my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at the Hotel Griffon in San Francisco's Embarcadero district. From the staff to the proximity to Saturday's farmer's market located at the Ferry Building, this place is an ideal getaway. The room was small but cleverly designed. The staff was friendly and most helpful. On the ground floor is Perry's... More

I stayed 2 nights on a business trip, as the conference's venue was close by. The room was alright, rather small, no real window (adjacent building blocks all light), hard to get some fresh air into the room. Friendly staff, restaurant right in the building (breakfast served at 8, a bit late, but there's a Starbucks 5 minutes away). If... More

Our stay at the Hotel Griffon exceeded expectations. The location is excellent- tucked away on a small street but just around the corner from the beauty and activity of the Embarcadero waterfront. Our room had a lovely water view; we overlooked the Bay Bridge. A few minutes walk took us to many restaurants and the fantastic Saturday morning Farmer's Market... More

I was in SF on business over a weekend, and so I brought my wife up for the trip. The location is fabulous; a two-block walk from the Ferry Building and all of its restaurants.

Located at the Embarcadero offering an enjoyable, trendy experience. It was comfortable walking to restaurants and the ferry building. Seems much more exotic than being in the city centre. Having cocktails beside the Bay Bridge was a fun event.

We arrived at Hotel Griffon early afternoon (before check-in) on a Saturday. Noel was very helpful in getting us an early check-in. We really enjoyed our proximity to the Ferry building and all of its shops and cafes.

We were fantastically surprised with this hotel! The rates are affordable for San Francisco and the location is perfect for exploring the Ferry Building (The Slanted Door....YUM!) and farmer's market on Saturdays. The view of the Bay Bridge is breathtaking and lit up at night. The rooms are small but who cares in San Francisco as there are so many... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
