Depending on your plans and your budget, options are easy when traveling to San Francisco, there are plenty of luxury, boutique, and family oriented places to choose from.

Hotel Diva is a great family friendly option. One really cool feature is the "Little Divas Suite." It's designed for kids, but families of four can enjoy this playful suite. Kids even have their own check-in! The best part for the savvy kid traveler, complimentary use of an I-pod shuffle filled with music appropriate for them during their stay. They will also receive a couple coupons for kids' hot chocolates at the Starbucks which is adjacent to the hotel. Rates start at $249 and the hotel gets bonus points for allowing your kid's best friends to join in the fun, their pets!! E-Mail them at reservations@personalityhotels.com

If you're interested in a boutique hotel, I can recommend the W Hotel San Francisco. This is a totally modern and chic hotel located next to the Museum of Modern Art. It faces the colorful Yerba Buena gardens and is close to Union Square's shops, & the Waterfront. The bar located in the lobby is a favorite spot for visitors and well known by locals. Ask for a room with a cool chic upholstered window seat and be sure to unwind at the Bliss Spa located adjacent to the glass-roof pool. Doubles start @ $211.00
