I have a couple of questions regarding hotels and restaurants in the city...
My husband is turning 50 soon and I'm planning to take him away for a weekend in the city. (We live int he East Bay.) This will be our first trip away from our nearly-three-year-old twins. Between this being our first getaway and my husband's birthday, I want to plan something VERY special.
For a hotel, I am looking at Hotel Vitale or possibly the Fairmont. I'd like a hotel with a great view. I wouldn't say money is no object, but I'd like to keep it as close to $400 (or less) as possible. The Panoramic Suites at Hotel Vitale look amazingly perfect but at $700+ are out of my range. Any ideas for a beautiful hotel with a great view? I’d prefer historical/old-school but am open to something more modern, but nothing ultra-modern/minimalist. Any recommendations are appreciated.
For dinner, I’d like to go to Farallon. My husband loves seafood and adores all things ocean-related. I think he’d love the décor. However, I’ve seen mixed reviews about the food. I’ve also seen reviews that said it is VERY loud. My husband has some mild hearing loss so I’m a little uneasy taking him to a loud restaurant. Any suggestions? Again, I’d like somewhere really beautiful with great food. Seafood preferred, with a romantic ambience.
Any suggestions are appreciated!
