The lobby is large with beautiful tri-color parquet floor reminiscent of the geometric drawings of M.C. Escher.
The hotel occupies the top five floors of a 1907 office building.
Rooms have all needed amenities with an updated twist of a 1930's theme, rafia wall coverings, subdued leopard print carpet, modern, tailored and elegant, highly styled with rich interiors accented with designer furniture, metallic finishes and distinctive contemporary art.
Highly regarded by many as the best San Francisco French restaurant, Fifth Floor Restaurant is quite literally on the fifth floor of the hotel. Oozing with elegance, the rich dining room is both hip and classic, with Zebra-print carpeting sets off an urban ambiance, Frette linens envelop waiting tables, and handsome framed paintings adorn the lush walls, creating an atmosphere that is rivaled only by the food Fifth Floor serves.
The Hotel is located on 4th and Market streets in downtown San Francisco. It is just 2 blocks south of Union Square, the city's principal shopping area.
