Saturday, January 30, 2021 my sweet hubby Gary and I decided to head into San Francisco and spend a fun day in the city. It’s the first time since before March 2020 that we’ve been in downtown San Francisco because everything went into lockdown due to the Covid pandemic. Just 2 days ago the Governor started allowing some businesses to reopen and outdoor dining to resume but we are still in the purple tier so the utmost precautions, masks, and social distancing  is a must.

It had rained that morning but was already drying out with sunshine starting to come through as we made the 50 mile drive into the city. The drive was pretty quiet. Not too much traffic as folks appeared to still be staying home for the most part. The blue sky was brilliant and the sun was out as we made our way over the Golden Gate Bridge.

Hotel Zephyr San Francisco Review

The Hotel Zephyr San Francisco Wall Mural Popeye

I am so excited to tell you about our stay at a San Francisco boutique hotel called The Hotel Zephyr. We specifically chose this hotel for its location and theme; nautical and located right in the heart of San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf with amazing views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island. The guest rooms have porthole windows and “SOS” bedding. Anything novelty or kitsch and we are there!

The Hotel Zephyr San Francisco Nautical Theme SOS

The Hotel Zephyr in San Francisco is a family friendly motel with over 300 rooms and decorated in a nautical theme with a fabulous courtyard filled with seating areas, multiple fire pits, retro games that are life-size like Connect Four and Jenga. There is also a vintage 1950s Shasta trailer serving up snacks and beverages and then there is an amazing game room filled with comfortable seating, ping-pong tables, pool, and table shuffleboard. So much to do right there at the hotel!! The lobby is so cool with shipping container wall panels, porthole windows and seating, rope buoy lighting, an incredible wall mural of Popeye the Sailor Man and lots of spots to plugin and sit on comfortable sofas and chairs. There is also a retro style photo booth.

It was on July 20, 1969 when the first moon landing happened with astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins on the Apollo 11 and it was the most thrilling time for space exploration in our nations history and the world. I wasn’t born yet, but outer space travel, discovering new planets and galaxies, and that question of are there aliens or Martians and just the fascination of what would it be like one day for humans to live in space have always fascinated me.
