When I’m in SF I love a hotel with a view, 2 that have really impressed me are Loews and the St Regis.

I like the Omni. Easy walk to Chinatown and Ferry Building area too. And good rates over the weekend usually .

Questions like this are not so helpful without context I’d imagine.

I’ve only stayed on one. It was very nice (the St Regis) but I couldn’t possibly say it’s the best unless I had stayed in all the others, or at least a representative sample.

Sorry.

I always enjoyed the Mandarin Oriental (now the Loews) when I was in SF on business

That's why I asked for your favorite as opposed to a recommendation.

Ritz and a Four Seasons are great. We recently really liked the Taj Campton and will definitely return. Really enjoyed the restaurant there, too. The Westin St. Francis is solid but can be pricey but, then again, it’s a great location if you want that area. Stayed at the Clift years ago a couple of times and it was nice. Can’t remember why we didn’t go back other than wanting some variety maybe.

Fairmont if you get the right room .... I've stayed there a lot and their larger rooms with huge windows looking over the city and the Bay are stunning. The Intercontinental near Moscone is lovely and convenient if you need to be in that location. My real favorite though is the Hotel Kabuki - fun fun fun and stroll next door into Japantown for sushi, ramen and more. Not the posh option and a slight bit away from the main business parts of the city but so enjoyable.

Mark Hopkins and Fairmont have good views from the top of Nob Hill. Two older hotels somewhat overrun by tourists. The Ritz is down the hill a bit and I’m not sure how good the views are, but it’s newer and typically Ritz.
