Got a corner room in the tower so the view of S.F. was spectacular. Room was small but very comfortable. Address of the hotel is misleading to those who drive as there is no entrance at the address. Finding the car entrance took seven block detour.
We stayed in an Imperial Club Room which was like a suite and means I would expect the comfort and luxury we got for the price we paid. My reviews are totally based on this and obviously if you stayed in a normal room you will have a different experience. Extra things are included when you pay for an Imperial Club Room. We also requested a quiet room if possible so were high up and had no issues with noise (this was based on previous reviews where people had issues with noise). The shower could have been a bit more powerful but was okay.
The location No.
The room on the 23rd floor that included breakfast. Overall the staff could have been more customer friendly. The seating process for Thanksgiving dinner was very disorganized although we made reservations several days before. The Anzu staff had difficultly accommodating the number of diners. It was extremely noisy. Club Lounge should vary the appetizers instead of the same each night.
Great location, beautiful hotel, very comfortable and large rooms.
I like the fact the beds are away from the busy hall. the decor of the hotel; a little boring
Convenient location, easy access to transport and shopping areas I was unable to check in until 15.00 hrs. even though I informed the hotel that I arrived after a 10-hour trip to Japan
Staff was immediately attentive to any need; bathroom was large, with a great shower and free-standing sink; room was quiet; view of S.F. was lovely. Hotel initially lost Booking.com reservation but corrected this when I called to reserve confirmation three weeks ahead and faxed copy of booking.com confirmation. Initial problems with room (phone that didn't work, no blow dryer) very quickly corrected.
Beautiful room Concierge Club not well serviced during the evening drinks
Everyone was really helpful
My room was quite dirty, the toilet seat had something nasty in it, the table had years of dust,crumbs and scum under it. Our sheets had holes in them. Overall was very nice, most people were obviously there on business so I felt out of place not In a suit .
The room was clean and modern and quiet The A.C. Barely worked the room was at 75 when we walked in and barely goth to 69 by 3am. The bathroom doors didn't close all the way and the lock didn't work, no vent fan.
The bed was comfortable, the cleaning girl was very nice and helpful. The hotel was much overpriced to begin with and as we checked in, we were encouraged to upgrade for an extra $70 per night for something that didn't seem like an upgrade. The room itself was not luxurious by any means. We felt that it could get away with anything because it was right downtown. The long lines for both check in and the "continental breakfast" were not convenient.
The hotel was clean and upgraded. The A/C in my room was broken and it took about 3 hours for someone to come in and fix it. The room was stuffy and hot. We left to go get a bite to eat and returned to find out that they had not fixed it nor were we getting another room. Just off of the staff interaction I most likely would not return.
I loved the coffee shop/store on the lobby level. Being able to purchase cold drinks and snacks, and even fresh sandwiches or pizza was a great surprise. The coffee was excellent in the morning. I landed, completely sleep deprived, at what my body thought was 1am. Maybe that's why I had such an adverse reaction to a very lively bar whose sounds echoed through the entire lobby. In fact, it seemed to take up the entire lobby as it spilled into seating that i had to walk through to get to registration. I could hardly hear the staff member trying to check me in.
The rooms are very small, the water pressure in the shower was extremely low it took me 30 minutes to take a normal shower when usually it takes me 10 minutes. It is very unusual to when the room dose not have a lock on the door I find that out after walking in to the restroom and embarrassing myself in front of my coworker room has two beds that means there is more than one person sleeping in your room that one person doesn't have to be a family member this case you was my coworker
Location Air temperature is controlled by the front desk. You will need to call them to adjust (really, are we in the 1970s???)-unbelievable). The air condition smelled like mildew and gave me a headache the following day. My roommate kept coughing the whole night which we suspect was due to the mildew coming out of the A/C vent. Bathroom floor was not cleaned. Found gross hair (and other too gross to mention) on the floor. Corners underneath the sink have dust balls. the bathroom toilet plastic seat was burned that it looked like you poured acid on it. I cannot believe they have not replaced it. The electric plug in the bathroom is not secured and about to fall off, the hair dryer would not turn on because of the faulty plug. (Again, really????) So disappointing as when I think of Hilton, I think safe, clean and decent...not the SF union square. Front desk was very unfriendly. No welcome or "enjoy your stay" greeting. He couldn't find our reservation. When I showed him the confirmation number, he gave me the look and said "oh that's hotel.com's"...whatever that meant. As if he was treating us 3rd class as we had not booked it directly with them. After a few minutes, he finally found our reservation. Again, very unpleasant.
Location Old room, not very clean, no fridge or frigobar in the room, old carpet, smell old
The funnels of it all great people great staff and an all around great time with everything that was offered to me that's all
I booked a double room but was given a single.
Clean, decent amenities. Staff was friendly Arrived early before check in. Said I would get a text when room was ready. 3 hrs later I walk up to desk and my room had been ready for over 2 hrs. When I asked about my text they just said "sorry about that". I kinda thought it was a weak response. Then I get a text asking for feedback so far and I relay the check in issue and the horrible pillows we had and again I just get "sorry" with out any offer to make it better.
