A two day schedule of meetings, lunches, dinners and a decadent afternoon escape to SFMOMA oh, and the Noah’s Ark Monsoon rains last week, inspired me to stay in the city overnight. Brilliant solution for peninsula dwellers.
I’ve stayed at Taj Campton Place a few times and have always loved this petite cozy property, chic style combined with the convenience of Union Square – Campton Place makes a perfect mini escape. Much of the square construction has been completed – so do consider making the hotel your base to explore this desirable shopping and dining mecca.
Easy valet arrival despite the drenching downpour, met a friend in the Campton Place Bistro Bar before we moseyed to MOMA in a drizzly mist. I highly recommend the tasty tuna tartar – the sizzling hamburger is always divine, however, I was headed to Perbacco that evening, thus just a delectable bite. Union Square is an excellent location for walking – easy access to MOMA, sitting at the base of Nob Hill, an added al fresco exercise attraction, include an early morning climb up those steep hills and secret stairways, it’s the perfect antidote to an Italian dinner before lunch meetings! Taj Campton Place has always been a favorite and this brief escape was just what I needed to recharge, adding this destination to my Travel Mantra list.
I loved my perch on the 17th floor in the Presidential Suite – oh my, I should have never left and just ensconced myself for the weekend! My friend came upstairs for a peek and we discovered my kitchen and office that I missed on my quick luggage drop. The Presidential Suite is absolutely lovely and would enhance a family or small group StayCation in the city. Think theatre, museums, fine dining, combined with a comfy home away from home.
Love the attentive staff at the hotel and adore the two Michelin star Campton Place restaurant, French classical cooking techniques, seasonal ingredients and flavors from South Asia are integrated into several different prix fixe menus, by Chef Srijith Gopinathan.
After wandering MOMA for three blissful hours, we found ourselves back in the snug Bistro Bar at the end of the day to enjoy a hearty splash of Malbec. Cozy bar, perfect for lingering over intimate conversations and delightful dalliances!
