Adagio Hotel, San Francisco
San Francisco is in our hearts and future. Any recommendations for an out of the ordinary, conveniently located boutique hotel would be appreciated.

San Francisco has an incredibly diverse and exciting range of hotels for their visitors. May we suggest the Hotel Adagio which offers an fascinating blend of traditional Spanish Colonial Revival with a totally modern and stylish aesthetic. A warm and rich palette along with sensuous textures are balanced by simple and open design of furnishings and fixtures. During a recent visit we were continually delighted to discover subtle innovative touches both practical and whimsical. All in all a most artistic setting for your San Francisco adventures. The attentative staff made us feel welcome and took care of any special requests with efficient grace.

The Hotel Adagio, formerly Shannon Court, places you right in the heart of the Theater District a few blocks from Union Square and some of the west coast’s finest shopping. A notable fitness center with weights, Cybex and cardiovascular equipment helped us prepare for our daily adventures. Amenities are plentiful and include complimentary high-speed Internet access.

Just off the lobby you will find Cortez, the Hotel Adagio’s new restaurant, which is as smart as the city itself. A Cortez evening is perfect for pre- or post-theater with it’s creatively prepared and presented small portions stylishly delivered as courses with plenty of drama and satisfaction. Chopped ahi with shaved fennel, herbs & shallot oil; Fricassee of chanterelles, pancetta, parsnip and Gnocchi; slow cooked organic chicken breast and fresh herbs, mushroom ragu and creamed scallions are just a few offerings which set our taste buds aglow. Outstanding wines by the glass at very modest prices encourage discovery. Whether as a beginning to an evening on the town or for a celebration of food and friends we strongly suggest you give the Cortez experience a try.

The Hotel Adagio is part of the Joie de Vivre Hospitality collection. For reservations or information call (800) 738-7477 or visit
