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
In the center of the Financial District, Loews comes with all the standard amenities you would expect from a luxury hotel.
A careful consideration for visitors is the location. In the after banking hours, the area becomes quite desolate and the only convenience is a 7-11 mini mart across the street. Yet in the age of Uber and Lyft, nightlife and bustling restaurants are just minutes away.
During the day the Financial District is great to explore on foot. Within minutes walking distance you will encounter the Ferry Building, Coit Tower, Transamercia Pyramid and Fisherman's Wharf. The Embarcadero BART station is also blocks away.
A selling point for us: the view from the 44th floor accessible to all hotel guests.
End of April early May we stayed, and I can't find the words to describe this hotel. Queen room 47th Floor facing the bay of San Fransisco. Absolutely stunning views of the bay. I don't think we will ever beat the view that we had in this room. We left curtains open at night as you just don't want to shut this view away. You can be in bed and be directly facing Alcatraz Island and also to your left, the stunning Golden Gate Bridge. Top hotel, lovely staff were so helpful. If I ever went back to San Fran I would have to stay here again. Money well spent.
Every member of the hotel team makes you feel extremely welcome and every person greets you warmly and with a smile. Makes a huge difference at the end of a long day. The hotel is in a great location, right downtown and close to all transportation.
A beautiful hotel with extraordinary staff and service, conveniently located 10mn walk from Embarcadero or Telegraph hill. Our room had stunning scenic views over the City and the bay. Great gym and overall facilities. Highly recommended.
My fiancé and I spent a great weekend in San Francisco at the Loews Regency. The lobby and restaurant area are modern and updated, and the rooms are comfortable and clean. Our suite on the 39th view boasted breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay. The gym is spacious and well equipped. The most notable part of our stay was how great the service was - the staff and concierge were kind, welcoming, and responsive. In one instance the concierge overheard us discussing our lunch plans for the day and he jumped in and gladly provided us with clear and easy directions. Would definitely return to this hotel in the future.
