If you need room reservations, you must make these separately, through
the regular reservations procedure.
We remind you that all cancellations for room bookings must be
received by the Club at least 72 hours prior to your reservation
- For Owners using Owner time, a
night will be subtracted from your balance of available nights.
For Owners using Bonus time, a charge will be made to your
credit card for one night at the Bonus rate.
- For non-Owner Guests, a charge will be
made to your credit card for one night at the rate agreed to on
are no exceptions to this rule since a late cancellation may mean
that someone else was denied use of the room.

bought, usually 30 days in advance.

San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities in North America, if not the
world. It is certainly high on everyone's list of places to visit. It is
also a small city. Its attractions are located in dense concentrations
making walking tours very enjoyable and easy to do. While the city is
small and its attractions concentrated, San Francisco also has many
micro-climates and topographic differences. The city may be enshrouded in
fog on the west and north sides and basking in sunshine downtown at the
same time. The hills of San Francisco are as legendary in North America as the hills of Rome.
In addition, San Francisco is surrounded by beautiful countryside, vineyards
and wineries, coastline and Redwood forests, and islands in the Bay. Plan to
spend some time to visit the neighboring counties of the Bay Area.
Dining - reflects the diversity of the city
San Francisco is famous for its great cuisine and world-class restaurants
which reflect the cosmopolitan tastes of the Bay Area and California. No
matter what your preference in flavors, styles and ethnic cuisines, you'll
quite likely find it in San Francisco.
San Francisco is a visitor's dream. And the Club Donatello is the place
to start dreaming. Within a small radius you will find many of the City's
cultural, and scenic attractions. If you want to explore farther out,
public transportation and a car rental company are outside our door, as
are San Francisco's iconic cable cars.
San Francisco is the home of the 49ers and the San Francisco Giants. Across
the bay in Oakland are the Raiders and the Oakland A's. Fans of
hockey will have to travel down the San Francisco peninsula to San Jose,
in the heart of Silicon Valley.
There is more to the Bay Area than San Francisco. Redwood groves, vineyards and
wineries, scenic shorelines, amusement parks, art colonies with occasional
open studios, organic farms and artisan cheese makers and bakers surround
the bay. The technology giants of Silicon Valley are just down the San
Francisco peninsula in the southern edge of the bay.
San Francisco has world-class shopping at Union Square and at the San
Francisco Shopping Centre - well-known names like Tiffany's, Gucci,
Versace, Ralph Lauren, Saks, Macy's, Bloomindales, Gump's, Levi Strauss,
Nieman Marcus, Abercrombie & Fitch, Kate Spade, Coach, among many
others - are all within a few short blocks of the Club Donatello. For a
comprehensive overview of the shopping opportunities in our Union Square
neighborhood, visit UnionSquareShop.com.
