Expert reviews

Lonely Planet review:

“The only hotel in Pacific Heights, a stately 1903 apartment-hotel tucked between mansions, stands high on the ridgeline. It’s notable for its architecture, attentive service and chic rooms, with their elegantly austere decor.”

Fodors review:

“This posh Pacific Heights property gazes down upon the city and the bay. Rich textiles, heavy dark wooden furnishings, and golden fixtures hint at the tastes of those who select this hidden retreat.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in San Francisco.

Frommers review:

“If you’re looking to pretend you’re a real San Francisco resident—and a wealthy one at that—stay at this elegant yet understated hotel nestled among the multimillion dollar mansions of swanky Pacific Heights.”

Telegraph review:

“This Edwardian hilltop hideaway, surrounded by the dignified mansions of Pacific Heights, invites guests into the San Francisco high life. An old-fashioned sensibility – actual keys, staff dressed in waistcoats – meets luxurious modern comforts to create something classic, cosy and a cut above.”
