The Sir Francis Drake Hotel on
Union Square is a threshold to the thriving cultural
center for which
San Francisco is so well known: artists, theatres,
galleries, gourmet restaurants, musicians and locals. The
Sir Francis Drake Hotel is an historic, sophisticated hotel and
vibrant gathering spot at the center of all the city's
goings-on, whether it be a stop on the Powell Street cable car
line, or around the corner from shopping destinations like
Tiffany & Co, Gucci, Prada, Giorgio Armani, Coach, Betsey
Johnson and Louis Vuitton, as well as North Face, Niketown and
the flagship Levi's. Right next door to this distinctive hotel
where a beefeater greets you daily (see above photo), is
Saks Fifth Avenue, with
Neiman Marcus and
Macy's just a block away.
San Francisco is an easy city to get around, with major
landmarks in close proximity to each other. The Sir Francis
Drake Hotel's central location means ready access to favorite
spots like Chinatown, Moscone Center, the Museum of Modern Art,
and the Financial District. Also easily accessible are
destinations such as the Embarcadero along the waterfront,
AT&T Park (home of the
San Francisco Giants),
North Beach, Telegraph Hill and
Coit Tower, and the ever-popular Fisherman's Wharf.
