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 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!
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.
Great location great front desk people beautiful view Drink left in room from previous occupant
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.
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
The location A 4 star Marriott hotel without room service? In San Francisco? Get your act together. What a dated American hospitality company. Will not stay there again and would not recommend this hotel to anyone
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.
Location No swimming pool
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
Location is excellent. Big hotel where you get lost. Looks and feel old, needs a major renovation.
Everything else was great Price for parking
The bathroom was nice with shower and tub. The indoor pool and Hot Tub were great for relaxing after visiting the sites. There was $25 per room charge for use of the pool/hot tub but this was small price to pay for this feature. Aggressive panhandlers all over the city.
They charge you extra for the health club, which is not that great - I found that to be offensive!
Location, friendly staff Thin walls, cold pool
Great stay at the Hotel Nikko, definitely pay $25 for access to the pool and spa.
I was very happy with the hotel, location in the city, the service & the staff. I couldn't stay longer.
I found the staff very friendly and accommodating. I would easily recommend the hotel to others.
Beautiful interior design Expensive vehicle stay rate. Small room
Excellent location Good pillows, bed & linens I had a queen room, very small No remote control for the TV Long, long checkin/check out process. Gym in not complimentary
The room was quite nice. The staff was very curteous and helpful. The location is convienent. The price was reasonable. The pool was only available as part of the health club which annoyed me.
Location Fees for Internet and gym. Additional fees for more than two adults.
The room was smaller than what I'm used to, but very comfortable. The bed was plush, with high-quality bedding. Good shower and toiletries, fast elevators, comfortable lobby The walls are quite thin, and because the toilets are vacuum toilets, they are louder than average toilets, and you can hear everyone flushing. The bathroom door is also a stylish (but not noise-blocking) glass barn door, so if you are sharing the room with someone, they will hear everything that is happening in the bathroom. There is a $25 fee to use the gym and pool, which I was not aware of when I booked the room.
location fees for everything including gym and even moving anything in the mini bar. grout in shower old and stained, toilet off center and wiggled.
This hotel locate in the central of union square which is really convenient,close to the cable car stop;friendly staff. it's the worst Westin I have ever stay,inside of hotel is too old and I can hear everything that women who stay next door she said.$700 per night,i would choose hotel that is near Bound that area next time.
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
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.
The location, helpful and friendly staff, nice size rooms N/a
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!
Left a sweater called back immediately got security said nothing turned in, called back twice no luck. Guess it got up and walked away. Not buying it. Tough luck right
The rooms were clean and the safety measures that were in place allowed you to always feel safe Parking costs $62 a day. I know it is expensive in the city, but what a racket!
Anthony, the concierge, was able to book us a restaurant reservation when we had already attempted and struck out. Thank you, Anthony!
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.
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 $58/night + Tax. Took over 30 mins to get car out of lot when checking out. Mini bar in room was half empty and had empty bottles, a milkshake cup and food wrappers inside.
Great location Customer service was great Amenities could be better Rooms and bathrooms are a bit small
Good location, Comfortable bed, Nice bathrooms. Easy to walk to local "tourist spots" I booked a 2 double bed room for my friend and i. And paid in full up front. non refundable. What i got was 1 king size bed. (Resulting in an awkward situation for my friend and i) I guess they arent sure how to hold a reservation? (After booking i was sent an email stating this could happen) but i still dont understand how i can request what i need, and pay in full. And be given something completly different... There is no parking at all. You can either park on the street and baby a meter, or you can pay valet 60$ 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 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!
Convenient to BART's Powell Street station and to the cable cars at Powell & Market. Breakfast option was expensive so I found alternatives in the general area.
Shower and bed were good. Lack of in room amenities and mediocre dining options.

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.
You buffet is good for the American but your Chinese options are not too good
Cable car right in union square and the tour bus to see all of SanFrancisco nearby.
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!
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 .
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.
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
You had to pay for WiFi and the restaurant had a very limited menu.
Location staff and cleanliness No room service or mini bar
Comfortable and clean. Good location No room service
Poor accommodations. Rude staff.
Great location Restaurant can be improved, i. e. choice & prices slightly too 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.
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.
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.
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.
