We had flown into San Francisco and after 3 nights picked up a car. Having booked our hotels through a company in England, we headed down here for our first night. The setting of the hotel couldn't be better: right on the bay on the famous Cannery Row. Our room was spacious and the hotel immaculate. Unfortunately, when we went into the bar for a drink, a beer cost $6 for what we both reckoned was a third of a pint. Needless to say, we didn't eat there or drink any more. Instead, we found a great bar down the road - the Bushwackers. The next morning, before our departure, we got juice and sandwiches from a small shop and ate them overlooking the Pacific. This is an expensive hotel, but in a great location.
