Sleek, masculine, and trendy, with an L.A. sensibility, this hotel embodies the “work hard, play hard” ethic of San Francisco’s young professionals, providing a proverbial adult playground for the tech crowd. For starters, it has a highly interactive lobby, complete with a Plinko Game and a playroom featuring a pool table, shuffleboard, and video games—and if you need to really get away, step into Exit Reality, a virtual reality booth. Guest rooms start at a spacious 250 square feet and feature large butcher-block desks, pillow-top mattresses, smart TVs, and illy espresso machines; the roomy bathrooms feature mosaic-tiled walk-in showers. The sexy lobby bar and comfy-cool Cavalier restaurant are both worth a visit (try the potted Dungeness crab).
