    SF's Grande Dame #1! Such history - 1906 & Caruso, Woodrow Wilson, Warren Harding, even Khruschev. Even though the structure is a total replacement for the original destroyed in 1906, it retains the elegance of the Gilded Age. Attended many events and conferences here. Good service for same. Garden Court is breathtakingly beautiful. Yet to try High Tea or the ...

    Good! - 78% of guests recommend

    Westin St. Francis may have the best hotel location in all of San Francisco. Directly facing Union Square, it’s front side forms one of the four wall of buildings enclosing the park. During Christmas, it’s even more beautiful as the building is illuminated in a dramatic fashion such that it serves as a wonderful backdrop for photos of the Union ...

    The Fairmont San Francisco

    Excellent! - 85% of guests recommend

    The Fairmont is a lovely historical hotel in San Francisco. As with many hotels in San Francisco, it is an older building, so expect some wear and tear typical of older hotels. However, they do a decent job of maintaining the building.

    Hayes Valley Inn is what one might expect from a “boutique hotel.” Situated in Hayes Valley, the hotel is really close to amazing restaurants, three of which are next door (Dobb’s Ferry), at the corner (Chez Maman) and across the street (Absinthe). Then there are all the artsy shops and eateries down Hayes Street to the west. Take the 21 ...

    Hotel Vertigo is one of my favorite hotels in San Francisco. That’s a fact. Just thinking about its cinematic history and the beautiful decor inside just gives me chills. One of the greatest filmmakers of all time, Alfred Hitchcock, filmed parts of the film of the same name here. Look down the stairway from the top floor and you’ll get ...

    Nob Hill Hotel is a beautiful and classic historical building located close to Union Square and within walking distance to the Polk Street Corridor. The decor is antique/ vintage so not all the rooms are the same, but it they all have a little bit of classic beauty of the Victorian era. Not a lot of people can say they've ...

    Pay attention here, because it can be a bit confusing. The Cartwright Hotel Union Square is the hotel formerly known as the Larkspur Union Square, and more prior formerly known as the historic Cartwright Hotel. History has a way of repeating itself, and the Larkspur folks had the right mind to restore the historic name to this beautiful San Francisco ...

    Situated on the border of Union Square and the Tenderloin, the boutique Hotel Mark Twain is a breath of fresh air. The location is really ideal since it’s so centrally located, and on a quieter side street. The Tenderloin is easily avoidable. The lobby felt comfortable, warm and modern. Free Wi-fi is available throughout the hotel, and a computer and ...

    Very Good! - 82% of guests recommend

    San Remo Hotel is a quaint and charming European style hotel that's in the heart of North Beach/Fisherman's Wharf. Rooms are cozy and the decor takes you back to a different era, which makes perfect sense because the building was built in 1906, after the San Francisco earthquake that took down/burnt down most of the city. You can feel and ...

    To stay at the Marines' Memorial Club, you need to be a member of the military, so it is not open to the public. However, if you are military, this is a great deal. While the hotel is not the nicest in the city, it is a great bargain. Rooms are substantially discounted over the typical Bay area hotels, and ...

    I am instantly transported back to old San Francisco when I'm here. From the gorgeous guest rooms to the history of the Top of the Mark, I have this feeling of reconnecting with what it must have been like to be in San Francisco in the 40s. The staff is so overwhelmingly friendly and welcoming, it's ridiculous. My favorite kind ...

    Who says you have to spend a pile of money to be cultured in San Francisco? We love this hostel for its own history and culture. The Green Tortoise has been around for decades as a hostel and bus line, and you can still take a bus trip throughout California, the US, and beyond. Plus, the building is historic (check ...

    Very Good! - 80% of guests recommend

    This mid-century motel in the Tenderloin is a famous historical pit-stop for rock bands and movie stars. I love the architecture and lay-out, with rooms circling an oblong pool with a mural at the bottom. The Phoenix also features a cocktail bar on the first floor that often features guest DJs or themed parties during the summer.

    This hotel is lovely! It is older and retains its historical charms even as it's fairly well updated. Could use a pool, but I'm crazy for swimming in hotel pools on trips. Not everyone's priority. DIRECTLY across the street from the amazing Sears Restaurant (go!), super friendly staff, accommodating to the point of "I'm not worthy!" (but I am & ...

    In Pacific Heights, this is one of those classic little San Francisco boutique hotels that feels more like staying in an early-20th-century luxury inn than a modern hotel. Rooms are petite but come with all the amenities you'll need. The hotel is walking distance from shops, cafes, restaurants and more. The neighborhood is so upscale that safety is hardly a ...

    Gorgeously restored, this former US military officers' house is now a 22-room bed-and-breakfast right in the middle of the greenspace of San Francisco's Presidio. By staying here, you get quick access to city neighborhoods but without the hectic urban feel. Check the inn's website for special deals and promo packages.
