If you're traveling to San Francisco, you probably want to see the Golden Gate Bridge, so, here's the view from the Marin County side, above Sausalito.

You'll also want to see Fisherman's Wharf. If you decide to stay out near the wharf, you'll be conveniently close to the bridge, as well as Pier 39, Ghirardelli Square, boats to Alcatraz, North Beach, and the Marina. Hotel choices near the wharf include: the Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf, the Hyatt Fisherman's Wharf, the Marriott Fisherman's Wharf, and the Hilton Fisherman's Wharf.

If you're interested in staying downtown, San Francisco's "South of Market" (SOMA) district includes the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), the Moscone Convention Center, Yerba Buena Gardens, and a wide range of boutiques, theaters and galleries. Hotels in this neighborhood include: The Westin San Francisco Market Street (check out the view below).

W San Francisco, the Marriott, and the Palace are all nearby. This neighborhood also includes AT&T Park, home of the Giants, and an incredibly beautiful place to watch a baseball game.

The SOMA district is just a few blocks from Union Square, which is a mecca for shopping, heart of the Theatre District, and steps away from the Financial District. Hotels around Union Square include the Westin St. Francis, the Grand Hyatt, the Hilton, the Hotel Nikko, and the Sir Francis Drake.

From Union Square it's a short walk (perhaps climb might be more accurate) or cable car ride to Nob Hill, where you'll find spectacular views of San Francisco Bay, the city, the surrounding hills, and the ocean. Situated minutes from Chinatown and the City's business districts, you can stay at the
Huntington Nob Hill, the Fairmont, or the Ritz Carlton.

San Francisco's Financial District centers around the Transamerica Pyramid, and stretches down to the Embarcadero, which is also where you can catch ferry boats to Sausalito and Marin County, and where you'll find the Bay Bridge to Oakland and Berkeley. Hotels near the Embarcadero include the Hyatt Regency, the Mandarin Oriental, and Le Meridien San Francisco.
