The Ritz-Carlton Club® and Residences, San Francisco
Offers Members the Ultimate Luxury Lifestyle

Ritz-Carlton, San FranciscoWhat better time to visit this international hub of art and culture for a long weekend or full week’s vacation than this summer? The season’s mild weather and variety of activities make it a perfect time to “enjoy the City like an insider”. 

Ritz-Carlton Club® and Residences Members will be doing just that from their pied-à-terre perfectly situated in the heart of downtown at 690 Market Street — just steps away from world-class theater, museums & galleries and some of the finest culinary treats in the world.

The beauty, romance and excitement of this dynamic city have inspired songs, movies and generations of artists from Otis Redding to Alfred Hitchcock to Armistead Maupin. And every true San Franciscan knows that this vibrant city’s best kept secrets are not the typical tourist destinations such as Fisherman’s Wharf and Ghirardelli Square.  The Ritz-Carlton Club’s legendary concierge staff has been kind enough to share a sampling of their “must-see, must-do, and must-taste” list with Luxury Fractional Guide.

If art is your passion, be sure to catch the Frida Kahlo exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art from June 14th – September 28th.  If music is more your style, try the Fillmore Street Jazz Festival July 5th-6th or Jerry Day, honoring Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead, on August 3rd.  If you’ve always wanted to try swing dancing, now is your chance:  free lessons are available every Sunday at Golden Gate Park.

Hungry?  For true California-French cuisine, The Club recommends Jardiniere.  For Italian, Quince on Octavia Street is the place to try.  For an after-dinner treat, head to Mitchell’s Ice Cream on San Jose Avenue.
