    Russian Hill
    Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
    neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
    Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
    antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
    visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
    Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
    Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
    and make the slow creep downhill past charming period

    Parking is free, but I'd say they only have about 15 spots. I got there early and it wasn't a problem, but it filled up fast. It's one of the last hotels in the Wharf area with free parking that I know of.
