A bridge over Kearny Street connects this hotel with Chinatown's Portmsouth Square, while the adjacent Financial District and North Beach are steps from the buzzing lobby's minimalist, feng shuied decor: a wall-size map of San Francisco orienting travelers to the local setting and oversized clocks providing the current time around the globe. The 750 restaurant serves Northern California cuisine with Asian-fusion overtones. The Flyte coffee and wine bar showcases Napa and
Sonoma wines, small food plates, Starbucks coffee, and complimentary iPads for guests to surf the Web. For a splurge, sample the Tru day spa, whose decadent treatments include the signature massage with oils and crèmes made on-site and the Pair's Polish, a couple's massage and body scrub in the tropical rain-forest room. The airy guest rooms are furnished with blond-wood Signature Serenity beds, Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and large work desks with ergonomic chairs.
