This is where the kool kids hang out. Centrally located in downtown San Francisco, guests at the Clift benefit from having the best of the city at their doorstep, and hip bars and chic rooms inside. The hotel boasts the largest eclectic furniture collection in California which in turn attracts tasteful admirers and the subsequent eye candy. The bachelor party can hang in the lobby or move to one of their other bars to get their drink on before venturing into the night. Just don’t fall asleep on one of the chairs…

Venue Tip: 

The oversized chairs in the lobby may seem like a cheap gimmick – and they are – but they are also great conversation starter with the ladies who come to gawk.

The Good: 
Busy bars with flowing cocktails and potential future vacation friends. Solid location that makes getting around easy.
The Bad: 
Simple and somewhat sparse rooms may leave you wanting more for your dollars. Sometimes the Clift can be a little too cool for school.