Five minutes upon entering our room , there was another couple who entered. Apparently , the front desk assigned the same room and key card to different guests. After 15 minutes a guard came , checked the situation and assured me that everything was taken cared off. We went out to have dinner but when we came back we couldn't enter our room . I checked with the front desk and said the key card was de activated. We were never informed of such
Great location great front desk people beautiful view Drink left in room from previous occupant
Everything else was great Price for parking
Friendly accommodating staff. Great location, beautiful facility. The observatory level was cool, but packed, so much so we didn't stay to enjoy the view. I would recommend to a friend. Disappointed that I reserved a room with a larger bed and due to room availability we were moved to a double, which my wife and I were unable to share. We're by no means large people. It would have been nice to be able to park or rental without being charged extra, but that seems to be a norm in the city.
The room was clean, the bed was amazing, location was walking distance to all things downtown, I felt safe with my young son, easy express checkout. No room service, for the money we spent I would've liked to see a free breakfast, the cost of parking is insane (it is SF though), no pool.
The value for the money is really good! It was clean, spacious, well decorated. We ensured to get two beds in the bedroom and we got them!
Location is excellent. Big hotel where you get lost. Looks and feel old, needs a major renovation.
We enjoyed the Marriott Marquis hotel very much , but the valet only parking is a bit spends. Thank goodness there is another parking garage one block over. Y
They were accommodating and nice
Really nice lobby, rooms where clean The wifi wasn't free, they charged you to use a computer for $.40 per minute. I really needed a workstation. No hot tube or pool for $400 per night. Will not go back.
Hotel was clean We booked a room for two night with a king size bed upon arrival we were not told they didn't have a room for us instead sent us to a room with double beds wouldn't accommodate us claiming they had "no more rooms available "... next day had issues relocating our luggage to next room. Parking was absurd $70 dollars a night ?? Overrated
They tried to steal my luggage when I first came in, took them over 4 hours to bring my stuff up. I said enough of this bs and went to go down myself and get all my stuff to find it hiding in a room away from everyone else while the guy at the front was telling me "it'll be there shortly were a little backed up". Then to top it all off I find $35 of charges from the hotel of stuff I never used. I've never been so disrespected by a hotel in my life. Shady workers I highly recommend you don't stay here.
Location No swimming pool
Wonderful location. Beautiful building Very busy hotel . Check in lines are long.
The hotel has lost its luster...beds were uncomfortable....toilet leaked....no water in rooms....grubby panhandler approached us while we sat at lobby coffee bar....not surprising since every time we went out the front door the doormen were either talking or texting n cell phones off to the side...I gave stayed there on and off for over 20 years...it's a shame but I will likely stay elsewhere going forward
The location, helpful and friendly staff, nice size rooms N/a
Inmaculate beautiful building with lots of history, great location, really enjoy the stay
My room's window faced a brick wall and got absolutely no sunlight. I felt like we were in a dungeon. I couldn't tell what time of day it was, kind of like that feeling you get when you are in a Vegas Casino. We didn't get in until after midnight when we arrived, so I was more interested in getting some sleep than complaining. But I was really disappointed.
Check In was great. Very nice staff. Rewarded us for returning for a third time in two years by giving us (2) complimentary drink coupons. Valet was $58/night + Tax. Took over 30 mins to get car out of lot when checking out. Mini bar in room was half empty and had empty bottles, a milkshake cup and food wrappers inside.
Proximity to Union Square Rooms / noise. You can hear your neighbors' every word, toilets, etc. The doors slam shut SO very hard, that they will jar you from the heaviest sleep. Lots of late night parties on the 11th floor.
Great location Customer service was great Amenities could be better Rooms and bathrooms are a bit small
Great location right downtown sf. Close to restaurants and bars, great front desk staff and cleaning staff Parking fees are outrageous, rude service desk, very small rooms, can hear every word from the other guests rooms
The location is a big draw and it is a known entity in San Francisco. It met expectations. We stayed in the Tower. The room was big and the furnishings adequate, but not what I expected from a hotel of this caliber. Somewhat dated. Also, hallways are dark and below what one would expect from a hotel like this. I could've paid $100 more and stayed at the Fairmont, and it would've been worth it!
Loved the location and hotel's history. When I checked in, room they assigned me to wasn't serviced. Called the front desk multiple times and had to wait 30 plus minutes before waiving down a manger to help me. Then proceeded to wait another 29 min to find a room that was cleaned.
Very luxurious and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially the management. When things went wrong, they were accommodating to benefit me for the inconveniences. Upon checking in, they didn't have our room available until the next day. Not sure how that even happens, but after talking to the manager, he miraculously was able to get our room. I had an allergic reaction to the laundry detergent they use on the bed sheets and my eyes swelled up. I was told that if you have allergies, you need to call in advance to make sure they wash the bedding with hyper-allergenic detergent (they normally use Dawn). For the inconveniences, they did comp me my room service.
Comfortable beds. Great location. Nice staff. Beautiful decor. Poor soundproofing- we could hear everything next door. $65 parking and $14 wifi. "Courtyard view" misrepresents the huge noisy cooling type towers. Breakfast was 1 1/2 hour late. Dinner in the restaurant was loud and only mediocre.
