Doormen in red Beefeater outfits are the first to welcome you into the regal Kimpton Sir Francis Drake Hotel! Step inside to encounter opulent interiors in the form of a grand staircase, gold-leaf ceilings, marble walls, brocade curtains, and Victorian furniture. The old-school theme extends into your suite, which marries classic elegance with San Francisco theatrics; and comes complete with modern conveniences. It’s located right in the Union Square city center so it’s an ideal starting point for first-timers who want to cover all the essential spots!
Phoenix Hotel is set around a 1950’s retro motel-style motor lodge, embodying the spirit of the scruffy Tenderloin district. Frozen in time, the funky oasis is made up of flashy rooms with all the usual amenities. The property surrounds a tropical courtyard complete with a kitschy pool! The hotel has hosted rock and roll legends like The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, and David Bowie. Lounge poolside and soak in the charm of old San Francisco!
