Motels in San Francisco with ceiling and/or headboard mirrors?

I know it's a strange request, but I was hoping to not call each motel I found on google and simply see if anyone knew off the top of their head; I wanted to know which motels or hotels in San Francisco have mirrors peripheral to the bed, a ceiling mirror and/or a headboard mirror. Thank you all, and I know the jokes are going to roll in

Well, I've been to a Drury Inn and Best Western and they didn't, and I did use google to no effect as far as 'advertising' those features.

Headboard mirrors seem dangerous.

Well, there's the old abandoned amusement park down by the wharf -- you can squat there with no problem. Just ignore Old Man Weatherby in his swamp-man costume -- he just wants to scare off the land developers.

Re: Motels in San Francisco with ceiling and/or headboard mirrors?

Pfft...expecting the motel to provide mirrors is an amateur mistake. Pros like myself always bring our own. You'll need an SUV, minivan, van, or bus to have the proper amount of space to transport the mirrors, but it's well worth it. I bring 2 each of: ceiling mirror, headboard mirror, and peripheral mirror, as you never know when a mirror might be damaged in transit or become broken/stained during usage. Be prepared. You and your partner(s) will have a much better experience if you plan ahead.

Re: Motels in San Francisco with ceiling and/or headboard mirrors?

Oh, and I think it goes without saying, but always bring the proper mounting hardware (including drywall/plaster anchors and various types of screws) as well as patching plaster to clean up after you leave. The cheaper motels won't care if you leave holes in the walls and ceiling, but classier joints will raise hell. Better safe than sorry.

I'll second Del Sol. It was a long time ago but I do remember there being a mirror somewhere "convenient", maybe a full mirror on the closet doors by the bed, or something. I don't know if that's standard in every room. There definitely wasn't a mirror on the ceiling or headboard. It's a great little hotel though. It was very reasonably priced, with a pretty good location and they also have a sauna.

Hey! Who put all these fish in this barrel? And somebody was careless enough to leave a shotgun right next to it.

Man, that's a weird request. The W hotel has mirrors on its headboards though, among other strange design decisions. I actually took a picture when I was there.

Come on, this is like asking if there are any hotel rooms out in the deep woods with deer trophies above the bed.

I went to a wedding in a small town with one motel that was located off of a fairly deserted highway. My room had an extremely creepy velvet picture of a clown above the bed.

Love it! How about a motel with coin-operated vibrating beds?
