A landmark since 1875, this is a hotel brimming with history. Having been completely demolished in the earthquake of 1906, the present-day Beaux Arts structure reopened three years later and then underwent a top-to-bottom refresh in 2015. While gray, plum and white replaced gold brocaded upholstery, other beloved features of yesteryears remained: such as 11ft ceilings, original 1909 door handles and windows that invited natural light. Also remodelled three years ago was the hotel’s glasstopped pool and whirlpool spa – perfect for morning dips and post-shopping downtime.
