Best Hotels in San Francisco
No. 10 St. Regis, San Francisco
Unlike its predecessor in NYC, this St. Regis is modern—Jean-Michel Frank modern, that is—in both style and amenities: master panels that control all the lights and shades; a fax/copier/printer in each room; “rainforest” and regular showerheads; plus the usual flat-screen TV’s, DVD/CD players, and Wi-Fi and Ethernet Internet access. The hotel and its 260 rooms are furnished in a symphony in beige and wood grain. (In the vestibule, the walls are covered in beige leather; behind the headboards, a beige faux shagreen.) Even in the standard rooms, the bathrooms feel monumental, like the Met’s Temple of Dendur; each has a separate tub and shower stall with bench.
