1) San Francisco, California
San Francisco is a beautifully liberal city with steep hills, thick fog, gentrified neighborhoods, stunning west coast infused cuisine, and some of the best local and regional art you can find. While anything in California is subject to a lofty fee, there are some San Francisco hotels that provide comfort, convenience, and safety for a very low nightly price. SoMa, otherwise known as South of the Market, is one of the more affordable and culturally vibrant neighborhoods in San Francisco. Locals and tourists can indulge in the hipster chic room design and decor of area hotels including Good Hotel, which employs eco-friendly materials and technology to help reduce the carbon footprint left by its diverse visitors. The hotel’s efficiency allows for complimentary features such as its bike loan system for commuting around town. Many area hotels also encourage artistic expression of travelers passing through, which often results in various art supplies and chalkboard style paint strewn about the rooms.
