The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighborhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.

The Metro Hotel is a lovely, independent boutique hotel in a local neighbourhood full of great charm, cafes and restaurants. This is great alternative to the hotels downtown; the buses that run right outside on Divisadero made it a convenient location to reach many different...More

The city is so easy to navigate that The Metro is a great base. You could cover the places you mention seeing including China Town, in one day. So staying right next to them isn't necessary. The hotel is about 5 mins walk... More
