Cornell Hotel San Francisco is a French boutique hotel located in the heart of San Francisco. With its individually decorated rooms, artistically furbished hallways and the sound of French tunes, guests are magically transported to the beautiful rive gauche of Paris. Thanks to the great folks at Cornell Hotel De France, we were hosted to an unforgettable stay at this unique French-inspired gem of San Francisco!
About Cornell Hotel De France San Francisco
Lobby of Cornell Hotel De France San Francisco
In the lobby of Cornell Hotel De France, you’ll be able to feel the flavours of France as you enter this boutique hotel. Cafe Jeanne D’Arc is a small lounge that provides guests with coffee and biscuits. Its decor resembles that of a typical cafe in the streets of Paris and it’s a place where you can chill and catch up over a cuppa.
Right opposite Cafe Jeanne D’Arc is another place for travellers to check some mails, read some magazines or simply rest in one of the comfortable sofas within…
And to illustrate the decoration as you enter the hotel, check out this statue of Joan of Arc (Jeanne D’Arc) in the lobby, next to the vintage elevator – complete with sliding scissor gate within!
Cornell Hotel De France San Francisco – Deluxe Room
The rooms of Cornell Hotel De France are individually decorated. This means that each room exudes its own authentic flavour of France. To up the ante, there’s even a resident painter that does the murals all around the hotel. Check out these murals found in our room…
There was a homely feel to our room. Bed was comfy and the lighting was calming. Though the pillow was slightly “flat”, that could be easily solved with additional pillows found in the room. What we love about the room are the furniture within. The bed and bedside table complemented each other with its off white colour. Which, also matched the secretary desk. Which, pulls out to reveal Kate’s favourite colour – mint!
