What’s the best area to stay in San Francisco? After reading through reviews of numerous trip advisers, we found Hotel G – an affordable luxury hotel in the perfect location!
Here’s how we made our decision.
Traveling to a popular city like San Francisco can be super exciting – and overwhelming at the same time. With thousands of rooms to choose from – how do you know which hotel is in the best location?
What’s a reasonable price for a hotel in the center of the city?
These are questions we ask ourselves while searching for hotels.
Before entering a big city – Create a “to do” list in advance. This makes it easier to map out the distance, convenience, and cost of transportation.

Some people may consider booking a room farther out of the city for lower rates. But don’t let those rates trick you. Saving 50-100.00 may end up costing you more in Uber rides. Not only that – you don’t want to waste time in traffic.
It’s inconvenient and you’ll miss out on an opportunity to capture the city’s true beauty.
For a place like San Fran – trust me, you wouldn’t want to miss a thing!
We couldn’t decide which location between Fisherman’s Wharf and the Union Square area. Considering our list – it was more convenient for us to choose Union Square. If you’re in the heart of Union Square, you are a 7 minute ride from just about everywhere you want to go:)
HOTEL G SAN FRANCISCO
Hotel G is a boutique hotel just steps away from Union Square -where all of our favorite stores are within walking distance.
This lifestyle concept boutique hotel greets you kindly with its warming eclectic vibration. Service and staff were both very pleasant – what a fantastic way to start our day! Customer service is a big deal to us. [ well… to me.? ]
For so many reasons; I believe in the Golden Rule, I value good service because I value good people. You should never have to hate your job so much it makes you an angry individual. It’s not fair to any of us. I know how hard I work to earn the income I deserve. This is why in my mind it’s only natural for me to feel that I deserve the best.
Stepping off of the elevator into the Greatest King room on the 12th floor — it honestly felt like we walked into a brand new contemporary apartment in New York City! The living space was comfortable, spacious and we had access to everything we need!
A king bed, closet space, full-sized mirror, [ perfect for selfies ? ]
a separate sitting area, fridge, TV, Keurig, tea, snacks, and Boxed Water!
The white marble bathroom was a bonus!
On our very last night, we were too tired to walk around the city – but didn’t want to go to bed so we hung out at Benjamin Cooper downstairs.
What an intimate bar we found hidden in our hotel!
We grabbed a few cocktails and enjoyed each other’s company for a few hours, then back upstairs we went!
Our favorite features of this hotel are its preserved historic designs and wall of art.
Hotel G partnered with Creativity Explored, a nonprofit arts center for adult artists with developmental disabilities. This organization gives these artists the opportunity to curate, showcase and sell their artwork. What an awesome cause!
What won us over was their story, and how they strive to make you feel like you are in your home away from home.
Jeremy is a sophisticated guy who is easily pleased by simplicity. Me on the other hand … it just depends on what mood I’m in on that particular day, lol. I normally go for the boutique hotels or modern with crisp white linen. This hotel is a combination of both of us. Which made the experience amazing! Overall – classy, clean, quiet, simple and relaxing. We picked the perfect place in San Francisco, and we plan to return to Hotel G-SF. Our new “home away from home”.
Warning: this place is so peaceful it has no problem massaging you to sleep!
