Few hotels in the country are as synonymous with the city they're in as Kimpton Sir Francis Drake. The hotel defines San Francisco - exciting, romantic, and a little off-beat. Take in the ornate lobby, and the clang of the cable cars - it's all part of the legendary San Francisco experience. Thousands flock here to have their picture taken with the most photographed person in San Francisco, our famous Beefeater doorman, Tom Sweeney. You may leave your heart in San Francisco, but you'll always know where to find it... at Kimpton Sir Francis Drake Hotel. Delight your senses in one of our renowned food and beverage outlets. Enjoy Executive Chef Larry Finn's Northern Italian Cuisine in Scala's Bistro, sip a prohibition-era cocktail in the lobby at Bar Drake, or take a ride up to the 21st floor where you'll find iconic nightclub Starlight Room with panoramic views of the city, award winning cocktails, and dancing nightly.
