What’s a Best Western Hotel California Room Include?lt;/h3>

The hotel takes a good night's rest very seriously, and so, it offers only the best bedding and mattresses, as well as fluffy robes and slippers. In keeping with its eco-friendly focus, the hotel has an in-house vegan restaurant, Millenium, which focuses on sustainable, local, and organic foods.

What Amenities Are Available?

Currently undergoing a massive renovation, the Best Western Hotel California is a 100-room boutique hotel with a lot of character. The pet-friendly hotel is designed in a vintage style, with worn leather furniture and tones of yellow throughout. Complimentary bicycles make your visit that much more pleasant, while the pineapple cupcakes and coffee available in the lobby provide a welcome mid-afternoon treat.

Situated in the heart of San Francisco's theater district, and only three blocks away from Union Square, the Best Western Hotel California's location is perfect for those who want to explore the city. There are many dining options within walking distance of the hotel, and it is a short distance away from Fisherman's Wharf.

What Are the Rates Like?

Valet parking is $35 a night, but with San Francisco's expansive cable car network and the hotel's prime location, you won't need a car. Rooms start at $175 per night for a standard queen, an absolute steal for a hotel in the city center, with quality amenities, and a personal touch. This hotel is far more affordable than comparable properties in the area.

What's the Bottom line?

While it's not the most glamorous hotel in the Bay, if you're after something comfortable and quirky with a concierge who will happily answer any question you might have, the Best Western Hotel California is excellent value for the money and a great hotel choice.
