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.

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 great feel for what it's like to stay in each apartment.

I often do this when I travel. I love the fact that I have more privacy - no one coming in and out of my place 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 staying for a long time, some of the neighborhoods I recommend are:

  • Nob Hill: Central location, safe and high-end shops, restaurants and bars

  • Mission District: Very local feel, 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

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