Interested in traveling to San Francisco? With tourist attractions like the Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39 and Alcatraz Island, there are plenty of ways to get caught up in the excitement the city has to offer. But don't just settle for an ordinary hotel during your visit. Treat yourself and book your stay at one of the best ones the City by the Bay has to offer.

Here are nine of the city's best places to stay during your vacation or business trip:

1. The Scarlet Huntington
Boasting décor inspired by Chinese heritage and high-fashion luxury, the Scarlet Huntington offers a sophisticated stay in Nob Hill - one of the most attractive neighborhoods in the city. Enjoy a complimentary cup of tea and superb customer service as soon as you walk through the door.

2. St. Regis San Francisco
Book a grand suite at the St. Regis and enjoy a rainforest shower, minibar and multiple flat-screen televisions. Besides the upscale accommodations, its location, modern décor and friendly staff give it an impressive reputation.

3. Inn at the Presidio
Renovated from a former Army base, Conde Nast Traveler calls this ritzy hotel "a Pottery Barn catalogue come to life." The historic spot gleams rustic-chic from the inside out, with a balcony of wooden rocking chairs, an entrance way with a cozy fireplace and rooms filled with dark-leather sofas and antique accents.

4. Hotel Drisco
If you're looking to book a room that's located near popular San Francisco sites - like the Golden Gate Bridge and the Palace of Fine Arts - check out Hotel Drisco. The intimate atmosphere and high-quality customer service will make you feel like royalty. You'll also receive a menu of various pillows to choose from, gourmet honor bars and nightly turndown service, making your stay as luxurious as can be.

5. Palace Hotel
In 1875, the Palace Hotel began welcoming guests and was dubbed the world's largest and most luxurious hotel, according to U.S. News & World Report. An earthquake destroyed the property in 1906, but the owners reconstructed its replacement just three years later. For the ultimate relaxation experience, make sure to enjoy an afternoon tea under the glass ceiling and crystal chandeliers located in the Garden Court.

6. Cavallo Point
Offering breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Cavallo Point offers an equally relaxed and deluxe atmosphere for your travels. Rooms are spacious and comfortably furnished, and each one comes equipped with gas-burning fireplaces, flat-screen televisions, top-of-the-line linens and mini-fridges.

7. The Argonaut
Looking to stay in a place with an ambiance similar to a luxurious cruise? Look no further than The Argonaut. Enjoy beautiful views of the San Francisco Bay while you sit back, relax and enjoy the lush surroundings. An impressive fitness center, spa and business hall are just a few of the great amenities offered.

8. Taj Campton Place
Welcoming guests for over 100 years, the Taj Campton is one of San Francisco's most prominent landmarks. It's close to the city's financial district, multiple art galleries and museums so you'll never run out of things to do while you're there.
