This stunning tribute to beauty and attentive, professional service offers a modern twist on that classic Ritz style with luxurious, fog-hued guest rooms that are geared to solid comforts, such as featherbeds outfitted with 300-thread-count, Egyptian-cotton Frette sheets, and down comforters. Club Level rooms include use of the Club Lounge, which has a dedicated concierge and several elaborate complimentary food presentations daily. Ionic columns grace the neoclassical facade; crystal chandeliers illuminate marble floors and walls in the lobby. The cuisine at Parallel 37 restaurant pays homage to the Bay Area's homegrown produce and its global influences. Afternoon tea in the Lobby Lounge, which overlooks the beautifully landscaped Terrace courtyard, is a San Francisco institution, but recent innovations include tea-infused cocktails and tea service from around the world.

Warm welcome from the staff which evaporated as soon as one was checked in. The room was spacious and well-appointed. Unfortunately it was not as well maintained as it should have been - e.g. a crack in the handbasin. The housekeeping service was particularly disappointing. Generally a lack of attention to detail. Meal in the Dining Room was memorable.
