The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco PRESIDENTIAL SUITE

In a landmark building dating to 1909, The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco sits at the edge of charming Nob Hill, where it takes advantage of its enviable location at the center of it all. It’s a short walk to The Embarcadero and Union Square, and the city’s cable cars stop right out front. Inside, the property blends history with contemporary elegance, from its stunning lobby filled with imposing marble columns and crystal chandeliers to its refined restaurant, Parallel 37, and its traditional and opulent lounge, which pairs a red-lit bar with a carved marble fireplace. On the ninth floor, the highlight of the impressive Presidential Suite is undoubtedly the enormous 1,200-sq-ft furnished terrace with pristine views of the Financial District. With its penthouse location and the hotel’s position up in Nob Hill, you’ll have a unique vantage point for gazing at the top of the city skyline. The suite’s expansive living room is well-appointed in blue and gray with modern furniture and art. On one side, French doors open to an elegant dining room with a large, oval-shaped marble dining table. On the other, they lead to the beautifully decorated master bedroom — where you can also admire the city views from bed — and the marble-clad bathroom, which has a large whirlpool tub and rain-forest shower. San Francisco sights If you don’t have time to get to Napa Valley, be sure to visit the JCB by Jean-Charles Boisset Tasting Lounge. (Boisset has won numerous accolades including being deemed one of the 50 most important people in the wine world for over a decade.) The dark and sexy space is awash with purple velvet, gold accents and more chandeliers — it’s the perfect space for an intimate wine-flight tasting.
