Partially opened before the pandemic with the best city and bay views of any hotel in San Francisco, Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero has now completed a two-and-a-half-year, multimillion-dollar renovation in partnership with luxury design firm Marzipan. The property’s 127 rooms and 28 suites are expansive and done in a cool palette with lots of gray, blue and plum colors, and furniture and lighting inspired by San Francisco’s famous cable cars. Wall coverings woven with threads of gold to pay homage to the city’s Gold Rush history. Floors are natural-toned wood punctuated with hand-tufted wool rugs; bespoke millwork detailing frames the windows and their iconic views.
The hotel occupies the top of the 48-story 345 California Center building and has sky bridges across floors 40-48 that connect the hotel’s two towers — a prime spot for panoramic views spanning both sides of the building. But the big news here is the unveiling of two new premium Private Terrace Suites, each with 2,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor living space, including a living room, dining room, kitchenette, powder room, rain shower, freestanding soaking tub, and the feature after which these beautiful suites is named: 800 square-foot terraces (bigger than the vast majority of standard hotel rooms in the city).
General Manager Gigi Vega says, “As we unveil the expansive Private Terrace Suites, we welcome guests to indulge in our luxury boutique atmosphere, magnificent views, and spacious accommodations, all presented with Four Seasons’ first-rate, personalized hospitality. We are so proud and delighted that all our guest rooms and suites at Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero are now complete and open. This affords our team the opportunity to provide an enhanced, one-of-a-kind hospitality experience for sophisticated travelers looking for an unforgettable San Francisco stay.”
The hotel is situated within easy walking distance of Chinatown, Little Italy, the Embarcadero waterfront, and a number of the city’s best restaurants. But it’s hard to leave such a perfect spot and, luckily, the 24-hour room service offers a diverse enough menu to keep everyone happy.
The street address for the entrance to Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero is 222 Sansome St. Stay tuned for news of the hotel’s new restaurant concept in the coming months.