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
We had a view even from the 9th floor. Very clean and cozy. Staff was really kind. No mini fridge :(
Location. Proximity to public transportation. Doors, fixtures show age, wear and tear. Facilities fee (which I assume were adjusted for SPG Platinum members)
I liked the overall appearance - the old world charm with today's amenities - great pool! the servic nothing
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.
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
location near attraction false fire alarm at 12:30am
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.
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.
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
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.
Loved the central location and the historical ambiance of the hotel.
Since its remodel they have great rooms
Most of it is the location and the good value The service was not great very unpersonal
The staff was great specially the greeters at the door and baggage handlers Location location location
Everyone from the valet attendant, bellman, and front desk was beyond helpful and attentive. Even on a stormy rainy SF day, they were warm and ever inviting to me. They got me a room on the 27th floor with an amazing view of union square during the holiday season. I highly recommend. Also, the bathroom had great lightening and everything was very clean. Location simply can't be topped. Parking is a choice of valet between $41 around the corner and $60 front door. Wifi is also now FREE. The mattress sheet wasn't fully tucked in but everything else made up for a minor oversight.
Love the new contemporary renovations to the rooms and lobby Always like space, just wish the rooms were a little bigger, but overall great value for a city where nothing is inexpensive.
We should get a discount for the noise inconvenience.
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.
Staff was good. Our lunch experience at the hotel was very nice because the staff went out of their way for our 13 year old who was celebrating a birthday. We had people overhead who made who disturbed us for well over an hour. After calling the front desk to complain it stopped about 30 minutes after our call.
Very stylish, perfect location, hotel staff was very very helpful and courteous. Appreciated the free internet. Room lighting could have been better. Thermostat was a off and room was a bit chilly unless we used a high setting.
The staff were very professional .
Amazing service and experience! We we're there for our honeymoon and loved every moment. The staff went out of there way to help us.
Nice rooms. Polite staff. Nice bathrooms. Everything worked without an issue. At Reservation, called the 800 number. I was told they only had two suites available. No rooms. Two minutes later, I went on Kayak and booked two rooms with no issue. Service was in no way exceptional. It was a little irritating that bell desk couldn't get cab. Food/bar is terrible Surcharge for internet access is ludicrous
Very friendly staff, great service. The access to Equinox is fabulous! Prime, prime location--the best!! In-room dining is awful. I had breakfast twice, and was severely disappointed at the outrageous price for the poor, poor quality of every aspect of the food--coffee is burnt and thick like mud, toast burnt, side vegetables unbelievably expensive with NO quality. The fresh orange juice is good. And that's it. Otherwise, the hotel is just wonderful.
Given a corner room even though I booked via Kayak Provided with slippers Room was spacious and TV was large - guess is 55" Gym was well equipped but didn't have time to use it Easter bunny was on duty and there was a tableful of candy for the young and not so young - I didn't have any but still appreciated the effort Bathroom short on racks to hang towels Shower head water flow too wimpy Bathroom scale low on battery
I hosted a bachelorette party at the Intercontinental and it was great!! The staff was very accommodating and helped us with making sure all the girls were taken care of. The rooms were beautiful and spacious, and the hotel was extremely spacious. There was a "bouncer" type employee at night who gave me and the girls staying at the hotel a hard time. He required every girl to have a key in their hand to get in, even though we just had one person per room have a key because we didn't think it was necessary. He was extremely rude and borderline harassing.
Appreciated the staff the location and the lounge/restaurant. The room was great with a nice view each morning ....
The room stunk! For $600 get some air freshener.
Luxury accommodations. Very friendly and helpful staff. Valet parking fee is crazy high!
Awesome views of AT&T Park and the Bay. Front desk agent was great.
Comfortable bed, clean facilities Check out was at 12:00pm as normal but was woken up by maid knocking on door at 9:15am. Charged my credit card $100.00 more than what was on invoice when I checked out. To be refunded within 5days or so supposedly....... It would have been nice to know beforehand.
Great hotel and staff. They treated us perfectly. I would absolutely stay here again. No complaints as all. The location for us was a bit too close to some seedy areas of town. No problem, but you need to be careful which way you walk.
I liked how the staff was really attentive. Rooms clean, everyine real proffesional. I didnt like the fact that when u drive in to check in they dont tell u that the charge for parking is 65$ . Also that the water thats in the room thats bottled i didnt know they would charge me 8:50$ for it. Ridiculous! I seen when i checkd out!
