Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco, California – Hotel Review
One of the things I’ve come to truly enjoy in hotels are the lounges. While not all lounges are created equal, I’ve enjoyed exquisite lounges in far flung places, but possibly the best lounge I’ve visited was the Club Lounge at the Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco.
The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco is in a landmark building in the Nob Hill district. The neoclassical structure opened in 1909 housing offices of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company and later served as Cogswell College. Entering, one is struck by the contrast presented by the modern and inviting lobby and reception area.
Check-in formalities were minimal and I was soon shown to my room.
My Club One Bedroom Suite was comprised of a large living room and an adequately-sized bedroom, covering an unusually expansive 800 square feet (74 square meters). The décor was strong on elegant creams and yellows with some grayish-blue furnishings providing counterpoint.
A very large king-sized bed was flanked by two chests of drawers that served as nightstands. A television was perched on an additional chest of drawers at the far end of the room.
The living room had a large and very inviting sofa, two comfortable side chairs, and ample table space, making this a suitable area for an informal meeting or gathering.
