We had a spectacular view from our hotel room. That's Alcatraz off in the distance. The closer island, before the mountain.
And I never really adjusted to Pacific Coast time, so I saw an awful lot of this out the other side of the room - we had a really awesome corner room that was basically two walls of windows.
The Golden Gate Bridge was spectacular.
And Lombard Street really is super steep and very crooked - we walked to it, down it, up it, and back down again.
