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.