Wonderful time here no bad experiences Totally preference but the beds are too soft and frankly the food is over priced for the quality. It's clear the food has not been under a real chefs direction for a while but these are relatively minor complaints
I originally was trying to book this hotel via the QANTAS website however they had problems, so I rang the hotel direct and they were most helpful. Not only did they book me in, but they beat the original price and converted it for me to $AUD for my small brain. I drove to SFO from LAX - on arrival bell hop service was excellent, didn't miss any bags or jackets that were in my car. Stayed in the main building - Fairmont Queen room Clean and tidy Free WiFi BathTub Excellent staff Late checkout Food selection and room service Tonga room is a must see Location very central to anywhere you'd like to be in SFO The main building although grand, is a little dated. The refurbished rooms are good, but the particular room I was in the door didn't fully open because the wall gets in the way, so for room service the trolley couldn't be wheeled in, food had to be carried in from the door, and there wasn't really any table to put the food on, only the writing desk or the fold out mini bar. I had to call for slippers
The fairmont has maintained the old style luxury without cutting corners. Fantastic staff, location and NO TOUR BUSSES!!
View, room, service
Room was large & I only had a queen. Bed, pillows & sheets all very good. Hotel is dated but some would call that charming. My robe had stains on it.
The staff was both professional and warm. The room was immaculate, the view breathtaking, and the beds are phenomenally comfortable. A truly memorable stay. If you are looking for something sleek and modern this is not your hotel. Food and drinks in the hotel itself are not good value, especially given the wealth of foodie options in SF.
Perfection... However, I was very surprised that the ice maker on our floor did not work, and there was a chocolate wrapper on a table by the elevator for our three day stay??? With all that opulence, did not get that???
Reputation was indeed lived up to ...better than I expected Cost of overnight parking
The view is amazing in the linens were very comfortable Valet parking is a bit steep in price
Location Parking at $65 a nite is outrageous There were no blankets in the room so I asked for some they came an hour later. I had to call 3 times to get service. Wifi was $14 a day not free. Coffee in the room was poor. U would think they could provide quality coffee. Paper was delivered to some rooms but not ours
Good location, Comfortable bed, Nice bathrooms. Easy to walk to local "tourist spots" I booked a 2 double bed room for my friend and i. And paid in full up front. non refundable. What i got was 1 king size bed. (Resulting in an awkward situation for my friend and i) I guess they arent sure how to hold a reservation? (After booking i was sent an email stating this could happen) but i still dont understand how i can request what i need, and pay in full. And be given something completly different... There is no parking at all. You can either park on the street and baby a meter, or you can pay valet 60$ a night plus 40% tax. (I was not made aware of this until the i was sitting in the valet) Just be prepared to pay alot more than what you agreed to before you show up. (Maybe this isnt a big deal for most, but i didnt feel like it was a good way to conduct business, and treat your guests)
The staff was so nice and the location was perfect. Next to Bart station, cable cars, light rail, and restaurants. Breakfast was expensive but good.
Very nice rooms The club in the hotel across the street is open until 3:00 The noise from the club and street noise makes it impossible to sleep. We got to the hotel at 11:30. Room was not ready but the man at the desk said he would text is when it would be ready. Never happened. We got on our room at 3:30. Charge for wifi
The staff, especially the restaurant staff more friendly and attentive. We ate most of our meals at the hotel. The menu is limited. The food was okay the service needed improvement.
You buffet is good for the American but your Chinese options are not too good
The front desk was very friendly and showed us places to eat in the area. They gave us a comp breakfast and free mimosa's because it was our anniversary. Very happy with the whole experience!
Great location! Clean and modern room. Mattress was comfortable and the view was great! The elevators were very efficient too. The "hot" breakfast bar that was included was just pastries, fruit, heat n' serve cups of oatmeal, yogart, coffee and juice. When they said "hot" I think of eggs, breakfast meats and toast or pancakes. They should not reference their breakfast bar as a "hot" breakfast bar. The staff gave us the wrong directions a few times, just save your breath and time and just google it!
Cable car right in union square and the tour bus to see all of SanFrancisco nearby.
Friendly staff, quick check in, great valet ($55/night + tips) , comfy beds and pillows, 50" LG tv. Microwaves and refrigerators are an additional cost . But is recommended if you are traveling and are bringing left overs back for a couple days . The views aren't too great and it's a little more noisy outside unless you pay more for a higher floor .
Feels like an adventure since it appears to be on a us ship!
Staff was great and the location was perfect. You can walk to many hot spots within 2-10 min Parking in the city is always a pain. But expected. Valet parking was $60.
Location Booked and paid extra for king bed, when we checked in there were none available, so still had to pay extra for 2 queens.
The room cleanliness and decor. Customer service-I had requested a 1 bed and they initially gave me a double. So we had to go change rooms. Then at 6am there's was a fire drill so everyone had to evacuate but the issue is that the staff never offered an apology.
I booked Pier 2620 less than a month before my intended stay. It was cheap, just over $200 a night, but the location was pretty unbeatable and we didn't plan to spend much time in our room, so I figured it was good enough. Upon entering the lobby, we were already impressed. It was very clean, bright and fresh. We really loved our room. The decor is unique and industrial, but super cozy. We had a great time. The staff was so friendly and polite. I can't wait for my next visit to SF, I'll be looking to book here again.
