For those who want to be in the thick of it, you can't do better than the Four Seasons, which offers endless amenities in a convenient location on the city's main thoroughfare, close to Union Square, SoMa and the Financial District.
The amenities at the sophisticated Four Seasons include delicious California cuisine and handcrafted cocktails at MKT Restaurant and Bar, an outdoor terrace above Yerba Buena Gardens and access to Equinox Sports Club’s gym, swimming pool and spa. The large rooms (the smallest is 480 sq. ft.) don’t disappoint either; Guests will enjoy stunning views of the city thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, relaxing in the deep soaking tub in the marble bathroom and sleeping on down bedding that’s turned down each evening.
Once a rather gritty neighborhood, tech money (Twitter, Spotify, Square, Dolby and Uber all call this 'hood home) is funding much-needed revitalization projects with new high-rise offices, luxury condos, high-end restaurants popping up along this stretch of Market Street.
Time Out tip: The Den is a monthly cocktail series that pays homage to SF’s original speakeasies. Gain entrance by emailing email@example.com to get the password.
