Billed as San Francisco's oldest continually operating hotel, the 58-room Hotel Majestic was built in 1902 and survived the famous earthquake of 1906. Situated in a five-floor white Edwardian building in a Victorian residential neighborhood in Japantown, this upper-middle-range property features lavish interiors with antiques, antiquarian books, chandeliers, fireplaces. Guest rooms include four-poster, minibars, and free Wi-Fi. Most rooms, though, do not have air-conditioning. The hotel is far from major tourist sights and doesn't have a pool, sauna, or fitness center, but it exudes a gracious, romantic ambience, and is a good choice for travelers in search of vintage character.
