It’s all about the view here: hands down, it’s the best in town. The hotel, which occupies the top 11 floors of a 48-story building, is an Instagrammer’s dream. But while you might be tempted to take a long bath in the deep tub while gazing out at the San Francisco skyline, you should probably leave the bathroom eventually….right? When you do, you’ll find the rest of the hotel is just as spectacular: the spa is soothing and the treatment rooms very private, the rooms are spacious and have desks big enough to actually work at, and in addition to a well-equipped gym, the hotel offers summer yoga on the 40th-floor deck, where you can literally salute the sun. While every room has fabulous views (use the binoculars provided for full effect), the restaurant, all the way down on the first floor, unfortunately doesn’t.
In the Area
Just five blocks from the waterfront, the hotel offers easy access to the tourist mecca of the Embarcadero, though savvy travelers will prefer to head south instead, towards the Yerba Buena gardens, St. Patrick’s Church, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Museum of the African Diaspora, which are a half-mile walk away (and all San Francisco must-sees). A BART station is just three blocks away (easy airport access!) and there are heaps of cafes and restaurants nearby. Working while traveling? Stop by Workshop Café, a pay-by-the-hour workspace with coffee and fast WiFi. Once you’re finished, stroll over to Rickhouse Bar, where the after-work crowd mingles and downs creative cocktails like the Rye Maple Fizz. Alternately, there’s 83 Proof, a well-stocked whiskey bar in a welcoming high-ceilinged space.
How to Get There
Outstandingly hotel with amazing views and comfortable bedding. I highly recommend the Loews Regency San Francisco. The staff was professional and courteous and the restaurant was excellent. The location was very convenient to the major attractions in the city.
Research always pays off. This hotel was a Mandarin property. The location, service, elite room accommodations and breathtaking, panoramic Golden Gate Bridge to TransAmerica Pyramid to Four Tower to Bay Bridge views insure we will be returning to Room 4806 of this 5 star luxury property.
This was my first visit to the Loews Regency in San Francisco, and I expect to be back.The location was very convenient for business and dining. I am a frequent business traveler and usually stick with Marriott, Starwood and Hilton properties, but during a recent trade show, my usual hotels charged too much. At the Loews, the rooms were very nice, but the friendly staff made the difference. I felt very welcomed, and most of all, the greetings felt sincere. One manager passed me in the hall and asked how my stay was going. I indicated the room was great but asked about a coffee maker, and he had one delivered by the time I returned for the day. In this day, I guess I have grown to take the coffee maker for granted. The view was great The lobby was under renovation, so I can't comment on that, but the 2 elevators that were running were slow; that's my only gripe.
Great service, lovely view from 28th floor. Rooftop bar gives you stunning sunset views and rooms have binoculars. Central and walking distance to most places such as Union Square and Chinatown. Room was beautiful with views on 2 sides, bathroom was spacious. Currently in renovations so did not see what true reception could look like. Great stay though
For someone who loves views and the freedom they provoke this is by far the best view is San Francisco one can get. I enjoyed every minute of it and the money is well spent. Sitting by the window in the 11th. floor room you can be iconic places like the Golden Gate Bridge, the Transamerica Pyramid, Coit Tower, and the Bay Bridge. If you go down to the 40th. floor you can have a drink and enjoy the views from both sides of the hotel and see the Salesforce Tower, I cannot get enough of this place. The service is really good. I’ll come back for sure!
