A freshly renovated room at historic, English-inspired boutique hotel in downtown San Francisco

King George Hotel has been catering to discerning San Francisco travelers since King George V himself sat on the British throne, back in 1915, when it opened for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition. Today, you can still admire its distinctive exterior, painted scarlet and forest green, and elegant common areas. Accommodations have benefited from the addition of modern amenities, like a KEYPR service tablet and HDTV apiece, but the larger hotel shows off classic, European-inspired décor.

Its location is also just as desirable as it was in the boutique hotel's early days. Downtown is as action-packed as ever, and you’re right in the heart of it. Exactly one block away is Union Square, with a mind-boggling selection of shopping destinations, not to mention transportation connections to Nob Hill, Fisherman’s Wharf and beyond. At the end of a day spent sightseeing, you can pay homage to another British leader of yore, over an hors d’oeuvre and game of chess at Winston’s Bar & Lounge.
