Hotel Mystic Review

Catering to hip young travelers wanting the boutique-hotel experience without the associated price tag, chef Charlie Palmer's Mystic Hotel serves up a healthy dose of art, cuisine, and style. The original hotel survived the 1906 earthquake and, like San Francisco itself, has retained its roots while reidentifying itself at every turn. Today guests enter the small whitewashed lobby and can take in the local art installations, the cage elevator, or the red carpet leading to the hotel's signature Burritt Room and Tavern. Standard rooms are compact, with tiled showers and vessel sinks, flat-screen TVs, and locally sourced honor bars (including jerky and gin crafted in San Francisco). Though the hotel has attempted to soundproof windows and bring in black-out curtains, city noise abounds, so request a higher floor. Suites include large soaking tubs and plenty of space to stay a while. Guests can order comfort food like burgers and fried chicken to be delivered from the restaurant.
