For Poetry Lovers: Tilden This modernist hotel, whose renovation wrapped in March, is decorated with local art and hosts a rotating roster of artists in residence. It’s even home to a poet in residence, Tenderloin-based Jesse Johnson, who can often be found at the hotel’s watering hole, the Douglas Room. There’s an expansive lobby and bar, where food is served until 1 a.m. The Hummingbird Garden, with lush greenery and a babbling brook, is an ideal spot to read a slim book of verse.
