The location was great. Yeah - theres homeless people outside BUT theres homeless people all over SF. My second room was good.
I was originally put into a room on the second floor (avoid at all costs) and the windows were open when I got there (sign 1) - got them closed. Then my hot water didnt work and maintenance had to work on it for 30 min (sign 2). Finally when I slept it got so incredibly hot in my room that I was sweating. Not even the fan was keeping it cool. I should have changed rooms that night but it was 10 pm and I just worked a 12 hour day. The next morning I explained to the front desk all of the above and they immediately put me in a nicer room.
The AC seems not working, the vents blow hot air only. Opened all the windows to get some cool air but that was too loud as the room opens on to the busy road with lots of traffic. Wi-Fi is OK, but could not connect to VPN. It was a short stay checked in at midnight. I was travelling from East Coast, so that is 3 AM. Did not bother to complain to staff and checked out 8 AM local time.
The mattress with its loud rubber squeaking was completely INSANE!!!? It was something from a comedy show or hidden camera. I have never imagined something so aweful. Worse yet, when we told the front desk, we were told a Manager would call us. Nope. We called amd emailed. No return call. There is no excuse to have such HORRIBLE customer service as to not even return a phone call.
Cleanliness, location, price and everything
Charging Extra 50 USD , for Incidental charges no doubt same wlll be refunded but they should have that much faith in customer
It was 3 blocks to the Moscone Center. The employees were very friendly and helpful. Historic/ small rooms.
Price was outrageous for the room - $349 a night (but we were there during the Pride Parade and Library Conference). We had to sleep with the windows open, weak AC - air temp not the problem, but street noise. Water pressure in shower came and gone. Both of us seating at the end of the bed flipped the mattress.. Surprise!
Great value! Great location for Moscone Convention Center. Cozy room (small), but very clean and quaint. Good for one person who's not planning to spend time in the room other than to sleep. T.V. was great with fast channel surfing, solid cable connection. Although old building, everything was very clean. Clean bathroom, great water pressure.
I don't think there was room service - no menu or hotel binder in the room. Not a lot of space to put toiletries in the bathroom, but that wasn't a big deal. Wifi didn't work in the room - totally weak connection.
Unique room small but lots of windows that opened to Mission st and large wallirrir behind bed wall! !mission and 5 th st parking garage just across street , short walk to Moscone Center with Starbucks on way
Close parking and walking distance to Moscone Center
The price you pay for a hotel in that location was great. It was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The shampoo and lotion provided was good enough that I didn't need to use my own (it was Bath & Body Works brand). And the towels were nice and fluffy - not thin and scratchy.
It was pretty worn around the edges. Facilities were old and walls were badly in need of a paint job. The room was small and the bed creaked. The WIFI was slow and unreliable. The walls were pretty thin and you could hear other guests and street noises clearly.
The place had character good location staff was good
Rooms weren't cleaned enough, broken outlet in bathroom and rooms were kind of tight
The night clerk was very helpful. When asked about a vegetarian restaurant she took the time to see if her favorite one was open. Great location if attending a conference at the Moscone Center.
The traffic outside the hotel was a bummer and kept me awake for the better part of the night.
It was only a mile away from the expo we were there to see. The restaurant down stairs had great food.
1) the rooms are way to small for the price. 2) $40 a night for parking is a little outrageous. Parking should be free if people are staying at your hotel. 3) The bathrooms are about the size of a small closet. 4) Their beds are probably the noisest beds I have ever herd. 5) It is a really old place, so I know they can't do any thing about this. But you can hear every thing in this hotel.... From the maids cleaning down the hall, to people taking a shower in other rooms (and talking in other rooms). 6) There is no pool or spa. Overall I probably won't be returning to the Pickwick. For a two night stay my bill was $460, and I booked my room 9 months in advance. For that price I would much rather stayed at the Marriott.
