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
Stayed on the 47th floor at Loews San Francisco recently.
View was amazing!
Staff were friendly. I have to say i was disappointed there were no coffee or tea making facilities in the room.
Calling room service also seemed a bit hit or miss as I tried to order from the menu that was apparently incorrect. In house restaurant was not too bad, but in a relatively quiet time meals were very slow to appear. We did enjoy our stay, just little things could have made it better.
Spent a couple days here while exploring San Francisco. The property is in a great location. There are plenty of great restaurants nearby. You are right in the middle of the city, Chinatown is right up the hill. You can get to the wharf via cable car or Uber.
We were celebrating our 10 year Anniversary and the Loews Staff made our hotel experience memorable. We walked in to Wine and goodies and the views were just amazing. Room 4611 Bridge to Bridge! Thank You Loews we definitely will be back.
Wow.. We stayed at this hotel the night of Saturday October, 6th to 7th after staying several nights in Lake Tahoe. First, the team that services the guests is awesome. We were greeted by Eileen who offered us Champagne while she checked us in. Another way in which we felt appreciated was when we came back to our room after dinner and the staff had put a bottle of Champagne and a couple of deserts in our room for our anniversary. We were further amazed when we were standing at the elevator the next morning and Tom, the bellman, greeted us by name and asked us how our stay in SF was going? We were amazed he knew our name, and not after seeing us leave our room, but while standing at the elevator. We asked for a late checkout and Bree at the front desk was just awesome and said "well it's your anniversary and anything we can do to make it more enjoyable would be our pleasure!!" The room was excellent, super clean and came with beautiful views of the city. Highly Recommend.
I spent a lot of time trying to work out what area of San Francisco we should stay in and then what hotel.City Guides seemed to say Union Square area or Fisherman's Wharf or maybe SOMA so I was concerned that the Financial area would be a bit of a flop. Not at all- it was within walking distance of many things and Loew's close by BART and the cable car. Moreover the hotel itself, which I worried might be a soulless business place, was absolutely outstanding. It is not cheap, but we thought it wholly worth it. We booked a Bay View room, which was on the 42nd floor: simply magnificent views! We stayed 5 nights, went travelling for 3 weeks and came back for 2 further nights. I asked if we could stay in the same room, but they upgraded us to a junior suite on the same floor, which was just stunning.As others have commented, we found the staff extraordinarily welcoming, helpful and friendly. The level of professionalism was hard to beat. I am sure I am forgetting some of the names- but there were no exceptions: the doorman Andy was great, the concierge desk quite brilliantly staffed with Michael, Rosemary and Brian whilst Bree on reception was a gem. In booking the arrangements, which were just slightly complex, Alaine and Rey were very accomodating.The first night we thought to eat something light in the Bear and Monarch but honestly struggled to find anything suitable on the menu so we hopped across to The Irish Times for something cheap and cheerful, which was actually quite good. I did think the B and M lacked atmosphere for the money involved. However, breakfast there was super. Again, not cheap, but on the two days we left the hotel, when we needed a good meal to set us up for the day, it did the job admirably. The eggs benedict with dungeness crab is amazing! I know that this all sounds over the top, but we are seasoned travellers and can be very critical at times (I will be so over some of the other places we stayed on our 3 weeks moving around!); it is a balanced assessment of what is a great hotel. 5 stars at least!
