I stayed at the Marriott. It was close and convenient.
Well, right across the street, actually
I’m not going to recommend a hotel because I live here - meaning I
haven’t stayed in the hotels… There are a great many within
walking distance - there’s also a youth hostel somewhere not far
away. They range from fleabag homeless shelters to $1000/night
places. I know that yelp.com is a national thing, but it’s used a LOT
around here. Get to the hotel part in SF (takes a bit of
navigation…) We are in Union Square (we’re down the hall from
Revere). Nearby neighborhoods would be Nob Hill, especially Lower Nob
Hill, and Soma (short for “South of Market”). The Tenderloin is our
skid row, but it’s not all bad and it’s getting better all the time.
It’s also near to us. Nobody likes everything on Yelp, but the
reviews can guide you none the less.
