• The Ritz-Carlton is the sine qua non of luxury hotels, offering near-perfect service and every possible amenity. Even if you can't afford a guest room, come for the mind-blowing Sunday brunch.
  • Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco is the perfect combination of opulence, hipness, and class. I can't afford it either, but I sure love to hang out at the bar and pretend.
  • The Loews Regency San Francisco is perched so high above the city that the fog rolls in below you. Take in the view from your glass-wall bathtub. Maybe I really did die and go to heaven?
  • The St. Regis Hotel has these touch-screen remote controls that let you operate everything in your room—without leaving your bed. Add a fabulous two-floor spa, and why would you ever want to leave?
