The Proper

1100 Market Street  (Hotel Entrance is at 45 McAllister Street)
San Francisco, CA  94102
(415) 735-7777

San Francisco has its own flatiron building? Who knew?

Well, now I do and you do too. What's even better is the fabulous hotel within.

Located in the Mid-Market neighborhood, The Proper is everything a boutique hotel should be in the city that invented this reimagined concept in hospitality: it's idiosyncratic (but highly competent) in its styling, its service is deeply personalized, and it's memorable—from its décor to its fine and casual dining within.

What's more: it's discounted, for us, at 15% off its standard daily rate.

The Sir Francis Drake

450 Powell Street  (Union Square)
San Francisco, CA  20037

The San Francisco icon is continues to earn its cult status with gorgeous (if a bit baroque) decor and sensational service in the heart of Union Square. Dripping with history but as modern as its tech-centered home city, the Sir Francis Drake is just too grand to be a boutique hotel. So, enjoy its grandeur and indulge in its bars and restaurants. All at a terrific rate, for us.
