    Palace Hotel, A Luxury Collection Hotel, San Francisco
    San Francisco, CA
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1811 reviewsTripAdvisor (1811)

    The Palace Hotel first welcomed guests in 1875 as the world's largest and most luxurious hotel. But the earthquake of 1906 destroyed the property; the building that stands now was constructed in 1909. Still, the Palace wins guests over with its historical charm: The lobby draws attention with marble floors and high ceilings, and the guest rooms house more contemporary furnishings (alongside amenities such as high-speed internet access). But to truly experience the Palace in all its timeless glory, sit down to afternoon tea underneath the glass ceiling and crystal chandeliers of the Garden Court. (For dinner, head to the Pied Piper Restaurant, which serves traditional American fare.) There's also a pool and fitness center on-site, which is perfect for those looking to recharge. Guests love the luxurious interiors and appreciate the cozy guest rooms. The staff also get a thumbs up as well for their warm, welcoming attitudes. What's more, as a member of the Luxury Collection hotel family, the Palace gladly welcomes guests looking to pay with or earn rewards through the Marriott Bonvoy program.

    Loews Regency San Francisco Hotel
    San Francisco, CA
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 680 reviewsTripAdvisor (680)

    Formerly a Mandarin Oriental property, the Loews Regency San Francisco Hotel offers sweeping views of the San Francisco skyline from its perch in one of the city's tallest buildings. Housed in the top 11 floors of the 48-story tower, accommodations offer views of the city or the bay. Recent guests said no matter what the view, the spacious rooms offer the ultimate luxury with amenities like goose down bedding, Italian marble bathrooms with soaking tubs and complimentary Wi-Fi access. When you're not in your room, you can take advantage of the light-filled fitness center or the fully equipped business center, both open 24 hours a day, or relax with a treatment from the on-site spa. When you want to explore the city, you can make use of the house car, which is complimentary during morning commute hours. In the evenings, grab a bite at The Bear and Monarch, the on-site restaurant. Recent visitors said the quality of cuisine and exceptional customer service were worth the high price tags.

    Grand Hyatt San Francisco

    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 5522 reviewsTripAdvisor (5522)
    Free WiFi

    Located a mere block from Union Square, the Grand Hyatt San Francisco offers easy access to the city's most popular sites (not to mention a variety of transportation options, including the cable cars). Recent visitors say that in addition to being convenient, the hotel's location also affords fantastic views of the downtown area. The Grand Hyatt's 660 recently renovated guest rooms boast warm orange and white decor and pillow-top beds, as well as flat-screen TVs, minifridges and free high-speed internet access. Previous guests attribute their positive experiences at this hotel to a number of factors: For some, it was the bistro-style American cuisine served at OneUP restaurant, while others give it all to the location. And most guests save some credit for the hotel staff, saying that the customer service here was right on point. Because of its brand ties, the Grand Hyatt San Francisco participates in the company's loyalty program.

    San Francisco Marriott Marquis
    San Francisco, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 7118 reviewsTripAdvisor (7118)

    Just off Powell Street near the Yerba Buena Gardens, the San Francisco Marriott Marquis sits within easy reach of the city's transportation circuits (including the legendary cable cars), making it a good home base for visitors planning to cover a lot of ground. And when you need to take a load off, you'll find the Marriott's guest rooms cozy, with LCD TVs, pillow-top mattresses and high-speed Internet access. For a quick bite to eat, previous guests highly recommend grabbing a drink and some appetizers at The View Lounge. This rooftop restaurant's giant floor-to-ceiling windows give visitors expansive views of the bay. For something a little more filling, head to Bin 55 Restaurant for plates piled high with Continental cuisine. And should you need to burn some calories, this Marriott Marquis property houses a fitness center and an indoor pool (not to mention spa services). Keep in mind that Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points by staying here.

    The Westin St. Francis San Francisco on Union Square
    San Francisco, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 585 reviewsTripAdvisor (585)

    Towering over Union Square, the mammoth Westin St. Francis San Francisco on Union Square can be differentiated by its history (it first opened in the early 1900s). Visitors can choose to bed down in one of two areas: the Landmark Building or the Tower Building. Rooms in the Tower Building are more modern in style while rooms in the Landmark building retain a historic feel. No matter which building you're in, you'll find your accommodations outfitted with the Westin brand's signature Heavenly beds, flat-screen TVs, minifridges and high-speed internet access (for a fee). The Westin St. Francis is also home to The Oak Room Restaurant, previously a men's bar in the early 1900s, and the Clock Bar, located near the hotel's iconic grandfather clock. Today's travelers also have access to a 24-hour fitness center and a business center. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Kimpton Sir Francis Drake
    San Francisco, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 3.5 based on 3739 reviewsTripAdvisor (3739)

    Exceptional service defines San Francisco's Kimpton Sir Francis Drake Hotel, ideally located near Union Square. From the front desk employees to the doormen, recent guests say the staff consistently impresses visitors with its friendly and professional manner. And the physical structure, particularly the lobby with its gilded ceilings, achieves a regal atmosphere that guests relish. Scala's Bistro and Bar Drake also make sure that visitors want for nothing, providing gourmet treats (made from seasonal, local ingredients) and drinks. Recent travelers claim that their fairytale stays at this Kimpton brand hotel were only disrupted by noise (coming from the outside surrounding area) and the somewhat small room size. But even despite the somewhat cramped conditions, most travelers found the accommodations to be visually appealing – with rich jewel tones and retro furnishings –and the in-room amenities, such as flat-screen TVs and iHome stereo systems, to be convenient. The hotel also provides high-speed Internet, which Kimpton Karma loyalty club members can access for free.

