Argonaut Hotel -- Not only is it near all the funky kid fun of Fisherman’s Wharf and the National Maritime Museum, but this bayside hotel also has kid-friendly perks like scavenger hunts, board games, kid-friendly movies, the chance for each child to grab a gift from the hotel’s “treasure chest,” and a Wii system in the lobby.
Beresford Arms Hotel -- The Parlor Suite can sleep up to a family of seven and comes with a full kitchen and dining room—all for around $200. The Junior Suite sleeps six and costs only $159. Located a few blocks from Union Square, this Victorian charmer is perfect for families on a budget wanting a little extra space.
The Fairmont San Francisco -- While the glamorous lobby and spectacular city views will please parents, kids will be thrilled by the hotel’s Tonga Room, a fantastically kitsch Disneyland-like tropical bar and restaurant where “rain” falls every 30 minutes.
Hotel Del Sol -- It’s colorful enough to represent a Crayola selection, but tots are more likely to be impressed by the “Kids are VIPs” program that includes a lending library, toys and movies, evening cookies and milk, a heated pool, and a nearby park. Parents will be happy to find a two-bedroom family suite.
Hotel Diva -- The sleek, mod Diva has all sorts of fun kid-friendly perks. Check out SF’s version of the Walk of Fame right outside the door, and definitely ask about their two-room Little Divas Suite, with bunk beds, drawing tables, and a TV loaded with kids' movies.
Ritz-Carlton -- The Ritz has a Very Important Kid program with a kid-sized in-room tent for your room, coloring books, and milk and cookies at turndown.
Seal Rock Inn -- The Seal Rock’s setting—surrounded by parks, across the street from the beach, and just a few minutes from the zoo—is a real draw as are the hotel’s suites with kitchenettes.
Stanyan Park Hotel -- Plenty of elbow room and a half-block walk to Golden Gate Park’s Children’s Playground make this a prime spot for crashing family-style. But the biggest bonuses are the suites, which come with one or two bedrooms, a full kitchen, and a dining area.
Westin St. Francis -- A classic San Francisco hotel down to its hospitality, the Westin welcomes little ones with gifts and toys, including coloring books, crayons, and a rubber ducky. Kids love riding in the glass elevators.
