Shopaholics will love the location of the Grand Hyatt, just around the corner from Macy's, Saks Fifth Avenue and scores of other Union Square retailers. The high-rise hotel, which just underwent a $70-million renovation, has spectacular city and Bay views, a grand lobby and Hyatt's signature bedding, with plush mattresses, pillows and duvets. If you're looking for cozy, this isn't it; it's more for the convention crowd, which accounts for 30% of the hotel's business. 345 Stockton St.; (415) 398-1234, grandsanfrancisco.hyatt.com. Doubles from $169.
