Hyatt Regency San Francisco

5 Embarcadero Center, San Francisco, California, 94111, United States

The spectacular 17-story atrium lobby, reportedly the largest hotel lobby in North America, is a marvel, with sprawling trees, a shimmering stream, a huge fountain, and the sleek Eclipse restaurant and bar, while all the businesslike rooms have city or bay views; 134 come with bay-view balconies. Renovations were in the works at press time, adding to recent refreshments of the suites on the top two floors and the breathtaking Regency Club (formerly the rotating lounge bar, Equinox), which has a staggering 360-degree view of the city and bay. The gray concrete structure is the focal point of the Embarcadero Center, where more than 100 shops and restaurants cater to the Financial District, while the Ferry Building—a hub of activity, great shopping, excellent eateries, and a highly popular weekend farmers' market—is a short walk away.
