City Hall - Review

Yet another Beaux-Art monument resulting from the city beautiful movement from the early twentieth century, this building has much to recommend it, not the least of which is its dome, the fifth largest in the world. Stunning from both the outside and inside, the building has been featured prominently in varius blockbuster movies, which includes a Bond movie (A view to a Kill), The Rock, The Towerng Inferno and Dirty Harry. The tourist trap here is the magnificent rotunda.

City Hall, San Francisco Reviews

  • Beautiful building and hard to imagine this is just a city hall building. Warning to any tourists, this was not the safest area. There are 2 modern playgrounds in front of the building. This is technically part of the tenderloin, though it feels safe initially, use caution when exploring particularly with children.

  • This is a beautiful building in a dangerous area. Go figure. City buildings are generally downtown, & downtown in most world class cities can be dangerous. Fun bit of trivia: the dome on SF City Hall is ranked 5th tallest on the planet! Don't miss the art in the basement level!

  • Beautiful building. Good visit place for tourists. Followed a free guide through the building. The lady that guided us was very polite and answered all our questions. A lot of weddings and a beautiful place to take pictures

  • I live in the Bay Area and have been going to the festival of the chariots in San Francisco for as long as I can remember.It's a big deal to my whole family. This year it seemed like we all had the same concern SAFETY. We ended up deciding Not to go. We are going to make the drive to Los Angeles and see the festival there.With all the drug use and criminal behavior the homeless the poop apps the epidemic car breakin's it's just not worth it. to me It seems like the city is encouraging this behavior. San Francisco is not a safe city and not worth our time. Sucks I used to really like going there.

  • Beautiful architecture. Lots to photograph. Must visit place if you are visiting SF. Free entry. Reading about history if building and SF.
