4.5 star hotel
Area: Fisherman's Wharf
4.28 mi from Angel Island
Best Rooms: For the best views of the bay, Alcatraz and even the Golden Gate Bridge, you'll want to book a Bay View room or a Specialty Suite View. If you can't nab one of the Bay View rooms, some of the King rooms offer views of the city skyline, the Cannery or Victoria Park.
5 star hotel
Area: Russian Hill
4.41 mi from Angel Island
Best Rooms: Book a Bay View room and you'll be guaranteed an excellent view. In general, these rooms are much quieter than City View rooms, with the exception of the Mustard building (those rooms may be a tad bit more susceptible to noise). Room 229 is a City View room, but is has a special terrace on floor 2 that also provides a bay view.
Best Rooms: For unobstructed views of the bay, book a Signature room in the Tower building. Other rooms in the Tower offer unobstructed city views as well, while the Main Building rooms offer mostly obstructed views.
Best Rooms: Park View rooms face north and have a nice view of Huntington Park, and if you get up to floor 8 or above, you can see some of the bay as well.
Best Rooms: Rooms facing California Street offer views of the famous San Francisco cable cars (but beware that the cable cars can make some noise).
