Fitzgerald Hotel

A Taste of Vintage San Francisco

If you prefer cozy and intimate to ostentatious and cold, consider a stay at the Fitzgerald Hotel. This Victorian boutique mainstay gives visitors a taste of vintage San Francisco; it was built in 1910 and underwent a massive makeover in 2003, but it still retains the same classic touches that probably made it a tourist go-to back in its heyday (including an old-fashioned elevator).

A diminutive lobby leads to Fitzgerald’s elegant, intimately situated Hidden Vine wine bar, where guests can enjoy local varietals and some light appetizers before tucking in for the evening or heading out to a nearby nightclub or theatre. Guests can choose from several different types of rooms, from the choice Parlor Suite to the charming King Deluxe.

While rooms tend to be on the diminutive side, original paintings, plush comforters, designer appointments, highly competitive rates, free WiFi, and a complimentary continental breakfast add to the comforting vibe of the hotel. The romance of bygone days is complemented by Fitzgerald’s proximity to the theatre, food and shopping precinct of Union Square, which ensures that visitors are in the heart of it all.
