Why stay at a hotel when you can stay at a legend? Combining historic, Renaissance-influenced architectural splendor that includes an opulent lobby, sky-high ceilings and a sweeping staircase begging for grand entrances, Kimpton Sir Francis Drake is where vintage glamour and the ideal Union Square location intersect. Inside you’ll discover a world of unapologetic opulence: cut crystal, luxe fabrics, rococo swirls, all as heady as the signature cocktails and 21st floor vistas served-up at our retro chic Starlight Room. Then there’s our creative rustic Italian-inspired cuisine -- the perfect pairing for dining and special events. And when it’s time to retreat to your urban haven, guestrooms and suites evoking period décor and brimming with Kimpton-style amenities sweep you off your feet into refined comfort.
