Behold, the second edition of the Hotel 18 map. The reasoning? To answer the ultimate question: "Where should I stay in San Francisco?" While the first version of this map included 38 of the city's most essential hotels, the latest version has been carefully edited down to 18, with only the best and most awesome hotels making the cut. In this smaller, leaner selection, some tough choices were made to bring you the best of the best.
The curated collection includes historical stunners like the Palace and the Fairmont, the ritz and glitz of the Intercontinental and Sir Francis Drake, the contemporary coolness at the Clift, and also lesser known and kitschy locations like the Ocean Park Motel and the Hotel Phoenix. Want to stay in San Francisco but not feel like you're in the middle of a major metropolitan area? Do check out the Inn at the Presidio, which is smack-dab in the middle of a federal park.
We'll be updating the map again in due time, so if you have a favorite that wasn't included, please mention it in the comments or drop a suggestion to the tipline. If all this talk of hotels has got you itching to travel, check out Racked SF's Travel Week coverage.Read More
