we are an Australian family visiting SF over Christmas for 7 nights and we have decided to stay in town, last year we stayed at Fairmont Ghiradelli, and we are looking at these hotels. They are a similar price and rooms would be:
signature room at Omni (no breakfast)
2 double with breakfast at Grand Hyatt
2Q deluxe tower Westin St Francis.
I am open to other suggestions and have also looked at Four Seasons, Intercontinental, Argonaut, Palomar, the Fairmonts, St Regis...
I would have liked somewhere with an indoor pool but FS, St Regis are 4x the price of the other hotels and as we wont really be there much as we will be out sightseeing I cannot see the value on this particular trip.
I would also love some advice on which restaurant you would recommend on Christmas Day please. We are open to a buffet or a la carte, but our children will be 4 and 6 but they do love dining and travel, but not somewhere like French Laundry iykwim?
