Golden Gate Bridge Hotels

The Golden Gate Bridge is sun-kissed San Francisco’s top architectural marvel - a grand fire-orange suspension bridge stretching 1.7 miles across the glistening Golden Gate strait. The bridge shoots out from San Francisco’s upscale Golden Gate neighbourhood, a spacious green-washed area overflowing with bayside parks and heritage sites. Downtown San Francisco is a short distance east of here, bursting with upscale shopping hotspots, hip bohemian hangouts, and family-friendly pier amusements.

Things to see

Begin your bright San Francisco morning by ambling along the Golden Gate Bridge itself. This vast, majestic suspension bridge was built in the 1930s, and champions retro Art Deco details - from clunky old-world street lanterns to embossed tower decorations. The bridge’s iconic gold-orange colouring allows it to be seen through San Francisco’s heavy white fog - but on clear days, it brightly blazes in the Californian sunlight. After, explore Presidio park, a fir-studded recreation area and former military base criss-crossed by nature trails. In the Presidio, parents can take their kids to the Walt Disney Family Museum, where informative and hands-on exhibitions recount Walt Disney’s life. If you’re feeling adventurous, finish your day with a boat trip to Alcatraz Island, home to the infamous Alcatraz Prison complex. Today, you can take a guided tour the eerie prison ruins - overground with red and purple flowers - and learn about the complex’s captivating history.

Where to stay

The immediate urban area beside the Golden Gate Bridge is the Marina District, just southeast of Presidio Park. This booming upscale bayside neighbourhood is ready to burst with trendy independent stores and Cal-cuisine restaurants. Families looking for an entertaining area full of kid-friendly activities should stay east of here, in the waterfront Fisherman’s Wharf area, which sings with old-school arcade amusements and fresh seafood restaurants. Splurging shoppers and energetic city explorers, meanwhile, should stay in the thrumming heart of Downtown San Francisco - near Union Square - where department stores, theatres, and bouncing bars abound.

How to get to Golden Gate Bridge

San Francisco International Airport is based just 16 miles south of the Golden Gate Bridge. This huge and busy airport serves year-round flights direct from many top European cities, including London, Amsterdam, and Paris. At the airport, hordes of taxicabs await to whizz you to your San Francisco hotel - a drive to the bridge takes around 25 minutes, outside of traffic. Alternatively, you can jump on the BART rapid rail line from the airport, and ride it to stations in Downtown San Francisco - this journey takes around half an hour. To explore the city, make use of the metro subway lines, extensive bus network, and above-ground streetcars.
