San Francisco is a beautiful city – it’s full of culture, and sites we are are familiar with from Alcatraz to the Golden Gate Bridge. When looking for a place to stay – whether for a destination wedding or honeymoon – the lovely Hotel Griffon is a perfect choice! It is conveniently located near the Oakland Bay Bridge and the Embarcadero station, which is just a hop on the BART from the airport. I had a lovely stay, and I can’t wait to share it with you!
