Location of the Powell Hotel

San Francisco, California Boutique Hotel off Powell Street

On a map of classic San Francisco highlights, The Powell Hotel would be where X marks the spot - located next to the cable car turnaround, just above the Visitor Information Center and BART train station, across from the Westfield San Francisco Shopping Centre, and within three blocks of Union Square, the theater district, and Moscone Convention Center.

Downtown San Francisco, CA Hotel Destinations.

It’s exactly 25 steps from the front door of our Powell Street hotel to the cable car that climbs halfway to the stars up Nob Hill and down to the crab pots of Fisherman’s Wharf.  On the way, you can stop off for dim sum in Chinatown, grab an Italian espresso in North Beach, or visit the Cable Car Museum, where you can see the underground cables that pull the rolling historic landmarks up San Francisco’s steep hills.
