1560 Sacramento is a stately Nob Hill classic, constructed in 1907 as San Francisco rebuilt itself after the famous earthquake. The building started life as an upscale residence hotel – complete with an awning over the entry, linen service, a dining room, and, according to some reports, a doorman – before being transformed into apartments during World War II in order to combat the wartime housing shortage.
Now the building known as The Claire – as emblazoned in ornate script over the front door – enthralls residents with a mix of historic architecture and modern amenities. The façade features Art Deco touches and the lobby is defined by original, beautiful woodwork, as well as an elevator straight out of a Dashiell Hammett novel.
1560 Sacramento is innately walkable, blocks away from Union Square’s shops, Nob Hill’s historic Fairmont and Mark Hopkins hotels, dog-friendly Huntington Park, and other neighborhood landmarks. Its location has excellent bike lanes, and commuters love nearby access to ample BART and Muni options, as well as its proximity to the Financial District, Downtown, and North Beach.
