The Hotel Palomar was great! We had a corner king room overlooking Market street. The room was large with more than enough space for a couple and plenty of windows throughout. The service, cleanliness and staff were all fantastic. San Francisco was another story. Homeless people on every block. Virtually no police presence and certainly not to address the homelessness....

Great location, walking distance to loads of shops, bars etc. The concierge team were brilliant from the moment we arrived till the moment we left (shout out to Liv on the front desk!) Liv helped us book a Napa Valley wine tour which really made our trip. The room was spacious with a big bed, more than enough room. The... More

The hotel was excellent. The room was nicely furnished and quiet (I was on the top floor, the 9th). There is a fridge in the room, with some space to put something of your own in, a safe, a shaving/makeup mirror on an extender with a light, a very good gym, coffee and tea at 6 AM for early birds,...

The beds were very comfortable and housekeeping took great care to provide for our special requests. Quiet rooms. Well stocked mini-bar. Nice restaurant/bar and gym on premises. Conveniently located next to Mascone Convention center and Mel's Diner. Lots... More

Apparently this hotel was recently renovated. The new look is great. Kind of a modern look and feel. The rooms were surprising big for a hotel in San Francisco. The staff were always accommodating. Great place to stay and close to a lot of amenities.

Style and uniqueness is what we are about....clearly as evident by our wonderful restaurant and bar "Dirty Habit" -- nothing better than to unwind after a day on the town then with a cocktail on our patio. Hope to see you back soon. More

What a terrific time we had at the Hotel Palomar!!! The location is excellent. We did use the cable cars and streetcars, but also were able to walk all over the city from this location. The staff is amazing. They had a goldfish in the room for our daughter and also delivered jars of candy and a coloring book. I... More

We stayed here on a recent business trip. My convention was at Moscone West, and this hotel is very close. I chose this hotel off the internet because it was less costly than other hotels in the area, and they offer a complimentary wine tasting in the evening. The wines offered were OK, and were repeated. However, it was a... More

We stayed there over the weekend. The staff is fresh and helpful. We went there because it was dog friendly, but the dog was not allowed in the restaurant. The city taxes, parking and other fees added $100 to the room. It would have been nice to have coffee in the room as well. It is also dog friendly, but... More

We stayed there for two nights in July 2015. Great location, staff is very friendly and helpful, rooms very modern and clean, and the restaurant had a pretty good breakfast too. The rooms are not overly big, but this is, after all, one of the most expensive cities in the US. When you're in san fran, you should be out... 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.
