Just in time for Racked Travel Week, Curbed SF has updated its map of the city's most essential hotels, curated down to just 18 stellar spots from the previous version's 38. You'll find historical stunners like the Palace and the Fairmont, the glitz of the Intercontinental and Sir Francis Drake, the contemporary coolness at the Clift, and some lesser known spots including the Hotel Phoenix. If you or someone you know is soon to be a tourist, or if you'd just like to feel like one, head over to curbed for the entire map. [Curbed SF]
