Hotel Zephyr – San Francisco, Ca

Kids love Hotel Zephyr, a fun and funky hotel in San Francisco. It’s located right across from Fisherman’s Wharf, in the ideal location for family-friendly activities. Plus, the hotel has a huge courtyard, full of oddities, games and fire pits. Hotel Zephyr offers a “Spring Break on Us” package with a third night free, if you book before the end of January and stay between February and April 24.

What to Do: San Francisco is one of most easily accessible on-foot cities in America. You can see so much in one short weekend: Musee Mecanique, Pier 39, Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum, the San Francisco Dungeon, Alcatraz Island, Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory in China Town, City Lights Booksellers and Publishers, Ghirardelli Square, Golden Gate Bridge and on and on. And, if you’re tired of walking, or if you have little ones in tow, you can take the Big Bus Tour, which allows you to hop on and off wherever you choose or you can ride with Tower Tours to Muir Woods for some hiking adventures.
