We've now stayed here twice while visiting San Fran. It is an extremely well appointed hotel with a spa-like feel. We love the location since we can walk right to the Ferry Building as well as that it's close to BART. The food in the restaurants is good as well (we've had both dinner and breakfast) if you don't feel...

tripperella: Thank you for your kind words and for deciding to stay with us once again—we appreciate your loyalty! I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed the ambiance of our hotel as well as our location and views—the new installation of the Bay Lights has been a hit with our guests as we do have front row seats!...

This is an hotel geared towards the business community rather than the holiday-maker. The location is near to the financial centre and quite a walk from shops, etc. Our stay (3 nights) was good, though we were overwhelmed by an evening 'event' on our last night - obviously a business conference of some kind. Breakfast was a bit of a...

I had the opportunity of enjoying one of the suites in the this hotel that overlooked the bay and bay bridge. One of the nicest rooms I have stayed in.

A lovely stay at this hotel in SFO. Stayed on the recommendation of a local for both biz and pleasure. The business portion was booked into one of their interior facing rooms, and it was just great for what I needed - spacious, clean and a good wifi connection. For the last 2 nights of my 4 nights I upgraded...

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
