The Chelsea is our first choice for a San Francisco getaway. Not only is the price reasonable for San Francisco, but it has free parking and is conveniently located a few blocks from trendy Union Street (note: not Union Square). The rooms are large enough, and the furniture is typical motel-style. The beds are comfortable. Each room has a coffee pot, iron and ironing board and hair dryer. The rooms facing the street have large bay windows, but are noisy. The rooms on the "inside" have windows with a view of an airshaft but are considerably quieter. In the morning, we like to go to one of the nearby coffee houses for breakfast. Tully''s, a few blocks away, is also a favorite for an afternoon coffee and pastry. Isa restaurant (see separate journal) is walking distance, and there are buses on Union and on Chestnut, both a easy walk away, that will take you to Fisherman''s Wharf, Chinatown and Union Square. If you''re a AAA or AARP member, ask for the special members'' rate.
