About Downtown San Francisco
Downtown San Francisco features the Financial District, which is primarily a business district that borders between Market Street and Kearny and even towards the Embarcadero, the eastern waterfront roadway, which sits atop an engineered seawall. The SOMA (South of Market) District is a residential area formed into luxury loft work and living spaces. Another exciting aspect of downtown is Union Square, which is home to some of California's best shopping and dining attractions. Top restaurants in this area include: The Cliff House, which serves up an assortment of fine food and wine, and Rotunda Restaurant, offering some of the best selections of lobster and champagne. Up a distance from Union Square is San Francisco's prestigious Nob Hill neighborhood, filled with mansions and elegant and famous hotels like the Fairmont, located off of Grant Avenue. Transportation options are good; you can access the Muni buses and the T-train easily.
