Hotels in San Francisco

Dreaming of a holiday in California? When it comes to hotels in San Francisco there’s plenty of variety, including ones that are tailormade to provide the city break experience you’re yearning for. Whether you're a fan of impressive architecture, a shopaholic, or an adventurous foodie, the perfect San Francisco Hotel awaits your arrival.

Are you blown away by impressive architecture? Then a stay at the 5 star Fairmont San Francisco is a must. This Beaux Arts landmark opened in 1907 and was given a starring role in the movie ‘Kiss Them for Me’. Film fans will also recognise numerous streets around the hotel from ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’, ‘The Last Black Man in San Francisco’ and numerous other movies. For getting around the city the streetcar stops on the hotel’s doorstep. If you’re especially interested in San Fran’s unique transport system, a museum dedicated to the history of the cable car is just a few minutes walk away. When it comes to eating and drinking some of the best options are at the hotel itself. The Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar has not only been called the best in San Francisco, the late Anthony Bourdain described it as the greatest in the world. 

As the name suggests Hilton San Francisco Union Square is adjacent to Union Square - the city’s high end shopping area, home to Tiffany’s, Gucci and Louis Vuitton. It’s also where you’ll find the iconic Macy’s store. Each year they sponsor the city’s largest Christmas tree, host Dickens Village and provide a movie-like Santa’s grotto experience, making it a dream destination for families. Despite boasting a central location Hilton San Francisco Union Square offers many of the luxuries you’d only normally get at beach resorts, including an outdoor swimming pool and a choice of bars and restaurants. If you’re hiring a car you can go for an electric option, as there’s EV charging points too.

Fancy a stay near the harbour? You won’t regret booking a stay at RIU Plaza Fisherman's Wharf. Not only will you be close to the departure points for ferries across the bay, where you can admire the Golden Gate Bridge in its full glory, you’ll be a short stroll from the sea lion observation point. If, like the cute little mammals, you love to eat fish, there’s a range of seafood restaurants for you to choose from. The hotel boasts an outdoor pool and to prep you for a day of sightseeing they offer a delicious American-style buffet breakfast, as well as a Grab & Go service.
