From the editors of Elite MeetingsWhen it reopened in 2001, The Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel redefined the standard for luxury hotels in San Francisco. A magnet for leading-edge travelers ever since, the century-old hotel hosts groups in a setting as glamorous as it is modern. While the Clift bears the hallmarks of traditional elegance in its service and amenities, it also serves as an icon of the avant-garde.
Designer Philippe Starck’s daring juxtapositions of art and furnishings inspire not only groups to think outside the box, but also everyone who visits the lobby, bar, restaurant, and 372 guest rooms. Two boardrooms and the Rita, Ava, and Sophia meeting spaces guarantee memorable corporate events and business affairs for up to 350. Special events that call for a unique touch can set up in the Spanish Suite — the former home of original hotel owner Frederick Clift — which features historical details, lush furnishings, and terraces with panoramic views of the city.
After their business obligations are complete, attendees retreat to the laid-back, comfortable Living Room to read and people-watch or head to the chic Redwood Room to enjoy its digital artwork, gourmet snacks, and etched glass bar. For those who prefer to go out on the town, the Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel is ideally located near Union Square and the Financial District, giving guests easy access to all the attractions, restaurants, shops, and nightlife that San Francisco has to offer.
