Hotel Griffon Coupons and Deals
Michelin-rated restaurants, trendsetting bars, Victorian architecture, pristine beaches, cutting-edge art—it's no mystery why San Francisco draws nearly 16 million visitors annually. And this week's Escape to Hotel Griffon, named Best Boutique Hotel by San Francisco magazine, offers yet another reason to get away to the City by the Bay. Set sail for one night in a Deluxe Queen or King Room on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, and get complimentary parking, wireless Internet access, nightly turndown service, and coffee and fruit in the lobby from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. ($139). Whether you call San Francisco home or it's on your bucket list, you'll find this eco-friendly hotel, which looks east over the Bay and west into the Financial District, to be a great home base from which to experience the city. A short walk north on the Embarcadero will lead you to the stately Ferry Building, home to a three-times-weekly farmers' market and a bunch of restaurants and shops (try Hog Island Oyster Company for a dozen Kumamotos and a glass of Champagne). From there, you'll have access to citywide public transportation, just across the way on Market Street, but you can also hop on a ferry bound for Alcatraz, Sausalito, or Angel Island. A handful of museums and galleries are also close by, like SFMOMA, the Jewish Contemporary Museum, and 49 Geary. And when it's time for dinner, leave Rice-A-Roni behind—40-year-old Perry's is attached to the hotel and serves upscale home-style dishes—think meat loaf and deconstructed chicken pot pie—in a relaxed yet urbane setting. While you may be one among 16 million other travelers who choose San Francisco this year, you can bet they'll be riding the trolley to Fisherman's Wharf and gawking at the seals. You, on the other hand? You've chosen the road less traveled with this week's Escape.
