San Francisco has developed a reputation as one of the most innovative cities in the US. The tech boom started in the Bay Area surrounding the city, and young entrepreneurs have flocked to San Francisco to work in startups, apps, and revolutionary new sites.
This has led to a huge number of business travelers visiting this small city by the Bay, and it doesn’t hurt that San Francisco also has a lot of historic and beautiful sites to explore. If you are one of the many people visiting the city on business, book your stay at one of the following San Francisco hotels. These hotels will help you stay on top of your work during business hours and relax on your off hours.
The Fairmont San Francisco
If you want great restaurants, VIP treatment, and a luxury room, stay at The Fairmont San Francisco. It’s located right on California Street, which is in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District, so chances are you are probably a short walking distance away from wherever most of your meetings are. The Fairmont has a state-of-the-art business center and WiFi access, as well as a pool, spa, and sauna to help you unwind. It might be one of the pricier hotels in San Francisco, but it is definitely worth the money.
Omni San Francisco Hotel
This stunning hotel was originally built as a bank, and still has a lot of the original architecture in place. The Omni San Francisco Hotel is also located on California Street, so it remains close to the major businesses located in the Financial District. The Omni is also on the cable car route, so you have easy access to a lot of San Francisco destinations, not to mention Union Square is just a few minutes away. The Omni always gets top marks for service and welcomes your family, if you want to take your kids along on your trip. The hotel offers child care and activities for the kids, as well as a bar, restaurant, and business center for the adults.
InterContinental San Francisco
The high-tech rooms of the InterContinental San Francisco will feel like heaven for most of the technophiles flocking to the city. Besides offering WiFi, a huge plasma TV with digital programming, an iPod docking station, and video game consoles in the rooms, the InterContinental offers 24-hour room service, so you can feel fully pampered even if you have to stay up all night to work. The InterContinental is pet-friendly, too. If you don’t want to leave Fido behind, you can bring him along for your trip without worry.
