The Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel
19 expert reviews
“While the Clift is deliciously notorious for its penthouse parties, tough design critics might find that some rooms are too cramped for sleigh beds, and some cabinets might've been bought at IKEA.”
– Lonely Planet
"The epitome of swish sophistication... Pricey, ultra-cool and almost disarmingly self-aware."
"Irreverent, unexpected, and surreal, its mind-bending and modern design is a little bit Alice in Wonderland and a whole lot of cool."
"Young trendsetters now flock here for overpriced monochrome lavender streamlined rooms with often-minuscule bathrooms, glamorous atmosphere, and a heavy dose of attitude." Full review
"The entrance is so nondescript here, you could walk right past it without a hint of what's inside, and that's exactly how the clientle—a mix of hipsters, music-industry types, and celebrities—like it." Full review
Some visitors have remarked on the thin walls and advise booking a room on an upper-level floor to avoid street noise.
