Travel for Kids has so many fun things to do with kids in San Francisco, whether it's riding the cable car, taking a boat ride to Alcatraz, walking the streets of Chinatown, sampling gelato in North Beach, exploring ships at Fisherman's Wharf, flying kites at the marina, checking out the Golden Gate Bridge, eating chocolate sundaes at Ghirardelli Square, but you'll need a fun place to stay. Kid-friendly hotels are easy to find on Travel for Kids.

Here's our own Travel for Kids hand-picked list of family friendly hotels in San Francisco, all styles and price ranges, and in neighborhoods near to fun things to do with kids. Hotels are selected for their amenities for families, such as suites that sleep 6, rooms with mini-fridges or fully-equipped kitchens, swimming pools, babysitting services, on-site restaurants with children's menus, coin-operated laundry, and more. Hotel policies can change, however, so be sure to check with the hotel at the time you make your reservation to be sure your desired family amenities are still available.
