California Dreaming

A historic restoration reimagines a San Francisco gem

ForrestPerkins recently revived the Westin St. Francis hotel, housed in San Francisco’s 1904 Landmark Building. The award-winning, $45 million overhaul upgraded the property’s 618 rooms and specialty suites. The design team took inspiration from Parisian décor in a nod to San Francisco’s reputation as “The Paris of the West.” The two-level Chairman’s Suite boasts carved millwork in the main-floor living room and dining room; upstairs, layered and refined textures create a serene and tranquil vibe in one of three bedrooms. The hotel’s dining options include ENO wine bar, serving close to 50 wines by the glass, and the venerable Oak Room Restaurant, which opened in 1913 as a wood-paneled bar for men only. Rates from $144; westinstfrancis.com
