Posted on 28 May 2010

Hotel Adagio – San Francisco

Posted on 06 May 2010

From scoping out the most authentic tacos in the Mission district to inhaling the flower power of Haight + Ashbury, we were too busy for the check-in at the Adagio Hotel to be anything other than quick, hasty even, in order to get back out to the exciting streets of San Francisco.
