stylish stays in san francisco (via trip styler)

san francisco crafts a unique cocktail of old-world luxury and contemporary california style. known for its bohemian spirit and start-up cachet, the city by the bay is the perfect spot for a getaway filled with charming neighbourhoods, wine, shopping, world-class restaurants and, did i mention, wine?
