I used this to plan my recent trip to San Francisco. Apparently, there is a newer edition out, which I didn't realize, but this is the one my local B&N had shelved. I felt like I learned a lot that I need to know before heading out to the city. The hotel I picked based on the books recommendation was very noisy though. I wish that had been mentioned somewhere. Some admission fees had increased (a lot in some cases), some hours had changed, and the one restaurant that we went to based on the dining recs had closed. This might all be fixed in the newest edition, but I did read this wishing that Rick Steves did American tour guides. It got us where we were going and we had a good time. What more can you really ask for?

Packed with info, but I especially appreciated the comparison charts for hotels and restaurants for quality and cost PLUS detailed listings later. There's a calendar of local events/festivals, details on BART, bus, train and boat tours, and a guide to weather (cold in August!). Details on star attractions, night spots and dancing, exercise opportunities such as health clubs, a climbing wall, in-line skating in Golden Gate Park, and fun things like driving down squigly Lombard street. Has good detail maps, but I bought a separate overall street map. My friend had a different guide and thought this one was much better. Lists Hours, phone nos. and emails for most everything too.