People extremely helpful room service wasn't up to par, maybe because it was Valentines weekend.
good fittings and decor
The room and hotel are beautiful. We had a beautiful view of the city and Yerba Buena Gardens. The service is impeccable. Very comfortable bed and quiet rooms.
Service was excellent. Room service perfect. Bar outstanding. Concierge service spot on. Nothing
Great service. Excellent facilities. Great room
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.
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.
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 clean hotel with an excellent staff.
Very upscale, attentive to guests. There are better values at comparable hotels.
Perfect location, clean, friendly staff, a perfect get away weekend...and as advertised, the best breakfast in town.
Loved the location to union square and rooms were clean and comfortable
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.
Location, furnishings (wonderfully comfortable beds!), friendly staff
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
The attention that most of the staff display for you The wait time in the dinning room
Great views and convenient location!
Because we booked through the AMEX Fine Hotels program, we were upgraded to room with a truly fantastic view of North Beach, the bay, and the Bay Bridge; we were comp'ed breakfasts; and we got 5 nights for the price of 4. The hotel is in the financial district, which is very quiet on weekends.
Furniture was dated. Door locks did not operTe. They charge $60/night to park your car which was not disclosed up front.
The Palomar was clean, quiet and comfortable and in a great location. The woman working in the evening checking in guests needs more training. Either that or maybe she was having a bad night.
The staff was very friendly. The driver to the airport (George in the Towncar) was very courteous. Need a coffee maker in room. Not a deal breaker though of course.
Had a great time friendly staff great restaurant That nobody answered the phone at the restaurant for me to make a reservation fri night
Front desk personnel and bell service were exceptionally helpful. Rooms were nicely appointed - largest TV I've ever had in a hotel room. Central location right at Powell St. BART Station allowed me to get there quickly from Oakland Airport.
Windows face directly into office building just 10ft away. People in the office can see directly into your room
The location of the hotel was excellent. There were many nice dining, shopping and entertainment options very close by. It is also very close to a BART station so getting there from the airport is very easy. San Francisco is a surprisingly easy city to drive in as well, though parking is very expensive. Though the bed was very comfortable, it was a bit squeaky. Also, being on Market street means that there is a bit of noise but it's not excessive.
The service at the San Francisco Palomar was excellent. The front desk staff and doormen deserve top marks. They were helpful in every circumstance from procuring a taxi to giving directions or making suggestions regarding nearby attractions and walking distances. The hotel was clean, the restaurant was superb....fantastic breakfast! And the wait staff was superior. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and look forward to that happening in the near future. Hats off to the Palomar staff!!!!!!!
The Palomar is in a great location, the staff is very friendly, and the rooms are nicely decorated. Beds are OK. Restaurant (Bad Habit?) onsite had a nice quality breakfast which was pretty reasonable.
Good arrival and wait staff were both friendly and efficient. The door man was great and the team inside were extremely helpful. I have stayed in other SF hotels in the past and Hotel Zelos is a nice addition to the city. City hotel rooms can sometimes be small but the rooms at Zelos are very spacious! I also would like to say thank you for an overall smooth and fun experience! From booking on line with Kayak to speaking directly with the hotel, to checking in & out, everyone was super friendly and consistently would go out of their way to be helpful. Mixed message on parking After speaking with associates on two separate occasions. Then the confusion in the garage, mind you I thought I lost my ticket to return however I unpacked it when I arrived back home this evening. There was a problem between the hand written sign in log from the valet and the printed report from the front desk and the hotel's portion of valet claim check system also did not work. I retrieved my vehicle because I brought the only two matching keys and I have matching handmade key chains attached. Breakfast table with two nice chairs rather than a rolling office chair. That was weird. But it was also SF PRIDE weekend so who cares!
Close to everything in Union Square, clean and nice-looking inside. ...but that translates to a little over $300 a night, which isn't really worth it. Avoid it during the conventions in town.
The location was great and my room was quiet. There was a bit of mildew odor in the bathroom. If not for that I would have given an excellent rating, instead of good, for my stay.
