          Good value for the area. Close to Union Square and cable cars. Not walkable to Fisherman's Wharf due to the hills. Very clean and charming. Comfortable beds. Friendly staff. Bathrooms are small.

          Quiet, classic downtown San Francisco Hotel. Clean, neat, good bed and hot water after a hard day's night of walking around the City. One block off Union Square

          The hotel itself is quite dated, but they've made it really cute and as comfortable as possible. The staff are excellent - all the staff were brilliant...very helpful, very friendly.

          After checking out of the San Remo on Thursday, we took advantage of having the car out to visit some sites that are not very accessible by foot. Our first stop was Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill. It was built in 1933 and is named after Lillie Hitchcock Coit, who left money from her estate for the purpose of adding to the beauty of the city. She was …

We took a tour of the Warner Bros studio which was thoroughly entertaining. The way the studio economically reuses sets and scenes across multiple platforms was quite intriguing, and we were even afforded a chance to reenact a scene from Friends on the Central Perk set, which I killed. Expecting a callback anyday. We stayed a ...

          We left late in the afternoon continuing the drive to San Fransisco, arriving in the city in the early evening via the Bay Bridge.

          It was terribly foggy and a cold wind was blowing making the whole city look pretty foreboding. Our hotel is very close to Fisherman's Wharf and we have two rooms... Although the kids hate ...

It is an engineering marvel and quite stunning from a distance but when it's really windy and you are cycling across it, it was just a bridge! We stopped half way and took some pictures and were more than ready for the easy cruise down to Sausalito to get the ferry back to San Francisco. Very glad we did it but I wouldn't rush back to do ...

Feeling experienced by my preparedness I was ready to avoid the situation and had my eyes forward and body language showing I was not going to engage - going in a different direction to Ray. However, Ray was caught unawares and accidentally engaged with the man asking for money. He extracted himself politely and we kept walking until we met further along. It was very pleasant and we discovered a lovely modern and clean city plaza area which we will most likely ...
