Hotel at a Glance: Hotel Zelos San Francisco
Guests staying in corner king rooms get an inside look at one of this 4-star hotel-s most distinctive features: the turret. It-s an original element of the 1907 building, known locally as the Pacific Place. Curved windows inside the turret give guests commanding views of Market Street below.
The most space comes with a deluxe suite—625 square feet, including a soaking tub and a separate parlor.
Seasonal dishes at the onsite Dirty Habit restaurant complement craft cocktails that draw from a selection of hundreds of spirits.
Staying fit: The gym has cardio and strength-training equipment, plus balance balls and other gear.
Getting around: The hotel is within walking distance of trolley and train stations.
San Francisco's South of Market Neighborhood: Museums, Gardens, and Tech Headquarters
Just north of the popular Mission District, South of Market (or SoMa, as it's sometimes called) is a vast neighborhood that contains many of the city's best museums, including the Asian Art Museum and the Museum of Modern Art. Yerba Buena Gardens displays a number of outdoor art pieces and a Martin Luther King Jr. memorial, which sits behind a 50-foot-high waterfall. The public gardens, a butterfly garden among them, cover two city blocks.
Quite a few Silicon Valley companies have had headquarters in South of Market, including Twitter, Yelp, and Wired. The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts is one of Apple Inc.'s favorite venues for unveiling new products—Steve Jobs introduced the iPod and the iPad to the world from its stage.
