Here are a few of my favorite things I love to
do in San Francisco during the holiday season.
  1. Stay at my own hotels for the NO BULL SHOP package!
    Book now!

  2. Do get a non-fat Gingerbread latte at Starbucks to get rearing to go shopping Union Square SHOP! SHOP! SHOP! I have my H20, my licorice whips & my Red Bull, all compliments of Personality Hotels NO BULL SHOP package

  3. Have afternoon tea & goodies at Neiman Marcus Rotunda overlooking Union Square. A reservation in advance is a MUST!

  4. Westfield Shopping Center - Bloomingdale's
  5. Shop at Saks, Border Books, all the fun shops on Maiden Lane, Sur La Table, & the new Westfield Center

  6. Use the old I. Magnin's ladies room on the top floor of Macy's. Yes, it is still there with all the wonderful Verde green marble & very private stalls. It reminds me of my childhood. Here I refresh for more shopping!

  7. Deliver my shopping bags to the Personality Hotel of my choice where I am staying & then...

  8. Farmerbrown San Francisco
  9. Have a cocktail at Farallon at Kensington Park or a very refreshing watermelon margarita at Farmerbrown at Hotel Metropolis.

    Farmerbrown was just featured in Food & Wine magazine & has a great happy hour! Look for Farmerbrown in an upcoming People magazine as well!

  10. By now the time is dusk or so & Union Square is looking misty & frosty, (or is that the cocktail doing that?) so what a perfect time to window shop & look at all the great holiday decorations!

  11. Shop a bit more for those long lost relatives at either Urban Outfitter's lobby floor or Macy's Cellar. Lot's of fun gifty items to choose from.

  12. By now, we all know our feet are killing us and our stomachs are growling. So... dine at one of these restaurants: Then go back to my room & wrap my choice gifts in the very cool Andy Warhol Bull Shop wrapping paper & ribbon, compliments of Personality Hotels!
Now that is what really makes the holidays
on Union Square all wrapped up for me!
