Galleria Park Hotel

The Galleria Park, which is in a building that's more than 100 years old, underwent a renovation that updated its facilities and look while keeping its Art Deco artwork and lovely skylights. This boutique hotel is just a block off Market Street, within walking distance of Union Square and one of San Francisco's oldest restaurants, Tadich Grill. A well-appointed mini-bar, comfortable bed, free Wi-Fi and an outdoor jogging track and garden on the third floor make this an appealing urban oasis. 191 Sutter St.; (415) 781-3060, Doubles from $161.
