Retro motor lodge turned hip motel in the Marina District, with cozy rooms, a pool and kid-friendly amenities
In San Francisco’s Marina District, Hotel del Sol is a 1950s motor lodge turned colorful value sleep close to Fort Mason and Fisherman’s Wharf. Cozy guestrooms are connected by central communal balconies and transformed from their 1950s roots into colorful, contemporary crash pads in bold orange, teal and yellow shades. All have double, queen or (in the executive suite only) king beds, plus 32-inch flat-screen TVs and compact ensuite bathrooms. Continental breakfast (juice, bagels, coffee and pastries) is free for all guests, and there’s also an afternoon spread of milk and cookies. A hit with families, the hotel operates a Kids Are VIPs program that offers a lending library, welcome amenity and, in the summer months, snow cones on Fridays and Saturdays. For parents, there’s the quiet courtyard that’s strung with colorful hammocks, an offsite fitness center and movie library. Everyone has access to the heated outdoor saltwater pool and free morning town car service to the Financial District and local convention centers.
In the Area
Naturally, you’ll spend some time roaming the Technicolor eateries and souvenir shops of Pier 39, but the best of San Francisco lies off the beaten track. Take a short walk to Hyde Street Pier, a fun alternative to its crowded counterparts. You can walk it for free — the views of Alcatraz are epic — or pay a small fee to board the historic boats moored there. Down the street, at the end of Pier 45, you'll find the nostalgia-rich Musée Mécanique, full of old-school coin-operated arcade games that range from turn-of-the-century moving dioramas to child-of-the-'80s Pong. To explore further afield, hop on the cable car and ride it all the way to Hyde Street, a few blocks from the boutiques and cafés of tree-lined Hayes Valley, and from there venture into the Mission for the city's most exciting restaurants, including Argentine-styled Lolinda and Central Kitchen, which has a pretty open-air courtyard.