Great location, clean, nice, friendly staff. Noise easily heard from other room, hallway and street. Have to be quiet at night.
Excelent bed, shower, big room, quiet. Staff from front desk confusing and not gentle. Didn'tgive important information. Lounge vip not worthy.
I liked that we were in walking distance of the wharf and North Shore. A few blocks from the congestion of fisherman's wharf gave us some peace and quiet. We were able to sleep with the window's open without the noise from the streets or groups of people invading our space.
The location and staff were wonderful. The gym was very nice. The hotel was clean. . For my purposes, it was perfect. The bathroom could use updating, but it was okay. I would NOT classify this as a romantic hotel. The Edison lamps were unique but not very effective as lighting.
The service, location and amenities were incredible. Very comfy beds! Everything was perfect, except the shower would clogg a bit. Would definetly recommend
Clean, renovated, stylish, friendly, with a perfect location. Not a the over priced dirty old hotel usually available for the price in the warf. I did not pick the hotel or we wouldn't have stayed in this area. I was WRONG. They've saved an old hotel from being an awful tourist trap. I was anticipating mushrooms growing on the carpets and paint from the 70's. But it was as clean as a Hampton in or Holiday in express I would usually use during the week for work. Location is at the end of the war so getting in and out of there was easy. It's also at the end of Columbus state getting into little Italy and over to China town were also simple. Again, I did not expect this clean of a room for that close to $200 in this area. Would stay here again if asked to. Charged for waters. Hotel elevator room card reader. In room AC could have worked better, but it was well enough that we didn't bother to complain. Not enough outlets. Though there are charging stations in the room, only 1 next to the bed and the other shut off when the TV was off. Stairwell doors all need new door closers. Bed looked lumpy but slept fine.
I loves the fresh but edgy rooms. Do the valet parking.
Poor accommodations. Rude staff.
The room they put us in was very small. There was no refrigerator, no microwave, nothing that would make the stay comfortable or say luxury. Plus the parking cost and facilities fees are ridiculously high.
Great location. Nice staff. Bathroom too small. Drain didn't work well in tub. Sink drain wouldn't close. Toilet too close to door.
Great location Restaurant can be improved, i. e. choice & prices slightly too high
We had a view even from the 9th floor. Very clean and cozy. Staff was really kind. No mini fridge :(
You had to pay for WiFi and the restaurant had a very limited menu.
Comfortable and clean. Good location No room service
View was great, staff was very friendly, and room was very clean. $58 for over night parking is outrageous, because of that I will not stay here again. Also, $20 for wifi? For the price you're paying that should definitely be included. We had to ask twice for a crib to be sent up to the room, that was a little disappointing when I had two small children to get to bed upon arrival. Also would have been nice to have a mini fridge included in the room. When traveling with kids it's very convenient to have a fridge to store their milk, snacks, etc
I loved the view and staff was extremely friendly and the location great. Bed was very comfortable and and room was nice and clean. Mabye a lil upgrade on the appliances other than that it was great. I think for the resort fee it should have came with a little more amenities.
Location. Proximity to public transportation. Doors, fixtures show age, wear and tear. Facilities fee (which I assume were adjusted for SPG Platinum members)
View was amazing, bed was comfortable, showers were updated,halls were quiet (well insulated walls). Easy access to hotel and downtown destination. Great overall. It did not provide a mini fridge. We had to ask for one.
Location was nice for exploring the city. Room was clean/comfortable. NO INTERNET at this hotel... In the modern age, it's ridiculous that wifi/high speed internet is not included in the cost of the hotel when you purchase ahead of time. On top of that, I asked about wifi when I was checking in, and the lady told me we could get internet with an OPTIONAL ~$35 PER night fee, that included internet and other services like bike rentals. We didn't want to spend this, so it made sense that I couldn't connect to any wifi from my hotel room. When I checked out, they said they had charged us for the fee, and that it was required, despite the fact that we'd never connected to the internet. Outrageous that this wasn't just in the price of the hotel from the getgo... Don't bother with this place until they get with the modern age.
Friendly atmosphere and close to waterfront attractions . Evening wine tasting was lovely - can recommend this hotel
Easy to get to places of interest and front desk staff willing and able to help. Small room
location-concierge-home-like lobby-inviting-great restaurant booked king room on line-got there and had a queen-very disappointed-have a queen at home!!
the bed is amazing and the front desk is helpful and competent the parking was valet only and the price was $42 a day(its not going to be cheaper anywhere else) but the bellmen were not very friendly and were not happy to repeatedly get the car for me.
the location is excellent. our room was very noisy from staff running up & down the metal stairs, The fire alarm went off twice during our stay waking us up, no apology from staff or managment.
