The Top San Francisco Landmark Hotel: The Ritz Carlton



-       This historic traditional hotel was transformed about 2 years ago with a $7 million renovation to the contemporary beautiful feel it has today. You will still see modern- yet-timeless decor  throughout the hotel such as the the traditional fixtures like the lobby fireplace and the Italian marble bathrooms.

-       You can’t beat the location of this property in San Francisco located on Nob Hill and is steps away from Union Square, the ferry building, the financial district and lots of shopping! This property is truly an extension of the city.

-       As you check in you’ll be greeted with warm towels and a fortune cookie from the original factory who created them based here in San Francisco. If you’re traveling with kids they have the cutest kids check in desk and kids area to make them feel welcomed.

-       The rooms are beautiful with contemporary navy blue and gray décor and simple pieces.  The Italian marble bathrooms are of course my favorite part. Its great for families because they have 1 bedroom suites with connecting rooms to either king or double beds as an option. I also highly recommend the Club Lounge rooms which are on the top floors and  provide you access from 6am-10pm to the luxury lounge. They have  4 food choices daily with coffee, wine, beer, and mixed drinks throughout the day (unlimited). Also loved the champagne tasting and caviar service around 5pm. It’s worth the little extra cost for the room to experience this daily. Its also the only luxury lounge in all of San Francisco.
