SAN FRANCISCO HOTEL REVIEW:
With the dark wood paneling of a former bank building, the Clift Hotel's Redwood Room is the perfect place to grab an after-work drink (or throw an all-out birthday bash). The video portraits on the walls with faces that slowly blink or turn from side to side are reminiscent of the Haunted Mansion. As part of Ian Schrager's famed hotel group and more recently a pinnacle of the Morgans Hotel Group, the Clift Hotel is a notable venue for its boutique rustic luxury. Some may say that the lobby is too dark, but we say all the better for those of us LA vampires.
Built in 1913 and immediately catapulted forward by the Morgans team, the Clift Hotel is on the cutting edge of lifestyle design. As one of the first epicenters for locals as well as tourists, the Clift Hotel has powered many a martini-fueled meeting or champagne birthday (like our own).

We love fast and hot, blurred and intemperate. We love dub in the street, gelato in North Beach, sparkling Mumm rosé on a gorgeous afternoon. We love Soba, Noba, coffee at the Ferry Building, and morning pastries at Tartine. A city to drive it like you stole it, wear it like you made it, DJ til you're famous, and start a corporation - while the East Bay sleeps.
