U.S. News Review

This modern masterpiece of a hotel in San Francisco's SoMa neighborhood features 306 guest rooms and suites, all equipped with rainforest showers, minibars and several flat-screen TVs (including one in the bathroom). Accommodations here are exceptionally roomy, but if you want to spread out, book a Metropolitan Suite, which boasts about 1,000 square feet of space. Travelers rave about the digs here, but what they especially enjoy about this St. Regis property is its location (near a number of the city's most popular attractions), its modern decor and its friendly service staff. The contemporary American cuisine served at Ame Restaurant also sits well with guests, and if you're planning a weekend stay, make reservations for Sunday brunch at Vitrine Restaurant, open daily for breakfast and lunch. Room rates here are high, but visitors believe the experience is worth the lofty price. And If you're a Starwood Preferred Guest loyalty club member, you can offset your bill by using Starpoints.

Critic Reviews


“In contrast to San Francisco's grand old dames, this is luxury, 21st-century style. The St. Regis was built from the ground up in 2005, and its modern glass exterior and contemporary art collection make the hotel seem like an extension of its artsy neighbors, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of the African Diaspora.”

Travel + Leisure

“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.”
Award: Travel + Leisure 500 World's Best Hotels 2015


“Since opening in 2005, The St. Regis San Francisco has been refining the concept of luxury, retaining the detail-oriented service focus, but removing any hints of stodginess. ”
Award: Forbes Travel Guide Five Star Awards 2014


“The rooms are as well-appointed as the guests. Plush furnishings include comfortable beds and deep soaking tubs to comfort harried travelers.”
