San Francisco Family Hotels

San Francisco with Kids - the best hotels

Recommended Family Hotels

Palace Hotel (luxury) – SoMa

A beautiful kid-friendly pool and jacuzzi are the highlights. Good sized rooms and a fantastic location half-way between the Ferry Terminal and Union Square, and steps from a BART and MUNI station make it nearly perfect.

The Four Seasons (luxury) – Union Square

A great location on Market Street. Beautifully decorated rooms with ample space. Greeting gift for young kids. No swimming pool but guests have access to the Marriott’s pool located a short walk out the Four Season’s side door. (There is a sports club on the ground floor of the Four Seasons with a junior olympic pool, but guests must be 16 and older to use these facilities.)

The Sheraton (luxury) – Fisherman’s Wharf

Very nice heated outdoor pool. Very close to pier 39, Fisherman’s wharf, touristy (kid-friendly) shops, and the cable car turnaround. Nice rooms that are good value for San Francisco.

Handlery Union Square (moderate) – Union Square

You can’t get much more central than this. A half-block from Union Square. Nice heated outdoor pool. Suites are great for families.

Hotel del Sol (moderate) – The Marina

Kids love this fun and brightly colored hotel. Heated outdoor pool. Free parking (very rare in SF). Free continental breakfast. Fun things for kids include cookies, milk, cocoa, dvds, library, and pool toys. Many good kid-friendly restaurants within a short walk.

Best Western Corte Madera (budget) – Marin

Huge family suites can sleep a family of 6. Deluxe rooms are smaller (and cheaper) and fine for a family of 4. Large heated outdoor pool, 2 jacuzzis, fire pit, and free breakfast. The hotel is located across the Golden Gate bridge from San Francisco. If you’re interested in the outdoor activities of beautiful Marin County or just want to enjoy a quiet spot outside the city this a great hotel and much cheaper than staying in the San Francisco.
