Best places to stay in San Francisco

The fog shrouded San Francisco or SF is home to all things quirky, innovative and trendy. Apart from the breathtaking views of the bay and its surroundings, the city thrives on its epic farmers’ markets, trend-setting culinary quests and a dominant tech innovation scene. There are several unique and charming neighbourhoods to explore and enjoy. If you’re visiting for the first time, you may want to choose from one of these areas to book your hotel.

Union Square

In the heart of the city, the bustling Union Square is full of boutique shops, gourmet eateries, theatres and art galleries. Many of the tourist attractions are in this area, so it’s a central location to stay while exploring the rest of the city. Consider The Inn at Union Square which offers plush, comfortable rooms, just a 2-minute walk from Union Square. Or try the Grand Hyatt San Francisco which offers luxury suites with incredible views of the city skyline and bay. Fisherman’s Wharf

This is a family-friendly area with street performers, historic cable cars, art galleries, museums and plenty of entertainment for all ages. Enjoy the hip, industrial-chic rooms and an urban sleek atmosphere of the Pier 2620 Hotel located at the crossroads of Fisherman’s Wharf and the historic North Beach. You can also consider the refined rooms and suites of Hotel Zoe on North Point Street, in the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf.

Nob Hill and Russian Hill

Russian Hill is largely a residential neighbourhood where you’ll find quaint shops and restaurants at every street corner. It’s also home to the famous Painted Ladies Victorian homes and the crooked Lombard Street. Nob Hill is a posh area, known for its high-end hotels and fine dining restaurants. Atop Nob Hill, stay at The Scarlet Huntington, a landmark boutique hotel with vibrant Oriental-influenced interiors and chic rooms with colourful accents. You also have the Fairmont San Francisco, a grand hotel with luxurious rooms and amenities on Mason Street. Enjoy the relaxed and comfortable rooms of Lombard Inn, just 800 metres away from the famed hairpin turns and steep hills of Lombard Street.

Financial District and The Embarcadero

There are plenty of waterfront attractions along this stretch and several piers that offer cruises to Alcatraz Island. Financial District features a large cluster of high-rises with both historic and contemporary architecture and it’s the commercial hub of the city. Buzzing with hectic activity during the week, this area is quiet and peaceful on the weekends. For the ultimate luxury, stay at the Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco or The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco.
