Local Attractions

Discover San Francisco

All the best of the city is yours to explore when you stay at BEI San Francisco. We’re just two blocks from city hall and the Civic Center, and only a five-minute walk to Hayes Valley—one of San Francisco’s coolest neighborhoods.

With the iconic Orpheum Theater and a fresh farmers’ market only steps away, all the arts, entertainment, shopping, and dining you crave is close by. Plus, if some of those epic San Francisco landmarks are on your must-see list, you’ll be half a block away from the city’s extensive BART transit system.
