With plenty of activities to enjoy, the San Francisco Auto Show (November) or exciting 49ers football games. Private jet travelers are spoilt for choice when it comes to accommodation too. A raft of luxury hotels have emerged in recent years, from the traditional small riads to large palatial resorts, such as the St. Regis, Fairmont and Taj Campton Place.
