Old-world charm coupled with the ambience of a small country inn makes Fitzgerald Hotel, located in the heart of Union Square, a great choice for a cost-friendly stay in San Francisco. Established in 1910 and completely restored in 2003, the hotel has just 39 rooms, and while they are on the small side, they offer half-canopy beds, and all have wireless Internet access. The gated (working) elevator in the hotel is also a charming touch. Original paintings, hand-painted walls with faux finishes, and designer and antique furnishings all add to the ambience. Be sure to check out the very popular Hidden Vine Wine Bar.
