The Golden Gate Bridge, in San Francisco, is one of the most famous bridges in the world. At the time of construction in 1937, the 4,200-foot (1280.2 meter) long suspension bridge was the longest in the world. In San Francisco, there are many restaurants with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge. One of the best ways to explore this attraction, however, is to check out the most Instagrammable tours and spots in San Francisco. Cycling across the Golden Gate Bridge is also a popular tourist activity, but if you want to be able to see the bridge from your hotel, where do you start?

Start right here with these eight hotels, which have picture-perfect views of the Golden Gate Bridge for you to enjoy.

1. Loews Regency San Francisco

This high-rise hotel offers skyline views across downtown San Francisco to the Golden Gate Bridge in the distance. The bedrooms feature floor to ceiling windows, comfortable seating areas and the perfect view to wake up to, in the morning.

2. The Fairmont San Francisco

If you are looking for a grand and extravagant hotel stay, with views of the Golden Gate Bridge, then this pick ranks high on the list.

3. Argonaut - A Noble House Hotel (from USD 187)

With its amazing design features, such as exposed brick walls and a country-feel in the rooms, this is a welcoming and unique hotel to stay in during your visit to San Francisco. We particularly love that each room has a maritime theme, including port windows as mirrors and compasses on the headboards. The lounge area is a particularly nice place to relax and unwind.

4. Intercontinental Mark Hopkins

This high rise hotel is in a towering landmark building of the Nob Hill District and on its top floor, in the Sky Lounge, you’ll be treated to a 360-degree view. The bedrooms are modern and spacious with pastel colors and wooden furniture.

5. Comfort Inn by the Bay (from USD 86)

In a good location, near the famous, winding Lombard Street, this hotel offers a comfortable and clean room to rest in and a daily waffle breakfast! The views are best seen from the private rooms but be sure to request a room with a view before you book - just to make sure!

6. Hilton San Francisco - Union Square (from 284 USD)

Located in downtown San Francisco, this Hilton hotel is also home to the Herb N’ Kitchen deli and a fantastic courtyard pool. If you want to relax even more, be sure to visit the hot tub! The views of the Golden Gate Bridge are best seen from the higher level suites. You can also bring your pets along to stay with you as Hilton San Francisco - Union Square is one of the top pet-friendly hotels in the area.

7. Le Meridien San Francisco (from USD 170)

In the financial district of San Francisco, this hotel is nestled amongst the busy streets. We love the attention to detail and creative design in each room - the walls are covered with large topographic maps of the surrounding mountains and hills. The suites are open plan and feature numerous comfortable seating areas, as well as wide windows through which to enjoy the view.

8. Lodge Cavallo Point - Sausalito (from USD 389)

Ok, so this listing is technically not San Francisco, but it is just a short drive over the Golden Gate Bridge and it offers the best, and we mean the best, views of the bridge itself. Located in Sausalito, this historic hotel is welcoming and you can expect cozy rooms with a few mod-cons. The lobby serves light refreshments and the hotel sometimes has live music playing. This hotel has a bit of everything!
