San Francisco's sleek art-filled tower

222 Rooms / 11 Suites

San Francisco does not experience four distinct seasons — it's pretty mild no matter when you visit. Likewise, Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco provides posh lodgings all year long. The glassy exterior of the tower looks sleek and modern, but the décor inside is more traditional, with wood-paneled walls, plush rugs and gold-accented furniture lending a classic feel to the spacious rooms. (Request a corner room to see more of the city through floor-to-ceiling windows.) The restaurant, Seasons, focuses on surf-and-turf classics with a wine list that draws liberally from vineyards in Sonoma and Napa counties.

Before setting off to visit the nearby San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, art aficionados should download the podcast guide to the hotel's impressive collection, which includes works by Matisse and Klee. But attractions outside the hotel are almost as convenient as those within. Besides SFMOMA, Union Square’s upscale shopping is a minute away, Yerba Buena Gardens are directly behind the hotel and the Powell Street cable car turntable is just down the street. If you want to sightsee by day and live in luxury by night, it’s hard to beat the Five-Star Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco in the City by the Bay.
