San Francisco’s Clift Hotel – New & Improved!

To say the newly renovated CLIFT HOTEL in San Francisco has an edge would be putting it mildly.  An inspired fusion of old-world hotel elegance with distinctly contemporary energy and glamour, the nearly century-old Clift’s modern and daring sense of diversity perfectly captures the city’s spirit. Event City’s stop at the Clift was unfortunately a short one as we collect mounds of information on Hotels and Venues throughout the USA prior to our Live Launch.

The Clift, which is practically a stones throw from Union Square shopping and the legendary Nob Hill, Clift is perfectly located for sightseeing, shopping and socializing in the beautiful City by the Bay! Clift’s classic stone exterior opens onto a glowing purple entryway that prepares guests for the wonderland within. Designed by Philippe Starck, the soaring lobby contains one of the most eclectic furniture collections in all of California, with chairs from Ray and Charles Eames, a coffee table by Salvador Dali, a surreal stool by Renee Marguerite, and a sculpture custom made by William Sawaya. The centerpiece is a thirty-five-foot fireplace with a Bronze chimney sculpture by Gerard Garouste. The thrilling monumental scale and fantastical furnishings create a dream-like composition that is the cornerstone of Clift’s magic. Even prior to the Clift’s renovation, back in the day, it was the primary property for Rock’n’Roll stars to settle their gear and “chill out” while performing at one of the fine venues in the San Francisco area.

Let us know if you have stayed at the Clift and what you think about it by responding to this post. As always, we look forward to hearing from you.
