In a city of inimitable grace and style, the St Regis San Francisco hotel embodies extraordinary hospitality with modern-day sophistication. Opulent and yet entirely unstuffy, the hotel caters to modern jetsetters.


St. Regis San Francisco is set in a 40-story tower with 260 spacious guestrooms that are more akin to city pied-à-terries and in which everything from the TV to the drapes to the lights is operated with a touch-screen control panel.

In the pristine lobby of the St. Regis, elegant design features such as Italian travertine flooring and handsomely-striped Zebrano wood complement contemporary art pieces and crisp furnishings, open fireplace invites warmth into the modern but comfortable space. With art sprinkled throughout the hotel and the Museum of Modern Art a steps away, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and the Jewish Museum attract aficionados. This stay is an art-lovers dream.

The rooms are as well-appointed as the guests. Plush furnishings include comfortable beds, room decor is by famed Canadian design firm Yabu Pushelberg, and the palette sticks to neutral tones of cream and white. Baths contain oversize soaking tubs and separate showers with rainfall showers. What I really enjoyed was the great natural light, even if the views here are not as beautiful, as, say, the Loews Regency San Francisco (the reflagged former Mandarin Oriental San Francisco). In your room, you’ll find a daily newspaper.

Classic American cuisine at Grill; enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner atop white tablecloths. The mint green cushioned couches and chairs enhance their signature dish a grilled salmon bathed in a celery root and green garlic foam.

Lobby-lounge for afternoon tea or cocktails, where guests sip scotch and nibble on cheese plates. Their seasonal Art of Tea experience celebrates the Duchess of Bedford’s mid-afternoon tradition experience includes local fare from executive chef Franck Desplechin, with both sweet and savory options such as a huckleberry & blueberry pie shooter and an heirloom tomato waffle cone with scallops, basil pesto, and Italian speck. It all comes with teas sourced from the around the world. Tea is available daily in the lobby lounge from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Amenities include a 50-foot indoor infinity lap pool with jaw-dropping skyline views, fitness center with personal trainers and a yoga studio. The St. Regis also has its own luxury spa, Reméde, with 9,000 feet of treatment space, steam rooms and saunas.
