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.

... stretched Hummers ready to take us on a night tour of the city. With the music blaring and plenty of singing we headed off to check out the lights of the city. It was crystal clear and a fantastic way to get around. To finish off the night we had dinner at Applebee's right in Fishermans Wharf. A great meal with a good group of kids that had a fantastic day. Tomorrow it is a tour of the city and then off to our hosts in ...
... seen such portly seagulls in our lives!! These seagulls EAT our seagulls for breakfast....honestly! A very short ride later we were at Alcatraz, the home of some of the most viciously notorious criminals in history. We started on the cell house audio tour and after looking at a few cells, I have to say that I might have even sympathised with a few prisoners (well, as much as you can). Smaller than my ensuite at home ...
Craig has expressed the thoughts of all of us so well - thank you, Craig. Sylvia and I would like to put on record our gratitude to Mandy-Jane and Craig for all the advance planning they did; and to Craig for his route planning and navigation. Thanks too for being such great company - we've enjoyed the banter, the riding, the overnight stops, and the places we visited, but all of these experiences have been the richer ...
When we came back James was almost asleep. It was time to say goodbye to him because we needed to leave quite early the next day. We were so glad to be able to spend the entire weekend with James. He treated us like kings and we had a lot of fun thanks to his company. We hope he will make it to Chili for our wedding!
