Iconic Hotel in Union Square

Kimpton Sir Francis Drake Hotel is Temporarily Suspending Operations

We’re committed to keeping our employees, guests, their families and our communities safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. With that, we have a collective responsibility on social distancing and have made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend our operations. Know that this isn’t goodbye. Travel will thrive again soon and when it does, we look forward to celebrating all of life’s happy occasions with you.

With a regal atmosphere and a killer location in Union Square, Kimpton Sir Francis Drake Hotel is a San Francisco classic. From the moment the red-suited Beefeater whisks you into the ornate lobby, the grand staircases, gilded ceilings, sleek marble walls and crystal chandeliers evoke an Old World charm you won’t find anywhere else. Recently renovated, this upscale landmark is also home to the acclaimed Italian eatery Scala's Bistro and newly reimagined Lizzie’s Starlight.
