Getting around San Francisco is easy if you're staying at The St. Regis San Francisco.
First, it's important to know the difference between the city's two transport systems, BART and Muni. BART serves the general Bay Area and is your fastest route to the hip Mission neighborhood. Otherwise you'll probably take Muni, which has a system of streetcars, light rails and buses.
The good news is that Market and Third Street are just a block from this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, and they’re served by all light rail stops and most bus lines. The bad news is that Muni is notoriously unreliable and frequently slow.
However, even if you normally shun public transit, it's worth taking a ride on Muni's F-Market line. The route, which goes from Market Street to Fisherman's Wharf, uses vintage streetcars and provides for a heck of a good time.
