Our take on Sir Francis Drake, a Kimpton Hotel

Approach "The Drake" from Powell Street in Union Square and you'll immediately spot the famous Beefeater doormen in bright red uniforms. Legend has it that one doorman, Tom Sweeney, is the most photographed person in San Francisco. But the allure of Sir Francis Drake Hotel doesn't stop there. The entrance into the grand lobby is only the beginning of a stay you won't soon forget. The hotel combines detailed architecture straight out of the Italian Renaissance with the character and ambiance you'd expect from a Kimpton property. Meanwhile, rooms are bright, classy and a little sassy (leopard or zebra-print robes, anyone?), with modern amenities like flatscreen TVs and sweeping views of the city or the bay. And this hotel certainly has energy: locals and tourists alike are drawn to Scala's Bistro, where Executive Chef Jennifer Biesty (Bravo's Top Chef winner) has created a delicious and fashionable dining experience. Likewise, Harry Denton's Starlight Room on the 21st floor of the hotel provides a dazzling 360-degree view of the city and a glamorous nightclub scene that only Harry Denton, "the man who views life as one big party," could provide.
