Fodor's Review

Designed by influential architect John Portman, who launched the trend of indoor-outdoor hotel environments, this 20-story gray concrete structure is the focal point of the Embarcadero Center, where more than 100 shops and restaurants cater to the Financial District. The spectacular 17-story atrium lobby, reportedly the largest hotel lobby in North America, is a marvel, with water elements, sprawling trees, a shimmering stream, a huge fountain, and the sleek Eclipse restaurant

and bar. All rooms have city or bay views; 134 come with bay-view balconies. Renovation has been completed 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 Ferry Building—a hub of activity, great shopping, excellent eateries, and a highly popular weekend farmers' market—is a short walk away.
