From Fisherman’s Wharf to Union Square, our luxury hotel is just minutes from it all
San Francisco, America's favorite city by readers of Travel + Leisure magazine, is renowned for its steep rolling hills, an eclectic mix of Victorian and modern architecture, and its peninsular location surrounded on three sides by the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay. The main attractions include the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, cable cars, the Transamerica Pyramid, Coit Tower, and Chinatown.
Union Square Shopping
San Francisco’s Union Square is colorful with fresh flower stands dotting the sidewalks. Cable Cars run along Powell Street. Crafts people sell their wares curbside on Stockton Street between Post and Sutter. Shop windows tempt passers-by with their colorful displays.
Guests of The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco hotel are just minutes from Union Square featuring exceptional shopping and dining options.

Of The City's many hills, Nob Hill boasts perhaps the best view of San Francisco Bay, especially when observed from a California Street cable car, running from the foot of Market Street, over the hill and down to Van Ness Avenue. Nob Hill's noble tenants include Grace Cathedral, a replica of Notre Dame in Paris; Huntington Park, site of many arts shows and graced by a replica of a 16th century Roman fountain; Nob Hill Masonic Center, an architectural dazzler hosting various musical events. And don’t miss seeing famous Lombard Street, dubbed “crookedest street in the world.” This landscaped street is a photographer’s favorite.
