Expert Reviews
Once the most traditional of San Francisco's grand hotels, this historic building was remodeled in 2001 by avant-garde designers Philippe Starck and Ian Schraeger.
Young trendsetters now flock here for overpriced monochrome lavender streamlined rooms with often-minuscule bathrooms, glamorous atmosphere, and a heavy dose of attitude.
The entrance is so nondescript here, you could walk right past it without a hint of what's inside, and that's exactly how the clientle—a mix of hipsters, music-industry types, and celebrities—like it.
Some visitors have remarked on the thin walls and advise booking a room on an upper-level floor to avoid street noise.
