San Francisco Hotels

San Francisco, known for the waterfront, the Golden Gate Bridge and the "crookedest" street in the world also has amazing restaurants and accommodations. Choose your hotel in San Francisco in the area of the city you where you plan to focus your holiday. From Victorian Bed and Breakfasts to urban high rises, hotels in San Francisco cater to every need and budget. And each of the various neighborhoods within the city has a full complement of hotels, bed and breakfasts, and even hostels to choose from. Standard rates at San Francisco hotels can range from under $100 to over $300.


Every neighborhood in San Francisco has a different feel and atmosphere to it. From Fisherman's Wharf and its renowned sourdough breads, to Chinatown, to the bohemian character of both Haight-Ashbury and the Mission Districts, guests at San Francisco hotels will always find something to interest them. Launch on a tour of the Alcatraz prison island from Fisherman's Wharf. Later the visitor can visit the Mission San Francisco de Asisor "Mission Dolores" in the Mission District, or take a drive down crooked Lombard Street. And travelers shouldn't forget to wander through Haight-Ashbury and conjure up visions of flower-covered hippies and Janis Joplin music on the Flower Power tour. Some of the best accommodations and amenities are available in and around Nob Hill and Union Square, at the Westin Market Street or the Hotel Nikko three blocks from Union Square. These hotels provide great access to the main upscale shopping districts of San Francisco. In addition, the historic Victorian buildings on Union Street are home to many contemporary art galleries. More budget-minded travelers might prefer the Best Western Tuscan Inn at Fisherman's Wharf, where they can walk to amazing seafood restaurants and watch street performers on every block.

San Francisco Quick Picks and Tips


Guests at San Francisco hotels visit many conventions yearly, many in the technological industries. From Oracle Open World at the Moscone Center, to the Northern California Bridal show, conventions are held regularly throughout the city.


San Francisco is known for food. Visitors shouldn't miss the Stinking Rose, where even the drinking water is flavored with garlic. And, of course, the sourdough bread and seafood on Fisherman's Wharf.

Major Point of Interest

Hotels in San Francisco have all the major attractions easily accessible by public transportation or foot. The attraction that no visitor wants to miss in this city is the Golden Gate Bridge, and guided tours are available.


San Francisco has wonderful places to shop in every district. Larger, high-end stores are available on Union Square, including Saks and Bulgari. Or wander over to Chinatown to shop for imports from silk to green tea.


Not only is San Francisco home to conventions, it is also a hotbed professional sports teams. Calling the city home are the San Francisco 49ers football team and the Giants Major League Baseball team. Hockey fans can look forward to the SF Bullswho hail from Daly City just south of San Francisco.
