I’ve been to The Coit Tower and Twin Peaks. Now I’m wondering if any of the buildings in downtown are open to the public for looking at high views. I remember going to a restaurant in China Town once and seeing a nice view. I’m just wondering, there must be something. Not right now but after the virus lifts.

Difficult to say which hotels will reopen and which will be permanently closed. To my knowledge, all are temporarily closed at the moment and are converting to emergency housing for homeless and SRO residents. Tough times ahead for travel, tourism and hospitality businesses of all kinds. Many hotels in SF are actually boarded up with plywood.

That said, the two most view-centered hotels in SF (mostly due to their bars) I can think of are the Mark Hopkins on Nob Hill and the Marriott Marquis south of Market.

I haven't been to the Marriott (aka the jukebox) since before I lived here, but remember their view from the bar as impressive: https://www.marriott.com/hotels/trav...riott-marquis/

I take an out-of-town visitor to the Top of the Mark bar at their request every year or two, it seems. It's probably the best known spot for this kind of thing in SF: https: //www.intercontinentalmarkhopkins.com/top-of-the-mark

Alternately, there's a revolving restaurant atop they Hyatt on the Embarcadero and a nice terrace facing east on top of the Fairmont on Nob Hill, too, that's accessible from the lobby.

EDIT: One more--the view deck at the de Young museum in Golden Gate Park is free and open to the public under normal circumstances. The urban view is from far away, but the view of the west side of the City out to the ocean and the Bridge is beautiful.

When the virus situation is over, then Salesforce Tower I'm sure has amazing views--http://www.salesforcetower.com/

...or the Marriot Marquis supposedly has a bar/restaurant with fantastic views as well.
