The pinnacle of SoMa's museum district and a worthy rival to the nearby Four Seasons, this 40-storey hotel and condominium tower seemed to take forever to open, but now that it's here it has redefined luxury (and how much people are willing to pay for it). Guest rooms come with butler service, limestone baths, high-end finishings and high-tech fixtures; rooms on the sixth floor and above have the best city views. A combination of new and old construction, the property includes sprawling spa facilities with a heated indoor lap pool, the new Museum of the African Diaspora and two restaurants patronised by the city's elite, Aim and Vitrine.
