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.

  • Great value for just $10. Tour the ships at your own pace. Great view of Golden Gate Bridge. Audio available using your phone. Nice variety of ships.  more »
  • My teenage son really wanted to go to the Maritime National Park and on a whim we walked up to it and decided to go in. We spent 2 hours there and loved touring the boats and the view of the Golden Ga...  more »
  • First visit in a long time. Went around 11:00 on a Saturday. Not crowded and it was a lovely day. The ships are educational and fun and it's great they are being preserved. Also went to the Art Deco b...  more »

  • It's easily reachable by bike or car or bus or ferry. You can roam around here and enjoy the view. There are few blocks which shows the maritime props in details, if you like then you can spend some time there.
  • This is place is really special. I enjoyed it a bunch. Great prices too!
  • Good beach for children, it's sheltered and the waves are gentler, played her as a child and caught the tiny crabs hiding under the rocks that came to the bay in ballast water.
  • Uhmm the last (recently added pics) are actually of the president McKinley monument at the Panhandle park, which is across Baker St. from the San Francisco DMV ~ which is adjacent to Golden Gate park (city & county of SF), --not-- Golden Gate National Park - someone in locations messed it up. Its a serenely peaceful place to hang out and read something to relax with, except when something is going on that causes a ruckus. Or when too many pot-heads are up wind and they decide to start lighting up. Regrettably lots of recreational pot smokers come to this place, at all hours. To pollute the air, I am sorry to report.
  • A small National Park Service site next to Fisherman's Wharf. The site contains a maritime museum and the opportunity to tour some historic ships! Definitely worth an hour of your time.
