Extended stays at exotic locations should be on everyone’s travel bucket list (who wouldn’t want to spend a month-long honeymoon in Tahiti?), but don’t underestimate the power of the classic weekend getaway. Escaping your regular schedule for a few days, exploring a new area, and treating yourself to room service in a luxury hotel is more than enough to recharge your batteries and indulge in some alone time with your significant other. For couples in need of a destination with colorful culture, gorgeous views, and a fantastic food scene, spending a romantic weekend in San Francisco is the perfect option. The City by the Bay is lively and eclectic, but without the stressful hustle and bustle of other cosmopolitan regions. Fill your itinerary with these places and activities for an unforgettable San Francisco weekend.

Where to stay:

Begin your weekend by checking in to the iconic Clift Royal Sonesta. A fixture of San Francisco since 1913, the Clift has been a favorite hotel among discerning travelers with an appreciation for history, art, and design. Choose from a variety of accommodations including airy studios, spacious deluxe suites, or go all-out with a private apartment. Room service is a must, and plush beds and sprawling living spaces may tempt you to stay in for the whole weekend (it’s perfectly fine if you do).
