Live Like A Local in San Francisco
Located in Union Square, Hotel Triton is at the epicenter of San Francisco’s hustle and bustle. Because you could spend days exploring our downtown hub of shopping and culture, plus the white-hot neighborhoods just minutes from our front door, so we’ve narrowed it down to a few of our favorites.
One of the city's major centers of shopping and culture, Union Square delights with its big name shops (including the iconic Gump’s for high-end gifts and décor; Tiffany & Co. and Barneys New York), galleries, theaters and quintessential trolley cars.
See that cluster of high-rise towers located behind Hotel Triton? That is San Francisco's Financial District. Stay with us and you don't even need a cab to reach the city’s highest concentration of corporate headquarters, law firms and financial institutions, plus the Moscone Convention Center, a quick six-block walk from the hotel.
Located just steps from our front door, San Francisco’s Chinatown is the largest outside Asia and the oldest in North America. Just beyond the Chinatown gate, located at Grant Avenue and Bush Street, you’ll find a feast for the senses, ranging from gift shops to street musicians to savory dim sum.
Italian food with a side of San Francisco's Beat Generation? You’ve found North Beach, a world where world-class lasagna and Jack Kerouac poetry happily coexist. Other attractions include the indie bookstore City Lights, the Beat Museum, and Coit Tower at the top of Telegraph Hill.

From Union Square and Fisherman’s Wharf to the Embarcadero Center and the Ferry Building, here’s a list of our current faves.
