San Francisco is a city of seven square miles.  Most of the attractions and  hotels are clustered in the area East of Van Ness Avenue with the bulk of hotels around the Union Square / Financial district/ South of Market areas.    Using  MUNI buses, it should not take more than 30 minutes to get around in that specific area (from Union Square to Fisherman's wharf) .   


Here is a Trip Advisor's map of the hotels in San Francisco.

One can look at both maps to get an idea of where to stay and then zoom in on the hotels, check prices, read reviews and that should help visitors find a hotel of their choice in the neighborhood they want to stay in.  The San Francisco Forum Top Questions have information on the distinction between the various neighborhoods. 


The Golden Gate National Recreation Area is a huge swath of land from Muir Woods to Marin Headlands North of San Francisco  to Crissy Fields,  the Presidio and Landsend in San Francisco and is maintained by the US National Park Service.  A visit to parts of the GGNRA is a must for any visitor to San Francisco.  This online guide has plenty of information on what to do and see and a map to help you with biking and hiking trails.
