Fodor's Expert Review Axiom Hotel San Francisco

28 Cyril Magnin St., at 5th and Market Sts., San Francisco, California, 94102, USA Fodor's Choice

Green, pet-friendly, and equipped with high-speed fiber-optic Wi-Fi, the tech-oriented Axiom—a splashy refresh of a 1908 hotel—nimbly provides a boutique experience business and leisure travelers applaud. Just steps from the Powell Street cable-car turnaround, the hotel offers service that’s polite, intuitive, and efficient. The public spaces, including a check-in area filled with California-theme books, evoke the past while projecting an au courant vibe. Many rooms are old-school small but make sensible use of the available space.
