My @Roomorama Picks for San Diego and San Francisco.
[google1][pinit count=”vertical” url=”http://www.beersandbeans.com” float=”right”]
If Tony Bennett left his heart in San Francisco, then his heart is clearly much smaller than mine, because I’ve left my heart in San Francisco and San Diego.
Yeah, that’s right my heart’s got enough room for two cities! Though to be completely honest, San Francisco and San Diego actually tore my heart in two. When I lived in one, I longed for the other. And after living in both for an extended period of time–and staying in hotel’s in each before–I believe that you can get a lot more out of your stay, especially when it comes to cost to value, by opting for a short-term rental apartment like the ones I have listed below.
San Diego: Luxury Urban Loft in the Heart of SD
When San Diego’s new ballpark, Petco Park, opened in 2004, it helped revitalize San Diego’s downtown, especially The East Village neighborhood where this loft is located. Where there was once disconnect in San Diego’s downtown between the famed Gas Lamp District and other neighborhoods, like The East Village, the revitalization has brought the downtown together making it a superb walking area with fantastic restaurants, shops, nightlife. Better yet, The East Village is just a short drive to some of the city’s best beaches.
Situated between the Gaslamp District and Petco Park, the loft provides the perfect setting for a trip to San Diego.
3 Reasons why I like it:
1. Location, location, location.
2. It’s loft, need I say more.
3. Free WiFi.

San Francisco: North Beach Lombard Apartment
Immortalized by Jack Kerouac and other Beat writers and poets, North Beach is the central nerve of the city. Its main corridors are electric, while North Beach’s back streets and alleys reveal a quintessential San Francisco neighborhood full of great history and architecture.
Additionally, North Beach is located between Fisherman’s and Market Street, and China Town is literally just an alley away in some parts of the neighborhood.
3 reasons why I like it:
1. Just look at that hardwood floor and awesome kitchen. I can’t think of a more perfect place to sit with a nice bottle of wine and cheese plate and have big discussions about life, except maybe Washington Square Park, which is just a short walk away.
2 Free WiFi.
3. Because Vesuvio’s in North Beach is the only place in America that makes a Kerouac–rum, tequila, orange/cranberry juice, and lime.
