When they were reviving this art deco masterpiece, the architects ably met the challenge of restoring the 1929 building without disturbing its original elements, like mosaic tiling and stained-glassed windows. The seven-floor hotel has spacious and sexy rooms, each filled with chaise longues, cowhide rugs, and big fluffy beds. The top-floor terrace offers an outdoor fireplace, wooden recliners, and amazing city views, including the enormous San Francisco Basilica directly
across the street. There's a top-notch spot for food and drinks—Aldo's Vinoteca y Restorán—on-site.
