Great place to stay in

Hotel G was always my place to stay when in San Fran. However, gave The Clift a try and it hooked. It looks fantastic following the makeover. Same great location and nice, friendly staff. Huge rooms and nice, modern bathrooms. Decor was modern but comfortable at the same time. Loved the famous bar and breakfast in the restaurant was really enjoyable. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

This hotel is near everything! It's very clean, and the staff are super helpful. They have a beautiful Redwood Room with a bar - a true throw-back to the early 1920's in San Francisco. I highly recommend!

They remodeled the property and did a nice job. However, they eliminated the bath tub in all but the most expensive option. Usually, as a VIP with Expedia they upgrade me to a better option if available. The hotel was empty. I said I really wanted a tub and they did not upgrade me to a rooom with a tub. They said it would be $150 charge. If I knew such an expensive room would not have a tub, I would have stayed elsewhere. Very disappointing.
