What are the best luxury apartment rental amenities in San Francisco? – SFGATE

This luxury apartment is for rent in San Francisco on Craigslist.
San Francisco has no shortage of luxury apartment buildings. These high rises, typically sheathed in glass and outfitted with all-white interiors accented by stainless steel appliances, are known for their amenities. A 24-hour doorman, expansive rooftop decks, dog runs and even working spaces have become commonplace perks. And as rental prices remain lower than pre-pandemic levels in the Bay Area, many apartments are still offering deals to lure prospective tenants — and the perks might be getting more lavish.
One convenience that’s popped up a few times when pursuing Craigslist rentals lately is “valet waste service” — aka someone will come and collect your garbage for you and get rid of it. No more heading to the building trash chute; instead, someone from the building’s management team will deal with it for you.
When reached on their automated chat service, one building dubbed Potrero Launch that offers the service couldn’t provide details on how often it was included or, presumably, if you can still throw out your trash on your own, too.

While someone taking out your waste sounds great, we’ve seen other buildings that offer everything from rooftop pools, rock climbing walls, outdoor kitchens, butterfly habitats, music rooms, valet parking, libraries and wine cellars. NEMA, a luxury apartment building in SOMA, won the Best Amenities Award by the San Francisco Apartment Association two years in a row. In Nov. 2020, it was offering three months of free rent plus a bonus offer of your choice — such as free personal training sessions or a donation to your preferred charity — to sign a lease. 
These buildings often charge above market rate for their units. “Our analysts found that the more amenities a property had, the more expensive it tended to be,” a spokesperson at Zumper said. “Buildings with more than the average number of amenities were 16% more expensive than those with less.”

A two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment at Potrero Launch has access to a rooftop lounge, a 24/7 gym, a yoga studio and a “zen” garden. There’s also a “social lounge,” a dog run and bike storage available. Coveted and rare in-unit S.F. amenities like in-home laundry and air conditioning are also included.
The Craigslist listing is currently offering four weeks of free rent, but it’s worth noting there’s no parking available. It goes for…drumroll…$3,999 per month! Zumper reports that the average rent for a two-bedroom apartment in Potrero Hill is $4,188.
