362 mil... Men nu är vi tillbaka i San Francisco.
Tanken var att lämna tillbaka hojarna i lördags men de hann stänga innan vi kom fram. Så det blev en tur till hotellet och ha dom i garage en natt. De sista nätterna hamnade vi i japantown mitt i San Francisco. Men nu till slutet av resan...

Sista morgonen på motellet började med lite …

Shopping Extravaganza

... for the other boys. Down Town had many tall buildings and is the hub for the financial groups. There was an interesting communication shell set up across the busy pedestrian path inviting people to take time out for a chat. A very San Francisco phenomena from the Summer of Love days. It is surprising that one could hear the conversion across the other side.

Macey's was my main target, working my way through floors of possible purchases I ...

... see the top of one of them sticking out from the older brothers bag. (PS Travel note. This plane we are on - Sunday PM is still to take us over Minneapolis then over the Great Lakes north of Chicago and Detroit.)

I think that this will be enough as we are now in New York and I am getting behind with my writing. One more SFO page to go, and you wont want to miss that!

Warmest greetings to all

... and racking up a tab everywhere we went. We even went to a Castle that had wine in it.

Around the back of this Castle we met a little man that was a long way from home. He didn’t seem to mind though as he posed for the photos.

... be appreciated. It was one of the only good decisions I made that week. Later that evening we drove to Grass Valley; a small hippy town in the mountains full of kindness, peace, beauty and happy smiles. For the next few days Paige and I went exploring when she wasn’t at work. We went to the astounding blue Lake Tahoe (which its bed has only recently been found and its depth is still unknown), a perfect emerald river running through the mountains ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Tomo, A Joie De Vivre Hotel San Francisco

    Enoyed the tomo


    Statyed at the Hotel Tomo 17-20 Aug 2007. Hotel was exactly as described on it's web site. Room and bathroom was spotless! King size bed comfortable and flat screen tv was a nice touch. Location in Japantown was quiet and with a bus stop right across the street everything was readily accessible. Only problem was on the second night there was no hot water, we notified the front desk and it was fixed by the next morning. Would defintely stay again and would recommend this to others.

    Loved the Tomo


    I don't usually take the time to write hotel reviews, but I wanted to share my recent experience at the Hotel Tomo. My wife, myself and our 2 year old daughter stayed at the Tomo for 2 nights in August, and we thought the service was very thoughtful and that our entire hotel experience was extremely fun and different from other hotels. The staff went out of their way to make us feel like welcome, including giving us a variety of helpful restaurant recommendations. Also, the rooms were cool, funky, and fun. I would recommend this hotel highly.

    Where's the manager?


    I am easygoing and helpful by nature and was happy until the second day when the shortcomings began to wear on me. Thus this list: What I would do if I managed the Hotel Tomo?

    Hotel Tomo was a good value


    Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. Rooms were newly renovated, clean, and nice size. Hotel staff was very helpful. Parking was not the most convenient as the garage is small and does not have enough have to park as a satellite lot a few blocks away....just park there early. The Mums restaurant in the hotel has good Shabu Shabu, but don't bother going there for breakfast

    Ok hotel but bad parking


    We just returned from a 2 night stay at this hotel. I chose this hotel for it's location and parking. We, two sisters, were attending a concert both nights and would be returning late in the evening. In all the ads for the hotel it says on site parking. When we arrived we were able to park in the underground lot, no problem. But, upon our return that evening the parking lot was blocked. I had to double park, run inside and ask what was up, they said the on site parking was very small so you had to go to another lot 2 blocks away! And I must add, the desk clerk was very rude about the whole thing. We did not appreciate having to walk through unfamiliar territory at 11 pm at night! It was not a comfortable situation. They have very lax security.

    A Fantastic Discovery


    We just spent 5 days in San Francisco, at the Best Western Hotel Tomo, and were extremely pleased with all aspects of our stay. Situated right at the edge of Japantown, which afforded an abundance of dining and shopping opportunities.

    Really cool hotel


    We stayed one night in this hotel because of its location near UCSF. We were happily surprised by the size of the room, by the friendliness of the staff, by everything! It was great. It's located right near Japantown - you might need a car or take public transportation to go places. Buses run great in SF. I would highly recommend this hotel! I would recommend this hotel to friends/family who need to stay in the city. Great find! Great deal!

    J-pop gem in lower pacific heights/ japantown.


    whatever you thought you knew about this hotel has all changed within the last few weeks. previously known as the miyako inn the hotel tomo is about as hip & cool a hotel you'll find in san francisco. first of all the neighborhood is clean & safe, void of all the panhandlers that seems permiate union square & the tourist trappings of fisherman's wharf. the restaurants in the area are great, r e a l japanese food in japantown & many other fine places to dine & shop at on fillmore street. now the transformation of the hotel is the true highlight. japanese pop-culture is the theme and it is tastefully stated in both the lobby and hotel rooms. the furniture is fun, funky & cheerful but the anime type wallpaper is quite the focal point (WOW). flat screen tv, ipod stereo, wi-fi are also a nice touches and most of all the price is about a third of what you'd pay for downtown. after enjoying a wonderful & very quiet stay here in may 2007 ( while repairs were made in my apartment ) i don't mind spreading the good word to tourists and the like. i might not have a need to stay at a hotel in san francisco anytime soon but i finally found somewhere for my friends & family to stay at when visiting me. i know they'll be more than comfortable at the hotel tomo.
