4 star hotel
Area: Financial District
0.14 mi from Tin How Temple
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: There isn't too much in the way of views, as the hotel is surrounded by buildings, but rooms facing Bush St. on floors 2 - 8 are your best bet for views of the city.
Best Rooms: The hotel is only 7 stories tall, so you won't find much in the way of views. However, some of the King rooms facing Bush Street offer views of Chinatown.
Best Rooms: Luxury Suites, Studio Suites and the Executive Rooms are all available with views of the Bay. For a Studio Suite with a view of the Bay, request a room ending in *06 (e.g. 1506 or 2106). These rooms are very large and offer great views.
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.
