In a city with boutique hotels aplenty, 1 Hotel San Francisco (formerly Hotel Vitale) is the best of the lot. International luxury hotel chain SH Hotels and Resorts took over the 15-year-old property back in 2020 and gave it a £21M makeover.

Each of the 200 rooms are clad in reclaimed wood and other eco-focused elements designed to bring nature indoors, including plenty of natural light. Guests have 24-hour access to Peloton bikes and state-of-the-art weight training equipment, weekly yoga and boot camp classes, and an 8th-floor spa with rooftop soaking tubs.

The location is excellent – on the revitalised waterfront (The Embarcadero), one block from the Ferry Building. The hotel has electric bicycles on hand for easy city exploring.

Early morning low fog at Golden Gate Bridge

A beautiful bayside city with home-grown authenticity, charmingly unique neighbourhoods and excellent locally-driven food. Home to the magnificent red-ochre Golden Gate Bridge and the world’s most infamous prison, Alcatraz.
