Find Your Zen in San Francisco
Whether you’re traveling, working, or on-the-go, it’s important to make time for yourself. Find your inner zen. Power down and relax. Here are some ways to take it easy in San Francisco.
Outdoor beach yoga & meditation
Check in with yourself at an outdoor yoga class or meditation session. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Outdoor Beach Yoga SF features sessions on Baker Beach and Ocean Beach. Sessions leave you feeling connected to yourself and relaxed in nature. Bring a towel and feel the cool sand during a daytime warm up. Additional info at Outdoor Yoga SF.
Visit the Japanese Tea Garden
Step out of the city and into this relaxing tea garden in Golden Gate Park. Scenic walkways, pruned-plants, gentle koi ponds, a five-story pagoda and benches offer a quiet reprieve from the surrounding bustle. Admission is free Monday, Wednesday and Friday before 10 am. There’s also a small café on site if you’re in the mood for matcha or lighter fare. See map.
Take a walk through the redwoods
There’s nothing more peaceful than a walk through the woods. Luckily, one of the most beautiful groves with the oldest trees in the country are located less than an hour from San Francisco. See our day trip guide to the redwoods and plan your outing to Muir Woods ahead of time.
Enjoy herbal fusions at a tea bar or at Stanford Court
Hot outside and in the mood for boba tea? Or is the San Francisco fog making you long for a piping hot chai? Luckily, this city has great tea options. Plus, Chinatown is a quick walk from Stanford Court so you know you’re in good hands. Stay in and have a tea, or check out our favorite local tea bars to see which best matches your mood – from botanical blends to bubble tea served to the tune of hip-hop music.
Sleep in comfort with JamBox
Nothing puts you more at ease than a good night’s sleep. During your stay at Stanford Court Hotel, ask the front desk for access to a Jambox speaker. Tune into white noise and enjoy a peaceful night of sleep. Also make sure to select the best pillow for your stay with our Nod Hill sleep program, which offers guests hypoallergenic or feather pillows to best fit individual preference.
Keep up a balanced diet and active lifestyle while in SF by checking out the fitness center during your stay at Stanford Court Hotel in Nob Hill. The center overlooks the iconic streetcars of California Street. Power up with top-of-the-line exercise equipment such as our Kinima.fit interactive stations, Precor equipment, Peloton stationary bikes and more, available for use around the clock.
