Join the ranks of kings, rock stars and presidents who’ve taken up residence in the hotel’s dazzling crown jewel. Stage a lavish wedding atop San Francisco or throw a party for 130 honored guests. The 6,000-square-foot sprawling Penthouse Suite is the ultimate in urban luxury. Spanning the entire eighth floor of the Main Building, this unique suite spotlights the city’s celebrated skyline, Bay and signature landmarks from large windows. Custom furnishings, hand-carved woods and original artwork by greats like David Hockney accent the regal golds, purples and blues, setting the tone of 1920s eclectic opulence. There’s even a secret passage behind a bookcase. Start with cocktails under the two-story library’s dome ceiling decorated with an original gold leaf celestial map or on the sprawling Mediterranean-inspired terrace. Cater events from the full commercial kitchen, retire after dinner to the ornate Moorish-design billiard room and enjoy live entertainment with the living room grand piano. The formal dining room seats up to 30 in high Art Deco style. Make yourself at home in three expansive bedrooms, one with a whimsical hand-painted map of the world, the master with a queenly four-poster bed, and three and a half luxurious bathrooms. Not surprisingly, the Penthouse Suite is on the National Register of Historic Places.
