Take a Tour of Alcatraz Island

Touring Alcatraz Island is on every San Francisco visitors' bucket list. Housing notorious convicts such as Al Capone and George "Machine Gun" Kelly, Alcatraz Island, are steeped in mystery.
Take one of the Alcatraz Island tours with a scenic ferry ride across San Francisco Bay before exploring "the Rock." Although the federal prison has long-been decommissioned, the prison's main cell block is still intact. Through a narrated Alcatraz self-guided tour, you'll enter the dark cells, tour the mess hall and visit "the black holes" of solitary confinement. You'll learn about daily life at the prison, its history, and its infamous inmates. The grounds also offer walking trails with amazing views of San Francisco and the Bay. Prepare yourself for an unforgettable experience near our SoMa hotel.
