Our Story

Our Story 2

The Phoenix Hotel pays homage to funk and rock and roll, and as a result, is a popular destination for musicians and artists. The ambiance here is casual and laid back with a landmark pool surrounding the 1950s architecture, this funky urban space is a popular retreat in the San Francisco entertainment district.

With so much creative energy swirling around you never know who might be strumming a guitar, posing for a photo shoot or just kicking back by the pool.

Voted #1 Hippest Hotel by Travel and Leisure   magazine in 2012, the Phoenix Hotel is a landmark, celebrating over two decades of being San Francisco's world-renowned "rock 'n' roll hotel." Funky, irreverent and young-at-heart, The Phoenix isn't for everyone. It's at the edge of the gritty Tenderloin neighborhood and the city’s civic center. Its central courtyard shared with our lounge Chambers eat + drink is a true crossroads for the creative — a good place to check out visiting artists and entertainers, please note it can be noisy at times. Even so, San Francisco's Phoenix has some of the most loyal guests in the world.

Each of our 44 spacious guestrooms surrounds a lush central courtyard and has a retro chic décor that accents the original bungalow design of the rooms. Guestrooms at the Phoenix Hotel feature complimentary Wi-Fi service and Bulk TV services with HBO. Our three Deluxe King rooms and three suites also have refrigerators and microwaves. San Francisco's Phoenix Hotel is a non-smoking hotel.
