STAY IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN SAN FRANCISCO
Set against distinct neighborhoods, the downtown San Francisco Hotel Palomar is at the crossroads of cultural diversity, economic development, and the historic adventures of the city's founders. The hotel's Fourth & Market Street address is in the middle of a vibrant area that pulses with possibility.
Art comes alive in this downtown district. Galleries, museums and centers for creative expression are within walking distance of Hotel Palomar, including: The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Museum of African Dispora (MOAD), the San Francisco Design Museum, the San Francisco Jewish Museum, the Cartoon Art Museum, the California Historical Society and the Asian Art Museum.
Nearby Union Square is home to dozens of specialty stores and boutique shops that are havens of high-end fashion and one-of-a-kind discoveries. And you'll find some of the world's leading retailers just steps from our entrance. That includes the new Bloomingdale's and Westfield Center, Nordstrom, Neiman-Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Macy's.
Time to eat? Some of the city's finest restaurants are all around you, starting right on our fifth floor, where a drink at Lounge on Five or dinner at our sophisticated Fifth Floor Restaurant might be just the ticket. Especially if you're heading for San Francisco's theater district, within easy walking distance.
The Moscone Convention Center and the Sony Metreon, San Francisco's centers of technology and commerce, are only a block from the hotel. Or take one of the historic trolley cars or a brisk walk to the Ferry Building, home to a Saturday farmers' market like no other, as well as to the shops of local gourmet food artisans sharing their wares (think chocolate, cheese, oysters, mushrooms, wine, organic produce and more). This recently renovated building also marks the launching spot for the Port of San Francisco and ferries to explore the Bay.
From downtown, it's easy to explore San Francisco's unique enclaves. By cable car, streetcar, taxi, your own car or even your feet, head out to explore the special places that make San Francisco such a world-renowned destination.
