the room was lovely, the bed was comfy. However, the walls were so thin I could hear everything my neighbors were saying, and I had to ask to be moved to a room that had nobody staying next door. The common area on the 11th floor smelled like cigarette smoke. All of that being said, the room was lovely and...

Loved this place! Beautiful building, kind staff, great location. We were able to uber/lyft everywhere super easy and a lot of things are walkable from here. We found a great deal around cyber monday.

Marijuana in the hallways, Studio 54 with bouncers in the lobby, non-working minibar fridge and three phone calls to room service to procure all of the necessary things to make a cup of tea made this stay less than ideal. More party-central and less luxe.

While this hotel was nice, I have enjoyed my stay at other Morgan's hotels (The Mondrian in London and Miami) much more. I thought the quality of food, drinks, and stay weren't appropriately priced. In other words, I don't think I got the "bang for my buck". Like many others, I also didn't appreciate the surprise facilities fee.

I've stayed at 5 other boutique hotels in Union Square around the same price range, and this has been my favorite. Great service and early check in, the mirrors in the room were great!! Valet was friendly, room service was quick. Thank you!

The staff and the hotel were great! The Redwood Room was very good too, but there should be more help on the floor for drink service. The lady that helped us was very good, but we had to wait too long for service.

Have been staying at the Clift for the last 15 years or so, every January for a conference. It is almost exactly the same today as it was way back then. Which is to say, it is a very solid place to stay in SF, with a great bar in Redwood Room. Facilities could use an uplift perhaps.

Love the ubication. Nice hotel. Pretty lobby. Rooms were ok. Very small bathrooms. People in front desk very helpful. Didn't like the breakfast. Very expensive and service was really poor. $5 for a very little orange juice and $5 for coffee.

Fantastic large quiet room. Great vibe downstairs in lobby and bar area's. Would have given 5 stars but a $23 charge was added to my credit card after I checked out and its hard to get an answer what is was for. We had no extras apart from room and taxes.
