Recommended Hotel: The Moser
Why: Best Rates, Complimentary Airport Shuttle
There are sixteen hotels near the Powell Street BART station in the heart of San Francisco, but we’d start by looking at just three, Hotel Fusion, Hotel Zetta, and The Mosser. All three are boutique hotels with rates averaging $200 or below. The brand name hotels in the area like the Marriott and Hilton average well over $200 per night. The Mosser is the cheapest at just $130 per night and offers a complimentary shuttle to the airport. The main drawback to The Mosser is the small rooms, but if you’re mostly planning to sightsee and just sleep in the hotel, this shouldn’t be a problem. All three hotels have an on-site restaurant and valet parking for a daily fee. The Mosser and Hotel Zetta both offer breakfast for purchase, while the Hotel Fusion does not have a breakfast option. The Marriott and Westin also have on-site restaurants, breakfast for purchase, and valet parking, but parking is more expensive and you’ll have to pay for WiFi in your room whereas it’s free at all three boutique choices. Given the boutique options are less expensive and all the options are clean and located near BART, we recommend The Mosser.
