    I am looking for a hotel or B&B in or around the Financial District. I was on the net and hotel seem pricy. Any great hotels in the area that are not over priced. I don't mind paying but I don't need the plaza either.

    Never looked for SF lodging myself, but a friend stayed at the Travelodge at 1707 Market and it was super cheap. It's in a random neighborhood, but is close to everything.

    I love the SF Hotel des Arts. They are right outside the gates to Chinatown, I think, a short walk from the Financial District, and they are a hip little hotel. They got a bunch of local artists to paint entire rooms, which are bad-ass. Check it out:

    You have to reserve the painted rooms specifically, of course, since they are all entirely different. And be careful, some rooms don't have full baths, it's kind of European-style. Some do, though, so just pay attention to which you book.

    Oh, wait, it says all the painted rooms are queen bed, full private bath. $100/night. For SF that's pretty cheap, especially since they're awesome.

    Last time in SF I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in the Financial District. It was reasonably priced for the area of SF. It had a reasonably well equipped workout area plus a pool on the roof (25th or so floor loooking at the Transamerica Building and overlooking the bay). Chinatown was across the street. There was about a four to five block walk to a main public transit center that could get you almost anywhere in the city. Beware, if you drive a car parking costs as much or more than the room.

    Overall, a nice place to stay without all of the "I stayed at a Holiday Express" BS.
