Impressive luxury and impeccable service await at this modern high-rise hotel in happening SoMa. Chic, spacious rooms and luxurious suites are decked out with every amenity, and some afford skyline city views. Public transportation, shopping, restaurants and nightspots are within easy walking distance.

 In the trendy SoMa neighbourhood, the St Regis stands opposite the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and one block from the Moscone Center for conventions. It’s a five-minute walk to Market Street, where you can catch buses and streetcars, or 10 minutes to the nearest BART and Muni train station. On the waterfront, the Ferry Building marketplace is a 20-minute walk from the hotel.

Inside a 40-storey building designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, and newly built in 2005, the hotel takes its inspiration from the nearby SFMOMA museum and dazzles visitors with its contemporary art collection. The lobby, which measures almost 5000 square feet, has a glamorous atmosphere, decked out in silver, black, bronze and smoky blue. Opulent and yet entirely unstuffy, the hotel caters to modern jetsetters
