Map

Ah, the City by the Bay. Here, the old coastal magnetism of California’s Gold Rush meets its modern counterpart—the tech boom. In Northern California’s seaside hub, vintage cable cars and Queen Anne townhouses share the skyline with stunning high-rises and Spanish missions, and no neighborhoods mesh the old and new quite like San Francisco’s downtown area. As locals will tell you, this lovely location and cultural smorgasbord comes with an equally pretty price tag…but fortunately, our cheap hotels near downtown San Francisco offer an affordable place to stay in an exquisite city. San Francisco is a grand city on a small scale, and swift public transportation makes the entire region easily accessible. So, no matter where you book one of our hotels in downtown San Francisco, stand in the downtown Financial District and look out across the Embarcadero, where history floats on the morning mist and innovation reverberates through the beams of the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge.

Where to Stay by the Bay

With all the buzz about real estate in the Golden State, finding affordable hotels and motels near downtown San Francisco may seem daunting. But it’s not! Consider these guest-loved, budget-approved places to stay and breathe easy:

  • Warfield Hotel: Located just north of Market Street, Warfield is surrounded by culture. Stay a while and see a different performance each night at nearby arts centers like Golden Gate Theatre and Warfield Theater. When you aren’t peering through opera glasses, browse the collections at the International Art Museum of America. Each day begins with a complimentary breakfast, and with only 45 guest rooms, Warfield boasts personalized boutique service.
  • Serrano Hotel: Inspired by Moorish Spain, this classic, colorful accommodation is romantic and elegant—perfect for an affordable getaway with your special someone. Wake up to breakfast in-house and step outside just blocks from Union Square. Peruse the Contemporary Jewish Museum before an evening at Marrakech Magic Theater or SHN Curran Theatre, both just down the street.
  • Stanford Court : Contemporary and chic, Stanford Court is an affordable option in posh Nob Hill. Natural light floods spacious guest rooms, and a pillowtop bed will be your dreamy oasis after a day spent visiting Grace Cathedral, Chinatown, and the Cable Car Museum. 4-star accommodations include a 24-hour fitness center—if walking the San Francisco hills isn’t invigorating enough!
  • The Marker San Francisco: This is the place to stay when you want to live and breathe SF’s nonstop lifestyle. Located on the fringe of Union Square, The Marker is opulent and whimsical, with bold décor and luxury amenities, including Frette Italian linens, in-house breakfast service, and complimentary evening receptions—perfect for business networking and sharing stories with fellow travelers.

Savor San Francisco

There’s an old saying that if you want to get to know a culture, you sit down and eat a meal with the locals. When you visit San Francisco, that means you’re going to do a lot of eating. You can taste, touch, smell, and see the world in one city, so we hope you can wield chopsticks and roll Ethiopian injera.

Writer Benjamin F. Taylor once said, “San Francisco is a city where people are never more abroad than when they are at home.” And when you stay in hotels near downtown San Francisco, you’re right in the center of that experience.

No trip to the city is complete without a tour of the legendary Alcatraz. Explore the cells, listen to the stories, and plan your own escape during a visit to “The Rock” sitting in the harbor. From there, fill up on delectable cuisine at one of the seafood restaurants at Pier 39, and do a little shopping at its nautical-flavored art galleries—a framed image of the Golden Gate Bridge is a fine accent for any living room wall. Feel like doing a little more shopping? Book one of our San Francisco hotels downtown so you won’t be lugging your purchases back and forth.

As you plan a getaway to the Golden State, book cheap hotels in downtown San Francisco and all over the Bay Area with Travelocity. Get the best deals available with our price-matching guarantee: If you find a better price somewhere else, we’ll match it and make up the difference, so go ahead and order seconds of SF’s intriguing international cuisines.
