Mandarin Oriental, San Francisco Review

Two towers connected by glass-enclosed sky bridges compose the top 11 floors of one of San Francisco's tallest buildings, offering spectacular panoramas from every room; the windows open so you can hear that trademark San Francisco sound: the "ding ding" of the cable cars some 40 floors below (and rooms even include binoculars). In 2012, the hotel got a major overhaul, bringing in a brand-new, Asian-themed spa, as well as the locally-sourced Brasserie S&P restaurant and bar, which occupies the majority of the lobby. Renovated rooms showcase San Francisco's abundant light, with irridescent alcoves over the regal beds and muted color schemes. You can't beat the extra-deep tubs with city views, showerheads the size of plates, and the personalized stationery. Pamper yourself with luxurious Egyptian-cotton sheets, two kinds of robes (terry and waffle-weave), and cozy slippers. A complimentary tea-and-cookie tray delivered to your room upon your arrival is one among many illustrations of the hotel's commitment to service. Special-rate plans for families are available.
