Top 10 Hip Hotels in San Francisco/Bay Area
This property leads the city's trendy hotel scene in a prime downtown location.
Given the sleek, futuristic décor, it's fitting that this hotel is located in SoMa adjacent to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The lobby is expansive with a minimalist, modern atmosphere. Nearly all of the 404 rooms (including nine suites) boast views of the Bay Bridge; they come in a variety of types, ranging from the standard Wonderful to the extravagant Extreme Wow with living rooms, butler pantries and two full baths. No matter which you choose, your room will be stocked with more than just the basics, including down pillows, pillow-top mattresses, dual-line cordless phones, Bliss bath products and iPod shuffles (available through the Whatever/Whenever program). A modest (but hip) fitness center is available, along with a Bliss Spa outpost. House dining is a highlight, as Trace restaurant has developed relationships with regional farmers, fishermen and artisanal food producers. Meetings and events can be accommodated with a total of 12,000 square feet of space.
