“Airbnb has brought new customers to my store that would not have otherwise left the well-worn Union Square and Fisherman’s Wharf tourist trail. We appreciate that adventurous Airbnb visitors seek ‘real’ San Francisco, and it doesn’t get much more local than the Clement Street corridor. We also believe Airbnb guests are sometimes better at buying local, i.e. not sending their money out of San Francisco via online shopping.” —Pete Mulvihill, co-owner of Green Apple Books

“It’s our honor to be a favorite amongst Airbnb hosts. As a premier Chinese cuisine destination, we are proud to present our culinary creations to guests from all over the world. Whether you are looking for traditional dim sum, hot pot, or our unique Five Guy Shanghai Soup dumplings, there is something to satisfy everyone at Dragon Beaux.” —Dennis Leung, owner of Dragon Beaux

“When Airbnb guests stay in the Richmond, they discover our proximity to all the museums and other attractions. They experience our vibrant and easy-to-navigate corridor, with great dining options and local arts. Hopefully, they share their raving reviews with others, and help raise our corridor’s profile to residents and visitors alike. We love Airbnb hosts’ enthusiasm in recommending their guests to patronize our corridor, and that hosts are so generous with compliments to our local businesses.” —Yuka Ioroi, owner of Cassava
