Hotel Frank in San Francisco, CA

February 23, 2011 by

Be bold! That’s how this exciting, fast paced world goes. Hotel Frank in San Francisco is just the place to embrace “you!”
Formerly known as Maxwell Hotel San Francisco, the newly re-named Hotel Frank offers Union Square accommodations with a bold cosmopolitan style right in lively Union Square in San Francisco. Surrounded by the contemporary hip-meets-classic Thomas Schoos’ design, the hotel atmosphere is conducive to being the many sides of you: from straight-forward business, to flat-out fun, to out-right relaxation. Here, the guest can loosen your tie or shorten your hemline. Frank is free-thinking and fashion-forward.
At Hotel Frank San Francisco the world is literally at your fingertips. Just outside the front door, Union Square shopping is steps away in fashionable Union Square; or dash across the street to catch the second act of a Tony Award-winning play, in the popular Theatre District. Savor a delectable bite at the hottest new San Francisco restaurant, or hunker-down with room service in your own cozy, well-appointed room to put the finishing touches on that winning Power Point presentation.

As in fashion, every good makeover capitalizes on the strengths of classic elements, and the renovation of Hotel Frank is no exception. Award-winning interior designer Thomas Schoos brilliantly re-interpreted the old and new elements of the 100 year old hotel into a seamlessly integrated blend of contemporary and time-honored design.

Simply stated, Hotel Frank is bold and beautiful. It’s a fashion-forward thinking design statement in the making. Like a pin-striped suit or vintage Rolex in fashion, some elements of interior design are timeless. But at Hotel Frank, “time-less” is boldly redefined. Here, the changing styles that have influenced San Francisco through the ages are artfully synthesized into a contemporary, diverse reverence to stylistic change.
In this new interpretation, “time-less” reflects iconic nods to the inspiration of artful design throughout the decades – from the sumptuous, turn-of-the-century Beaux Art classicism, to the tailored lines of 40’s Art Deco. From retro mod 60’s chic, to hip, new millennium styling, the hotel comes alive with a harmonious blend of ageless and up-to-the-minute shapes, textures, and colors.
The hotel is anchored with the unique, classic and eye-catching houndstooth pattern found in the bold carpet design, lobby walls and elevator cabs. The lobby pops with an exciting and sculptural juxtaposition of sharp lines, curved edges, and fanciful surfaces.
Like the simple black dress, the houndstooth pattern is further accessorized in the guest rooms. Gilded picture frames cling to the walls like a vintage brooch, the emerald green crocodile print seating cubes and headboards capture high-style elegance like the hottest Manolos, and the whimsical, bulbous glass light fixtures dangle delicately from the ceiling .

Hotel Frank amenities include custom furniture, meeting space, entirely non-smoking, pet friendly ($25 non-refundable cleaning fee, pets under 50 lbs), complimentary Wi-Fi , business workstation in the lobby , “Max’s on the Square” Restaurant on premises, eco-practices , flat-screen TVs, signature robes , iPod speaker docks, dual cordless phones and access to nearby high-end Fitness Club ($15 passes available).
The guest can also choose to be bold and upgrade to The Bold Level at Hotel Frank. It is located on the 8th floor and offers unique features such as extra high ceilings and oversized arch windows on the front of the building. The floor also features the Parlor Suite, our signature Bold Suite.

Hotel Frank’s 2 Penthouse Lofts offer the ultimate BOLD indulgence: SKYLINE and URBAN.
The Skyline Loft features a private terrace, living room with sleeper sofa, dining area, and a luxurious King bedroom with a striking soaking tub set upon a raised marble slab. This suite also features a fireplace, carerra marble bathroom with sleek glass enclosed shower, flat screen TVs, cordless telephones, and complimentary wireless internet.
The Urban Loft has a very residential loft-like appeal & features 2 private roof-top terraces, a King bedroom & dramatic bathroom with his & hers sinks and a large white soaking tub, and large walk-in closet. The Urban Loft also contains a separate living room with access to the 2nd terrace and a 2nd carerra marble bathroom. Flat screen TVs, cordless telephones, and complimentary wireless internet are also included.
So, dare to be you, or dare to be different: from utterly responsible, to decadently indulgent. The straight-forward truth is that at this San Francisco Hotel, you can be what you want, have it the way you like it, or change your mind at the drop of a hat.

    The workers at Hotel Frank have called for a BOYCOTT of the hotel.

    The new management, brought in by Wells Fargo bank, refuses to recognize the union contract, and is abusing its workers. The National Labor Relations Board has charged the management with violations of federal labor law, including firing and disciplining workers for participating in union activities.

    There are regular PICKET LINES at the hotel, and a STRIKE could happen at anytime.

  2. There is nothing chic about crossing a picket line of workers with serious grievances.
