Thank you Westin St. Francis for hosting us along with 1,000 other women for the BlogHer conference two weeks ago; but we really wish we stayed at the Clift. Recently renovated, the hotel is striking, both elegant and modern. The Clift is part of the fabulous Morgans Group, which includes the Delano Miami and the Mondrians in LA and Scottsdale.
We spent two of our three nights lounging in the Redwood Room (picture below). There was a line to get in; but it was easy to navigate (a long line of men is a sure sign they're looking for female patrons). The place was packed with an attractive mix of people, even the ever present bachelorette party (good spot if you're looking for a place to take your bride-to-be BFF).
Through the Redwood Room is the tasty Asia de Cuba restaurant where we've eaten in Scottsdale and NYC.
The Clift has what we look for in a hotel on our girls' trips: good location- it's downtown in Union Square, a great bar/lounge, and a quality restaurant.
Thanks to Lily, our fave Irish gal pal, for suggesting the Clift on our first night (but no thanks for the way we felt the next day); and thanks to our gorgeous beauty guru, Kristin, for the hospitality on night two.
