Historical Landmark Makes for a Hip Hideaway in San Fran

Have you ever noticed new hotels don't spring up often in San Francisco? Come to think of it, there aren't many good hotel options at all, in my opinion. So when I heard the first new hotel since 2009 had opened in April of last year and won a spot on Fodor's Top 100 hotels list already, we passed on our St. Regis reservation to stay within the walls of The Presidio, an old military base at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge that turned out to be so much more!