Nicely furnished and the lobby area was a pleasant place to sit and chat over coffee or wine. Excellent location and concierge Alan was very helpful Room was a bit dark but not a major issue
Staff was friendly and helpful....nice location close to North Beach and Fishermans Warf. They did not have an express check-out system. You had to go to the front desk and do it the old fashion way.....not a big deal but you need to plan for it accordingly.
location, close to transport,(excursions); winetasting every day 5-6 in the afternoon where one can meet fellow travellers. all good
Location was good, hotel was available when I needed to be in SF, within walking distance to Wharf, decent on-site restaurant. Distance from elevators to room.
very clean nice personnel very confortable very far from san francisco downtown not too much variety in the breakfast menu
The breakfast was fantastic including western omlet and waffles! The breakfast/long area well decorated and clean. The rooms were large and quite beautiful. Beds were comfortable. We recommend it!!! Felt like a safe area. We have no complaints!
Customer service was excellent. Staff was friendly. Needs more underground garage parking.
Lovely staff, great breakfast, easy to get to town if you have a car, you can park at Daly City for $2 a day and the BART takes you right to the City Centre.
Great breakfast- free. Free Tea & coffee available 24 hrs. Great value. only 20 min drive into San Francisco. free parking
Everything was fine..except the mattress was not comfortable and the water pressure in the shower was too weak. Everything was fine..except the mattress was not comfortable and the water pressure in the shower was too weak.
Inside very decent, all clean. Rather small fitness room and pool but at least everything there was clean and worked. Very full breakfast, well beyond a couple donuts and old coffee. Great place to stop to/from airport or if work/family in the area. Staff made an effort. Area was not really great, at least after dark. TV Remote didn't have a sleep function.
Location location location The hallways have an unpleasant odor; however, the room did not - thank goodness.
Nice room. Nice spot. Valet was very expensive, They did not warn about the price up front. They were insistent we took a mini bar key even tho we didn't want one. no nightlife around the location.
Big positives: cleanliness and size of room, very cheery staff, newer hotel. Somewhat kitschy decor that was also endearing . Cool rough hewn wood beams in room. As a former San Franciscan touristy Fisherman's Wharf wouldn't be my first choice but appreciated quietness of area. Far cleaner, quiet than Union Square or SOMA. Better value than Union Square, much nicer than motels on Lombard. Heard some guests making noise in hall in middle of night.
The room was very comfortable, in particular the bed and pillows were comfy.
Sight seeing and shoping No
Location..decor...staff...service...all were great!!!
evberyone was great and very helpful the location was perfect our view was a wall
The staff was friendly. Concierge restaurant recommendations on the money. The location was excellent. Rained the entire weekend-but no matter the hotels had huge umbrellas for their quests. Lighting could have been better when you entered the room (outside bathroom.) Prefer bathroom sink outside of bath/shower area. Allows two people to get ready at same time.
The staff was very friendly. From the maids to the doorman to the concierge everyone was concerned with trying to help us have the best time possible while we stayed there. Loved using the free loaner bikes to get around the wharf.
Location and comfort
Excellent as usual. Staff very helpful with an early check-in.
The room has a very hip vibe that is a hit with my kids ages 12-17. They love it! The hotel is just a block away from the cable car when we came back from a night at the downtown area. No hassle when we went around SF downtown and back. It is also within the activities from the pier. It is far enough from the main noise but near enough for a few minutes walk. Very accessible to all the great restaurants and activities around the area. None
Breakfast The receptionist lied to me about the parking fee Later the hotel charge me 75 USD for overnight parking
The hotel was beautiful and it was clean
The Staff! The Food Selection and quality was Very Bad, for a hotel that size and location. The $60.00 Plus a Night to valet a Car Is Crazy,
The hotel atrium remains spectacular. Great location in financial district, overlooking the bay, a walking distance from Fisherman's Wharf, but be aware that many restaurants and coffee shops in the immediate vicinity of the hotel are closed on Sunday. Bathrooms are small and outdated. Overnight parking is $34.00.
Downtown you're close to everything and the hotel view was amazing. You're still downtown, so you walk out and it's a lot of homeless and the streets smell of urine, bad. The hotel staff is in no hurry for anything. Toom service took 1.5-2 hours and we even had a package delivered and they never bothered to bring it up. After three hours we told them forget it we'll get it ourselves. Cleaning staff is super nice. They were doing construction there so don't bother trying to nap during the day, because they were jack hammering the lobby. For the money I think there's better.
Location is great, large facility for meetings Lack of aesthetics, just tired and drab. Parking is just ok
The staff was awesome and we used the regency club for the first time. Glad we upgraded for it because we loved it! Overall a great stay! For the price that you pay, the gym should should have a more equipment.
Very comfortable bed, great location, friendly staff.
Excellent location with great facilities in this hotel. It's really easy to travel to other famous sightseeings and restaurants in this area are really good. A little bit noise whether stay in high floor or in low floor, and the bathroom is too small for a 4 star hotel.
Beautifully located in downtown on Embarcadero. Access to many things. Pricey but nothing is free right?
The location couldn't be more convenient, just steps away from the Embarcadero BART station, and very close to everything off of Market and the Embarcadero. The hotel itself is large and strangely appointed in some ways in the lobby (huge sculptures, dated music, pods of work or social spaces set out in the midst of an overwhelming visual scale reminiscent of Soviet architecture). That said, the staff was so welcoming and pleasant, and the rooms are clean, new, and quite comfortable. I did not try room service, but everything I experienced was worth the very affordable rate. I'll be back.
