San Francisco Hospitality

Five Star Hotels and Restaurants

Because choosing from the vast array of San Francisco's excellent hotels can be a daunting task, watchLAB recommends the Kimpton Group hotels. Kimpton offers a superb hotel just four blocks from our downtown San Francisco Studios. And as a watchLAB client, you will enjoy discounted room rates not only in the Bay Area, but at any of the dozens of Kimpton hotels throughout the US.
