Hotel Adagio, San Francisco

In Hotels, North America by LA Travel Magazine

Located in the heart of San Francisco’s Union Square district Hotel Adagio is a landmark structure hosting theatergoers and tourists alike. Originally built in 1929 the structure is within walking distance to world-class shopping, dining and entertainment as well as key attractions including the Moscone Center, Market Street, North Beach, Chinatown and three of the city’s most historic theaters.

A new benchmark for San Francisco boutique hotels, Hotel Adagio is truly a sophisticated retreat. The vision behind the hotel’s recent multi-million renovation includes textured backdrops comprised of warm coffee tones and punctuated with vibrant pops of color – lime green and deep purple accent the hotel’s guest rooms, and deep orange and cranberry in the public spaces. Each of the 171 rooms and suites is infused with modern decor, the latest technology and the space you need to feel at home with the largest hotel rooms in San Francisco. Mixed with an upscale, contemporary design the lobby décor creates a unique and clean arrival experience, accentuated by one of the city’s newest and hottest craft cocktail bars, The Mortimer.  Check-in was smooth and the staff was very accommodating.  We were given the key to the penthouse located on floor sixteen; a nice surprise upgrade to start the stay off right.  As we opened the door to our suite I noticed the clean contemporary décor theme continued.  The views of the city were fantastic.  Our room featured Luxe Egyptian cotton linens, a 32” HD LCD TV, a premium sound system with a docking station and ample work space, although I will not be working on this trip it’s still nice to know I could if I had to.

During our stay we notice that every time we passed through the lobby, the Mortimer was busy and seemed the “happening” spot to be. The Mortimer was voted as one of San Francisco’s hottest new bars.  Unfortunately we didn’t have a chance to experience it firsthand but with the amount of people coming in and out of the bar I am sure it is fabulous.

Insider Tip: For breakfast The Green Room is a perfect place to start your day.  The three cage free egg omelet with mushrooms, spinach and gruyere is a winner.
