Area Travel Guide

The "City by the Bay" is a vibrant, bustling, yet charming experience. Getting around the city is convenient using MUNI, the public transportation system which includes buses, trolleys, underground and surface trains and the famed cable cars. Truly experiencing San Francisco involves visiting its neighborhoods… the colorful Mission and Castro Districts, countercultural Haight Street, upscale Pacific Heights, exotic Chinatown, and ethnically rich North Beach… and the best way to experience them is on foot. Hiking, opera, Alcatraz, fishing, theater, dim sum, windsurfing, Japanese tea ceremonies, sea lions, golf, crooked streets, steep hills, world-class shopping, modern art… San Francisco is a diverse metropolis brimming with excitement and activity.

Whether you wish to explore the sights and sounds of the city, or simply unwind and relax, your stay at The Donatello will be a feast of wonderful activities. Nearby, the bustle of Union Square offers a wealth of shopping, dining, and cultural activities. The city's other landmarks are just minutes away, from the silent beauty of the Golden Gate Bridge, to the eclectic charms of Fisherman's Wharf.
