The best way to explore San Francisco’s unique neighborhoods is by walking them, especially if led by a local expert. The Washington Square Inn’s new “Footloose in San Francisco” package offers a chance to do just that. It offers 20 percent off regular room rates, plus a $20 credit per couple towards any of Walk SF Tours’ escorted walks.
Guests may choose the Chinatown & North Beach Tasting Tour with food tastings, the Beats in San Francisco Tour with entrance to the Beat Museum, or the Gold Rush Drinking Tour with cocktails and appetizers.
With the discount, room rates range from $159 to $279. Walk SF Tours range from $30 to $60 per person. “Footloose in San Francisco” runs through April 30, 2014, holidays and special event days excluded.
The 15-room Washington Square Inn has a prime location in North Beach, San Francisco’s “Little Italy,” fronting Washington Square Park.
Guests enjoy a complimentary European-style breakfast every morning, afternoon wine and hors d’oeuvres, free wireless Internet access and many other amenities.
All rooms in the renovated 1910 building have private baths, and some have fireplaces, bay windows or other architectural features. Many rooms have beautiful views of the park, or landmarks such as Saints Peter and Paul Church and Coit Tower.
