We stayed close to Nob Hill, and walked around here every night. Lots of cute shops and great food. Wonderful area to do some shopping or just take a stroll any time of day.

We stayed in this area and loved it. Residential mixed in with great restaurants, bars and coffee shops. Street car runs up and down, and easy access to downtown by either walking or taking an uber.
