I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The location is great--near the water and on the bus route so it is a great base for exploring the city. Two blocks from great restaurants and shopping on Union Street, and two block from great bars on restaurants on Chestnut Street. Very safe neighborhood when walking around. The hotel offers...

Booked this hotel after reading the great reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. Took a cab from the airport which cost us $53.

Hotel Del Sol is an average motel located in the Cow Hollow area. The rooms could use some updating, but they are clean and comfortable.

This hotel's location cannot be beat. You are so central, everything of interest to tourists, is minutes away. The parking is included, which is awesome. The rooms are not huge, but spotless. Very colorful. Breakfast is included, and is ok, not great. But saves you a few dollars, if you are traveling on a budget. The staff is great, Oscar...

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Designed to celebrate California's lively culture, the Hotel Del Sol is a cheerful explosion of the West Coast spirit. Once a 50s-style motor lodge, it has been newly transformed to offer the stylings and personalized service of a boutique hotel. The spacious guestrooms evoke the bright and airy interior of a California beach house. Relaxing hammocks, a sparkling pool and towering palm trees in the courtyard is a colorful feast for the eyes. ... more   less
