Things to see in San Francisco



San Francisco is the envy of the world for its lively cultural scene. Catch a star-studded show pre-Broadway or the latest offering from a famous playwright in the SHN Orpheum Theater. The stunning War Memorial Opera House, a fine example of Beaux Arts architecture, is home to the highly acclaimed San Francisco Opera and Ballet companies, while symphony concerts featuring world-famous soloists take place in the adjoining Davies Symphony Hall. View priceless artworks in the neoclassical Palace of the Legion of Honor in pretty Lincoln Park, which houses a breathtaking collection of European art. Once you’ve satisfied your craving for culture, pursue a thirst of a different kind with a day trip to the wine valleys of Napa and Sonoma. Sit back and enjoy the rolling countryside, visit California’s top wineries for tastings, and learn how the state’s viticulture has taken the world by storm.

5-star hotels in San Francisco



With such a wide range of 5-star hotels in San Francisco, you’ll be spoiled for choice. The city welcomes visitors from all over the world and prides itself on knowing just how to treat them. Top-class service coupled with the last word in comfort characterizes San Francisco’s best five-star hotels.

Where to stay in San Francisco



Stylish Ghirardelli Square houses many of the top 5 star hotels in San Francisco, with stunning views over the bay. Named for the iconic chocolate factory that once occupied the site, the square overlooks the Maritime Natural Historical Park and is close to the upscale seafood restaurants of Fisherman’s Wharf. The historic Financial District is known for its landmark buildings that evoke the city’s glorious past—reflected too in its ritzy hotels with old-fashioned personal service. A good choice for 5-star accommodation in downtown San Francisco is the area around Union Square—within easy walking distance of some of San Francisco’s best shopping malls.

How to get to San Francisco



Most international flights arrive at San Francisco International Airport, one of the busiest hubs in North America. The Bay Area Rapid Transport (BART) network operates a direct service to downtown and beyond. For hassle-free transfers direct to your hotel, consider pre-booking a luxury limo shuttle that will meet your flight and help with heavy luggage too. Many 5 star hotels in San Francisco run their own airport shuttles, so ask for this service when you book your accommodation. Getting around this compact city is easy by “Muni” rail and subway, while licensed cabs are plentiful and reliable, should you wish to be brought from door to door.
