After more than 24 hours flying across continents, arriving to a beautiful comfortable hotel is a treat. But if you’re welcomed by a smiley person and French macarons at reception, then it’s even better!
This is how we reached The Payne Mansion in San Francisco’s Sutter Street. A stunning building in the city center, recently converted into a luxurious boutique hotel, with only ten exclusive rooms.
We spent our nights at Room 306, an elegant jr. suite that combines bedroom and lounge area. It is important for you to sleep well, but the space also invites you to stick around during the day to read, write, or do anything else you like with a complimentary freshly brewed cup of coffee.
The bathroom facilities are luxurious yet functional. There is both a shower and a bathtub, complemented with high end amenities.
Amongst the ten rooms at The Payne Mansion Hotel, classic sophistication is a constant. But they all have their different theme and touches. Some are more lavish, like the Coit Tower Suite, while others include a more contemporary feeling.
Aesthetic considerations aside, all suites are comfortable and equipped with top of the line furnishings to ensure you enjoy a pleasant stay.
Breakfast consists of a Continental spread, served in a dining room with very pretty stained glass. The selection is simple and fresh: bagels with cheese, butters and jams, yogurts and granola, berries and fruits, juices and coffee.
We were lucky enough to visit The Payne Mansion during its grand opening, when this boutique hotel welcomed friends and neighbors to come have a look at the new jewel on their street, also open for weddings and other events.
This Victorian style house dates back to 1881 and we were happy to see how well preserved it is. By housing The Payne Mansion Hotel, this architectural marvel will continue to be an active part of San Francisco’s city center, while adding some more charm to it too.
If you’re looking for a classy romantic hotel, yet you enjoy high-end amenities, The Payne Mansion Hotel is a great place to spend some relaxing time at. Centrally located in the Lower Pacific Heights neighborhood, it is well situated for touristic activities, while offering a quiet and tranquil atmosphere.
