About
Description
The Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel is a century-old timeless gem, combining contemporary architecture and glamour with old-world elegance and modern comfort. A 6-minute walk from Union Square and 4 minutes from the More nearest Muni Metro station, the hotel draws inspiration from the city and boasts a decidedly artful and local décor. Designed by famed interior designer Philippe Starck, The Clift features one of the most eclectic furniture collections in California and includes chairs from Ray and Charles Eames, furniture by Salvador Dalí, and a surreal stool inspired by René Magritte and designed by Roberto Matta. The modern rooms, ranging from standard king guest rooms to private apartments, showcase a soothing palette of ivory and gray accented by strategic pops of lavender and orange – an ode to a striking California sunset. Hotel amenities include complimentary bicycles, a fitness center and three unique food and beverage experiences, including the art deco Redwood Room. Less
