Both the Wharf and Union Square are pretty icky.  I would recommend Nob Hill.

If you can, check out the Post Ranch in Big Sur.  It’s AMAZING!

I second staying away from fisherman’s wharf and union square. I recommend soma, nob hill, north beach. I live here so I’ve never stayed in a hotel but my family has stayed at the stanford court in nob hill and liked it. there’s also airbnb.

In NYC, A couple of cool boutique-ish hotels that you should look into won’t totally break your budget (but are still pricey, it is nyc!) are: the Eventi, the Carlton, the NoMad, and the Bryant Park Hotel.  They are all in midtonw or midtown south.

Have fun!

We stayed in the Union Square area and thought it was fine. It was really conveniently located to most of the stuff we wanted to see, and we could jump on the cable car right in front of our hotel to get around. There’s a ton of shopping in the area as well. I would not have wanted to stay near the wharf personally, that was way too cheesy/touristy for me.

Big Sur was really our favorite part of the trip though.

aussiejenn:  What is your budget per night for NYC hotels. Also, how do you feel about the subway. Cabs are okay for late night on the weekends when the trains are all sorts of messed up (“construction”) but it adds up pretty quick.

We will be spending a few days in nyc after our wedding (have been many times). Check out any of the affinia hotels…they even have one in dc. We will be staying in chelsea…at the wyndham garden chelsea. It is a very basic hotel with small rooms but I love the area…and close to subways.

aussiejenn:  for DC, I would recommend staying in Arlington or Alexandria, close to a metro stop.  Both are cute little cities in their own right, and you will get more bang for your buck staying in VA than in DC. The DC metro is extremely easy to use for seeing the major sights. An added bonus of Arlington or Alexandria, is that they will make for an easier and likely less expensive trip to Reagan. I had a great stay at the Le Meridian in Arlington a couple of years ago. You can even walk across the bridge to Georgetown from the hotel. However, there are tons of hotels in the area, so if you go on tripadvisor or scour for deals, you should have no problem finding something good.
