Did a quick weekend trip to visit the San Francisco Art institute for my daughter and squeeze in some local fun ... had yummy eats at a food truck event, saw amazing murals in the mission district and took in the cool vibes and views at Dolores Park 😊😎💜

There wasn't anything wrong with the room or parking. We were sitting outside on the hammocks after hours and the owner said "I can't legally kick you out but if you stay out here you will bring in the bar crowd and homeless people." What? I am a Bay Area native so I am not clueless when it comes to...

I really enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Del Sol. It felt like a boutique hotel. The front desk manager Oscar was very nice and helpful with my booking, and Phil did a great job with checking me in. It is also centrally located next to Lombard Street and my favorite bar/restaurant the Balboa Cafe.

I have stayed at this hotel twice while visiting friends in the City and have had great experiences each time. The hotel is nicely kept even as an older hotel, and the rooms are very clean. This time, I got a junior suite which had a separated living room and bedroom which is a great amount of extra space. The...

Oscar is amazing and went above and beyond my entire stay. I had issues booking online and he immediately took care of what I needed over the phone. We were supplied extra towels at our late arrival time and when we got the room a bottle of champagne was inside! What a wonderful surprise and kicked off a romantic getaway...

A ten minute walk from Fort Mason, where we attended the San Francisco Vintners Market. Nice to have a comfortable room and bed to relax in after being on our feet for 4-5 hours! Fun area for food and drinks. Beautiful Water Front. And such a GOOD price!

My family and I stayed here on the spur of the moment. Everything about the place was great. From the front desk people to the pool, it was a great experience. The have fresh baked cookies at the front desk every afternoon. I would stay here again anytime I am in San Francisco.

Great location. Fun and funky vibe. Love how they turned this old-school motel into a cute little boutique hotel with all the amenities you need. The housekeepers bake fresh cookies each day which are available in the lobby. They were delicious. Would definitely stay here again.

Hotel is in a very nice neighborhood. The hotel is on a quite side street. Many great restaurants. Parking was reasonable. Was not a good week to be in SF as there was a big game developers conference and all the hotels were very expensive.

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Designed to celebrate California's lively culture, the Hotel Del Sol is a cheerful explosion of the West Coast spirit. Once a 50s-style motor lodge, it has been newly transformed to offer the stylings and personalized service of a boutique hotel. The spacious guestrooms evoke the bright and airy interior of a California beach house. Relaxing hammocks, a sparkling pool and towering palm trees in the courtyard is a colorful feast for the eyes. ... more   less
