Built in 2009, the style of this luxury non-smoking hotel is modern but not trendy, with playful touches throughout. The décor invites closer inspection, then reveals artful details, such as the lobby's stunning parquet floors, reminiscent of the geometric drawings of M.C. Escher. The atmosphere recalls the Paris of the 1930s, where artists and intellectuals chatted at streetside cafés in an imaginative city full of creative energy, just like modern-day San Francisco. The hotel offers the following services free of charge: overnight shoeshine, companion goldfish (on request), full concierge service and nightly wine reception. This family-friendly city hotel is ideal for business travellers and holidaymakers alike and comprises a total of 260 rooms including 43 suites. Further facilities on offer to guests at this air-conditioned establishment include a lobby area with a 24-hour reception and check-out service, lift access, a bar and a restaurant. Business guests in particular will appreciate the Internet access, and room and laundry services are provided as well (both for an additional fee). There is parking available for those arriving by car (fees apply).
The hotel is located in the heart of central San Francisco. Hidden 5 floors above the hustle and bustle of the city and just steps away from the ever-busy SoMa district, this hotel is like a great painting waiting to be discovered by the discerning traveller. It lies just 100 m from the nightspots, tourist sites and shops of the city centre and 300 m from the nearest (tram) links to the public transport network. The hotel is 400 m from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, 800 m from AT&T Park, 1.6 km from the Ferry Building, 2.4 km from Fisherman's Wharf and 8 km from the Golden Gate Bridge.
All rooms come with a private bathroom with a shower/bathtub and a hairdryer, as well as a double or king-size bed. They are equipped with a direct dial telephone, satellite/cable TV, a radio, Internet access and an iHome docking station for an iPod. Furthermore, a safe, a mini fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, an ironing set and individually regulated air conditioning and heating are provided in all accommodation as standard.
Sports enthusiasts may enjoy a work-out in the gym, and it is possible to unwind with a spa treatment (for an additional fee). Massages are offered as well.
Readily apparent in the menu is Manrique's appreciation and passion for his native France, as well as acknowledgment of his culinary teachers. Signature dishes, like La Cruchade et Civet and Poule au Pot, have quickly become favourites. A continental breakfast is included for up to 2 guests per room, per night booked.
American Express, MasterCard and VISA are accepted at this hotel.
