San Francisco is a tourist mecca for many reasons--gorgeous views, impressive architecture, stellar food and, of course, world-class shopping. If you're here to shop, nix the typical Fisherman's Wharf accommodations and opt to stay near Union Square instead. These hotels are all within steps of designer boutiques, major department stores, discount retailers and a healthy dose of those amazing restaurants we were talking about, too.
