2 star hotel
Area: Cow Hollow
0.13 mi from Presidio Theater
Best Rooms: Americas Best Value Inn San Francisco is encircled by equally tall buildings, blocking any potential views of the city.
Best Rooms: Good views are a dearth at the Inn as it sits by two busy roads.
Best Rooms: There isn't much in the way of views, except the pool, which can be seen from rooms facing the courtyard on floors 2 - 5.
Best Rooms: Rooms facing Sutter St. offer the best available views, which are of surrounding buildings.
3.5 star hotel
Area: Fisherman's Wharf
1.42 mi from Presidio Theater
Best Rooms: The building is only 3 stories high, so the views are obstructed by surrounding buildings.
Best Rooms: Premier Queen Room with Skyline View at the Monarch Hotel is the best option for a good view. Remember to ask for one of those on floor 6.
