Hotel Whitcomb

1231 Market St., San Francisco, California, 94103, USA

Built in 1910, this historic hotel was the temporary seat of city government from 1912 to 1915 before becoming a hotel in 1916, and that grand history is reflected in the public spaces: The expansive, well-appointed lobby boasts marble balustrades and columns, carved wooden ceilings, rare Janesero paneling, Austrian crystal chandeliers, Tiffany stained glass, and a ballroom with one of the largest parquet dance floors in the city. Broad halls lead to spacious, constantly refurbished rooms with flat-screen TVs, baths, and new carpeting. Northeast corner suites offer views of Market Street and the gold-encrusted dome of City Hall. Stroll out the front door to find the Civic Center Muni and BART stations and the main public library; the Asian Art Museum, Opera House, Davies Symphony Hall, and Westfield Centre are close by.
