The Castro Theatre was built in 1922 by pioneer San Francisco theatre entrepreneurs, the Nasser brothers, who started with a nickelodeon in 1908 in the Castro neighborhood. The Castro was built at a cost of $300,000. The Castro's designer was Timothy L. Pflueger (1894-1946) who went on to become a famous Bay Area architect. In 1977, the Castro was designated City of San Francisco registered landmark number 100. It is one of the few remaining movie palaces in the nation from the 1920s that is still in operation.

San Francisco’s allure lies brilliantly in merging expectations with flashes of unpredictability. Few cities can compete with the world-renowned Golden Gate Bridge or the storied past of Alcatraz Island. Fewer still embrace taking the familiar and marrying it to the unknown.

But combine that with walkable neighbourhoods like Union Square brimming with exquisite museums, international fine dining, boutique shopping and vibrant cultures pressed against one another, and San Francisco creates a magnetic appeal that solidifies its perch on sophisticated travellers’ must-see lists. The ultimate hotel experience and San Francisco vacation meets a charismatic and popular destination near the heart of The City by the Bay.
