Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco Review
A preferred destination for travel-industry honchos, movie stars, and visitors alike, this hotel—a stunning tribute to beauty and attentive, professional service—completed a $12.5-million renovation to offer a modern twist to that classic Ritz style. Ionic columns grace the neoclassical facade; crystal chandeliers illuminate marble floors and walls in the lobby. Guest rooms provide flat-screen TVs, featherbeds 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. A new chef rules the roost at Parallel 37 restaurant, which pays homage both to locally grown produce and global influences on the Bay Area. Afternoon tea service in the Lobby Lounge, which overlooks the beautifully landscaped Terrace courtyard, is a San Francisco institution, but now offers new twists like tea service from around the world and tea-infused cocktails.
