The Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel is an iconic property whose history dates back more than a century, so you’ll feel the classic hotelier spirit of the early 20th century at every turn. Modern, refined elegance radiates throughout, accented with an artful and local décor. The gracious lobby sets the tone: contemporary and dramatic and boasts a stunning furniture collection including chairs from Ray and Charles Eames, furniture by Salvador Dalí, and a surreal stool inspired by René Magritte and designed by Roberto Matta.

Business travelers will love our location, perfectly set in Union Square and close to the Financial District. Some of the nation’s top internet start-ups such as Dropbox, Pinterest, Twitter, and Yelp are nearby. If you have time on your hands to explore after meetings—or if you’re visiting San Francisco to take its cultural and scenic attractions—Fishermen’s Wharf, Lombard Street, the Ferry Building, and Embarcadero are within easy reach. Other attractions—Golden Gate Park with its vast green spaces and many museums, and Chinatown, one of the country’s largest—are accessible by subway. Or you can board a ferry to the prison-island of Alcatraz or the pretty bayside artist retreat of Sausalito.

The Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel offers 372 beautifully-crafted guest rooms, from studio accommodations to private apartments that resemble a turn-of-the-century home with a modern twist. Ample amenities, including access to the fitness center and complimentary bicycles, make for the most comfortable stay. Relax with a cocktail in the English club-style Living Room. Enjoy our nightlife or your own social event in the Velvet Room. And experience unique food and drink experiences in the legendary Redwood Room, long a fixture of San Francisco’s social scene. Planning a meeting in the City by the Bay? We have 12,524 square feet of flexible event space to serve your group, no matter the size.

We can’t wait for you to experience The Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel, new to Sonesta but forever an icon!
