- Karen Brown's Recommendation:
Facing historic Washington Square, The Washington Square Inn has a great location in North Beach with its wealth of wonderful little places to eat. Turn right out the door and walk up to admire the city and bay views from Coit Tower or turn left and stroll the few blocks to Chinatown. A two-minute walk finds you at the Mason cable car line which takes you to Pier 39 or Union Square. The inn is the quintessential “Karen Brown” property with a parade of delightful bedrooms decorated with predominantly French antiques and a welcoming staff that go the extra mile for guests. Because of its city location do not expect the majority of the rooms to be large in size. However room 8 with its window seat overlooking the park and cathedral and room 7 with its corner window looking towards Coit tower and the park are very spacious king-bedded rooms. Two very small rooms and two rooms with their dedicated bathroom across the hall are especially good value for money. A hearty breakfast is set out in the morning (breakfast can also be brought to your room), in the afternoon enjoy tea or wine and hors d’oeuvres in front of the fire, coffee and tea are always available.
