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.

  • I am the kind of person who loves a good gift shop. And there's is beyond good. So I am in love with the moad
  • The exhibits here are always engaging. I went a couple weeks back and on exhibit was fascinating art work reflecting a noble Nigerian family. There was also a nice exhibit related to this idea of home and the relevance of home to a person's sense of identity. Very interesting. It's a must see and admission is relatively low! Just $10 for adults and $5 for students with student ID.
  • Amazing art on the top floor. Was a bit smaller than I expected but overall it was a great experience.
  • Small museum in a terrific building. You can see the entire place without getting tired. Exhibits were varied and interesting.
  • Not your ordinary menu selection, Museum of the African Diaspora serves up an exotic selection of treats at a familiar setting. Service is very friendly, and the waiter was very helpful when I asked him for direction to an obscure location. The African food is definitely memorable, with an egg and runny yolk inside a crispy exterior. The Spanish choices are more similar to American cuisine, but it's still well prepared. The bread pudding is just the icing on the whole dining experience.
