Francisco's major 20th-century earthquakes, is legendary for its friendly ghost, the lovely Butterfly Lounge, and the largest collection of exotic butterflies in Northern California—on display at the café bar, where you can also order light fare.
