Meet Skittles

We’re so excited to have Skittles as a part of the Golden Gate family. She’s been living here since December, and she’s already made quite the impression on the other staff members and guests alike. 

Skittles is a sweet and charming 3-year-old tabby cat adopted from the San Francisco SPCA.  She’s been spreading so much happiness around here, and it definitely helps our guests feel at home.

Golden Gate Hotel

Built in 1913, Golden Gate Hotel exudes warmth and originality. Its façade is one of the most distinctive along Bush Street. Inside, you’ll discover 23 guest rooms, each with totally different design and décor—no two rooms are alike! Choose between rooms with private, en-suite bathrooms (many of which have original claw-foot tubs) or European-style rooms with separate, shared bathrooms down the hall.

Though San Francisco is a fast-paced, modern city, relics from past eras are still peppered throughout the cityscape. Golden Gate Hotel is a stunning example of a property steeped in history and imbued with retro charm—it’s one of the most distinctive and inviting hotels near Union Square. Savor its traditional ambiance, boasting floral elements, beautifully maintained wood furniture, and unique features like a vintage bird-cage elevator. Breakfast is served in the parlor, a cozy space with crown molding and an ornate fireplace.

Great San Francisco Location

Located on the very edge of the Union Square neighborhood, Golden Gate Hotel puts you at the crossroads of some of San Francisco’s most exciting neighborhoods. There’s so much to do and see within walking distance or a short cable car ride. When you stay with us, the best of the city is at your fingertips.

Union Square itself is a hotspot, boasting a wide array of restaurants, theaters, art galleries, and nightlife venues. Even more activities and attractions await in the surrounding neighborhoods. See a Broadway show in the Theater District, enjoy the museums and landmarks of the SOMA district, or enjoy fresh seafood and superb views at The Embarcadero, home to the iconic clock tower. See the sights in famed neighborhoods like Haight-Ashbury, Nob Hill, and Castro. Visit ever-popular landmarks like The Golden Gate bridge (our namesake!), The Painted Ladies row of Victorian houses, Lombard Street, and Golden Gate Park.

Though the Bay Area is known as a bustling metropolis, this region is filled with splendid natural areas, including Point Reyes National Seashore, San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge, and famous peaks like Mt. Diablo. Napa and Sonoma in the north lure oenophiles from far and wide with scenery that’s as renowned as the region’s wine.
