Overview

Chocolate Factory-turned hotel with tricked-out, loftlike digs on historic Ghirardelli Square.

The Look

Contemporary loftlike interiors blend exposed interior brick walls, steel staircases and cast iron–trimmed floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the bay, with abstract branch and tree sculptures, nature paintings and modern furnishings. Outside, stairwells lead to card-accessible guest entrances, and on to restaurants and chocolate and artisanal shops.

Bed and Bath

Named after Ghiradelli Square’s original cocoa, chocolate and mustard box factories, the 53 suites have intricate layouts. Bedrooms are calm quarters with smoky pine floors and tan carpets, Frette linens and signature Ghiradelli pillow chocolates provided at turndown. There are rainfall showers in the marble-and-stone bathrooms, and open-plan living rooms have gas fireplaces and hand-grooved maple floors that lead to kitchens equipped with refrigerators, wine coolers, built-in stovetops and dark wood tables that seat up to six.

Beyond

At night, Ghirardelli’s 125-foot sign shines, along with the flickering Alcatraz lighthouse out in the bay. Catch the view on cooler afternoons with a glass of wine next to the firepit or beaneath a heated carillon on the checkerboard-speckled Mustard Terrace. As the morning fog rolls in, a buffet of pastries, fruit and yogurt, breakfast burritos, and fresh orange and grapefruit juice is served in a lounge on the first floor, where a 24-hour fitness center opened in summer 2012.

Awesome

What a great place. It’s away from the hustle and bustle of downtown but close enough to get there easily. Rooms are spectacular with awesome beds, bathrooms, etc. Booked a suite which was really special - had a real nice sitting area with kitchen and Nespresso machine. Staff is great and fitness center adequate. Breakfast area was basic but nice. This is a great place if you need space to spread out. Location is really unique and special being a converted chocolate factory. Great views of Alcatraz.

Lovely view Lovely apartment
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Our family spent 2 nights here which I think it is too short. We wish we have more time here. The hotel is lovely with a beautiful view and convenience access to restaurants and golden gate. There are 6 of us staying a 2 bedrooms apartment. It is comfortable and convenience.

The breakfast here is ok, not too fancy and nothing much in the menu.
