    Pricey by the standard of most North American cities, but reasonable compared to other offerings in SF's central areas. Simple, clean, and comfortable, some may be put off by the location near strip clubs. Safety didn't seem to be an issue as the streets were busy late into the night. Location is great for dining with all of Chinatown's culinary delights all around, and Little Italy a short walk away. The hotel is very strict with breakfast - we arrived at the breakfast room five minutes before breakfast was scheduled to end, only to find the door locked as we were told that it was too late to eat.

    ... left the bowl, but Junior and I are on a budget and saw that option as the equivalent of having a 99 ice cream and not eating the cone. There was nothing on the plate as we exited the café. Next up we had a quick photo or two on a tram whilst refusing to pay the high fee to ride it before clambering all the way up the imposing Nob Hill to get back to our hostel. After all the walking it was quite appropriate that we were about to get ready for another pub ...

    ... where they also apparently have "copy bags", but again its a "follow me" thing.

    We thought we'd have a look around for somewhere to eat on the way back to the hotel, and settled on Sears Fine Foods, a restaurant established in 1938. After looking at the menu in the window, and checking out what people were eating through the window, we decided on the "Sunday Special", which was Della’s Fried Chicken (whipped potatoes, green beans, milk gravy) and ...

    ... can spend hours strolling down a market, trying all the free samples and watching people, but there comes a time when you need coffee. Good thing Seattle is famous for its coffee. The first Starbucks is located on Pike’s Place market and there are plenty of coffee shops on every corner where they serve the best coffee. I am not that much of an expert when it comes to coffee, but Gerald is a real addict and so we tried as many café’s as our thirst and money ...

    ... breath as we went up and down steep hills, arrived safely at the Wharf. Again lots of people. First stop was for a "coffee". Not real good, where can I buy International Roast!!

    And in brief succession: Ghiradellis Chocolate Shop. Clam chowder in a bread bowl, California fur seals on pontoons at Pier 39 (must have been a couple of hundred at least!) Starbucks coffee (marginally better but...) more lit carts (had a nice chat). Because of abig line for ...