The location and our room size No complaints
Very comfortable bed. Free wifi. Good gym. Very friendly staff and they sell oddities water for $1 a bottle. A little bit dated interior
I liked the lady at check in helping resolve an issue with billing. Somehow, the hotel reservations people decided I should pay for an extra night when I had cancelled that night the previous week. The lady at check in was very helpful and was able to resolve the issue, but I was disappointed I had the issue in the first place. It was not clear to me why this happened. The room was nice - but quite expensive in my opinion.
Friendly staff, great location (walking distance to most attractions), comfy beds and updated overall. Needed spa after some gruelling walks (need to be fit to get around) or simply jump on cable cars outside hotel ;). Although We found city pricy, hotel food offerings were excessive to say the least (no room service either?)Management has to know within walking distance are some great options for meals that are easier on your wallet.
GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE, EVERYONE IN THE LOBBY WAS VERY HELPFUL AND KIND. HOTEL WAS CLEAN, AND PROVIDES A FRESH SMELL AS YOU WALK IN. I LOVED THE WATER BOTTLES TO GET PURIFIED WATER AS YOU WALK IN OR LEAVE.
Location Mandatory "urban bundle fee" of $20+ per night, even if you don't use or want the services. Housekeeping was bad -- there was a half full highball glass in the hallway outside our room for our entire stay. When we arrived on a December evening the room temperature was set to 54 degrees with cold air blasting in. Overall not a friendly or welcoming environment, unfortunately.
Steve, one of the staff members, was very friendly and helpful. Aside from that, nothing. Nearly everything. The rest of the staff seemed unimpressed with the hotel themselves and in fact mocked the hotel for intentionally using "false advertising" to lure customers into staying there. Upon arriving we received a "complimentary upgrade," which off the batt seemed wonderful, but once we entered the room we were appalled; we couldn't even imagine what our original room would have looked like. When I called down to complain about the striking difference from the pictures on the website the woman at the front desk replied that what I saw online was called "photoshop." The room was spacious, but empty; there was no headboard, safe or amenities. The hotel offered nothing, but rooms and was not the kind of place you looked forward to returning to at the end of a long day. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone and I would never return myself. For a couple hundred dollars more I could have stayed at the nicest hotel in San Francisco. This hardly ranks with the top hotels in the city, despite its high prices and false four star advertising online.
While the yellow carpet in the halls is a bit dated and worn, the rest of the Stanford court is updated, quirky, and fun. The staff is great, and the location is only half a block from the top of nob hill. Great weekend escape.
Nice location Slow service from check in to check out Uncomfortable beds (pillows were worn flat, requested new ones and got two more flat/worn out pillows) Towel was dirty (not stained--it had actual chips of dirt on it) slow wifi Very low quality food
The location is wonderful, the bed was good No one answered the valet parking phone three days in a row. No room service. A beer glass sat in the hallway for two days without being picked up. Kitschy "hipster" feel.
Mood Took too long to check-in
Window view was loud but nice, room was clean and service was very good. Nice location. Jeffery was a great bartender showing professionalism with an intoxicated female needing assistance at the bar Urban tax fee is a shady charge that was not explained at check in, The fee is for bike rental and internet, yet the Wi fi was listed as free and you would be insane to ride a bike down the hills. I had to argue to get it removed.
Location was great and staff. Bathrooms are way to small, shower did not drain properly.
Decor, comfort and staff interactions. I did not sleep all night due to an event at the hotel where people were slamming doors and talking in the halls all night.
The kids especially loved the indoor pool and the staff in the pool area were extremely gracious and helpful.
The hotel is stunning and the staff is so nice. I loved the history and the elegance of the place. I liked everything.
Fantastic SF landmark...we never left the Hotel.
I liked the overall appearance - the old world charm with today's amenities - great pool! the servic nothing
Nice to stay in a piece of history. Very convenient location for MUNI/BART. Rooms appointments very nice, beds great. Main lobby atrium is stunning. Well-trained, personable staff. Coffee/wifi in room would be nice, but that's unfortunately the nature of the beast (Hol Inn Express does that, not most upscale). I went with two hyperactive twin boys, and though not an ideal hotel for kids in most ways, the staff was very patient and accommodating with them. I'd say I wish it were a better value, but really next to what else what available in the area it was a better bang for the buck than most.
Location Bathrobes, slippers, and WATER included wow! Portable led lighted mirror. So convenient. Staff was really attentive to our needs and accommodating Very clean Booked a double bed superior room through AMOMA.com and they offered a king superior at the front desk. Definitely appreciated that. Spacious 2 ice vending machines on every floor Nothing.
very good location and excellent pld decor Allows animals so we have dogs barking a couple of nights. Regular noice from the plumbing also disturbed us
location near attraction false fire alarm at 12:30am
The room was beautiful and the staff was exceptionally friendly. The location was convenient. We liked everything.
Really cool amenities,close to everything you need.Room service was nice and really cool views. I didn't like that after driving two hours up to SF,having reserved my room almost a week in advance they informed me my room was not ready,then couldn't give me an answer as to why or how long it would take to clean.Luckily friends who were getting married in the city had their room so we stayed there and waited almost an hour and a half until they called me to tell me it was finally ready then didn't offer much to try and make the situation better
I loved the large room! The space was great. Loved the airy feel.
