How to Find the Best San Francisco Hotels with Venere

Nicknamed the "Paris of the West," San Fransisco is one of the largest and most prominent cities on America's Pacific coast. It is also the financial, cultural, and commercial capital of Northern California. A major center of the "hippie" counter-culture in the 1960s and the gay rights movement in the 1970s, the city still retains a reputation for left-wing political activism today. Despite these progressive influences, a number of major banks and international companies are headquartered in San Francisco. The city is also known for its cool summers and steep rolling hills. San Francisco has an excellent public transportation system and is ranked as one of the most walk-able cities in America. There are many San Francisco hotels to choose from; select the right one and you can reach beaches, comedy clubs, and museums without driving a car. The city is a good choice for your holiday if you like cool summers, art, museums, the ocean, trolleys, beaches, parks, and/or a vibrant gay community.
