Hotel Zephyr San Francisco

Travel Tuesday: I left my heart in San Francisco at Hotel Zephyr to be exact

We had less than a day and one night to spend in San Francisco, so we wanted it to count! The best decision we made was to book a room at what is possibly the coolest hotel on Fisherman’s Wharf. Just one night at Hotel Zephyr not only provided a great home base from which to explore the city but it was also a destination in itself. You’ll have to watch the Periscope videos I made below to get a taste of what I mean.

Our room was not large but the interior design was so hip. There was even a magnetic dart board, which my kids loved.

Hotel Zephyr used to be the Radisson Fisherman’s Wharf and it spans over the entire block bound by Jefferson, Powell and Beach St. It has this totally hipster vibe with it’s maritime theme, one-of-a-king upcycled art pieces and the use of recycled corrugated metal and cargo containers as furniture. And yet, it was also super family-friendly, with a game room and a back patio with unique and welcoming fire pits and more.

Here’s the Periscope video I shot not long after we arrived. Thanks to I was able to save the live stream.

Hotel Zephyr San Francisco features 361 guest rooms and stunning views of the San Francisco Bay and it’s right next to Pier 39! The decor is playful and quirky and the staff is so warm and friendly. The common spaces have such a “community” feel that makes it easy to relax and even make new friends!

And speaking of new friends, I met Kevin “KT” Thomas, Senior Sales Manager of Hotel Zephyr San Francisco, the next morning for a tour of the hotel. I live streamed the hotel tour using Periscope and it was so entertaining to have Kevin there with me. He was a hilarious guest, we felt like we were on a live TV show.

And as live programming goes, we did hit some snags (like the hotel key not working) but it made the video even more delightful.

Kevin shared that there would be even more cool things coming up at the funky pet-friendly hotel. We cannot wait to return. You can check out some special hotel deals from Hotel Zephyr here. Be sure to follow them on social too @hotelzephyrsf on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
