When the Mayflower opened its doors in 1929 just north of Union Square, the San Francisco Chronicle billed it the “last word in modern guest accommodations.” Today it falls into a different, but equally appealing category, of a wonderfully maintained older hotel that offers a sense of history and the individual details that you don’t find in today’s modern chains. The hotel has a stunning art deco lobby and rooms that are by turn quaint and quirky, as well as clean and comfortable. Although there are no restaurants, or pools on the premises, kids and parents alike tend to love the family suites featuring two connected rooms, where families can spread out like they do at home.
