One of the best things about the Four Seasons chain is that virtually all their properties manage to provide a sense of solitude and privacy for travelers, even when the hotel is at full occupancy. The Four Seasons San Francisco is no exception. This hotel is an oasis of tranquility in the center of a very busy part of a very busy city. You are only two blocks from Union Square, and an easy 20 minute walk to the Embarcadero. It's true the entrance is a bit strange, and I missed some of the bonuses of other hotels- like the free tea service near the workout facilities, and bowls of apples left out in the evenings, but the service (particularly room service) was first rate and my room absolutely lovely. Although I was on the top floor of the hotel my view wasn't all that amazing, but very nice. The real reason to stay here is for peace and quiet. Its a very tranquil space.
