Looking for a good spot to take in views of Leo Villareal’s 25,000-LED sculpture on the Oakland Bay Bridge? Consider San Francisco’s tallest hotel. Mandarin Oriental, San Francisco is tempting guests with its commanding vantage point of the Bay  Lights sculpture with nightly rates from US$575 for rooms offering views of the bay. The hotel—celebrating its 25th anniversary—offers 158 guest rooms and suites on the top 11 floors of San Francisco’s third-tallest building, 345 California Center. The Bay Lights, which has cost around US$6 million so far, is the world’s largest light sculpture—around three kilometers wide and 150 meters high. It is set to shine from sunset until 2 a.m. every night for the next two years. Reservations can be made here.
