Those who love to explore downtown San Francisco as much as they love to find new wines are delighted to discover Executive Hotel Vintage Court, just blocks from Union Square. From its stylish, yet cozy lobby, complete with a wood-burning fireplace, to its 106 rooms, each named for a nearby winery, the unique and historic boutique hotel exudes wine country charm.
In the morning the intimate lobby serves as a gathering place for many planning their day over morning coffee service. The hotel provides current listings of San Francisco wine events and wine store locations, as well as winery maps, guides, and tasting coupons for those heading out on the 30-minute drive to Sonoma and the Napa Valley. Wine lockers in the lobby give guests a spot to secure their treasures, and each evening between five and six, the wines of a nearby winery are served free of charge—often by the winemakers themselves.
Although the hotel has the character of a notable San Francisco residence, it is thoroughly modern in design and amenities. The contemporary color scheme combined with dark polished wood creates a chic environment for those wishing to relax after a day in—or out—of town. Guest rooms feature complimentary morning newspapers, wireless high-speed Internet access, thick bathrobes, and sumptuous bath products. An expert concierge service helps with recommendations for fun wine trail outings as well as trendy San Francisco restaurants. What’s more, reservations are always guaranteed to guests at the hotel’s acclaimed Masa’s Restaurant.
Masa’s has enjoyed international acclaim for more than 25 years. This Four Diamond rated restaurant boasts an amazing wine list that makes it a regular recipient of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. There are a staggering 8,000 bottles in Masa’s wine cellar—800 of which are considered by the Master Sommelier for pairing suggestions with any of the Master Chef’s entrees. All the charms of a wine country inn can be found at Executive Hotel Vintage Court.
