  • Beautiful, quiet outdoor mall that's great to get a few hours of safe, calm rest if your homeless. I found at least four outlets to charge up. Water fountains and open restroom. Really one of my favorite spots inside the city to rest & reset.
  • Shopping, Food, Coffee Break, and most of the time I walk through here just for the pure enjoyment of the terraces and gardens or at least the variety plants and flowers and large and small sculptures. Almost a different experience every time. There are nice places to just sit and chill or meet up with friends. There are also a couple of pedestrian bridges to One Maritime plaza. I could walk and linger around the whole area for at lease a hour.
  • Still like to come here. As a kid the parents would take us here all the time and I havent really been in a while. Its nice to see that the area has been upgraded.
  • Great spot for a wide variety of dining options, from quick bites for lunch to upscale dining. Check out the happy hour at Sens (but get there early).
  • Parking available, not in such a crowded area (like downtown), nice area to walk around & shop/enjoy, park next door.

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.