    Free WiFi

    Located in San Francisco's Chinatown (and just a short walk from the infamous Dragon Gate and Union Square), the boutique Orchard Garden Hotel invites guests to relax in its eco-friendly digs. The property is a LEED-certified hotel, and its accommodations are decorated with natural wood and soft neutral colors. Rooms and suites are stocked with work desks, LCD flat-screen TVs and beds draped in Egyptian cotton linens. After a good night's sleep, travelers can enjoy breakfast at the on-site Roots Restaurant. The Orchard Garden Hotel also has a dedicated sales and catering team to assist with meetings and events, while the concierge can recommend San Francisco dining spots and team-building activities. Past visitors were impressed with their stays, noting the hotel's comfortable beds, standout service and great location as reasons they would return. But keep in mind that this property does not offer amenities like a pool or spa.

    The Westin San Francisco Airport
    Millbrae, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 3.5 based on 684 reviewsTripAdvisor (684)

    Less than 3 miles southeast of San Francisco International Airport and about 15 miles south of downtown San Francisco, The Westin San Francisco Airport in Millbrae is a convenient jumping-off point for red-eye fliers. Each of its guest rooms comes with a flat-screen TV, 24-hour room service and white tea-scented bath amenities, and deluxe rooms offer views of the San Francisco Bay. Although most visitors report a comfortable stay, some note that the room decor –characterized by beige hues and crisp, white bedding – is starting to look a little tired. Internet access is also available throughout the hotel for an additional fee. Also on-site are a fully loaded fitness center and an expansive indoor swimming pool (complete with a hot tub). Come dinner time, Grill & Vine can satisfy your craving for classic American cuisine. And when you need to catch your flight, you can take the complimentary shuttle. Recent guests with cars, however, groan about the hotel's nightly parking fee. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf Hotel

    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 3.5 based on 4670 reviewsTripAdvisor (4670)

    It's easy to see why this Sheraton hotel would be a hit with leisure travelers (families especially): Just a few blocks from the hustle and bustle of Fisherman's Wharf, this property sits within walking distance of many San Francisco must-sees, including the Musée Mechanique, Pier 39 and the ferries to Alcatraz. But location isn't the only thing recent guests rave about – the customer service here earns high praise. As far as rooms go, the Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf offers visitors plenty of space to kick back and take a load off. Rooms are dressed in bright turquoise and yellow hues, and each one comes with a flat-screen TV, the brand's signature Sweet Sleeper bed and high-speed internet access (for a fee). But be warned: previous guests say that street noise can quickly ruin a good night's sleep, so make sure to request a room away from the streets. When you're not out on the town, take a dip in the heated outdoor pool or work up a sweat at the fitness center. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Taj Campton Place San Francisco

    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1437 reviewsTripAdvisor (1437)

    Sitting about a block northeast of Union Square, Taj Campton Place San Francisco bills itself as "one of San Francisco's most prominent landmarks," and it has welcomed guests for more than 100 years. However, those who visited recently aren't quite sure what to make of this historic 110-room property. Travelers are quick to praise Taj Campton Place's location at the heart of the city, saying that getting to and from major attractions was a piece of cake. On the other hand, some guests claim that Taj Campton Place is starting to show its age, especially in the guest rooms. Although each accommodation comes equipped with amenities like flat-screen LCD televisions, Bose Wave sound systems and Nespresso machines, visitors say that the beige and white decor feels tired. If you're not happy with your room's appearance, head to the open-air fitness center to take in the city views, or seek out a change of scenery and some fine California cuisine at the Michelin-starred Campton Place Restaurant.

    Located on the northeastern tip of San Francisco's peninsula, the Hyatt Centric Fisherman's Wharf offers comfortable amenities within reach of the city's biggest tourist draws. All of the hotel's 316 guest rooms come with 47-inch flat-screen TVs and Keurig coffee makers, as well as minifridges and complimentary high-speed internet access. While travelers appreciate the well-equipped rooms, some grumble about the hotel's nightly parking fees ($59). On the other hand, the modern American fare served at Brick & Beam, the hotel's on-site restaurant, has garnered approval from previous visitors. And those traveling with kids appreciated having access to the property's heated outdoor pool. Because this property belongs to the Hyatt hotel family, loyalty club members can earn or redeem points here.
