About The Clift Royal Sonesta

Bringing a unique blend of surreal design and boutique luxury to San Francisco, The Clift Royal Sonesta is both elegant and contemporary, the oversized furniture, imaginative lighting and warm colours create an atmosphere of fun and fantasy as you enter the lobby. Here, a table by Salvador Dali and a chair by Renee Marguerite set the tone for your stay. Located in the heart of downtown means there are countless bars and restaurants on your doorstep and it is just a couple of blocks to the shops of Union Square. The hotel has a gym, but if you prefer your exercise on the hills of San Francisco Clift also offers complimentary bikes to guests on a first-come-first-served basis. The pride of The Clift Royal Sonesta is the Redwood Room, a stylish and sophisticated bar where red velvet sofas and wood panelled walls surround the famous bar itself, supposedly hewn from a single redwood tree trunk. Rooms at The Clift Royal Sonesta are light and modern, inspired by the colours of San Francisco.
