Expert Reviews
Afar Magazine

Lonely Planet
While the Clift is deliciously notorious for its penthouse parties, tough design critics might find that some rooms are too cramped for sleigh beds, and some cabinets might've been bought at IKEA.
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.
