Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.

  • After a nice shuttle & walk on a sunny day, it's quite sobering to view the exhibits at the Immigration Museum. Very well done, nice outdoor information panels and setting. Do not miss.  more »

  • Angel Island, the Ellis Island of the West, has a fascinating history as well as very nice present. You can hike around the island, going to the top of the hill, and get amazing views of San Francisco, while imagining what it might have been like for the many (mostly Asian) immigrants who came through this way. make time for the little museum, too.
