Description

Located in the heart of Union Square in San Francisco, the Sir Francis Drake Hotel is a perfect mix of regal and relaxed contemporary style. With its ornate chandeliers, richly patterned fabrics, and swirling staircases, this hotel’s Renaissance-influenced architectural splendor will memorize your guests from the moment they arrive and are greeted by the smiling Beefeater doormen. Past the opulent lobby begging for grand entrances, and up on the 21st floor at the Starlight Room, retro-chic meets urban adventure in a plush, red-on red environment of cozy booths, velvet finishes and a spinning disco ball. Take a moment to soak in the unforgettable city views of the San Francisco skyline. Your reception can be held in any of the gorgeous salons and ballrooms with baroque accents and imperial décor. Guests will enjoy the perks of the ideal location, just steps from the Powell Street cable cars and Union Square’s doorstep.
