SoMa—which stands for South of Market—is a vibrant San Francisco neighborhood at the hub of the city’s dynamic arts scene. You’ll find everything from Oracle Park (home of the Giants) to the acclaimed San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. In between lie buzzy nightclubs, artisanal coffee houses, lauded restaurants, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Moscone Center and the bustling waterfront along the Embarcadero.
Through a unique collaboration, Hyatt Regency San Francisco Downtown SOMA celebrates the arts community by incorporating curated student works into the hotel’s public spaces along with featuring pieces inside our executive and presidential suites.
Known to locals as simply SF MoMA, this iconic art museum features more than 30,000 contemporary and modern paintings, photographs, sculptures and designs from the 20th century, all housed in a chic and minimalist setting.
