Located in the festive Yerba Buena cultural district, the Four Seasons San Francisco provides comfortable lodging for weary globe-trotters. Lavishly decorated suites offer panoramic views of the Yerba Buena gardens and the San Francisco skyline. Living spaces showcase couches, flat-screen televisions, and coffee tables; marble bathrooms highlight generous showers and bathtubs.
As part of the Four Seasons package, guests can ride on the USA 76, a sailing yacht used by Team USA during their training for the 2003 America’s Cup competition. Other popular tourist attractions include the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and Union Square. After a memorable day in the Bay, sightseers may want to sample choice wines from local wineries, view contemporary art installations, or appreciate the splendor of the hotel’s lush gardens. Prices start at $1,250 per night, based on double occupancy. (fourseasons.com)