The location was very convienent. I chose to park down the street and save $30 for over night parking. Nice pillows and comfy bed. This hotel is really small the room was giving me an allegric reactions I could not breath, until we forced the window open. The shower curtain and shower smelled really bad. That was gross. I will not be staying here again.
Room was nothing special the lobby and bar were cool The room was was average and bathroom was very old decore
The room and hallways where dark, the bathrooms are in bad shape (old and rusty), the tv was small and didn't have on demand. It used to be THE PLACE TO STAY in SF... Not anymore...needs a remodel urgently.
The staff and location were both excellent, the bar is also fun (and the reason I knew about the hotel to begin with). There sure are a lot of interesting chairs around! Room service was prompt and the food was tasty. The bed is comfortable and the rooms have pretty good noise control. The rooms are in dire need of updating. We stayed in a studio so the size was good, but things just seemed old. The walls needed touch up paint, the bathtub was peeling (about a 10'' section was missing plaster), the grout was stained, the hair dryer must be from 1985, the thermostat is old making it hard to control room temperature, the faucet was probably really awesome 20 years ago, but now it is difficult to get it in the "off" position, not good in a state experiencing a drought.
Superb location right in the heart of San Francisco's Union Square area, excellent restaurants and shopping nearby. Beautifully decorated room that was quiet and serene. Standard room king was quite small. No room for more than a couple.
Classy Good room service food Hidden cost for valet parking - $52 a night Hidden cost for a 50 cent aux cord - $100 deposit Hidden cost for more than 5 glasses ordered for guests House keeping failed to clean my room one day when I called them before leaving for the day specifically asking them to tidy up No Hot tub or pool
Great vibe in the hotel bar. Room service was slow, found a hair in my food, ordered a Coke three times and never got it, was provided with only a comforter and fitted sheet on my bed, food wasn't very good.
The bed was very comfortable. The room was dark with the curtains pulled closed. I stayed at the Clift this past weekend with my wife for a "staycation" away from the Oakland grind we call our normal lives. A few concerns with the Clift Hotel. When we arrived we were unsure about how the valet worked since there are no signs or "red jackets" (they wear black). We had to circle the block and call to find out what the deal was. It's also expensive, $52+ tax per night. Once we were in the Hotel we were told that our room wasn't ready, which was completely fine since we arrived 3 hours prior to check in time. We happily checked our bag and went for a stroll around union square. The problem is that the woman at the counter said we should expect a phone call with in the hour when our room was ready. We waited the hour and then another hour. No call. We then returned to the Hotel at 3pm and were told by the same women that it "should be ready within the hour."This would take us up to check in time...Finally at 4pm we complained and a manager upgraded us to a Jr. Suite and promptly gave us the keys. Sales Training: under promise and over deliver, not the other way around. Finally we arrive in our room and its pretty nice. It was on the 15th floor and the view was pretty urban SF high life. We were happy. The tub and painted surfaces were chipping and sup par. apparently this room costs $450+ per night, If I paid that I expect a little more attention to detail and quality. We dined at the Velvet Room, the Hotel's restaurant. We were offered a cold and breezy table next to the hallway leading to the bar but were happily seated in a lovely booth when we requested that. Dinner was delicious. The Redwood Room, their high shelf bar, is always crowded and all seating is reserved for $350+ bottle service. The common areas are nice, warm, and cozy. The room is three star. The overall experience is ok, we'll try another place next month and report back.
Great food, staff and service. Valet took a little long.
Old & tired Tired
Expensive mini bar, breakfast etc
Room layout, beds, a lot of outlets, very clean HUGE construction project in the middle atrium, hence noise and no restaurant. Bathroom amenities very, very limited - need to ask for basic things like Q-tips and other (yes, they are available - a nice list in the room) but having only soap and shampoo in the room is not sufficient
The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The shower was not clean and was hard to turn on. Water pressure was very low. Not desirable.
Exceptional customer service. Unclean.
Location. Under much needed renovation. Would have been nice to know at time of booking. Air filter so plugged air wouldn't flow. Toilet wouldn't stop running. Blood on comforter. No coffee maker in room. Not at all what you'd expect from a Hyatt. Staff was great when we told them about issues.
Beautiful hotel with strong drinks! No nightlife near by.
Under construction, noisey
we didnt like much. they didnt include on the web that the hotel is going through massive renovations. pool was closed which we wanted to use so badly during our short vacation. The gym was also out of service. it was very disappointing of an experience.
The hotel was very clean and the staff was very pleasant and polite. We were staying for one night before having to be at the UCSF children's hospital the next day and we all slept like babies. The beds were extremely comfortable and the linen was very soft overall we had a great stay.
The bath robes and the gym it's 24hrs How the tv worked and the remote sorta sucked. They need to upgrade
Location The whole place smelled dusty due to the construction-- I booked a 300 dollar room and they said that there was no running water--- moved me into another room with no view but not any cheaper
Food at 360 was great. Beds were comfy. No microwaves in room. No liquid coffee creamer, just powder.
