Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Zelos San Francisco

12 4th St., San Francisco, California, 94103, USA

A high-style haven on the top five floors of the green-tiled Pacific Building (built in 1907), the Zelos offers a luxurious oasis above the busiest part of town, with spacious rooms decked out in muted alligator-pattern carpeting, earth-toned drapes, and sleek furniture echoing a 1930s sensibility. The hotel's softly lighted lounge area with plush sofas gives way to the Dirty Habit restaurant and bar, renowned for its outdoor patio and creative menu. Additional amenities include a gourmet, organic "honor bar" loaded with snacks, a 24-hour fitness center, and luxury bath products and plush robes.
