We all know that San Francisco’s architecture varies in style, ranging from Victorian and Edwardian to Art Deco and modern. Yet while the city’s landmarked architecture so often focuses on exteriors and facades, what about what’s happening on the inside? After all, as the saying goes, that’s what counts most.

So for this week’s open thread, here’s what we want to know: Which buildings in San Francisco have the most beautiful interiors?

Are you stunned by the Art Deco lobby of 140 New Montgomery? Does the Redwood Room at the Clift Hotel give you goosebumps? Or perhaps the French Neoclassical interior architecture of Salon Doré does it for you?

Tell us which buildings have the best interiors in the comments below, and feel free to share photos if you have ‘em. We’ll compile the best of the best in a forthcoming article.
