As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighbourhood.

Second time in San Fran and first time at this hotel. Service great as one would except, rooms clean and well maintained. The location was great and central. We would stay here again if we were to return for a holiday. The only downside is the valet parking fee is a bit excessive

"The one bedroom suites overlooking California Street are great."
"If you get in late speak to someone and get their name and ask to have your room ready."
"The higher the better. City view does not always means that you get a city view."
"City view room included views of both Coit Tower & Transamerica Pyramid."
"We opted for a 1 BR suite and could not have been happier. It was huge!"
US$391 - US$1,313 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
