I’m often asked to recommend hotels in San Francisco. Since I live here, I’m probably not a good person to ask as I never stay in any of them! But, I have had the opportunity to visit a few and it seems that the choice of stylish, yet affordable, hotels has grown in recent years.
Usually I recommend people check out Joie de Vivre. This company runs several gorgeously-designed, unique boutique hotels in San Francisco, the Bay area and the wine country. The web site is really well-designed and the hotels are a decorator’s inspiration in themselves: accessible, inviting and quirky. Here are a few of my favorites from the site.
Carriage Inn, SOMA
Galleria Park Hotel, Financial District
Good Hotel, SOMA
Hotel Adagio, Union Square
