Where to stay in San Francisco

Exploring San Francisco

Northern California's largest city, San Francisco, is most famous for its Golden Gate Bridge, world-class dining, and status as one of the most progressive cities in the United States. Several sprawling suburbs may belong to the San Francisco Bay area, but San Francisco proper is actually a compact city on the Pacific Ocean and its namesake bay. Most hotels, like Ghirardelli Square's luxurious Fairmont Heritage Place, are situated in the city's northeast section, near the downtown area and the popular tourist attractions of Fisherman's Wharf and Chinatown.

Sightseeing in San Francisco

- Fisherman's Wharf

A cable car ride from Powell and Market ends at Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39 where sea lions bark and bask in the sun. Take a boat to the old prison island of Alcatraz or just fill up on fresh seafood from a seaside restaurant. Ghirardelli's Square chocolate treats are a sweet end to any trip. A stay near the wharf puts North Beach's Italian restaurants and City Lights Bookstore, made famous by the poets of the Beat Generation, within walking distance.


- Financial District

North of Market Street along the Embarcadero, the eastern waterfront of the city, is the Financial District. Bustling on weekdays, this area is a quiet oasis on evenings and weekends. Convenient for the Embarcadero BART, it’s an easy stroll along the waterfront to the Ferry Building for locally-produced food and a short walk from the busy open markets of Chinatown.


Transportation in San Francisco

San Francisco's public transit network is said to be more extensive than that of any other American city west of Chicago. San Francisco Municipal Railway, or MUNI, operates the city's famous cable cars and trolleys, as well as more conventional buses and the Metro subway. The Caltrain rail network travels between San Francisco and San Jose, while the BART network links the city with Berkeley, Oakland, and both major Bay Area airports. Cycling and walking across the city's hilly streets provides quite a workout.
