If you're planning to stay in downtown and the Financial District, you can expect to find a profusion of luxury hotels with impeccable service. The Transamerica Pyramid is central to many attractions including the neighborhoods of North Beach and Chinatown, the Embarcadero, and easy walking distance to Union Square and beyond. It's definitely a good decision to rest nearby this towering city icon.
For the pinnacle in luxury, book a night at the Mandarin Oriental. The panoramic views of the Bay, the bridges, and the city skyline are breathtaking, especially from the 56th floor outdoor patio. Extremely personable staff makes sure you're well taken care of. Every commodious room has huge windows to take in the sweeping views of San Francisco. It costs a pretty penny but the location can't be beat, and amenities like the 24-hour fitness center, massage, yoga, and Pacific Rim dining options will satisfy even the fussiest traveler.
Le Meridien is another extravagant option for your business or pleasure stay. Expect views of the Bay Bridge on one side and views of the towering Transamerica Pyramid on the other. It's right next to public transit and the Embarcadero buildings. Expensive parking and nightly charges for Wi-Fi unfortunately part of the deal. Clean, contemporary, and comfortable best describes this modern hotel.
Another fabulous, upscale option is the classy Omni San Francisco. This incredibly beautiful hotel is perfect for a romantic stay. The room décor is elegant and no detail is omitted by the courteous staff. The walls are slightly thin, but again, the prime location makes many attractions easily walkable.
The Hilton San Francisco in the Financial District sits right on the edge of Chinatown, the Financial District, and North Beach. The views from the upper floors show off Alcatraz, Coit Tower, and the Golden Gate Bridge and the room's small balconies are an added bonus to enjoy. The hotel boasts Tru Spa, and the Chinese Cultural Center also inhabits the building.
For those on more of a budget, the Green Tortoise Hostel provides beds with the opportunity to make new friends. Backpackers flock here due to its central location and the variety of activities and day trips offered.
