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.
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
Everyone was really helpful
Beautiful room Concierge Club not well serviced during the evening drinks
I like the fact the beds are away from the busy hall. the decor of the hotel; a little boring
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.
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.
The location No.
Great location, beautiful hotel, very comfortable and large rooms.
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.
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.
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 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 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.
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 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.
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.
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
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.
Location Old room, not very clean, no fridge or frigobar in the room, old carpet, smell old
Staff was friendly Room was not that clean. Starbucks in lobby closed to soon. Had to hike to tower 3 to get to pool, not worth it. Do not stay in any rooms overlooking the parking garage. Seems like that's where the party's are. It was so loud. People screaming from the street. Hopefully I will not have to stay here again for work.
Wonderful location. Beautiful building Very busy hotel . Check in lines are long.
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 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
Inmaculate beautiful building with lots of history, great location, really enjoy the stay
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.
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 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!
The location, helpful and friendly staff, nice size rooms N/a
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.
Great location Customer service was great Amenities could be better Rooms and bathrooms are a bit small
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.
View, room, service
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
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???
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.
The fairmont has maintained the old style luxury without cutting corners. Fantastic staff, location and NO TOUR BUSSES!!
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
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.
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.
Reputation was indeed lived up to ...better than I expected Cost of overnight parking
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.
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
The view is amazing in the linens were very comfortable Valet parking is a bit steep in price
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.
The location and our room size No complaints
Mood Took too long to check-in
Very comfortable bed. Free wifi. Good gym. Very friendly staff and they sell oddities water for $1 a bottle. A little bit dated interior
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Old & tired Tired
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.
Great food, staff and service. Valet took a little long.
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.
Expensive mini bar, breakfast etc
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.
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.
I loved the large room! The space was great. Loved the airy feel.
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.
Room was nothing special the lobby and bar were cool The room was was average and bathroom was very old decore
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.
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 staff was exceptional. ALL of them. Not much. The spa was priced really high so we ended up making other accommodations.
Convenient location. Beautiful view of San Francisco
Bedding, bed, pillows & nice bathroom. Was after hours & our request for room service was still met. Nothing.
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 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.
Most of it is the location and the good value The service was not great very unpersonal
The room was fantastic and the staff was great.
The staff was great specially the greeters at the door and baggage handlers Location location location
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.
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.
The staff were very professional .
Desk service, cleanliness, wine and cheese, coffee and fruit
The staff was friendly and greeted us each time we returned. Happy hour was a nice opportunity to meet other guests and unwind before dinner. The rooms could use some simple updates (ie. New bed spreads)
Very clean hotel. Comfortable beds, friendly staff. Big spacious rooms. Breakfast was good, wine in the afternoons was a plus. I recommend this hotel to everyone. Overall I loved this hotel and would stay over and over again. Only thing that was a bit of a nuisance was the street noise when the windows were open but it is to be expected. We are in the city.
- location was nice - did a complementary happy hour which was nice - expensive for the amenities and services - no air conditioner, so had to keep windows open which was noisy facing a busy street - uncomfortable bed with only two pillows -mediocre breakfast (not very good pastries) -expensive parking -expensive room occupancy tax
Very spacious room, good housekeeping service. Nice common area for breakfast and evening wine (complimentary). Decent location on the edge of the Tenderloin, no problems walking up Post St from Union Square around midnight. Very old carpets, very poor wi-fi connection.
Great location, lovely hotel, comfortable and clean rooms, friendly staff. Really adds great value to a nice San Francisco holiday. Pretty close to everywhere in downtown as well.
The room has potential to be a great SF destination. plenty of room. Mini Kitchen stocked with reasonably priced snacks and drinks. The front desk was very helpful and friendly. Wow! The place was noisy. There was a loud group on the street that so loud that I could not sleep. That is the only reason that I did not give excellent reviews for comfort. I called the front desk, but the group never quieted down. And the group was using the N word like Donald Sterling.
Wine and cheese reception. Location. Room decor.
Close to all main San Fran attractions. Hotel has no Bar or Dining facilities & the partner 'Pub' the White Horse is a dirty let down.
Comfortable bed; easy to take advantage of sightseeing; walking is convenient; complementary breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese is very satisfying. Noise outside building; very small bathroom; closet inside bathroom; use of bathroom light requires also use of noisy fan.
Location is perfect and room was a good size
Close to shopping and away from touristy areas like fisherman's wharf.
Fabulous hotel, fabulous location, great staff
the hotel has a relaxed style with the trappings of luxury. Most of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and made us want to return Some of the check in staff were rather aloof and unhelpful
Fantastic as Always
The staff were exceptional, attention to details superb. The rooms were beautifully appointed. The location of the hotel to the theater district and Union Square is very convenient. I will definitely stay there again.
The staff were phenominal! No better way to end the day than to sit down in the lounge and listen to the piano. All around beautiful hotel.
Nice, helpful staff, old world charm, beautiful view from our room in the 6th floor. Nob Hill is not as central as other hotels.
