I am headed to San Francisco for a week in October, and I’d like to hit up a spa while I’m there. Do you have any recommendations for good spas? I’m thinking I’d like to get a facial and a massage? Something in the $200-300 range?I have far too little experience with spas in San Francisco! I usually go to this semi-horrifying, extremely-cheap place in the Sunset. I've had good experiences at the Bliss Spa in the W Hotel, Kabuki Springs & Spa and at Relax Now. My friend Jill raves about the Burke Williams Spa and I know someone who works at 77 Maiden Lane. I hope that helps Elizabeth pick! Here's my outfit recommendation:
Sweater - A cashmere hoodie is comfortable, soft and easy to get on and off.
Jeans - White jeans feel a little fancy for a day at the hoity-toity spa.
Sandals - Won't damage your new pedicure.
Sunglasses - For making the sans-makeup, post-extraction trip home.
Cream Puffs - My favorite apre-spa snack is a giant cream puff from Beard Papa on Yerba Buena Lane.
Now I'm craving a visit to the spa (and a cream puff)!
