Very nice, ultra modern hotel. Beds are extremely comfortable. Bar is very trendy, we spent an hour watching the moving faces on the pictures on the walls, fascinating! Never seen anything like it! Great locatiion, just off Union Sq. Lots of bars and restaurants close by.
Only complaint I could have would be bathrooms are very, very small! But apart from that couldn't fault the hotel! I agree with previous reviews that the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.
I would like to say a special thank you to Erica, The Concierge. I had sent a suitcase in advance to Canada full of skiing clothes for the next part of our holiday and I had received a message to say that unless my passport and hotel accommodation was sent it could not clear customs, we were arriving the next day in Vancouver! Extremely stressed out by this! They needed it faxed or emailed, she did both just to be sure!!!! I cannot thank her enough as this would have been a disaster, skiing for 12 nights without ski clothes wouldn't have worked! She handled it very quickly, efficiently and in my opinion above and beyond! Would highly recommend this hotel!!!!!

Great location. With Union Square and Nob Hill within walking distance. The ambience is atmospheric and warm, due to the dark lighting and open fire in reception.
The staff are both friendly and polite; and more than happy to help with directions for attractions or restaurant recommendations.
The rooms are the complete opposite - in that the decoc is much more neutral, which i preferred. And the bed was amazing!
Cool and contemporary with an old skool twist.

Very nice hotel as far as ambiance is concerned. Super comfortable beds. Everyone from the doorman to the checkout help were friendly. Super convenient location to Union square and bart. I have had nights there that can be noisy with the 20 something crowd late at night related to the popular bar at the cleft, but if you upgrade it is no problem.Thanks to management after a less than quiet night a couple years ago we were treated to a complimentary upgrade with this stay. We stayed in a suite and had a fabulous/quiet night's sleep. Very generous upgrade considering circumstances, thank you Clift. We will be back.

Room Tip: get an upgrade, well worth the money

The Clift is a lovely, hip hotel. The decorations and art in the lobby/bar really add to the ambiance. The service was superb with a doorman waiting for your exit and return, friendly front desk and housekeeping staff and a quick response to any issue or request.

Very conveniently located, just up from Union Sq, quick access to BART train and city public transport. We stayed for 4 nights in a loft king room on the tenth floor. The room was very spacious with a large and very comfortable king-sized bed and powerful shower (keep the peppermint shampoo away from your eyes...). The windows only have single glazing so street noise can occasionally be disturbing - ask for a room high up and perhaps facing away from Geary St. We found all the staff attentive and friendly. One slight criticism: The hotel does charge extra (or offers special packages) for Internet access. Other hotels have realised this is a bit like charging for water or electricity use. Despite this, we would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: upper floors, facing away from Geary St should help avoid too much street noise. Loft King room was very big.