The staff is friendly and willing to do anything to make your stay perfect. Room service is fast. Parking valets are always available. The bar/restaurant is a wonderful place to unwind at the end of the day or drop in for a night cap. I love this place.
Quality of service provided, location of the hotel & value for money None
Loved the charm of the Hotel. Wonderful huge bouquet of Lilly's in the lobby. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly, especially the doorman!! Very informative!! Our room was clean, large and so comfortable. Yes, the windows do open and it is so nice! The location was perfect!
Really enjoy the Huntington. Professional staff and also provided a courtesy upgrade.
Perfect location, clean, friendly staff, a perfect get away weekend...and as advertised, the best breakfast in town.
Location, furnishings (wonderfully comfortable beds!), friendly staff
The attention that most of the staff display for you The wait time in the dinning room
Very clean hotel with an excellent staff.
Very upscale, attentive to guests. There are better values at comparable hotels.
Location is perfect. Room is clean and well decorated. Stuff is nice. No internet in the room and the valet parking is very expensive 57USD.
The hotel is very comfortable and the staff is top-notch. Even though the lobby is small that is insignificant since no one goes to a hotel to hang out in the lobby. The beds are very comfortable and the room is turned down every night.
I loved how the hotel is located in a convenient area; we easily jumped on a cable car to Fishermans Wharf. The staff was professional and helpful. This hotel is a true 5 star luxury hotel. nothing. It was fantastic!
Very comfortable room and bed, clean, nice design, excellent service, personnel available and helpful, perfect location right next to Union Square easy access to restaurants, waterfront, shopping, and transportation to the rest of the city I think the hotel can be compared to others of the same level, I did not find a special feeling to it or unique features, however my stay was very pleasant and would consider again
We liked the location the most, right at the corner of Union square and a block away from Chinatown, the Hop on/Hop off bus had a few stops around Union square. The staff was always friendly, the fruit and water we received upon arrival and the turn down service every night are also nice touches. Housekeeping was attentive. Upon arrival our room didn't smell really fresh, but couldn't say it was dirty. The windows can be opened however, so you can let fresh air in. The closet space is really small, but we didn't mind taking the clothes out of our suitcases. We thought the room was quite small, but maybe that was because we just came from a hotel suite in Vegas. You could also hear all the street noise (windows closed) and the neighbours easily, it seems the walls are thin. When housekeeping knocked on the door of the room next to us, it sounded like they knocked on our door.
great location. nice staff, excellent service, available communication (internet, phone) The parking is too expensive, and there was no breakfast in the deal
The game room downstairs is fantastic. The rooms are mod in decor and the beds extremely comfortable. The staff is top notch. The place is just cool.
Was very confusing to get around to our room (was in another building) and there were a few scuff marks here and there on the walls and also the remote control had a chip/crack in the back.
We loved this hotel. The game room downstairs was a huge hit with the whole family. The location cannot be beat.
I loved the game room and all of the stylish touches to the room! The color schemes felt good and the staff was very pleasant. I did not like the elevator. Way too small. I also could smell a stinch throughout the hotel like old moth balls. Just being honest. Also, just my opinion, but I think the hotel should offer breakfast. While I do appreciate the espresso in the room (which was delicious), I'd rather have food; if I can't have both.
A bit cramped but functional
The staff is very friendly and helpful Poor ventilation in bathroom
Staff was extremely professional and super nice! The hotel was centrally located to everything and the room was really cool! Loved it!!
Daily greetings from the hotel staff. Very helpful concierges. Housekeeping not being stingy with towels. A restaurant on site.
The staff was amazing. We also had every comfort at our fingertips without any pretentiousness or high prices.
The attention to detail regarding the comfort of the bed, the quality of the bed linens and pillows was evident and appreciated. I slept very well even though my room faced Post Street. The hotel is old and staid. Only so much can be done to mask this fact. I was disappointed and amazed that the "soaking tub" of the room description was in fact just an old bathtub. The continental breakfast included in the club level rate was very adequate, but required going to the dining room, not the 4th floor club level lounge per description.
Staff was considerate and helpful in every way. Food in the Nob Hill Club was excellent. Great views from Top of the Mark. Furniture in lobby needs cleaning or reupholstering. Looks dated. Bathroom was small and dark. I was there 5 days and one of the elevators was out of service for 3 of those days.
Location is good, close to everything I booked this reservation months in advance for a large group, and still, upon check-in there was alot of miscommunication and confusion about the reservation (how many rooms, names on the reservation, etc). Staff was not warm or particularly helpful at all, there was an obvious lack of hospitably and willingness to help that you receive at most hotels. The hotel itself is average, its very old and outdated inside, the walls are thin so u hear conversations next door, and the rooms are small. There were very limited hours for the restaurant/lounge downstairs, and overall was just someolace you'd go to sleep and thats it. It really was just ok. Many other hotels in the area that offered more for the price. I wouldnt stay there again.
