In 2012 the Grand Hyatt San Francisco used a whopping $70 million to craft an innovative new look, including a lobby with floor-to-ceiling windows and gas fireplaces warming homey nooks, and the intimate OneUp restaurant which highlights—both architecturally and on the menu—an impressive wine list. Rooms feature warm autumnal tones, textured custom furniture like a plush suede desk chair, Chilewich window shades, original artwork, and teak beds. Windows can be blacked
out from your bed with a press of a button. Other technological advances include a "jack pack" that allows you to plug in your computer or DVD player, which then projects on the swiveling flat-screen. The key card connects to the thermostat and safe, letting you know if you left anything valuable upon checkout. Smallish bathrooms are decked out with glass-top vanities and porcelain sinks large enough to bathe a small child. Spring for the Grand Club, and you'll get a room on an upper floor and access to the all-day food and beverage service, computers, and concierge. Run up to the rooftop bar for 360-degree vistas of downtown and the bay.
