  • My title says it all. I used to live here and always enjoy these views. Parking can be a problem during the summer tourist season.  more »
  • We left the dock and took the road and many stairs to reach the top. Its very pretty with all the characteristic houses on wooden staircase. From the top you have beautiful views you SF and the Golden Gate bridge (if visible). You can also visit the Coit tower. Still memorable.

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.
