Tips from the Grand Hy­att San Fran­cisco concierge.

Q: What are some of your fa­vorite San Fran­cisco stores?

A: My top fa­vorite store in San Fran­cisco is Gump’s. It’s like ther­apy. From the mo­ment you walk in the doors, you’re en­veloped in the ex­quis­ite scent of the beau­ti­ful life. I can also spend hours at any mu­seum store, most es­pe­cially the one at SFMOMA. You’re al­ways guar­an­teed an es­o­teric find.

Q: What's your fa­vorite San Fran­cisco neigh­bor­hood for shop­ping?

A: I love strolling through the Va­len­cia cor­ri­dor, where you can be hip and trendy with­out even try­ing. I love the mesh­ing of the Latino her­itage of the neigh­bor­hood with the present hip­ster move­ment.

Q: Where’s your fa­vorite San Fran­cisco photo op?

A: Deep into Lin­coln Park Golf Course there is an amaz­ing look­out that can­not be ri­valed. Lo­cated at the 17th hole, you stand on a beau­ti­ful green, hushed spot over­look­ing the outer edges of the San Fran­cisco Bay framed by the en­tire length of Golden Gate Bridge.

Q: Where do you send vis­i­tors with a sweet tooth?

A: I send them to Teuscher’s Cho­co­late for the Cham­pagne truf­fles. Or they can buy Cham­pagne fla­vored gummy bub­bles at Su­gar­fina. And the most sub­lime pear sor­bet in San Fran­cisco, found only at Mitchell’s Ice Cream, goes great with Cham­pagne!
