Where Are the Best Places to Stay in San Francisco?

When you are looking for where to stay in San Francisco, it is best to consider the attractions you most wish to visit. Once you know where you want to go and what you want to do, it will be much easier to decide on your accommodations. Here are some of the best hotels in the most popular neighborhoods in San Francisco:

Union Square

New York can have Central Park, and D.C. can keep the National Mall. San Francisco has its own hub of history and high spirits in Union Square. Shop at upscale retailers, dine at inspired eateries, and even work on your Double Salchow at the outdoor ice-skating rink…weather permitting, of course. In short, it is San Francisco defined, in one open city block. Here are our favorite Union Square hotels:

  • Parc 55 San Francisco – Modern style and conveniences meet attentive service at Hilton’s newest venture into San Francisco. Enjoy a view of Union Square and Twin Peaks from your spacious guestroom, then enjoy a grab-and-go breakfast before you start exploring. After you’ve experienced the city from bay to beach, treat yourself to dinner at Pac 55’s Kin Khao, hailed by GQ magazine as one of the “best new restaurants in the U.S.”
  • Hotel Nikko San Francisco – Take in a jazz show at Feinstein’s, feast on Asian-inspired California cuisine at ANZU, and rent an exotic sports car—all without leaving the property. Unwind from your day downtown in your guestroom’s urban refuge with a pillowtop bed, thirsty bathrobe, and in-room massage. And, sleep soundly with the knowledge that you are contributing to helping to save the planet just by staying at this EPA Energy Star award-winning hotel.

SoMa

Tucked neatly between the Mission and Financial Districts, SoMa (short for South of Market) is the perfect neighborhood if you are visiting the city for either work or play. Visit the Cartoon Art Museum, take in a ballgame at AT&T Park, or experience the creative culture at Yerba Buena Gardens. We highly recommend this SoMa hotel:

  • Hotel Whitcomb – Venture back in time to this over a century old historic landmark. Having served as City Hall from 1912 to 1915, the Whitcomb is steeped in San Francisco lore. While the décor may be opulent and antique, the amenities are thoroughly modern. The stately grandeur of your guestroom is complemented by the innovative fare available at the Market Street Grill. And, a drink at The Tavern will help you harken back to Old San Francisco.

Nob Hill

One of San Francisco’s premier neighborhoods, Nob Hill is home to mansions once owned by railroad barons and gold rush champions. A stroll along its streets will take you past such sights as the Fountain of Tortoises in Huntington Square, the Cable Car Museum, and a host of impressive eateries. If Nob Hill is calling your name, book a room in this swanky hotel:

  • Stanford Court San Francisco – Don’t be fooled by the Stanford Court’s classic exterior. This boutique hotel is completely cutting edge once you walk through the lobby doors. Keeping with San Francisco’s digital dominance, the hotel offers business travelers and vacationers, alike, access to state-of-the-art technologies like a collection of MacBooks and iPads, free high-speed Wi-Fi, and Google Glass Explorer program. When you are ready to trade in the virtual world for some real-world, you can enjoy a good night’s rest in your gorgeous, well-appointed guestroom.

You’re ready to fall in love with sourdough bread and dim sum. You’ll spend your days shopping and your evenings with a glass of wine in one hand and the Golden Gate Bridge in sight. You won’t settle for just any accommodation. And hotels in San Francisco would never expect you to. Indulge yourself with a high-end suite along the water, or save your budget for Union Square designers and stay at one of the best cheap hotels in San Francisco. Then, prepare to be blown away by San Fran.
