San Francisco Hotel Insider
Touched by fog and cradled by the Pacific Ocean, San Francisco is the historic city along the California coast known for so much more than the Golden Gate Bridge. From attractions like the city’s colorful Victorian houses to the cable cars ding-dinging past views of ... read more
Lombard Street and Fisherman’s Wharf, the City by the Bay has much to offer any visitor.

San Francisco Hotels
San Francisco offers accommodations that suit any budget or lifestyle. The young and chic flock to the W Hotel San Francisco, where hip décor and a trendy nightlife can be found. Atop Nob Hill lies the elegant Fairmont San Francisco, built just before the 1906 Great Earthquake, a palatial hotel that houses the ever-exciting Tonga Room tiki bar. Within the Westin St. Francis, a historic hotel along the edge of Union Square, you’ll discover chef Michael Mina’s renowned restaurant, Bourbon Steak. For drinks, head to the elegant Redwood Room in the Clift Hotel. The Palace Hotel San Francisco is a historic designated landmark. Even if you don’t stay for a night, you can stop by and get a guided tour led by volunteers.

Things to do in San Francisco
San Francisco’s obsession with gold began during the Gold Rush of 1848, when speculators from around the world sought their fortunes in the Western frontier. Now the Golden Gate Bridge, perhaps the city’s most popular attraction, stands majestically over the mouth of the Bay where their ships once entered. In Golden Gate Park, a family-friendly nature destination spanning over 1,000 acres, you’ll find hiking trails, hidden monuments, playgrounds, sporting facilities, and museums like the de Young Museum and the California Academy of Sciences. Have a picnic in a hidden garden or rent a bike for a ride; there’s enough here to fill an entire day’s schedule. For a date with some animal friends, head to the San Francisco Zoo near Lake Merced and discover a wide variety of wild creatures. Or you can take a stroll to Pier 39 to check out the sunbathing sea lions while you savor some local seafood paired with signature San Francisco sourdough. When you’re done, explore the many novelty shops and fun restaurants of Fisherman’s Wharf. Listen for the chiming bell for your chance to partake in something truly San Franciscan: a cable car ride. Crisscrossing through the city, the historic mode of transportation takes travelers through popular neighborhoods like Chinatown, the Financial District, Union Square, and Nob Hill. From the waterfront, a quick ferry ride can take visitors to top destinations like Alcatraz, Angel Island, and Sausalito. From under the Oakland Bay Bridge, boat passengers can spot the illuminated AT&T Park at night, where the San Francisco Giants continue to please and “torture” baseball fans. As the cultural center of Northern California, San Francisco’s attractions continue to exhibit the artistry, progressive thought, and offbeat mindset of the city, a first-class destination born from a once-lawless gold-mining town.

    If your budget allows it or in need of a splurge, the best place to stay in San Francisco is at The Fairmont San Francisco Hotel, part of the same hotel chain as The Plaza in New York. The shooting location for The Rock and many other prominent movies, The Fairmont is the epitome of old Hollywood glamour, grandeur and ...

    Came here for a party once at XYZ. Service was great and their Bloody Marys are pretty good. Prices are high, as one can expect from a W Hotel. I know the bar area is a popular spot for swankier locals as well as visitors. Located conveniently near Yerba Buena Gardens, staying at the W Hotel gets you easy access ...

    The public spaces at this property are exceptional and it is hard not to fall in love with the hotel bar, the Redwood Room. Service is adequate and the location isn't too far from Union Square. Unfortunately, the rooms themselves are pretty unimpressive. I found the white and muted purple color scheme to be a a bit drab. I also ...

    The Palace Hotel is perhaps the most significant hotel in San Francisco. Before the Great Quake of 1906, it was here that all the hot shots and bigwigs would dine. The great Italian tenor Enrico Caruso stayed here during the tremor that leveled the city, and ran out soon after, vowing never to return to San Francisco. "An 'ell of ...

    When the St. Regis first opened in San Francisco six years ago, I heard the lobby bar was a new hot spot. Upon my evaluation at the time, it certainly was. Today the lobby continues to welcome locals and travelers for refreshing cocktails. If one craves more than just cocktails, the back of the lobby houses Ame, a restaurant that ...

    Very nice hotel, restaurant, and conference rooms, but the bathrooms in the rooms are dated. Shower is small and water pressure isn't great. Not the greatest views, but if you ask for a bay view on a high floor it will have nice views

    I got lost many times in this hotel - and it's not just because I have a bad sense of direction. The Hilton in Union Square is enormous. They often host conferences here just because of its large capacity (and because there is a Starbucks in the lobby that can keep people fueled). The rooms are standard size, comfy and ...

    This hotel is within walking distance from Yerba Buena Gardens and Moscone Convention Center, which makes it an ideal place to stay for the business traveler. It is also home of The View Lounge, located on the 39th floor. I highly recommend going here in the late afternoon/evening to take in a libation and a panoramic view of downtown SF.

    There is something very regal feeling about walking into the lobby of the Mark Hopkins. Soaring ceilings, huge crystal chandeliers - it feels like stepping into a scene from a 20s gangster film. Overall we had a good stay here. The rooms were small but nice, with great views over the city. The beds were pretty comfortable. Service was solid.

I really enjoyed the windowside desk in my room ...
