Boutique Hotels in San Francisco
- Orchard Hotel
- mbassy Suites South San Francisco - 250 Gateway Boulevard (near airport - (South San Francisco). This is the perfect choice to create a discount family vacation package to San Francisco. Our family has stayed at this hotel several times. It's perfect in that with the suite there is plenty of room for a family, there is a delicious breakfast buffet that you can fill up on, and there is a pool for the kids when you return home from a day of sightseeing in San Francisco. There is a complimentary shuttle from the airport to the hotel. So, you can combine this with a 3 day Muni Passport (includes the BART from the airport to downtown) and your transportation..cable car, too!...is taken care of for your weekend getaway. We rented a car when we stayed here (BART wasn't going to SFO then) and that worked out fine, but parking in the city can be a challenge.
