The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco

San Francisco




Set high atop Nob Hill within an historic landmark building completed in 1909, The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco features one of San Francisco’s finest examples of Neo-Classical architecture.

The Terrace Courtyard Tent is highlighted by a beautiful red-brick courtyard, which is enclosed by an impeccably manicured garden of roses, herbs and boxed hedges. The surrounding cityscape provides a stunning backdrop, an ideal combination of charm and elegance!

The Terrace Room provides a classic and glamorous feel for receptions. Natural light and easy access to an outdoor patio will allow your guests to comfortably mingle both inside and outside. Gorgeously designed modern chandeliers and ornate carpeting decorate the room for a truly remarkable reception ambiance.

For a large celebration, make use of the Ritz-Carlton Ballroom, which is used in tandem with the adjacent Galleries. Perfect for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, each elegantly appointed Gallery inspired by couture fashion features Bavarian crystal chandeliers, silver leaf wall coverings and lavish carpeting in grey and black with a floral motif.

Added bonuses, the historic cable car stops just outside the hotel and the close proximity to mainstay landmarks like Union Square, Chinatown and Fisherman’s Wharf allows your guests the opportunity to experience all that San Francisco has to offer!
