Not all hotel club levels are the same.
The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco Club Level was named “Best in America” by Andrew Harper’s Hideaway Report. It offers four tantalizing food presentations throughout the day – breakfast, light snacks, hors d’oeuvres and evening desserts.
Ritz-Carlton San Francisco Club Level
A Club Level room was our base for a San Francisco visit focused on biking, sailing and eating.
And, yes, eating is a legitimate activity!
We loved the lox and big silver bowls of fresh strawberries and blackberries for breakfast.
In the evening, we sipped Prosecco and sometimes port while reading newspapers by the wood-burning fireplace.
The hotel’s Parallel 37 restaurant also gets rave reviews for its fresh oysters and Kobe beef.
Ritz-Carltons rarely disappoint.
And you’d be hard-pressed to find fault with this 5-star San Francisco hotel and its magnificent suites.
Originally built for a life insurance company in 1909, the structure’s white neo-classical architecture is eye-catching.
Lions’ heads, winged hourglasses and 17 Ionic columns adorn the exterior. Inside, crystal chandeliers and 18th and 19th century artworks grace the elegant lobby.
Among the 336 guestrooms, the top two floors are reserved for Club Level guests. And here you step into pure luxury and pampering.
For extra comfort, stay in a spacious 900 to 1,100 sq.ft. junior or one-bedroom Club Level suite.
The calming décor is inspired by the city’s notorious fog, so the color scheme reflects lots of “steely blues” and grey. And the feather beds are divinely comfy, with 400 thread count sheets.
One of the best hotels in San Francisco
The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco enjoys an enviable Nob Hill location, close to Chinatown and Union Square shopping.
A complimentary city car is available to drop you off and pick you up from local restaurants – if you feel the need to venture out.
