Lots of hotels strive to be hip, but this irreverent, Mid-century motor lodge in San Francisco's Tenderloin has a rock 'n' roll soul with more than a little edge.
Not surprisingly, it was named one of America’s coolest hipster hotels by Travel + Leisure in 2012.
The Phoenix is your way of getting connected with what's going on locally.
Our colorful desk staff (who wouldn't be caught dead at the front desk of a Ritz-Carlton) is truly knowledgeable about the city's hidden treasures and can let you in on where the party is.
The Phoenix Hotel is centrally located within walking distance to San Francisco's most celebrated clubs and performance halls, including Great American Music Hall, the Warfield, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, the Opera House, Golden Gate Theater, and the Orpheum Theater.
The Asian Art Museum and government buildings and courthouses of the Civic Center are less than three blocks from the hotel. Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, Union Square and the Financial District are a short ten-minute drive away.
Great American Music Hall
History practically oozes from the frescoed walls of this old club. Built in 1907 as a restaurant/bordello, it still retains the swank charm of its past in the ornate chandeliers, columns and heavy drapes.
Slim's is a live music nightclub dedicated to providing the public with excellent service, a congenial atmosphere, good food and drinks, and the finest of American Roots Music.
Great outdoor dining on the water as you watch big ships repaired that are in port.
