Pretend you're a resident of one of the wealthiest residential neighborhoods in San Francisco at this understated, elegant 1903 Edwardian hotel. The quiet haven, which feels like a secluded B&B, serves as a celebrity hideaway for the likes of Ethan Hawke and Ashley Judd. Genteel furnishings and luxurious amenities grace the pale yellow-and-white rooms, some of which have sweeping city views. Morning newspapers, plush robes, slippers, complimentary town-car service
to downtown, the Financial District, and the Presidio in the morning, complimentary Wi-Fi and bikes, Nespresso coffee machines, and nightly turndown service are included. A free English-style breakfast is offered in a sunny, spacious room; wine, chocolate biscotti, and appetizers are set out each evening in a lovely area off the lobby. Guests have commented about the helpful and incredibly friendly staff.
