Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco
Definitely the Four Seasons
The Four Seasons boasts the only deep soaking tubs in SF. It also has the unique distinction of being a new luxury hotel in SF. (A St. Regis is coming) I was pleased to stay in a spacious new room and have a great bathroom full of L'Occitane products. While I liked the room I found them a bit plain, the Ritz has warmer rooms.
The public areas are awesome and the Martinis at the bar are otherworldly in quality and price. Room service is also excellent. Prices start at $339 without parking the Mandarin Oriental and Ritz have better deals and are in this league. If you like spa/fitness Sports Club LA can't be beat.
We just got back from the Four Seasons SF. The hotel was beautiful, clean, and well located. It is across the street from all the high fashion shopping and near all the big ones like Saks, Neimens, and Nodstroms. We are very picky hotel users- and will stay at this hotel again! Ask for a corner room, on a high floor so you can see the baseball field.
The hotel hall, lobby, restaurant and bar are superbe...very well furnished. Amazing. The rooms are typicall business rooms, but the bed is one of the most confortable I've ever experimented. In the bathroom, there are French soap, parfum and creams from "L'occitane", a brand from south of France, the land where I am comming from. Yeah, I know I am a bit chauvin, but aren't you ? Well, don't go there only for the soap ;)
I like very much the location, close to down town and from the business district.
The breafast in the restaurant is a great experience. Enjoy !
I just loved it here
I enjoyed my stay so much, we stayed on 2 days extra. The staff is excellent- attentive without being cloying, totally professional. We were there during the blackout last week and went back just went there was an "orange alert". Both times, the staff reactions were immediate, seamless, perfect. The food was excellent and location is as well (for the day- right by Union Square and Chinatown, etc.). It was fun to walk around. At night, come on...what kind of people don't take cabs anyway?
California is not NY and the top restaurants are spread throughout the city anyway. However, I walked our dog outside at night (and once at 4:30 am) and had zero problems. There are so many crazies in SF, but they are in their own world. And they are EVERYWHERE. Its a citywide problem. Without reserve, its a fabulous hotel and I will never stay elsewhere again.
Great Hotel, Avoid the Spa
I have stayed at the Four Seasons in SF twice, once in April and once in October. I agree wtih the previous person, the views and location are not great. I think the best view are saved for the residences on the 18-42 floors.
Despite that, the service is great!! The staff is polite and tries to accomodate all of your needs. I would stay away from the Spa. The service there is TERRIBLE and they do not care that their service is terrible. Even when managment of the spa is made aware, they seem pretty non chalant about it.
Stay at the hotel and enjoy the food, which is OUTSTANDING!!
A lovely hotel in a rotten location
Stayed here on a quick overnight to San Francisco recently.
Inside, the hotel is gorgeous, the service great. The room was what you would expect from a Four Seasons and the bed was so very very comfortable that I was a little late for my meeting.
But somebody made a mistake when then planted this hotel in the middle of Market St. The neighborhood at night is empty/scary. Homeless, urban crazies. Not to the point where you can't go outside, but certainly to the point where you don't want to. Of course, there are no restaurants, shops, nightclubs, concert halls or theaters within walking distance, so you don't really need to go outside. But you end up feeling a little trapped in the hotel which is silly when one is in the middle of a major US city.
I suspect that the developers were counting on the Internet boom to bring the neighborhood alive. Oooops.
Plus, as has been pointed out, for the price (and the name) you think you'd be getting killer views of the city, but the hotel is located basically at the bottom of the south side of Nob Hill, and most of the rooms are on the lower floors, so there are really none of the views for which SF is famous. I knew this going in, but I expect that there are a lot of disappointed guests.
All in all, there are certainly better choices in SF for this price.
What a lovely night we had at the Four Seasons in San Fran. Other reviews complain about the parking and homeless, neither is an issue.
Parking is close by across the street and the neighborhood appeared safe. When we returned home after a late night at Fog City Diner and Pier 51, the door man greeted us at the cab and said, "Welcome Home." I got a kick out of that. The room was everything you would expect from 4 seasons. The bathroom was my favorite part and I liked the bathrobes better than any other hotels I've seen. (Amazing Lemon verbena soap too.) We enjoyed a morning run along the Enbarcadero and then a visit to the health club attached to the hotel. The art throught the hotel was incredible and everyone was so very nice. I hated to leave and am eager to return.
Four Seasons was the best
Stayed at the Four Seasons for three nights and loved it! Service was excellent, the gym was the largest ever and the people were friendly and eager to please!
A must stay if you are visiting San Fran.
This is an exquisite hotel!
This hotel is absolutley wonderful. I have traveled around the world, and this is one of my favorites. The hotel is extremlely private, secure, beautiful, quiet, luxurious, and all the other things you look for in a world-class hotel. I recommend this hotel to everyone I know, try to splure on a suite- the executive suites are a good deal, and absolutley to die for! If you can afford it- go for this one.
Greatest SF Hotel!
After reading several reviews citing problems, I was concerned but determined to try the hotel. My king suite was the nicest room I have ever stayed in. The staff is top notch and extremely accomodating with late check-out. Rooms are immaculate and large. Fitness club is free and possibly the best I have ever seen. It is very safe with a 5th floor lobby requiring an elevator change to insure scrutiny of guests. Concierge and bell desk took care of everything I asked for, including reservations at top notch restaurants on short notice. Location is perfect for shopping, walking, and seeing SF without getting trampled. I felt I was treated better here than at the Ritz in Paris. Special rates can be obtained. Much better than the Clift House.

Monterey was nice and quiet in comparison. The drive was an easy 90 minutes or so south of San Fran with garlic stands on the side of the highway. Apparently that area of California grows a lot of garlic and cherries. Once in Monterey, visited the fisherman's wharf there and sampled clam chowder, grabbing dinner from the winning chowder restaurant.
... late at night after suffering our first (and only, for this trip) flat tire on the trailer. The tire shop told us that these small tires only have a shelf life of about two years, even unused. Sure enough, it had been about two years since our last trip, and they had been sitting in our garage for that whole time. Anyway, we popped a tire about three miles from the campground. I called AAA but they could not find us. Luckily, a friendly truck driver stopped and helped me ...

Morro Bay was a bit like middle class suburbia for the retired mixed with Littlehampton.
We were a bit disappointed.
But on the plus side it did have a launderette - hurray! And the campground had hot if rather smelly showers.
And it had a great little hairdressers - our second haircut since we left. Boy did we need it. They even let us charge our MacBooks while we had a haircut - things were getting ...
... our meal we decided to head back to our lodgings, saving the rest of our discovery for the next day. Rumours spoke of famous beaches and various other landmarks, but the night had grown cold and a man of my years desires only sleep after a hearty meal. We made our way back to the hostel and I left it to Anna 'the master of planning' to organise our schedule for the next day.
We awoke early and went downstairs for a healthy breakfast of pancakes, bacon and ...
