The new Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero features lots of winter surprises, including a spin on the Pacific Coast Highway.
The Sky Deck at the newly reopened Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero
The team behind the newly reopened Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco at Embarcadero understands its assets: a storied setting, an impeccable brand and, well, those views. This explains why one of the experiences at the property—which was briefly shuttered after its grand opening because of the pandemic—is a photo class with award-winning photographer Adam Jacobs.
The hotel’s sleek exterior entrance
The photo pro shares techniques to capture the best vignettes of the city, as he stops with guests at spots like the Transamerica Pyramid, Pier 7, the Ferry Building, Rincon Park, the Bay Bridge and Salesforce Tower.
A corner suite offers outstanding Golden Gate views and lots of space to unwind, read or enjoy a private dinner as the city lights rise.
But Adams could easily conduct classes from any of the vantage points at the Four Seasons; the views, indoors and out, are the stuff of photographic legend—from the Golden Gate Bridge to the dramatic downtown skyline. “There’s so much this hotel and city have to offer, and we can’t wait for our guests to once again enjoy personalized experiences,” says the hotel’s general manager, Robert Megargle, of the redesigned guest rooms and suites located on the top 11 floors of the 48-story 345 California Center building.
The My Bar amenity at the Four Seasons
For families embarking on weekend staycations this winter, one of the best options includes the hotel’s Embarcadero suites, with roomy, studio-style layouts and, for those who need to connect to the office, separate desks for virtual meetings. Still on tap for 2022: the unveiling of the hotel restaurant and the Sky Deck, a 40th-floor outdoor space perfect for intimate events and pop-ups.

If guests desire a breakout vacation (behind the wheel of a Maserati Levante SUV, no less), the hotel offers its Suite Road Trip package along the Pacific Coast Highway through the end of the year. The journey begins at the legendary Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons property, where guests take advantage of complimentary use of the Maserati to cruise Rodeo Drive or up Mulholland Drive—complete with a curated Spotify playlist—before embarking up the coast to check out landmarks like the Hearst Castle, Big Sur and Carmel. The 24-hour odyssey glides into a luxe landing at the San Francisco Four Seasons at Embarcadero, where, even in its infancy, the property already has the power to please under its hood. 222 Sansome St., 415.276.9888
