Why I Love San Francisco


Sure our brand is based in NYC, but that doesn't mean we don't stray a little in our love of the Big Apple. The city that's catching our eye right now is San Francisco. I'm told the city is just 7 miles wide. It certainly felt intimate and walkable on our recent visit.

Our team was there to work. We skipped Mom 2.0 Conference this year to spend time marketing our business out West. It was a good, good investment of time, energy and money.

First, I love the architecture--the shabby-chic neighborhoods that fringe the modern corporate buildings. I love the bridges and the rolling streets. I love that neighborhoods cling to their flavor by block. We stayed in a tourist-friendly part of town at a Personality Hotel. Our hotel, Kensington Park, had old-school charm-lots of moldings, dark wood and rich carpets.


The hotel shares a space with the San Francisco Playhouse Theater. There are 93 rooms and a luxe lobby that serves tea & coffee in the morning and afternoon sherry every day. Business note: the internet was FAST!

Right next door we had drinks at the Jellyfish Bar and dinner at Farallon. The Asian-inspired seafood menu was the perfect blend of healthy and flavorful.


The hotel is steps away from world-class shopping. For us it was also walking distance from many of our meetings. When we weren't walking, we were using the super-efficient Uber car service. The rates are about 50% of the prices we pay in NYC and the drivers were so prompt and courteous! Don't miss out on the special packages here

I popped over to another Personality Hotel to use the gym--the Diva is modern and edgier--another great option for visitors. The gym was clean and well-equipped. Location: 440 Geary St.
