We stayed in a King suite, nice, clean and quiet with a European vibe. Terrific restaurants and bars all around, world famous City Lights Books a couple of blocks away, walking distance to the wharf, Chinatown and much more. Not inexpensive, but if it fits your budget its definitely worth a look!
We enjoyed our two night stay. The bed was very comfortable. We loved the neighborhood. Try Mama's for lunch on the opposite corner -- a great experience in casual food and fun.. Parking garage was quite convenient.
My wife and I spent the night at The Arbor Guest House so that we could visit the wine country. The young woman who greeted us was very friendly and very helpful. She made several suggestions as to where to visit and what not to miss. The breakfast the next morning was great, especially the fresh baked croissants. The bed was very comfortable and the decor was cozy. I would highly recommend this jewel in the valley.
My husband and I ended our honeymoon to wine country with 2 nights in San Fran. North Beach was a great neighborhood with bars and restaurants in walking distance and certain sights close by as well. Washington Square was very quaint and secure. Rooms were nice. Outside noise can be a little loud in the morning (what with bakeries nearby) however that's to be expected in a city. Front desk was very accommodating, allowing us to check in a little early and also arranged for a town car to the airport at 6 AM. Would recommend to others looking for a good value in a great, quieter portion of the city. Low score for dining as I have to enter something but we did not eat at the hotel.
Was pleasantly surprised by quality and variety of breakfasts' served as well as the nightly wine and snacks. Good job and much more quite sleeping that I would have guessed staying on such a busy/great street!!
