Thanksgiving Travel Guide for San Francisco Hotel

Considering a getaway for Turkey Day this year? Well, look no further than Tilden Hotel in the heart of San Francisco, where you can enjoy decked-out boutique accommodations, great holiday-season attractions, and some gourmet Thanksgiving dining—without the cleanup!

Here’s an overview of some of the activities you’ve got at your fingertips on a Tilden Hotel stay in the City by the Bay for Thanksgiving weekend.

Ice Skating & Holiday Shopping at Union Square

Beginning November 6th and running through late January, Union Square—just steps away from Tilden—hosts a super-popular ice skating rink that makes the perfect Thanksgiving weekend activity. The rink’s open daily from 10 AM to 11:30 PM for sessions lasting an hour and a half; general admission (which includes skate rentals) is $18, with kids eight years old and younger getting in for $13.

Union Square’s also one of San Francisco’s premier shopping hubs, which means you can make some major headway on your holiday list on the heels of your skating idyll. Among the slew of stores here are Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, GAP, Banana Republic, Apple Store, the 49ers Team Store, Kate Spade, Nordstrom, H&M, Abercrombie & Fitch, Saks Fifth Ave, Gucci, Victoria’s Secret, and Louis Vuitton.


Take a Classic Bay Area Hike at Land’s End

Forming the southern end of the Golden Gate—the magnificent strait linking San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean—Land’s End delivers stunning views and a rich taste of Bay Area ecology and history. Part of Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Land’s End—which includes the headland that the Spanish called Point Lobos, or Wolf Point, for the “sea wolves” or sea lions that haul out here—lets you weave between shady Monterey-cypress groves and open cliffsides with unforgettable vistas of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marin Hills, and historic relics such as the Sutra Baths and nearshore shipwrecks.


Enjoy a Thanksgiving Feast On the Town in San Francisco

Wonderful as it can be to host a Thanksgiving dinner with family or friends, sometimes you want a holiday meal you don’t have to spend hours preparing—and then hours cleaning up after. Spending Thanksgiving weekend at Tilden Hotel, you’ve got some of the top restaurants in San Francisco right at your fingertips, which means a Turkey Day feast without the stress and the hassle.

Discover the extensive multi-course Thanksgiving menus on offer at Presidio Social Club (563 Ruger St), VILLON (1100 Market St), Zinger Ristorante & Jazz Bar (501 Post St), and Top of the Mark (999 California St), where you can pair your lavish meal with panoramic views of the city.
