It’s easy to lose your heart in San Francisco. Surrounded on three sides by water, the “City by the Bay” is like nowhere else in America. A unique, breathtaking location and a pleasing, temperate climate draw millions of visitors to San Francisco hotels to experience its irrepressible joie de vivre.
A tour with the charismatic guides on Alcatraz Island is a must, as is a visit to the Golden Gate Bridge and Park to take in the stunning bay vistas. Scaling the city hills by cable car to the summit of Nob Hill is also a classic San Francisco experience, offering more priceless views.
Unsurprisingly, seafood plays big on restaurant menus near our hotels in San Francisco. Fisherman’s Wharf lures visitors with the promise of excellent shellfish, while the eateries of Chinatown and Japantown spin intoxicating tales of the city’s ties to the East.
For a serious retail fix, head to Union Square, where big-name department stores and high-end boutiques are just steps from your San Francisco hotel. Hayes and Haight Streets explode with vintage clothing, 60s memorabilia and other eclectic offerings, and the hip clubs of the Mission District are the perfect places to show off your new purchases.
