Very much a disappointing stay :(
Will not stay here again. The Clift, which was a wonderful hotel in it's day, is long past this now. The lobby interior is dark and forboding; almost morgue-like. The staff are certainly professional though without warmth that would distinguish itself from any other hotel options in the area. The room, which was a corner one, had a nice view of the city. It was spacious in the living/sleeping area. The bathroom on the other hand was small, poorly planned, and in need of renovation. Overall, the entire hotel would benefit from a significant investment and overhaul completely. If I were continuously working in a darkened heavy atmosphere it would affect my mood as well.

Tired Hotel
I stayed here several years ago. Thought is was a good place to revisit. A very tired property. Trendy furniture pretty beat up. Same furniture and decor from years ago. Come on people, time to freshen up . Staff unattentive. Much better choices nearby !

This was perfect for our short stay!
The hotel was about to undergo some renovations, so the scaffolding outside made it a bit tricky to find and maneuver through, but it was lovely once we were inside! Great boutique hotel with interesting design, and the bar is amazing! Really beautiful, and staff was very friendly. Room was a bit small, but that's to be expected in the city. Very comfortable bed!

Beautiful place, well situated
Best part of this place is the location. And the bar. Near the heart of Union Square and steps away from the Curran Theatre, there’s plenty around.
