The Clift

The Clift Royal Sonesta
San Francisco, CA

A down-to-the-studs makeover in 2020 brings contemporary finishes to 372 rooms and public spaces that belie the age of this century-old landmark two blocks from Union Square. The Redwood Room is a famous gathering place, named for the single tree that’s said to decorate the walls and bar. Home of the famous “Big Chair,” a group selfie-magnet in the lobby. Dog friendly, with a rooftop bee sanctuary and complimentary bicycles (first-come, first-served).
