Pretend you're a resident of one of the wealthiest residential neighborhoods in San Francisco at this understated, elegant 1903 Edwardian hotel, where the pale yellow-and-white rooms are genteely furnished and some have sweeping city views. A long list of amenities includes morning newspapers, plush robes, slippers, complimentary Wi-Fi and bikes, Nespresso coffee machines, nightly turndown service, and complimentary town-car service to downtown, the Financial District, and the Presidio in the morning. A free English-style breakfast is offered in a sunny, spacious dining room; wine, chocolate biscotti, and appetizers are set out each evening in a lovely area off the lobby. Guests have commented about the helpful and incredibly friendly staff.