Nice people. This place would be great, but it need a renovation. It just looks like it hasn't been kept up in some time. Needs some fresh paint and some updates. It's in an area that not much is going on also
Comfortable room and good location. Noise level was fine despite being on the same street as the cable car. A bit run down in appearance and small old elevators. Poor customer service upon check. We were given a hard sale to sign up for hotel program upon arrival.
The location of this hotel is great with walking access to the waterfront, Union Square, cable cars, and public transport. The staff was excellent and very attentive. The room was everything we wanted, plus a great view. The restaurant had a good selection. The night club was really fun. We would definitely stay here again.
Decent location, nice hotel. Don't like the weekend charge for "top of the mark" tourist trap.
Great place to stay if you want to be treated like royalty at a very reasonable price. We highly recommend staying here and also having drinks at the Top of the Mark. Excellent views of the "city by the bay" and the music and service is awesome! Do yourself a favor and stay here. We do every year for almost 20 years. You won't regret it!
Historic Great location Staff was super friendly and helpful especially the valet Noise level in the rooms. Windows do not block out the noise from the streets so you can hear Grace Cathedral bells and the cable cars which is great but also the loud drunks in the middle of the night as well.
Room service was good, bed, pillows & frette Sheets were excellent. Dark bathroom, dated room in general...for the money I prefer the Fairmont.
A great location and views A little pricey
Great location, modern decor, and cozy spot to relax in! Our new favorite hotel!!!
Loved the boutique vibe that the hotel has, it seems SF is lacking modern hotels that are similar to the Ace and plentiful of tacky hotels. The decor is very minimal, with concrete floors- it feels similar to a loft you would want to live in. The restaurant downstairs had a really great brunch and the staff were very friendly. The actual location is pretty central, so it's not that difficult to leave the touristy area of Union Square. There wasn't a mention of the $45 (plus tax) for the valet. So that got a bit expensive. You also have to call 30 minutes ahead. The shower is also a lukewarm temperature. And a bit difficult to work with it being stuck.
Great location, cool decor, friendly staff It's older and in a loud area, elevator was creepy
Use the jaccuzzi, would have used the restaurant but it was too pricey. The people there seemed a bit stuffy, including the staff. When I asked a question it was like I was putting them out.
This hotel is well-located -- easy to walk to Union Square and Chinatown, walkable to the waterfront/Embarcadero, and a quick drive to the Mission, Golden Gate Park, etc. The staff could not be more pleasant and helpful. The lobby area is a nice place to lounge, and the rooms are comfortable. It would be really helpful to have coffee makers in the room or room service -- there is coffee in the lobby, but if you are traveling with kids or have an early morning, it is useful to have it in your room. I didn't care for the fact that the water bottles in the room had price tags. It would also be nice if the wine service rotated wines.
I've stayed at this property several times and it's convenient and a great property. My room had a moldy smell that got worse over the two nights I stayed -- I haven't had this experience at a Monaco before ....
The decor was cute, and the room cleanliness we immaculate. Hotel rooms in San Francisco are pretty small, and this is no exception. However, the reception area was luxurious and beautiful, perfect during their evening wine receptions. I could go on about the wonderful staff- really, all of them acted like they were my friends, excited to tell me all about the good shopping, eating, et nearby that I HAD to try ; ) They were right too!
The staff really was fantastic and pretty much bent over backwards to accomodate us in almost anyway possible. Plus I learned after the fact they are really pet friendly. Thats good to remember for the future. When I booked through booking.com the description said that the room I was booking would have a jacuzzi tub. I was going on a romantic get away and booked this room for this price becaue I thought it would have a jacuzzi tub. The room was beautiful, but no jacuzzi tub and the bathroom was a bit small at that.
Great hotel - feels very luxurious, good staff, and complementary wine hour! Highly recommended. Our second visit and we'll definitely stay there again when in SF. Rooms could be larger. Area - although only a couple of blocks from Union Square - gets more edgy late at night, but that's how San Francisco works.
It nicely located near Union Square. The staff were very helpful. The hotel was clean and well kept. Our room was very nice except no view but that was ok. The hotel has complementary bikes for guest to use (great way to get around the city). Very comfortable place to stay. Would stay there again.
Doggy Birthday Party Oliver's 3rd birthday. Benefit for animals that assist. Great get together. My toilet clogged the 1st night. very uncomfortable sitiutation. I am not a large person. (get my drift). so it wasnt anything that should have caused a problem.
Location. Rooms were clean. Rooms small, older building, odd furnishings, no views. San Francisco has many great hotels but this is not one of them.
Hotel Monaco used to be one of my fav hotels in SF. This new Marker is horrible. They closed the spa, breakfast is extra charge. Parking costs 58 dollars. Short on staff to take phone calls. Take your business somewhere else.
The staff were very nice and helpful. The room was clean and the rooms style was not bad. The hotel is close to union square and great area to walk around. The decor pillows on our bed were dirty. My bathroom shower towel was only changed once during my four night stay. I found the restaurant prices high and the waiters were not so nice.
Location and decor.
