Hilton San Francisco

333 O'Farrell St., San Francisco, California, 94102, USA

With 1,908 rooms and suites, this is the largest hotel in California—and sometimes the lobby feels like downtown at rush hour, but there is a positive side to all that size: many handsome rooms in the silvery tower that rises 46 floors to a penthouse event space enjoy awe-inspiring 360-degree panoramic views that rank among the finest in San Francisco. Rooms in the original building offer soundproof windows and sleek earth-tone furnishings, many boast glass shower stalls; 35 executive cabana-style rooms surround a sheltered courtyard by an outdoor heated swimming pool and whirlpool. Urban Tavern is a place to enjoy a community table, charcuterie, and a simple dining menu. As the hotel borders the sometimes-dicey Tenderloin area, guests are directed east toward Union Square (two blocks away) when venturing out on foot after dark.
