Best Rooms: As this is a city hotel, you won't find much in the way of views. Then again, the hotel is located conveniently in Union Square.
Best Rooms: The hotel can't offer any city views because it's surrounded by taller buildings, but rooms overlooking Post St. on floors 5 and above have nicer views.
4 star hotel
Area: Financial District
0.37 mi from city center
Best Rooms: For the best view of the bay, as well as of Coit Tower and the Bay Bridge, be sure to book a Bay View room. Ask for one that has a balcony, so you can really experience the views. These rooms exist even on the highest floor, alongside the uber-expensive suites, so they're quite a steal.
Best Rooms: Rooms facing California St. on floors 3 - 4 are the best bet for a view of the city.
Best Rooms: Rooms facing Mason Street on floors 6 and higher in the Main Building have the best partial city views and are available mainly as Historic Kings. Many Historic Kings also face Geary Street and have good street views. Rooms in the club building that face the pool are the other best options for views; these rooms are mainly available as Premier Kings.
Best Rooms: Royal Court King rooms, on floors 10 - 12, offer great views overlooking the city and all the way up to Nob Hill, while Corner View room types offer the best views of Union Square and Nob Hill.
