How not to leave your dollars in San Francisco

In a city where you can leave your heart –  and lots of cash –  a springtime San Francisco hotel deal can help you  save. 

The city’s tourist office, in cooperation with some  hotels, has created “49 hours in San Francisco” with sightseeing itineraries and a discount of  25 percent on hotel bills for a three-night (or more) stay. The deal is good through April 30 for hotels booked through the 49 Hours website  (or call 800-655-6751).


Twenty-one hotels are part of the “49 hours” discount deal.  They aren’t among  San Francisco’s tip-top hotels,  but some are well-located and very comfortable. They include  the Hotel Union Square in the heart of the city (although not right on the square ), with rooms from $161 a night. Or check out the Nob Hill Motor Inn, a budget hotel with rooms from $99 (and  take off 25 percent if you book through  the “49 hours” deal). It’s walking distance to Fisherman’s Wharf.
