San Francisco's climate makes it popular throughout the year, but for the best weather, plan a trip for September or October. That's when the city is dry, mostly sunny, and reliably warm enough for you to wear short sleeves during the day. As Mark Twain famously observed, despite being in California, San Francisco can be chilly throughout much of the year, including the summer months. Another lovely time to stay at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Taj Campton Place is the holiday season, when you'll be less than a block from Union Square's beautiful Christmas tree and ice skating rink — not to mention the Macy's windows, which are filled with adorable kittens waiting to be adopted from the local SPCA.
