Views of the city don’t get much better than atop the legendary Mandarin Oriental San Francisco.
It’s not every day you have the panoramic trifecta of a sparkling city, a sprawling bay and an iconic landmark to enjoy from your private 800 square-foot rooftop terrace.
This is the Oriental Suite – the penthouse at San Francisco’s Mandarin Oriental.
The one-bedroom suite is as divine inside as it is out; a plush king-size bed, a spacious and luxe marble bathroom with an oversized tub and separate shower, Molton Brown toiletries, and a living area that’s decked out in contemporary décor.
When you’ve eaten everything on the room service menu – and must drag yourself away from the suite – there is plenty to keep you satisfied.
The hotel, which promises a blended ambience of Californian charisma and Oriental charm, has a casual brasserie and bar, fitness centre, and a day spa. An Oriental meridian massage and rainforest shower after a busy day exploring? Sign us up.
And being so centrally located means easy access to the best of San Fran: Fisherman’s Wharf, Union Square, Chinatown and the Ferry Building are only a short walk away. You could almost map out your itinerary looking down from your terrace.
