This hotel on the corner of Market and East Bay is for those who like some chintz with their antebellum charm. Don't worry, the oil paintings in gilt frames and intricate brocade wallpaper in the lobby are just tasteful enough to avoid being over-the-top. The 70 rooms have a similar look, with mahogany beds made up with Frette linens, heavy damask curtains, and Italian marble bathrooms full of Hermès products. The rooftop pool lined with fountains and striped loungers is a summertime gem, but inexplicably shuts down at 4 pm when the cabana bar opens for business. There's also a classic gentleman's club–style bar downstairs with antique wood booths and a steak restaurant that serves a mouthwatering New York strip.

Appeared in the Condé Nast Traveler Gold List, a directory of the world's best hotels and resorts, in 2009, 2008
