Exploring the city through my stomach

A travel blog entry by prawn0


... Surprisingly I was a little peckish so i ordered a clam chowder. When in Rome right? I was pleasantly surprised by how light the chowder actually was but it was so cute in the little sourdough cob. We caught up on the days activities there and then we were off to ghirardelli square, which is a chocolate company. The day was just getting better and better. We looked through the gift shop which had soooo much chocolate everywhere you looked. But then we went to the little ...

Heart left in San Fran...debt left in Las Vegas!

... and listened to music, there was nothing but desert and farms to look at anyway! We didn't arrive in San Fran until 7pm and we just got a taxi to the Green Tortoise hostel! First impressions were great, seemed very homely, friendly, very central and reminded me of Atholl Palace with its carpet and old fashioned décor! Neil and I were in a 7 bed dorm but we had a little room away from the others which was perfect for us! We went for a walk and ended up in ...

I flew down the west coast of America...not a cloud in sight until we reached San Francisco then in rolled the fog.

Met up with the trip early in the morning. There are 13 of us on the tour National Parks Emcompassed run by Grand American Adventures. The trip takes 28 days and we visit 13 parks.

After the normal paperwork ...

Day 14: Hello San Fran!

A travel blog entry by bugsy71


We started today by reluctantly checking out of the Signature. We were going to just catch a cab to the airport, but when the doorman at our hotel offered us a waiting stretch limo for just an extra ten bucks we thought what the hell, we're still in Vegas - though I think Josh is getting quite accustomed to this form of transportation! After a short flight we arrived in San Francisco. The two floor apartment we're renting here at 181 O'Farrell St ...

... around the island on a guided tour. I thought it was done rather nicely. The directions on where to walk were not confusing, the man narrating was interesting to listen to, and the stories he was telling were fascinating. You could even walk into several of the cells that held some of the most famous prisoners. Of course at the end of your guided tour you gave back the head sets, and were hearded into the gift shop to buy useless **** to give to people back home. We went back to ...

    Couldn't be more perfect


    As a member of the Select Registry, it's almost a guarantee of a great stay. This inn is no exception. Location is fabulous; quiet, close to where you want to go, right near the best restaurants. The other reviews I'm sure cover all the requisite compliments.

    Wonderful hotel!!!


    To fellow travelers, You are in for a treat if you stay at the Washington Square inn. Recommended by our daughter who lives on Filbert street in San Francisco. When we arrived we were so pleased by this quaint hotel, from booking the room by calling from the website, everyone was so friendly. The rooms are beautiful, comfy beds, beautiful antiques, quality touches in bedding and decor. The bathrooms are wonderful also, everything you need at your fingertips! The breakfast is soooo yummy! You have a choice to have it brouhgt up to your room or join the other guests at the table. We had ours in our room every morning a wonderful spread of choices all delicious! And not to mention the daily wine and cheese at 5:00 , was a wonderful thing to look forward to when you came back for the night! I would stay here again and again!!! The rooms were quiet and so comfortable!! You could not hear the other guests right next door! We felt wonderfully cared for and delightfully pleased with every aspect of this hotel. The day we left we met the owners, they work hard to bring you the best possible stay, they make sure you are well served and comfortable, they even helped us with our bags!!! We will definitly come again and be sure to order the granola at breakfast-amazing!!

    An Experience Unto Itself


    The Washington Square Inn provided the perfect setting for my first real trip to San Francisco. Picture a beautifully manicured, historic building across from the green, grassy area of Washington Square. This is the picture you see at breakfast every morning while you are looking out of a series of large windows. There are groups of individuals of all cultural descents who are doing Tai Chi or, later in the day, walking dogs. All around the square are stores, restaurants and bakeries which are Chinese, Italina, French, and American. What a wonderful tapestry that combines all of these picturesque peoples into one scene.

    Charm of San Fran


    Washington Square Inn's real treat is beyond attentiveness, comfort, cleanliness, nutty granola, croissants, crisp fruit and living orchids. And its true pleasure is not the close-up view of Telegraph Hill's Coit Tower out one window or peering left and sighting the Peter and Paul steeples of the Catholic church where a hometown boy, DiMaggio, his picture was snapped with Monroe. Guests frequent a bakery, breakfast nooks and fine eateries a mere football lateral away and gravitate among Monterey pines to the fairway openness of the Square. All the above are tasty icings but my joy derives from an energy about the place supplied (at guest's option) in modest increments by the host and helpers. It's an energy promoting guest-to-guest chatter that's abetted by wine, cheese and olives at five every evening; a what's happening discussion that reignites at breakfast coffee when seated at the long table with a view of Tai Chi participants on the sidewalks of permagreen and sometimes foggy Washington Square.

    A Perfect Location Inn in San Fran


    Our stay at the W. Square INN IN in SF was just so enjoyable. This is a lovely hotel. Rooms and service were brilliant. We liked the availability of cocktails and hors d'oeuvre every evening. And such an excellent freshly prepared breakfast each morning. Locality was just right, next to the pleasant W. Square, and beside loads of restaurants in Chinatown and Little Italy. From here one can walk all over the city, see museums, go over the GG Bridge, with its stunning views, climb the many hills (up and down) !!!! And generally have a great time. In other words, we definitely can recommend this hotel - hands down! Our advice: Go there and enjoy! Tom and Maura from Dublin, Ireland

    Intimate and elegant


    We walk in to the front lobby of the Washington Square and are welcomed by friendly staff. The inn is elegantly decorated right down to the smallest detail. The food is delicious and the service is impeccable...Bravo!

    A nice place in our favorite SF neighborhood


    We love the North Beach area of SF, so this hotel was perfect for us. Yes, our room (with a queen size bed) was small, but it was ok for our 3 night stay. The room was quiet and the furnishings lovely. A nice breakfast, but I wish they had some protein, like hard-boiled eggs or cheese. They have a lovely wine and cheese spread in the evening, which along with breakfast is an opportunity to meet some of your fellow travelers. We will undoubtedly stay here again on our next trip to SF.

    Rare hotel find in North Beach


    Most of San Francisco's hotels are concentrated in the Downtown, either around Union Square or in nearby areas. There are relatively few places to stay in the neighborhoods of San Francisco, to get a better feel for what local life is like. The Washington Square Inn in North Beach is one.

    A little gem in the heart of North Beach.


    Friends from France recommended this lovely little Inn Tucked away in the heart of a wonderful San Francisco neighborhood. Surrounded by incredible dining, across from the park where the famed Telegraph Hill parrots roost. and from the church where Joe Dimaggio and Marilyn were married. Up the street is Coit Tower and a few blocks from Fisherman's Wharf. The delicious breakfasts, were enjoyed at the dining table while viewing Washington Square Park. The room was well appointed with an exceptionally comfortable bed. The friendly and helpful staff made our stay very pleasant.
