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.

Hotel's Favorite
To say we love this hotel is an understatement. Every aspect about this hotel is a 10+. The rooms are quite and comfortable. The mini bar/snack is over the top!! We ate dinner at the downstairs restaurant which was very good. There is a rooftop bar/club with an amazing view of SF. Most of all we found all the staff very hospitable and personal We will always book at Virgin Hotels when possible

This place just opened up a few months ago, and its quickly become my favorite establishment in the city. I'm local to the Bay, and often have weekend getaways to the city. This has allowed me to sample a large number of hotels across the different neighborhoods, and the Virgin SF takes the top spot for me. Service is top notch, extremely accommodating (tip: register for the "in the know" program) and the rooftop bar has amazing views of the city. Commons club also serves creative food that appeals to the most sophisticated of taste buds. Decor is amazing throughout, super hip and trendy hotel. Shoutout to Caty for making out last stay memorable. Def check it out.

During these volatile times you would think that hotels would show some flexibility but not the General Manager of the Virgin Downtown SF Hotel. When I travel to SF I stay at other hotels but thought I would try Virgin when I visit SF in May. Last month I made a two night, non-refundable reservation at Virgin but a couple weeks later discovered that a dear college friend wanted me to stay at his Northern California home one of the two nights. Consequently I asked Virgin if I could cancel one of my two nights at their hotel. Recognizing that they were losing one night of a non-refundable reservation I offered to pay more for my other non-refundable night’s stay. Given that I was giving the Hotel two months to sell my hotel room for one of the two nights I figured they would honor my request; I figured wrong. The General Manager refused to be accommodating. Needless to say, unless the fee for one of my two nights is suddenly waived upon my arrival in May, I will never stay at the Virgin Downtown SF Hotel ever again. In fact, I will never stay at a Virgin Hotel anywhere. Short term thinking by the Hotel General Manager.

Amazing service from the second I arrived to the second I left. The room had amazing views, was well maintained and spotlessly clean. As with many other Virgin brands, it's the people / staff that make the difference between something which is good to something which is memorable and truly amazing. Virgin never fail to amaze, the Virgin Hotel, San Francisco is no exception
