The sounds of San Francisco have returned this month with the constant hum of the cable car tracks on Powell Street and the thrilling sounds of the cable car bells ringing out as each conductor tries to best the next. Returning to the Suites at the end of the day, you will hear the moaning warning from the foghorn out on the Bay, and then there is the cawing of the occasional seagull flying overhead. Cable car bells, fog horns, and the cry of seagulls is Jazz San Francisco style.

The Broadway musical hit,” Hamilton” is performing at the Orpheum until September 5

The SF Giants play the Oakland A’s today at the Oakland Coliseum. Orange and black are definitely the colors of the day at the SF Suites.

The most coveted reservation at this time is for the elegant new Empress by Boon in Chinatown where the Empress of China restaurant of long ago was located. The stunning décor, views, and exciting menu from the Chef from Hakkasan makes finding a reservation impossible unless you book 3 months in advance. However, the secret is that they allow “walk-ins” to have a drink and order off the menu in the lounge.

Mayor Breed has announced that this Friday, August 20, there will be new vaccination verification requirements that will take effect in San Francisco for patrons of bars, restaurants, clubs, theater, entertainment venues and gyms.

At this time, the Suites are not requiring vaccination verification however you are required to wear a mask on property. You can also be reassured that all staff has been vaccinated.

So, bring your vaccination card or get your vaccination if possible so that you can enjoy all that San Francisco offers and don’t forget to order the warm Quiche Lorraine off our breakfast menu.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we join to stem the tide against the spread of Covid-19 and its variants. San Francisco Suites will continue to follow the local government guidelines including mask requirements.

I look forward to welcoming you home,

Cynthia Reid
General Manager
