For those of you in the Bay Area you may be familiar with Santana Row. Or like me maybe you have never been. I was invited down for a getaway and was excited to experience this charming luxury shopping, dining and travel oasis just an hour or so south of San Francisco. See more about my weekend getaway to Santana Row below.
Arriving to the Hotel Valencia for our over night stay
Checking into Hotel Valencia. The lobby is so chic, yet elegant.
The lovely patio which the guest rooms overlook where there are private events and we also enjoyed the complimentary guest breakfast Sunday morning.
Views from our room of the incredible pool. See more of the pool fun below!
After taking in the pool views from the room there was no way I was not going to spend some R & R at this pool. It’s so incredible, views overlooking Santana Row’s shopping and restaurants (see below)…
Views of Santana Row from the hotel pool. How amazing you can be downstairs shopping then one minute later relaxing at the hotel sunbathing. This truly is my kind of destination. The best of both worlds, shopping, dining, lounging and fun!
I’ve officially arrived and am relaxing by the pool enjoying this amazing South Bay summer weather. Why does San Francisco not have this sun or heavenly summer vibe to it? Just another reason why Santana Row is the perfect spot for a quick 24-hour or 48-hour (if you have the time) getaway!
There is an incredible roof top bar at the hotel called Cielo which we visited for a glass of bubbles before dinner. This setting is perfect with mountain views and just a picturesque setting for drinks. I highly recommend if you get the chance to stay at Hotel Valencia that you plan for some roof top drinks at Cielo during your stay!
On our way to dinner at Left Bank… I mean this place is so cute dinner was literally a block from the hotel. No need for Uber just a casual stroll in charming Santana Row!
Left Bank was one of my favorite parts of our 24-hour stay at Santana Row. It was very special because of the incredible service, the delicious food, the restaurant setting and really just amazing. If you visit Santana Row be sure to dine at Left Bank. I recommend the Mussels, Roasted Chicken and their wine list is great too so have fun with that!
The delicious Roasted Chicken entree which was a fabulous. After enjoying Mussels and Pomme Frites to start this was the perfect filling, yet light meal with tons of flavor and yumminess!
Farewell Santana Row it’s been a lovely stay! Hope to come back again soon.
Thanks to Santana Row for sponsoring this post and collaborating with me on a weekend getaway from San Francisco to your lovely district of Santana Row!
