You can leave your room and within minutes find yourself sitting with a coffee in one of several public green spaces.
Jessie Square fronts the Contemporary Jewish Museum, across from Yerba Buena Gardens.

Built atop an underground parking garage and flanking St. Patrick Church, the square is designed to be both a meeting place and a complement to the surrounding architecture.

Coffee can be found on Market Street at The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (773 Market Street), or at Blue Bottle Coffee in Mint Plaza.
Mint Plaza is an award-winning public space that incorporates rainwater runoff capture within an elegant site design and provides seating on its iconic orange chairs, which are left scattered for users to arrange as they like.
There is, of course, a Starbucks on 3rd Street at Market, and, for non-carry-out beverages, easy-going Dave's bar is just across from your hotel.
Market Street, from your hotel at 3rd Street up to 5th, is stuffed with places to shop, from Walgreen's drugstore to the Westfield Center, er, Centre.
We apologize in advance for any part of life's rich pageant along Market Street that might get weird. Around here, we just roll with it.
