Legend has it – given a good plan and good shoes – you could see all major SF sights in just one day. It sure seems possible in a city 47 square miles in size. But... why hurry a good thing? Don't be a tourist – be a mobile citizen. Book a night (or three) of California dreamin' in a giant citizenM bed and take your time.
Book direct and pick the mycitizenM rate to save at least 6% off your stay. All you need is a free membership (get it while you book, it's easy).
