The hotel is fairly new and is in the historic Ghirardelli Square building. It's less than a block from the San Francisco waterfront, so each room has an amazing view of the bay.

Neighborhood: Lower Nob Hill

steinhart hotelAnother one of the extended stay hotels in San Francisco is the Steinhart in the Lower Nob Hill neighborhood. This three-star hotel offers suites only. All have a small kitchen with a microwave and small refrigerator.

Guests are required to stay a minimum of five nights here. Some of the amenities you will find at the Steinhart include:

  • Free high speed internet
  • Housekeeping service once a week
  • BBQ grills and patio
  • Cable TV
  • Private phone number & personal answering machine
  • Discounted health club pass
  • Pets allowed

Lower Nob Hill is a great location for those staying for a long period of time. It's centrally located, close to several public transportation options, and in the middle of dozens of top restaurants, bars, and other retail shops.

Other Extended Stay Options

In addition to these hotels, you can also rent an individual apartment from a local. This might sound like a more risky option, but with TripAdvisor reviews, you get a good feel for what it's like to stay in each of the places available.

I do this often when I travel. I love having more privacy with no one coming in or out of the apartment while I'm gone. When I stay for a longer period of time, I feel that I can unpack and be more at home than in a hotel.

If you are planning on staying for a long time in San Francisco, some of the neighborhoods I recommend are:

  • Nob Hill: Safe, central location with high-end shops, restaurants, and bars

  • Mission District: Very local feel. It's more of a transitional neighborhood, so make sure to find a place on the western side of Mission Street

  • Noe Valley: Not touristy at all, mainly locals. Stay on the eastern side of this neighborhood for good access to public transportation

  • Pacific Heights: Beautiful, historic neighborhood where you will mostly run into locals

Search for the perfect extended stay option for your trip, depending on budget and number of guests, on TripAdvisor.
