After 21 nights (12 hotels) touring the state, we decided this hotel has the most comfortable bed ever. (I think #503 - Executive Suite - city view patio). The hotel made it in our top three favorites list (and it was also our least expensive hotel). Please confirm: Beautyrest Black Mattress, King - but not sure which line as I... More

My husband and I stayed in a suite with a view of the bay. It was an amazing view and location in San Francisco. Staff was very friendly and room was clean. I would definitely recommend to family and friends!! The restaurant, Perry's, had good food with happy hour specials. Awesome staff and we felt safe in the hotel!

My circumstance was far from a typical vacation. I actually checked in to Hotel Griffon for four nights while apartment hunting. The staff was great and very understanding of my situation. They gave me a good rate and allowed me to book an extra night when I still couldn't figure out my housing situation. They also gave me free apples... More

We spent a weekend at the Hotel Griffon in early August. A small, boutique near the water, it was perfectly pleasant. The on premises restaurant offers a good brunch, but if you're there Saturday morning you should walk the block to the Ferry Bldg Farmer's market. The room was small but not tiny. We had no view but it was... More

The hotel is kind of weird. The beds are average at best buy ok. The rooms do not have ac but aren't to hit during the summer time. It is located in an odd spot in town but it's not to bad. Wifi is slow as well. There is a good steak house near by. .......

The location is great for a business trip as it's in the heart of the financial district. The rooms are quite small and the sink was outside the bathroom causing the TV to be placed close to the ceiling over the sink. The walls are paper thin so you can hear anything and everything that happens in the hallway or... 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.
