Carlos Melia - San Francisco

My week in San Francisco was full of fashion, hotels, restaurants, private events and a lovely simple day out exploring Sausalito, which was the perfect balance to a hectic week. The main reason of my trip, was to attend RUBINSINGERs my husband personal appearance and trunk show at Neiman Marcus San Francisco, and from there on, I built the itinerary and activities around.

Day 01 went this way. Arrival to San Francisco around 2.30PM from New York ( approx. 6 hours flight). Our car and driver was waiting for us to rush us to our hotel, the St Regis San Francisco, to check in and get ready to the private cocktail event co-hosted by Neiman Marcus and RUBINSINGERs at Dirty Habit. After the event, which finished around 9PM, our team enjoyed a great rustic Italian dinner at Cotogna, followed by some truffled delights at Relais & Chateux Restaurant Quince, next door. Time to call the day and head back to our hotel for a nice night sleep.

We checked in at our Astor Suite at the St Regis San Francisco. Corner Suites with 711 Square Feet and floor-to-ceiling windows featuring lovely views of San Francisco in the SOMA district South of Market. During our stay, weve enjoyed the following VIP perks I offer my clients when booking with me: Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability (excluding suite categories) + Continental breakfast daily, for up to two in room guests + Lunch for two in Vitrine restaurant, once per stay (excluding alcohol and gratuity) + Early check-in/late check-out subject to availability.
