Over the Top, Romantic Lodging.

Ok so sometimes you want luxury, romance and fabulosity!

When this is your ultimate desire, expense is not an issue. Let’s say you just won the lottery, (maybe a small one, albeit you won!) it’s your honeymoon, or for you guys you’re “ready to pop the question.” Here is what you need to know in regard to romance and luxury in your stay with us to make that special couple of days memorable.

The Fairmont Hotel

Steeped in history and one of San Francisco’s treasured landmarks, when we are looking for luxury in a classic hotel, or a romantic getaway, we always think of the Fairmont first. Known for its fabulous views of the city, and luxurious rooms, The Fairmont is the epitome of under-stated glamour and comfort. Here you will find beautiful well-appointed rooms hinting at the past, while enjoying high quality linens, and updated fixtures and furnishings. With such luxurious surroundings you will feel pampered while enjoying all the modern conveniences of a newer hotel. Located at the top of Nob Hill in San Francisco, be sure to ask for a room higher up to enjoy the full view and grandeur of our “City By the Bay”! Do ask about the Tonga Room while you are staying there for great drinks, food, and an occasional rainfall just for fun!

The Palace Hotel

Another classic romantic getaway is The Palace Hotel on Market and Montgomery Streets. This massive yet intimate hotel has had kings and presidents stay here and has a breathtaking Old World atmosphere. The accommodations here feature the latest in modern luxury with traditional mahogany furnishings and updated fixtures. Your private bathroom becomes your personal sanctuary with The Palaces Signature Luxury Collection Bathroom Amenity Line and a plush terry cloth robe to relax in. Once you're refreshed and ready for the evening, please stop by and enjoy a signature cocktail in the classic Piped Piper Bar, voted as one of the "World's Seven Greatest Bars." Above the bar is an amazing 16-foot mural "The Pied Piper of Hamlin" which Maxfield Parrish was commissioned to paint at the hotel's second opening (3 years after the 1906 Earthquake).

The Westin St Francis Hotel

Renowned for its legendary service and world-class dining, The Westin St. Francis is another of our landmark San Francisco Hotels. Located directly across the street from Union Square, this magnificent hotel is legendary for its amenities and services. While staying at The St Francis be sure to visit their Health Club & Spa for a relaxing massage, pedicure or manicure.

Call your concierge, order a bottle of champagne, have a dozen or two roses brought up and put the Do Not Disturb sign on your door. You’ll have more romance than you could have ever dreamed of for you and that special someone.

Sir Francis Drake

A mixture of timeless elegance and high style, the Sir Francis Drake Hotel offers stylish and comfortable accommodations in the heart of Union Square, San Francisco. This 1928 historic Kimpton Hotel is a true masterpiece. If your happy button includes crystal chandeliers, gilded ceilings, and luxurious furnishings, well…you’ve reached Nirvana! Conveniently located in the heart of San Francisco’s downtown Union Square, you can shop til you drop at Saks, Neimans, Nordstroms, Bloomies as well as every designer boutique you can think of within walking distance. In the evening go no further than the Starlight Room. This clubs rich and gorgeous ambience goes beautifully with some of the best city views available. Dancing, martinis, wine, and people watching, this is San Francisco night life at it’s best! (What can I tell you I met my husband here on a girls night out!) And, oh yes, this is the Theatre District, as well as Art Gallery Heaven so get out there and explore!

Mark Hopkins

So I thought I’d top off our list with one of the most elegant, luxurious world class hotels of them all. The Historic Mark Hopkins Intercontinental Hotel. Built in 1926 the neoclassical rooms are extremely comfortable and plush and come with all the amenities you’d expect from a luxury Hotel. Expect sumptuous bathrooms, Frette bathrobes, a coffee maker, and mini bar and more. Their luxury suites are twice the size of most San Francisco apartments and cost close to a month’s rent (per night) as well so if you’re ready to break the bank, this is the hotel I’d do it in! By the way you must visit the Top of the Mark, (so romantic with magnificent views of our city), for some cocktails live music and dancing. It’s so fabulous dahling!
