The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco

A regal Nob Hill knockout
Even the most blasé traveler would have to be impressed by this stately mansion atop Nob Hill. Built in 1909 as the headquarters of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco has maintained its palatial polish, preserving its neoclassical façade while offering a renovated modern-classic haven inside.

The Lounge is a great place to take in the skyline while enjoying handcrafted cocktails inspired by the unique neighborhoods of San Francisco, paired with a coastal California menu, and don't miss the classic American breakfasts at Parallel 37.

Throughout the Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco, the legendary service is gracious, whether you arrive by town car or by hopping off the cable car outside.
