A San Francisco Marina District Hotel

Hotel in the San Francisco Marina District

When organizers selected the Marina District as the site of the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition World's Fair, they did it with good reason. In addition to the enviable waterfront location, they unveiled the Palace of Fine Arts which remains in its original location (popular with both visitors and locals). Less than a mile and a half from our hotel, this elegant neighborhood with its stylish architecture, boutique shops, trendy restaurants and vibrant nightlife is a must-visit on your San Francisco stay.
