I will be visiting San Francisco October 17th for a few days and I would like to hear of some places to stay that are centrally located to most of the major attractions (Golden Gate, Nob Hill, Fisherman's Wharf, etc). I have never been to San Francisco and I don't want to stay somewhere that may not be safe to walk around at night.
Couple of hotels I have read about elsewhere are Hotel Carlton, Francisco Bay Inn and Nob Hill Motor Inn. Good, bad or no comment????
Looking for something reasonably priced (my idea of that is no more than $150/night).
Any suggestions on rooms, restaurants, attractions would be greatly appreciated!
