Hotel Bijou

This lodging isn't about charm as much as it's about price. The Bijou (its 65 rooms are named for movies shot in San Francisco) stands next to a sports bar on a block of hostels just off Market Street. It's near Union Square, but the rooms are small and often less than $120 a night. On a January stay booked through, I paid $83. To dodge sports-bar noise, ask for a room on the fifth or sixth floors. 111 Mason St.; (415) 771-1200,
