Luggage Storage in San Francisco

There’s so much to see in San Francisco it’d be a shame to not use every minute of your visit to explore! Many travelers depart the city late in the day, leaving them to wonder what to do with their luggage at checkout. No one wants to traipse our crazy hills dragging a suitcase or wearing a big backpack!

If you are a guest at Pacific Tradewinds, we have you covered. We have free luggage storage on the day of arrival before check-in is available, and the entire day of check-out until midnight. So feel free to explore away!


Are you leaving San Francisco for a side trip to Yosemite or somewhere else nearby and don’t want to bring your entire suitcase? We also offer guests long-term luggage storage in San Francisco for $1 per day, per bag, with a minimum of $5. You can either utilize this before your stay, if you have an upcoming reservation or after your stay if you have a returning reservation.


What about if you aren’t a guest staying with us? There are still options for San Francisco luggage storage for you too!
