The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s version of Wall Street. The rush of business people make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of historic and contemporary architecture, including the iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours, bars and restaurants quickly fill up with happy hour revelers. Stocks aren’t the only kind of market being followed, the Ferry Building Marketplace on the Embarcadero is a gourmet food emporium and farmers market that will satisfy anyone working up an appetite.
This is one of my favorite features of San Francisco and I bring friends here. Start at the top by Coit Tower and walk down admiring the splendid views of the Bay and the great quirky architecture. You might see a parrot or two. You end up at the lovely Levi Plaza which is a nice green space amidst the...
Past by randomly and the stagecoach caught our eye. Its free to walk around and they had some pretty interesting displays about the history of Wells Fargo and San Francisco. Worth a look if you have the time.

"Worth a Look"

It's amazing how this unusual skyscraper has gone from something hated to a much-beloved icon. Maybe it's because the more recent skyscrapers are so uninspired. And now it is eclipsed by Salesforce. Come and look and visit the redwood park at the base.
Great photography! I've visited 3 or 4 times, and Pier 24 has shown very compelling photos each time. You have to plan ahead to get free tickets for entry. Once inside, it's a lovely, well curated, and uncrowded place!
Has one of the best cioppino in the city. It’s atmosphere feels like a turn of the century restaurant in New York City, down to the privacy stalls along the side and the tunic-dressed staff. A must-go, can’t miss... Best for late dinner.
Of the selection tasting menu gives you a great selection of the most interesting parts of the menu which are fascinating and presented very attractively. Including the expensive 5A waygu. Very expensive but unbelievably good. Short ribs highly recommended as add on to menu. Japanese fried chicken feat too
The service, presentation, flavors, and menu are all superb. We sat upstairs where it is quieter and our group of four savored grilled octopus, fritto misto, risotto, pear salad, duck, two pastas, and ugly cookies for dessert. Excellent. Corkage is $25. Valet parking $12. A must experience if you enjoy authentic Italian food cooked to perfection.
We stayed here mid-March, as "Repeat Guests", but - as the scary Virus threatened - had to cut short our visit to SF, to avoid the imminent "Travel Ban".
Overall, "Omni San Francisco" looked after us pretty well. We were more than a bit concerned and disappointed to note the absence of "Hand Sanitizing Facilities" for the duration of our...
"ONE WORD: O U T S T A N D I N G ! If this is your first San Fran visit, definitely go ALL IN and book your stay here!"

My husband and I travel relatively frequently, and the Loews is a force to be reckoned with, as far as hotel stays go. We stayed in February and had an outstanding time - our room was a bridge to bridge view, which in and of itself, was worth the stay. The bedding was to die for - enough to have...
Club Quarters San Francisco is well located near the Ferry Bldg and Embarcadero BART. The facility gives good value, especially to member organizations. The staff is friendly and helpful. Everything is compact but workable and efficient.
A very nice Hotel - very good location and great staff. Would have been nice with more view if the city, but these rooms where not available when I booked the room. Nice part of the city, close to Market Street and public transportation.
My sister & I stayed at Le Meridien due to its proximity to the Embarcadero BART/light rail station.
We had tickets to Oprah’s 2020 Vision Tour & took light rail from the Embarcadero station to the Chase Center. Our room was on the 15th floor, with views of the Bay Bridge & a reflection of the TransAmerica building, also known...
