Most Beautiful Places To Stay In The Bay Area

By DeAnna Taylor


The Bay Area is known for its stunning views, the Golden Gate Bridge, and for being home to America’s wine country.

If you are planning a trip, be sure to check out this list of some of the most beautiful hotels and accommodations that the Bay has to offer.

The Mill Rose Inn

This luxurious bed and breakfast is located about 28 miles outside of San Francisco. It is situated on the beautiful California coast and provides just the right amount of relaxation that you need. This early 1900s cottage was transformed into a bed and breakfast and has been in business for over 40 years.

Auberge du Soleil

A French restaurateur birthed this Napa Valley getaway. Sitting on over 30-acres, you can stay in one of 50 guestrooms or suites. This hotel is dedicated to giving each of its guests their own unique experience while providing one of the most beautiful backdrops The Bay has to offer. Some of the rooms even provide outdoor showers and tubs. That is the perfect recipe for relaxation.

Hotel Zelos San Francisco

Not only is this hotel beautiful, but is one of the most centrally located hotels you can book in San Fran. Part of the Viceroy Hotels chain, this place will put you steps away from some of the most popular attractions that the city has to offer. The rates are affordable, with prices under $200 per night most days.