Location Valet and bell hops were friendly and helpful. First check attempt was not successful due to a power outage that only affected the computers. Employee was also rude and really should find a job that does not involve working with people. Attempted to order food to go in the restaurant, after waiting for 25mns while the waiter was watching a football game we gave up and left. Rooms were dated and dingy. Would not recommend as a platinum passport member.
The staff was exceptional. ALL of them. Not much. The spa was priced really high so we ended up making other accommodations.
Customer service was outstanding.
They need to add a salon that has someone there to do hair blow outs for customers staying at the Ritz.
Everyone was amazing! Jonathan the bartender, patrick the bellman, everyone! They made my boyfriends birthday very special. This is the best hotel in SF. Thank you to the entire staff. Nothing because everything was awesome!
The location is the only good thing about this hotel Customer service was horrible after a long flight
We liked the overall vibe and style. We didn't like the inconsistent customer service and the room vibrated from the restaurant's exhaust fan. (We moved to another room.)
Convenient to airport n hwy Tight room
Nicest hotel staff I've encountered in a very long time. They were incredibly accommodating to myself, my husband, and my 2 year old daughter. We had an overnight stay for a connecting flight and the hotel is extremely close to the airport with a very quick and frequent airport shuttle bus. We happened to be stuck there with a delayed flight on my daughters 2 year birthday and when the staff found out they gave us an extended check out and treated the birthday girl to pasta and a birthday brownie. It was a really pleasant surprise for a tired and traveling family. Thank you Westin!!!
Very close to the Airport and convenient shuttle for departures/arrivals Nice pool, size was great for doing laps Didn't try the restaurant but the menu looked great We had to arrange returning a rental car and the front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. A fridge/microwave in the room would have been nice for the price but otherwise it was great.
The hotel was clean & pretty well maintained. The staff were not helpful or friendly. The pool was freezing. The wifi was $10 and parking was very expensive. I was hoping for a nice quick pleasant overnight stay. It was quick but not so pleasant.
Hotel provided shuttles every 15 minutes to the airport. They dropped you off at your gate. Very nice.
Parking is $25 Come on. Also, Westin withheld $100. from my card for "incidentals" wi/o notification. The cheesy glasses in the room were carefully encased in cheap plastic wrap with the prepared label "SPG Members" affixed to the bottom of each glass, alerting the non-SPG Members that they would be charged for unwrapping the household plastic wrap from the glass if they dared to venture to drink from actual glass rather than from the plastic UNlabeled "glass" next to the special SPG one. The tub drained poorly. This hotel is full of itself and not much else in terms of service and ambiance.
The staff was very helpful and the conference rooms and facilities were very nice and what you would expect from the Westin. Room was clean. Good location First thing I was thoroughly disappointed in was the pillows. After traveling I was tired so I immediately fluffed up the pillows to lay down for a short nap. But the pillow cases sounded and felt like paper!!! And 3'outnofnthen4 pillows were so lumpy and flat, not one firm pillow and that combined with uncomfortable pillow cases I woke up with a neck ache. Bed was uncomfortable . And the sound level in our room was so LOUD that we were woken several times by people walking by talking and each room to either left or right we heardbeverybtime the toilet flushed and every conversation or slammed door. Very disappointed in my stay this time. Better soundproofing the rooms..it felt like paper thin walls!
nice clean hotel, friendly staff overpriced daily parking, overpriced internet
Through Expedia I got a great deal to stay at the Westin for 3 nights and it was great! I stayed over the Thanksgiving weekend and even though it was a holiday the staff was extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. Nice shower, awesome beds and it's close to the bay so you can just walk outside for a beautiful veiw and walk. Also has a free shuttle and is a short walk to the BART station!
We liked having a free shuttle to the airport as well as the indoor pool. It was great for our one year old to swim and get some energy out before a cross country flight. Staff were very accommodating and provided us with a crib for the room. The hotel restaurant was very expensive, but this is not surprising for San Francisco.
The staff was wonderful. My granddaughter was able to do her studies while I was in class. She was able to do this while looking out a window at the beautiful scenery thanks to the nice people we met while we ate breakfast. I thought the staff was great along with the great training I had for my business. I would like to stay there again. It was hard to drive to because the roads were being worked on. It took us a little longer to arrive than I had planned.
The staff was great specially the greeters at the door and baggage handlers Location location location
The views were gorgeous! I wish it had a pool, or at least a hot tub, or steam room. I could hear through the walls...other guests etc. It was noisy.
All the hotel staff was very friendly, courteous and accomodating. The Wifi at the hotel was very spotty. It was in and out and made it difficult to use my laptop in the room.
Bedding, bed, pillows & nice bathroom. Was after hours & our request for room service was still met. Nothing.
The room was fantastic and the staff was great.
Lovely room with plenty of plugs for laptops, etc. Refrigerator and coffee maker. Room also had separate "dressing table" area AND a full bathroom; perfect for a couple! Parking rates absurd. Found a much cheaper garage on our own.
The staff were very professional .
Convenient location. Beautiful view of San Francisco
Most of it is the location and the good value The service was not great very unpersonal
