Four Star San Francisco hotels

Renowned for its laid-back lifestyle, temperate climate, stimulating culture, and wonderful cuisine, San Francisco typifies the American dream. Yet in many other ways this pedestrian-friendly, cosmopolitan “city by the bay” breaks the mold. From your first glimpse of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge through the early morning mist, you can tell there’s no other US city quite like it. And it won’t take you long to discover why Tony Bennett’s not the only one who left his heart here.

Things to see in San Francisco

Get a memorable first impression with a ride on one of the famous cable cars that once formed the city’s principal public transportation network. The three remaining lines have now been designated a National Historic Landmark—take the Powell-Hyde line to navigate the serpentine Lombard Street and be rewarded with great views over the bay. Wander through leafy Golden Gate Park to the de Young Museum, housing one of the most important collections of American art in the world, as well as high-profile touring exhibitions. Informative audio tours are available to enhance your enjoyment. Combine dining and sightseeing with a sunset cruise around the bay, passing looming Alcatraz Island, the rolling headlands of Marin County, and the twinkling downtown skyline, while you help yourself from the on-board buffet. Or stroll along atmospheric Fisherman’s Wharf to take your pick of the best seafood restaurants in San Francisco and sample delicious local wines.
