  1. Thankyou for this article. I hope people are finding your website and renting the great pent-houses you have here. My favorite, just going by looks, was 900 North Point Square. I’ve lived in the United States my whole life and I never went to California. So, that is something I will have to do. I’m on the other side of the country, in New York, but it’s a pretty fast plane ride to go there. 

    Huntington Hotel really stood out, due to all the red coloring. It looks very luxurious. 

    I also liked Hotel Zeppelin because of the bricks and the “rustic” look. I think that’s the word for it, anyway. Thanks!

  2. Very good synopses of some beautiful luxury accommodations! I especially like the Hotel Drisco because of the sights to be seen within a very short distance. So many places and such great scenery everywhere! All the hotels you covered sound great, though, and it would be hard to narrow it down to just one for a vacation or even a short visit. Thanks for providing the information.

  4. Thank you so much for this nice post, I find it really helpful and informative, I have heard a whole lot about San Francisco ranging from it been a populous city in California to the many luxurious hotels all around. I think I will visit on of the places you mentioned in my next vacation. 

  5. Traveling is nice but having a great place to rest your head is absolutely beautiful. I must commend the fine suggestions of hotel you have given here and frankly these are the best I have come across so far in my search. A group of friends are traveling to San Francisco and have sought for my assistance in getting a good place to stay. I’ll love to give them these suggestions as it matches thier description of a nice place they explained to me. Best regards.

  6. Wow all these places look so beautiful to spend a night in. Thank you for sharing this review on the best hotels in San Francisco. Is San Francisco a safe place to go for visitors? I have never been there but have been thinking about travelling there. Where would you suggest a first time visitor to go in San Francisco?

    1. Hi Nice Gal Nikki and thank you for the comments. San Francisco is generally pretty safe, but as with any major city there can be crime. Just make sure to avoid The Tenderloin area to the south, and stay clear of Oakland. Be sure to visit Nob Hill and Union Square as a first time visitor. Hope that helps 🙂

  7. I visited the beautiful city of San Francisco just four week ago. It was exciting and it took a lot of energy to keep up with the pace of the city. I’m a country bumpkin so the hussle of a big city is vastly different in comparison. So, next time I visit the city, I will be looking for a hotel that blocks all the noise of the streets, but is still central to the city. The hotel we stayed in while we were there had a great retro vibe, and was over a hundred years old. However, I am somebody who is far more comfortable and better rested when I can re-energise for the next days antics, in a space that can block out all noise but still have the views of the city. Is this asking too much? What would you recomend?  

  8. San Francisco has always been my long lost big city to which I always wish to explore for long. Thankfully you have added a touch of luxury for me concerning what to lockout for when I am heading to this place. All the hotels you have mentioned here are all top notch and would be definitely a top luxurious treatment to be in Amy of them. I particularly like the hotel Drisco. It looks very elegant

  9. Oh, this is great. Your post is needed to be seen by many people so they can check out this many options you have here. I like the Hotel Frisco because it has so much good places around. I’d be going to San Francisco very soon and I think that’s the penthouse I’d go for. Thank you for a through insight.

  10. Website is very informative about hotels you can find in San Francisco,I’m very grateful to have stumbled upon this because next year am planning a trip with my family to go there.What are the odds of that?Of course some of them are a bit pricey and out of my budget but I will definitely refer this site to my partner for her advise

    Thank

  11. Huntington Hotel is definitely the goto hotel for me on this platform if ever I’m asked to choose from this list of the best hotels in Dan Francisco and believe me when I tell you that I would give a lot just to stay in this cozy environment just for one night. It is really looking so awesome and  I like the environment and where it is situated too. Maybe if we were to have our luxury tour during our get together party at the end of the year, maybe we would be able to lodge in here. It really oozes respect and elegance

  12. Amazing thanks so much for sharing. 

    I particularly like the hotel Nob Hill. It looks like it’s a great location and the features in the hotel sound unreal!!

    We actually just visited San Fran in June so I will certainly check this out for our next trip there. Thanks again for such a great review

  13. Wow, you’ve all of a sudden made me want to visit San Fran. I’ve never had an interest until now! I did not realize that there was so much to do there, this article was really informative. And the hotel are absolutely beautiful. Extremely luxurious. I think I need to start planning my vacation now!  

  14. I was in SF for an event this year march, and I lodged at hotel drisco. It was one of my most favorite hotel experiences. The location is so fabulous and the service and amenities are second to none. They provided free internet, coffee service, sumptuous breakfast, wine and cheese happy hour! There are free water bottles also in the room in glass bottles that are complimentary and now my favorite on the go bottle.
    Would come back to this awesome hotel in a heartbeat when in SF!

    Regards.
