MANDARIN ORIENTAL, SAN FRANCISCO
The Asian-influenced Mandarin Oriental San Francisco promises ‘legendary service and legendary views’, and they more than deliver on their promise.
Located in the upper 11 floors of one of San Francisco’s tallest buildings, the hotel provides guests with stunning panoramas over the city. Once elite travelers have torn their eyes away from the Golden Gate Bridge and Bay views, they’ll notice the subtle luxury throughout the hotel. An elegant décor of creams, gold and black creates a relaxing atmosphere for guests to enjoy. Take time out in the Fitness Center or eschew exercise and head straight to Silks, the hotel’s in-house restaurant, which has received rave reviews for its imaginative fusion of Asian and American cuisine. And, of course, there’s the fantastic service, which really does go the extra mile; a concierge once loaned his own shoes to a gentleman who needed footwear for a meeting.
TOP SUITE THE ORIENTAL SUITE
Why we love it: It’s no surprise to find that the finest vista in the hotel can be sampled from the top suite; after all, you always give the best to the best. The private outdoor terrace spans the entire length of the suite and offers incredible views – from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Bay Bridge and everything in between. The master bedroom features a king-size bed and a deep-soaking jet stream bathtub, perfect for a romantic getaway, while there is a second master bedroom, which also features a king-size bed, as well as another private marble bathroom.
