San Francisco is chock-full of incredible eats, a vibrant nightlife and entertainment scene, and stunning bay views. Next time you find yourself in this bustling city – whether for work or play – consider reserving a room at the centrally located Hyatt Regency Downtown SOMA, which puts you near top sights like the Moscone Center and Union Square.

The Hyatt Regency Downtown SOMA is housed in a contemporary high-rise building. After making your way through the greenery-accented porte cochère, the modern aesthetic continues inside the lobby, which boasts a sleek neutral color palette, pops of greenery, wooden accents, and fun plaid flooring (plus a matching accent wall). There are also lots of comfy seating options, including leather couches and plush green-hued barrel chairs. The exclusive lobby-level Regency Club is equally chic with its stunning marble fireplace and dark wooden furnishings.
The 686 rooms and suites are also sophisticated with large windows (perfect for admiring the surrounding skyline), wooden floors and plaid-patterned carpet, light grey tufted headboards, comfy white bedding, and dark furnishing for a bit of edge. You’ll also find blackout curtains and multiple charging ports to power your devices. The black-and-white bathrooms are stylish, too.
The property’s central location attracts business and leisure travelers. When they’re not attending meetings or exploring the city, guests can often be found dining at the on-site French brasserie, people-watching in the lobby, or sipping on fresh coffee from the grab-and-go marketplace.
