    Very good

    The location of the hotel was very good and the room was comfortable.

    I would have been better if the price had included breakfast and the hotel had a free wifiservive for guests, or at least provide an internet room free of charge.

    Very good

    Excellent location, modest up-to-budget but stylish design.

    Terrible noise from the street. Only one layer of glass on a window leaves gaps. I would strongly recommend to the hotel to put double glass windows!! NIghtmare!!

    Superb

    The staff were absolutely wonderful and so warm and friendly during my stay!

    I understand that this hotel is older but my first room, 510, had extremely thin walls. I would rather not hear every giggle, chitter chatter or otherwise going on in the room next door at 1:30 am.

    We loved the room we had. We were upgraded because we were staying for 10 days. A special thank you to Tod! Who arranged it for us. He was an excellent person for the Clift to have on their staff!

    Good

    we found a live flea in the bed, the hotel switched our room and ended up downgrading our room to a lower floor level. Next day, woke up w/ a flea bite on my leg. the hotel manager didn't care to follow up or offer any compensation.

    The price is way to high for the room size and bathroom size. And the walls are to thin we had complaints about our noise.

    Fabulous

    Location was great , Design/ambiance was pleasant and simple but refined .

    I think it was way over rate at over USD 700 a night !

    Fabulous

    Facilities are very well decorated with a great taste. Even small the room is still comfortable, exactly as purposed. Staff is gentle and has a great location. Great choice in general.

    I would sugest the hotel to update its TV chanels to include more pay-per-view and foreign channels. Revise in room dining menu. Please review breakfast prices...too high.

    Superb

    A very original approach to a hotel chain. It moved away from the stereo typical Hotel chain, the deco was warm and friendly, not overpowering but with a hint of elegance. The doormen were stylist and broke away from the "standard" which I feel was the approach of the Clift throughout. The rooms were elegant and very comfortable and I felt at ease without the feeling that the room was mine and not just a stop gap.

    Staff were very friendly / the location was superb / the decor elegant without being pretencious.

    Last time we stayed here we were there for 10 days! This time unfortunately just an overnight. However it is our favorite San Francisco hotel and we will definitely return again. Service starts at the doorstep...we have never encountered such a helpful number of people greeting one and getting one in to the hotel. The reception is extremely efficient and helpful. Love the lobby! The rooms are great as are all the public areas. Its location, just 2 blocks from Union Square could not be better.

    Fabulous

    Magnificent, historic bar and restaurant combine with friendly service in this boutique hotel located close to Union Square and theaters.

    Some furniture is cheap and tasteless e.g. gaudy plastic nightstands and others have limited functionality.
