The Battery, an impressive members-only social club in the Gold Rush-era neighborhood of Jackson Square, hides 15 plush hotel rooms that are available to the public. The handsome, upscale rooms sport contemporary decor, hardwood floors, and a tastefully stocked bar. All rooms boast huge modern bathrooms and views of SF’s skyline (some with outdoor areas). Best of all, hotel guests are considered resident members during their stay and get access to all club facilities. That includes a modern gym and spa, an airy ground-floor restaurant, and three bars. Pop in to the lavish Musto Bar with a hidden room that’s accessed by –what else –a secret bookcase lever.
