Greetings guests of the Hotel Griffon! Did you guess what iconic San Francisco building is featured behind me in the picture? It’s the San Francisco Ferry Building!
The San Francisco Ferry Building first opened in 1898 and was the main gate for ferry and train travel into the city. At the time, the ferry was the only way for all residents of the East Bay and those travelers not coming from the Peninsula to get into San Francisco. The Ferry’s Building clock tower was originally modeled after a cathedral in Spain and is now a well-known symbol of San Francisco.
