Everything aligned: We were invited to a meeting of the regional
advisory council for The
Wilderness Society in San Francisco, it was Jan's three-day weekend,
and it was Carl's birthday. Off to The City we went, leaving thoughts of
the kitchen turmoil behind us.
We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel
Palomar, a new hotel in an old building at Fourth and Market. It's
an ideal locationóright at the end of the cable car tracks, above a
BART/Muni rail station, adjacent to the F
line with its historic streetcars, and just a block from Union
Square. And it's a beautiful place; the rooms are small but elegantly
furnished and appointed. We highly recommend Hotel Palomar.
The weather was beautiful, as you can see in this shot from Alamo
semicircular sixth-floor lobby at Hotel Palomar, with its parquet floor,
typifies the hotel's unique style.
