Lounging With the Financial-District Set in San Francisco, CA
At the corner of Sutter and Kearny, where the upscale boutique shopping of Union Square meets the business of the Financial District, sits the Galleria Park Hotel. Renovated in 2007, the hotel fuses sleek and fashion-forward decor with the building's vintage features—in the lobby, warm yourself in front of an art-nouveau-inspired fireplace, or look up to see an intricate cut-crystal ceiling from the early 1900s. While its location is ideal for businesspeople, the 8-floor, 177-room property caters to others: its pet-friendly policy and third-floor outdoor terrace—a hidden urban park—appeals to travelers with furry friends in tow. And the stylish Midi Restaurant, headed by noted executive chef Michelle Mah, serves fresh, modern California cuisine and hosts a happy hour for a standing-room-only cocktail crowd, attracting both foodies and friends out on the town.
