The historic, 161-room Hotel Carlton offers an international ambiance with outstanding guest service.

Each of Hotel Carlton's guestrooms offers a soft palette of soothing tones such as light, breezy blue and cashmere cream, punctuated by touches of glowing colors like saffron, Oriental red and a cheerful persimmon. The guestrooms also feature hand-painted Moroccan side tables and photography of exquisitely detailed wall paintings from Upper Mustang, Nepal Fifteenth Century temples.

Another cherished facet of this quintessential San Francisco hotel experience is the views. Hotel Carlton isn't flanked by adjoining buildings — a rarity in this district of San Francisco. The majority of rooms look out onto an expansive, unobstructed view. All guestrooms include plush Serta mattresses, complimentary wireless high-speed Internet access, in-room laptop safe, marble-topped writing desk, coffeemaker, ceiling fan, 32" flat-screen panel televisions with HDTV, iHome clock radio docks, iron and board and hair dryer.
