FAQs about hotels in San Francisco

An Icon of Liberalism

Home to one of America’s icons – the Golden Gate Bridge – San Francisco is a liberal city where life is very much for the living.

Surrounded by water on 3 sides, the city's spread over steep hills that make for great photo ops. And none better than the zig-zag Lombard Street, seen in many a film. Even more famous are San Fran's iconic trolleys climbing the hills – a little touristy, but still worth a ride.

In the middle of the bay, Alcatraz island is known for the notorious criminals once imprisoned there. Even if you don’t go inside, the views of the bridge and city are unparalleled.

Nowhere is life in San Francisco more laid-back than on the Pacific beaches. Rent a bike and head out there, passing through the huge Golden Gate Park, before returning to sample some fresh seafood at Fisherman’s Wharf. Don't miss the clam chowder served in bread bowls! Chinatown also has a great selection of mid-range restaurants.

As you fly into San Francisco Airport, look out for the exclusive homes lining the Bay Area. Whether you want a more independent stay in apartments, luxury San Francisco hotels or cheap hostels, has something for everyone. Be careful though – you might just leave your heart here!

    San Francisco is slowly going back to the charm it had pre-...

    San Francisco is slowly going back to the charm it had pre-Covid era. This city experienced difficult changes like any other major city that made it out of the pandemic barely standing. There are still empty commercial spaces as a result of the closures, but there are still working establishments and new ones popping up. Great to know my favorite eating spots are still around along with other places that I saw that weekend. We saw the area full of foreign and local visitors for business (conventions, etc.) and pleasure (events, tourism). The working weekday crowd is not exactly the same as before and that has surely led to the business closures. The homeless people who hang out on the streets are few where it's busy with foot traffic and events. The further away you go from central locations, the more street wanderers will be encountered. Union Square is high-end shopping spots, but one can find their smart-spending niche in big stores like Macys and Ross nearby. Many food options, though certain originals are missing. A simple google search for options is at your fingertips and include the nearby hotels and their food spaces. Happy to see the originals that still exist : rooftop Cheesecake Factory, old-time breakfast favorite Sears, Mel's Diner, King of Thai Noodle House, Max Opera, Lori's Diner. What's new is the street hotdog carts around the Union Square at night- that is a must try! Well-placed hotels with parking is hard to come by and depending on the purpose of your visit, maybe you want to be closer to the action. So prepare to consider nearby parking garages, or well-lit street parking especially at night which is free depending on the time slot. My usual go-to for a parking garage with decent rates is Ellis O'Farrell and Sutter for proximity to Union Square. Beyond this area of San Francisco lies so much more!

    The Red and White boat cruise was very nice. The sightseeing cruise tour allowed us to capture great views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the awesome San Francisco skyline. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at The Fog Harbor House, delicious seafood with a great view!

    San Francisco is a great, great city, and suffering currently from a massively overblown reputation for an out-of-control street-people situation. I live in Vancouver, have recently visited Portland, it feels to me those situations are worse but you don’t hear the same alarm? Fantastic food, very walkable (though hilly) shopping, museums, views, San Francisco’s charms are famous and true. My favourite US city by far.

    Enjoyed the hop-on-hop-off bus and recommend for initial orientation. We got off at the Presidio and enjoyed walking around that structure. It's much bigger and more interesting than I expected. Went back the next day to explore the Science Center which is awesome. Great place for kids to explore. Public transit is very good and inexpensive. Thought the Embarcadero was worth seeing but overall disappointing. Very touristy and somewhat run-down. Despite the variety of businesses, it seemed sterile and lacking any kind of real vibe. Maybe just a slow time of year but I wouldn't bother going there on a return visit. Vancouver restaurant prices are high but the restaurants here are as high or higher. Tipping is expected everywhere, even if service is nothing more than ringing in an item you bring to the counter at a Grab 'N Go.

    Alcatraz and the beach area close to the Golden Bridge were very nice. I appreciated the public transport (at the US level it was fine). I did not liked downtown because of weird people, sometimes under drugs.

    Number 2 best transit system in North America after New York City; however, the BART is too pricey and unlike the SFMTA MUNI, does not have single or multi-day passes to use the entire system on a flat-rate, unlimited use fare. Too pricey for Canadians!!! -rh

    Tea/cordial time in the afternoon was great as was coffee in the mornings. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Walking distance to Union Square and many restaurants in the area. The room was spacious (2 bedroom suite) and the decor was wonderful. The older theme fit the hotel and its historic nature. It felt like a bed and breakfast but without the breakfast. All in all it was a wonderful stay and we will definitely stay there again when we go back next year.

    The location a block from Union Square was ideal. The Curan theatre is across that street and Grace Cathedral is up the hill. The Warrick provides a good value for the area, where many rooms are in the $500 range. This may seem superfluous, but the in-room HVAC unit was quiet enough to sleep. So often those units are so loud, that one has to choose to be comfortable or sleep. Maybe the best part is the Tapas restaurant on the main floor. Bota was fantastic.

    I found this place in a travel blog written by SF locals, and I’m so glad I did. As a single female, I felt safe in the area and in the hotel, which was one of my main criteria. The hotel was charming, and the staff incredibly friendly. They offered a complimentary wine and cheese in the evening and then breakfast in a cute lounge with fireplaces. It was east walking distance to explore Union Square and China town.

    - Location: Just a small walk to Union Square. So it's the hotel best for the location. - House Keeping: The Asian janitor we met in the elevator while check-in was very jolly and gave us many good recommendations on where to go and eat. We met him during the checkout too and thanked him. - They arranged a coffee maker for us in the room.

    The rooms and views were amazing. My bed was the best bed I ever slept in - it was like sleeping on a cloud. Room was spacious (although bathroom was tiny) and clean. Hotel was in a good location not far from Union square and very short stroll to public transport. We absolutely loved it here and would come back.

    Great price for a no frills hotel located near Union Square. Not the nicest neighborhood but conveniently located in downtown SF. Quite. Clean. Very nice staff. Valet Parking was over $50 but I guess that is the going rate in SF. They could have put more towels in the bathroom but graciously provided when asked.

    Best stay in San Francisco. I travel once a year to SF and have stayed at pretty much every hotel. This is by far the best. It’s newly built, modern, clean and you can sleep at night with no noise which never happens in Union Square. The staff are amazing too and has a hip rooftop.

    sleeping in Union Square allows you to visit many tourist sites on foot. San Francisco is a relatively quiet and peaceful city, and although very much downtown the hotel offers rooms away from traffic's noise. The history behind this premise is honorable and you feel kind of safe.
