Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco

San Francisco's sleek art-filled tower
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, and the guest rooms and suites feature shades of blue with cool steel tones that complement the brass and gold accents to create a modern oasis above the vibrant city.

The warm, oak-filled MKT Restaurant – Bar 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.

If you want to sightsee by day and live in luxury by night, it’s hard to beat the Four-Star hotel in the City by the Bay.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • You’re steps from some of the city’s best cultural attractions. Union Square shopping is one block away. Head to Chinatown for some great dim sum. The hotel is also a five-minute drive to the gourmet food at the Ferry Building and a host of museums — our favorite is the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
  • We love the views at the San Francisco hotel. For the best vistas, ask for a corner room on the 14th floor or higher. Gaze out at the city’s grand buildings and the glistening blue bay while you sit on the padded window seat — a perfect spot to enjoy your breakfast or some wine at sunset.
  • Enjoy complimentary access to Equinox Sports Club, replete with treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bikes and more than 100 fitness classes, including yoga, kickboxing and spinning. There’s also a lap pool, boxing studio, basketball court and 25-yard indoor pool.
  • The family-friendly hotel welcomes young guests with milk and cookies, child-sized bathrobes and just-for-kids toiletries. Four Seasons also arranges babysitting and offers coloring books, board games and a children’s DVD library.
  • San Francisco is a culinary destination, but we love that you don’t have to leave the Four-Star hotel to enjoy excellent cuisine. MKT Restaurant – Bar is open on the fifth floor for breakfast, lunch and dinner, serving simple yet elegant California-inspired fare with fresh, local ingredients.
Things to Know
  • While the hotel’s address is listed on Market Street, you need to drive up to the entrance at 217 Stevenson Street for the valet.
  • The luxury hotel doesn’t have its own onsite gym, but you gain entry to the next-door Equinox Sports Club, a big perk considering the complex’s size and range of offerings. There’s cardio and weight-lifting equipment and more than 100 fitness classes, in addition to a full-service spa.
  • Request a childproofed room if you’re traveling with the family.
The Rooms
  • The outstanding vistas are the focal point in the spacious, light-filled rooms.
  • Deep sleep is almost guaranteed in the comfortable beds topped with a down duvet and down pillows. And after a night of restful shut-eye, you can get your morning caffeine fix with your in-room Nespresso machine. 
  • Business travelers won’t mind doing work on the large desk facing the floor-to-ceiling windows. When you need a break, watch something on the flat-screen HDTV equipped with casting and DVR capabilities. 
  • The roomy marble bathrooms have separate showers and inviting deep-soaking tubs. You’ll also find L'Occitane toiletries in fresh scents like lemon verbena.
  • For the most decadent option, reserve one of the Presidential Suites. The 16th- and 17th-floor spaces boast a living room, dining area with its own pantry, a wine refrigerator stocked with 30 bottles handpicked by the hotel’s sommelier and a master bathroom with a tub for two next to the oversized windows.
Nearby Attractions
  • Union Square is a block away and has outposts from luxe icons, including Barneys, Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Tiffany & Co., and the city’s landmark department store, Gump’s.
  • To sample gourmet goodies, head down Market Street to the Ferry Building (a five-minute drive from the hotel), where you can sip a syrah or indulge in oolong tea ice cream. There’s plenty of fresh produce, locally fed beef, fresh fish, pastries and gelato, so be sure to take your appetite with you.
  • The Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Museum of the African Diaspora are visible from the hotel itself, and the Museum of Craft and Folk Art, the Cartoon Art Museum, SF Camerawork and a hands-on children’s museum called Zeum are all within two blocks.
  • Soak up San Francisco history in Chinatown (the largest outside of Asia) and Little Italy (the adjacent North Beach neighborhood). If you're planning to head to Chinatown, stick to Stockton Street to avoid tourist traps and get real-deal dim sum and Vietnamese sandwiches.
