Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theaters in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.
You can't visit San Fran and not take a ride in the cable car! There are two main routes in the City. We took the one that takes you from Powell and Market all the way down to Fisherman's Wharf. You get a nice ride and pass by beautiful views of the busy city.Tip: In case you wish to take...
This is the main street from the Bay at the Ferry Building all the way up Twin Peaks where the views are magnificent. Along the way you find lots of skyscrapers and people downtown, some big departments stores, some down-and-out folks at Civic Center, and then some cool neighborhoods.

"Unparalleled views and cuisine"

As you sit in their main floor tavern in leather seating watching the cabbies & trolley cars on Powell street. Sip your favorite Cabernet and share a grilled portobello mushroom seasoned to perfection. Yes, you can go upstairs & dine & dance, but you would miss the ambience of what the city offers!
"If you've seen the movie Big Eyes, you will love to visit Keane Eyes Gallery in San Fran!"
reviewed February 26, 2020 by sirenazulclaro
Keane Eyes Gallery is located on Art Gallery Row on Geary Street in San Francisco. It features some of Margaret Keane's art with the famous "Big Eyes" - during my visit the gallery was unfortunately closed and their hours are not publicized, so visiting may be hit or miss. However, one could take a peek through the glass displays and...
Dined with family on a visit to San Fransisco. The decor, though "French" in its approach, is over the top. You probably won't notice it's anything but typical. It's not. don't worry about it. the decor establishes the atmosphere you expect. The menu has a Citroen full of wonderful gastronomic experiences awaiting your choice. The staff is helpful and friendly....
We truly enjoyed our stay at this special hotel. While an older boutique type lodging, it was the thick towels, the comfy bed with high quality linens, the wine and cheese hour, the excellent included breakfast, and the chocolate chip cookies hot from the oven that sealed our desire to come back again.
I had stay in the Emblem 3 days and than left and came back after 3 days. Great hotel, the room was great and in the corridor were fruits every day and water to fill ! restaurant, and the reception team is amazing !
The staff at all levels was among the best, if not the best, we’ve ever experienced. The front desk, bartender, doorman, housekeeping were all cordial and efficient. The room was lovely. The bed almost as good as our own (which we never find). It was quiet and a great location. Walking distance to fine restaurants and Union Square. Easy cab/Lyft...
We can't wait to get back. We have to come back :) Although , we were in the midst of a coronavirus crisis, it was above all expectations. starting from room, service, food ..
Frank was amazing host and our personal chef ;)

What an incredible stay we had at this super quaint Inn. To begin with, it is a perfect location. Close to pretty much all the sights.
The Inn itself has a lovely old feel that meets 60's and 70's, even down to the typical old lift you would expect to find in one of these old San Francisco houses.
