Hotel Del Sol is a 50s motor lodge turned boutique hotel and it definitely brings you back a few decades. There is astroturf in the center court with large palm trees, a small pool with more inflatable toys than swimmers, and they serve refreshments in the afternoon in the lobby. Despite the age of the building, the rooms have been... More

We just spent a weekend at Hotel Del Sol and it was terrific. We travel with our little English bulldog who is not so fond of the big city, so it's nice that the hotel is situated around a little courtyard that keeps the rooms and the little leisure area quiet. The hotel is in a great neighborhood that feels... More

Stayed there last week on a business trip. At first glance it looks like an old school motor lodge, but don't be fooled. The rooms are very up to date and well taken care of. The staff is very friendly always willing to help out. The location is Cow Hollow makes it an easy walk to a variety of shopping,... More

We got a way better room than we expected - the place has such a warm, friendly and FUN atmosphere! Walking distance from Chestnut and Union Street shopping districts! The doggies loved it too!

My older teenage children and I stayed here in July 2015, and I was very happy with the hotel. It's an older hotel that's been updated as much as possible. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The location is away from the busier tourist areas like Fisherman's Wharf, but the bus stop is a block away and the... More

This is the second time my family has encamped at HDS during our periodic cultural jaunts to San Francisco. Between its very convenient location, near to a wide variety of culinary options, the availability of public transit, and walking distance to green space, it's in our top three Bay Area go-to selections in the Joie de Vivre boutique brand.

Great stay from start to finish! I traveled with a friend from London and it was our first trip to the west coast.

We enjoyed our 3 day stay in this hotel. Our room was very warm and snug when the weather was unusually cold in SF. Very conveniently located and good breakfast with home made cookies during the day. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

I limit my reviews to places that I would give 5 stars to - it's just my approach to reviewing, I want to encourage people to go to places that I would enthusiastically return to and I don't like the idea of dragging places down.

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.
