Atop the crest of Nob Hill, this is quintessential, pedigree San Francisco. Flags of the world adorn the classical entrance, limos navigate the driveway, and cable cars crawl by. On the front lawn, a larger-than-life statue of Tony Bennett greets passersby, a tribute to the city’s anthem, “I Left My Heart in San Francisco,” first performed here in 1961. Take afternoon tea with honey harvested from the beehives on the hotel’s rooftop garden and don’t miss the legendary Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar.
