I spent the last week in San Francisco for the Hilton Garden Inn General Manager and Director Sales conference. During this time, I had the opportunity to visit several key spots in San Francisco, eat some great food and meet some great people. Hilton provided to opportunity for some of my enjoyment but the rest was brough about through some exploration. At the conference, there were several, very influential speakers. Among them was a man by the name of Mark Gungor, a Puerto Rican Pastor/Comedian who speaks at marriage seminars. Why he was the conference, I have no idea, but he was hillarious (video clip below).
I stayed at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square, which was down the street from none other than Union Square! The area is rich with culture. All types of food and shopping is available in the area and it serves as a secordary financial district to San Francisco's actual Financial District. A wonderful area. In my time I got to explore the city, I went to Ghirardelli Square, where Hilton held receptions on my first and fourth night in the city. I also went down to the Fisherman's Wharf, where I had gone a couple of years ago on a visit to San Francisco and the rest of the bay area, and Little Italy.
Like I mentioned before, I also had some amazing food. There was a little Moroccan restaurant two blocks down the street from the hotel that blew me away (and I can't remember the name), a little Indian restaurant called Little Delhi that has won tons of awards and had the best butter chicken I've had since India, and pizza at Tony's Pizza Napoletana in Little Italy. Tony's was also the winner of a bunch of awards and it had some good Yelp! reviews.
