The accommodation scene here is as innovative as the city itself, bursting with beautifully furnished boutique hotels, friendly-family inns and upmarket chains. There are top-notch San Francisco hotels dotted around the city, so where you choose to stay depends on your priorities, your tastes and your budget.

As you might expect, many of the best San Francisco hotels are concentrated in downtown.

The neighbourhood around the Civic Center is hugely popular with visitors, mainly because it’s home to iconic attractions such as the San Francisco Asian Art Museum, the Davies Symphony Hall and the War Memorial Opera House. The area also boasts a wide range of three and four-star San Francisco hotels.

Prices tend to be a tad inflated because of the central location, but there are still plenty of options for travellers on a tight budget.

A short stroll from the Civic Center is kooky SoMa, once an industrial wasteland and now a thriving neighbourhood packed with converted warehouses, contemporary museums, swanky bars and quirky restaurants. If you’re in San Francisco to eat, drink and party, this is the place to base yourself.

SoMa is home to some of the best San Francisco boutique hotels, as well as a few seriously upmarket chains (Four Seasons among others). There are a few options for thriftier visitors, but chic and luxury are the two real bywords here.
