Best Hotel Views in San Francisco(21 of 22)

 But that's nothing compared to the views from the Panoramic Suite.
The Mandarin Oriental is on the top of the third tallest skyscraper in San Francisco. Window-lined hallways on all the guest floors -- called Sky Bridges -- offer remarkable views like this one. Rooms at the Mandarin Oriental are on the top 11 floors of the building, giving them stunning views of the city below. The hotel even provides Bushnell binoculars. The Top of the Mark bar on the 19th floor, one of the hotel's best-known features, has dazzling 360-degree views of the city. Alcatraz can be spotted from the Top of the Mark. View of the Transamerica Pyramid and the Bay Bridge from the Top of the Mark. The glass elevator to the 31st floor offers great city views -- and you don't have to be a hotel guest to make the trip. The view from the aptly named Grand View Room in the hotel's 32-story Modern Tower. The Fairmont's lofty perch on Nob Hill gives some of the rooms superb views. Bring a good pair of binoculars or a zoom lens to see Alcatraz this well. A closeup view of Coit Tower from the Deluxe King Room. The Golden Gate Bridge is visible from the elegant Crown Room event space on the top of the tower. The Huntington's hilltop perch means the rooms, like this Park View Room, have great park or city views. A central location means the InterContinental San Francisco can offer its guests plenty to look at, even from the standard rooms. From the highest floors of this 32-story tower, such as the Bay-View Executive Room, you can see a sliver of the bay. But the best views are from the Bay Suite. The living room and bedroom are both lined with floor-to-ceiling windows, and there's even an extra window near the bathtub. A closer view, taken from the same Bay Suite The windows at this hotel may be small but the Bay Bridge views they provide are anything but. (Be forewarned: Some rooms have views of a cement wall, but Bay View Rooms are a safe bet.) The guest rooms in this 32-floor hotel offer stunning city views from their bay windows. A close-up of the view from a Club Room. The famous Transamerica Pyramid can be seen in the background. Of course, the views at Parc 55 become even more spectacular once the sun goes down. Waterfront rooms have beautiful views of the San Francisco Bay and the Bay Bridge. But that's nothing compared to the views from the Panoramic Suite. Or, better yet, the Landmark Terrace Suite, which offers stunning views both indoors and out. Guests here overlook both the Ferry Building Marketplace along the Embarcadero waterfront and the Bay Bridge, the latter of which is seen here.
