Overview

The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco epitomizes the true meaning of luxury. This award-winning hotel is in a magnificent 1909 building complete with classical portico and columns, and recently completed a comprehensive $12.5 million USD refurbishment. Parallel 37 serves Californian and international cuisines while the Lobby Lounge makes a mean Bloody Mary to go with its oysters. Burn off some calories in the spectacular fitness center or enjoy a massage in the spa (fees apply).

Dining

Diners at The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco can enjoy Californian and international cuisines at the in-house Parallel 37. The restaurant is proud to welcome Chef Michael Rotondo from Chicago, where he most recently served as Executive Chef for Charlie Trotter’s. Parallel 37 seeks inspiration from our geographic latitude and food & wine that celebrate many cultural influences in the San Francisco Bay Area. Patrons can also choose from a selection of cocktails and spirits at The Lounge on site.

Rooms

As you would expect from a hotel of this caliber, the Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco guest rooms are of an exceptionally high standard. All 336 accommodations were upgraded during the multimillion dollar renovations, and the quality shines through, with featherbeds adorned by 400-thread-count Frette linens and down comforters, in a setting of refined elegance and furniture includes desks, chairs and ottomans. Sophisticated color schemes draw on an opulent palette of pale gold, cream and beige, echoing the classical French style, which informs the entire interior of the Ritz-Carlton, with its fine objets d'art that include marble Louis XVI urns and Waterford candelabras of museum quality. Rooms contain modern conveniences such as DVD and CD players, 32-inch high-definition LCD flat-panel televisions and wireless Internet access (fees may apply). Guests also enjoy the indulgent marble bathrooms with designer rain effect showerheads, luxuriant bathrobes, and complimentary Bulgari toiletries. These high standards are present throughout the Ritz-Carlton San Francisco, which pampers guests further with complimentary shoeshine services, bottled water, morning beverage and a choice of fine drinking and dining options.

Ritz Carlton San Francisco

Would recommend Tue, Jul 14, 2015
The Ritz Carlton in San Francisco is the most beautiful hotel in the city. It is close to Chinatown, and more importantly, you feel safe and secure in that big, gorgeous building that used to be a bank. We would definitely return there and our visit was spectacular.

The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco is well located near Union Square and offers 5 star accommodations at a fair price compared to other 5 star hotels. We just went for a quick getaway and the room was small, but clean and well appointed.

Great hotel. It's not a typical Ritz, not quite as luxurious as a typical Ritz but still great. My only complaint is the food at the bar. Very average and unfortunately for me I got food poisoning from the meal......Hotel took the charges off immediately, just not the best way to end a great trip. Location is great, so close to North Beach and to Union Square. We walked everywhere.

Great with a few recommendations......

Would recommend Fri, Nov 14, 2014
I love this hotel. Staff is terrific, always trying to accommodate. My only complaint is the rooms took awhile to clean. We'd come back and the room was still messy at 3:00pm. I did call about this and they said that in the future, I should ask for an early cleaning. The only other hiccup was the last evening there, I was hungry and ate a bite at the bar. A few hours later, I had food poisoning. I called later that morning and they immediately took the charges off my bill and checked their kitchen to remove any ingredients that may have been the cause. It can happen anywhere, just a shame it happened at the Ritz. Having said that, I'd still go back and stay here on my next visit. The location is so awesome, central to everything. The staff is terrific and always trying to please........

Dining

Momma's for breakfast is a must, long lines, but worth the wait....

Would recommend Sun, Aug 10, 2014
Stayed here for two nights in July. It was super convenient to the trolleys, shopping and the wharf. Going to other sites requires a car. Valet parking is really expensive (>$70 after tax). Room was very nice, really good size especially for SF.

Pricey but probably worth it

Would recommend Thu, Jul 17, 2014
Staying in San Francisco can be expensive anyway so we splurged on the Ritz. Staff was incredible but the room did leave something to be desired (like a major renovation to update carpets and wall paper).
