Hotel Carlton

1075 Sutter St., San Francisco, California, 94109, USA

Hotel Carlton. "International vintage" aptly describes the eclectic collection of textiles, masks, globes, games, maps, postcards, and other ephemera from around the world that decorates this 1927 hotel, in which the simply furnished guest quarters—with ceiling fans and views from upper floors—are reminiscent of an apartment that would belong to a globe-trotting bohemian aunt. Five blocks from Union Square (complimentary town-car shuttle service is available to the Financial District each morning), two blocks from the California Street cable car, and one block from the eclectic shops and restaurants of Polk Street, the hotel is also on the northern edge of the seedy Civic Center/Tenderloin area. The welcoming lobby boasts a fireplace and daily newspapers, plus enchanting books on everything from astrology to living your destiny; a complimentary glass of wine is served here nightly. The restaurant Saha O ("to your health") serves excellent Arabic fusion cuisine for breakfast and dinner.
