Where to Stay, Eat, and Play in San Francisco

Where to Stay, Eat, and Play in San Francisco


Where to stay: San Francisco’s hotel scene is as diverse as the reasons for visiting the City by the Bay. Whatever your desire, we've got the place for you.

Just off the Embarcadero, the cool and collected Hotel Vitale exudes a relaxed comfortable style fit for any urbanite. The location makes it easily accessible to the downtown business district as well as to the city's diverse neighborhoods.

History and nature buffs looking to stay within the city limits will appreciate the opening of the Inn at the Presidio this April. The hotel is set within the National Park site, so guests can relax and unwind as nature ensconces them after a long day.

If you’re looking to spread out away from the hustle and bustle, Cavallo Point’s bayside location is ideal. The compound has both historic and contemporary lodging options, a culinary school, an award-winning restaurant and a healing arts center and spa.

For a seaside break with striking city views, the Waters Edge in the quaint town of Tiburon, brings the bay to your backdoor.

Where to eat: As a certifiable foodie mecca, it’s difficult to choose between so many options. We love…

In the North Beach neighborhood, the rustic brasserie Park Tavern serves delicious food in a beautiful location. For the epicurean, take a culinary tour de force at Atelier Crenn or

Commonwealth, a harmonious blend of fine dining with the grit of the Mission.

Maven is the ideal spot for a casual way to pair food and libations. The small, seasonal plates are creatively paired with beer, wine, or specialty cocktails. Urban, upbeat, and unpretentious, Frances serves up fresh, seasonal, and French-inspired Californian cuisine. Where else can you get a good house wine and only pay for what you drink ($1/ounce)?

Then, whether you are an ice cream junkie or curious foodie, don't miss a visit to B-Rite Creamery & Bakeshop. The artisanal flavors and combinations will keep you coming back for more.

Where to play: There is more to see than the throngs of shoppers at Union Square or Chinatown. Taste the ethnic flare of the city in the Outer Richmond or the café scene in sunny Potrero Hill. Check out the arts district in Yerba Buena or stroll the streets in upscale Presidio Heights.

If you haven't had enough fresh air — it's contagious in this city — ferry over to Angel Island and take in the city views. For something more robust, drive out to Point Reyes and venture out on one of the many hikes for sandy beaches and ocean views.
