When you stay at Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco, every room is luxurious — but the 47 suites are the height of sophistication, space and comfort. Obviously, suites cost more: They start at $850 per night, but can be priced as high as $9,000 for the Presidential.
Suites come in eight variations: one bedroom, specialty one bedroom, premier one bedroom, deluxe one bedroom, superior one bedroom, presidential, executive and superior executive. Each features additional spaces and furnishings not found in regular guest rooms.
The one-bedroom suite — which can turn into a two- or three-bedroom, if you’d like connecting rooms — has lavish furnishings, like glass-topped, gold-leaf coffee tables, ebony sitting chairs, eucalyptus lounge chairs and matching ottomans. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide sweeping views of downtown and the white-glass light fixtures cast a warm, soft glow on the room. The suite has two flat-screen televisions, plus a fax machine, two CD players, a DVD player and an iHome alarm clock. The spacious bedroom is separated from the living room by a set of doors, and there’s a large dressing area complete with walk-in closet — perfect for storing all your new purchases from the inevitable shopping trip to Union Square.
The specialty one-bedroom suites, located on the 16th and 17th floors, have many of the same amenities, but also offer a formal entry hall with a closet, a separate guest powder room and a dining area with its own pantry. From these floors, you will enjoy panoramic views of the Yerba Buena Gardens and the San Francisco Bay to the south. The bathroom is especially large in this suite, with a double marble vanity, deep-soaking tub for two and soundproof windows that have sliding privacy screen panels.
Business travelers might want to opt for one of the lavish superior executive suites, located on floors 12 to 17. These have a living room with a double sofa bed, a formal entry hall with closet and a separate working area with a large desk, brown leather desk chairs and Artemide Italian desk lamps. You’ll also get a great glimpse of the San Francisco skyline and Yerba Buena Gardens.
Regardless of which suite you choose, the beds are all dressed in prestige linens and pillow-top mattresses with oversized down pillows sitting on top.
