I stayed at this hotel for two nights with my two young children. As we were only in San Francisco for a short time, I had initially wanted to stay in Fisherman's Wharf. The price of hotels in that area was way out of my budget, so I looked in the nearby areas and came across Hotel Del Sol. This... More

I'm struggling with this one. Objectively, this is a four star experience. Good value for a city that is in my opinion unnecessarily very expensive in the hotel department. Great location in the Marina with easy access to Chestnut and Union streets for trendy shopping and restaurants. Also easy walk to Ghirideli square then to Fishermans Wharf/Embarcadero etc. very nice... More

The Hotel Del Sol is basically an old motel style hotel that's been given a lick of paint but still awaits the kind of finer, more modern embellishments that would warrant the almost meaningless 'boutique' tag. That said, it still has a kind of kitsch charm and even though the rooms are perfunctory, the bathrooms small and breakfast a very... More

Our family of four stayed 6 nights at Hotel Del Sol recently in one room with two double beds. The hotel is an old 50's motel which is colourfully painted and decorated and has a lovely (fake) lawn area with seating and hammocks. The weather was cool when we visited and so the kids were really pleased that the pool... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and it has been an other excellent stay. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The breakfast is simple but does the trick before you go off for the day. I would like to come back with the family.

After booking flights, and spending days on trying to find a place to stay. We lucked upon this one. First of all you are in a great area of the city, union street is a few blocks away in one direction and chestnut street in another, both of which have wonderful shops and places to eat and drink.

We stayed four nights at this hotel during the Easter holidays after a road trip from Los Angeles. The check in with Oscar was excellent as it was my wife's birthday he went out of his way to book our party of six into a great restaurant close by.

OK, if you are a Ritz / 4-Seasons person, this may not be for you. But if you are looking for a great family hotel, at a fair price (this is SF) and in a great location, this is a wonderful find. Clean and comfortable, and honestly the best and friendliest staff I have ever met. Don't judge a book... More

We enjoyed our two-night stay in a suite at this converted motor lodge. My wife and I took the small (but comfortable) bedroom. My teenage son slept in the living room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. However, if there had been affordable vacancies elsewhere, this wouldn't have been our first choice. The pullout sofa bed was very uncomfortable.... More

Stayed here for 5 nights as a party of 9 in 3 rooms. I was a little concerned about the location but it couldn't have been better. It is a couple of blocks from the hip and cool Chestnut St and Union Street. Plenty of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. It is only a 20 minute walk to Fishermans Wharf... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