Room was great. But we were placed next to the ice machine....the wall there sounded paper thin throughout the night as guest needed ice. Being stuck next to an ice machine at 2 am
The staff was great. They were very friendly and helpful. The location was also fantastic and the noon check out gave us a little additional time to explore the city without worrying about our bags. I would definitely recommend.
Great location for shopping and restaurants. Friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. Complimentary coffee/tea, cookies, fruit, & lemon ice-water in lobby.
Nice historic hotel in a great location. Friendly and informative staff. Room was small but we got one of the rooms on the top floor and the ceiling was about 15 feet high. It made the room seem much larger. There is no A/C in the room but it was comfortable with the ceiling fan and the window open. I liked hearing the sounds of the city in the evening. The city "noise" did quiet down during the night and had no problems sleeping. This hotel was recommended to me by my boss. He stays there every year for a reunion with college friends. I have not problem passing on the recommendation.
Perfect place to stay for all the important sights Trolley stops in front and goes right down to Fisherman's Wharf for great food and Terrific views, Lori's Diner is a few doors away with great food, Walgreens on the corner. All
Staff very nice and professional Rooms are just too small especially for price.
Bedroom was clean, furniture appeared recent. Location was reasonably convenient. Room was claustrophobic - barely room to walk around bed. Paint was fresh, but clearly covering 100 years of obvious wear. Musty smell. No air conditioning - couldn't get room quite cool/dry enough to be comfortable. Bathroom was dingy, marked up and had seen better days, and it was hard to squeeze into toilet between sink and wall, even then, wedged in by shoulder-level toilet paper dispenser. Plumbing noises from adjacent units were loud. Weirdly shaped closet with mismatched hangars that were falling apart.
Everything was clean and comfortable. The staff was kind and attentive. Location was perfect. Concierge was helpful. Absolutely would stay here again when visiting San Francisco. Breakfast wasn't included, but actually was delicious in the cafe downstairs.
It was a very nice family hotel with an interesting history. Well located right off Union Square. The hotel staff were all very nice. Though we didn't take advantage of them, the bar and restaurant both seemed nice. The weather was cool and the hotel had the boiler running. Our room must have been 80 degrees and no way to shut the heat off. We were on the top floor and the hotel staff offered to move us to a lower (cooler) room. The second floor room was just as warm. The rooms really need local control of temperature.
Reasonably priced, friendly and accommodating staff, coffee/tea available 24/7. Great wifi, mini fridge in room. Great water pressure. They updated all the right things. Coffee maker/microwave in room would have been an improvement, but not a sticking point. The service at Luques can be slow, but the food is good.
Great value! Great coffee/tea/water and they extended our checkout by 2 hours to accommodate our plans. Very nice. And BOGO cocktails for a night! Room is small but doable (without children).
Great location, good price, comfortable, professional, courteous staff. We had a room on the top floor, which was clean and quiet, with a ceiling fan rather than AC. Despite typically being a light sleeper, and expecting issues with street noise, I slept better there than I have anywhere in years, not really sure why (could have been the 12+ miles walking each day in wonderful San Francisco). The hotel is in Union Square, with its incredible shopping and conference centers. Chinatown is about .5 miles away (and a very steep hill), and Fisherman's Wharf about 1.5 miles; a fun walk if you're up for it (but Uber is fast an inexpensive, especially the pool option). If you're looking for a plush, modern American experience, this isn't it. If you're looking for an affordable, comfortable, centralized location to explore SF, or attend a business conference, this is a great choice. Rooms are small, no air-conditioning (though not really needed) and there was no real work surface for a notebook. Not a place to get work done. Bathroom was dated, but functional. There's no fitness center in the hotel but you get free use of a health club around the corner with lots of good gear and yoga classes, which were great. There's no coffee in the room, but there's a 24 hour a day brew available in the lobby with cookies I found impossible to resist. Wi-fi is free and fast.
Last minute booking. Great price! Pretty extraordinary. Prime location!
Great great location ! The best in san Francisco .
Location is the best thing about this hotel. That is, if you're a tourist. Old. Rooms aren't that clean. Views are terrible. No amenities. Windows didn't open. Floors creak everywhere. Loud. Ridiculously expensive.
It was very clean, and I liked the 24 hour gym and the location. The rooms are small, and the walls are paper thin -- very noisy, hard to sleep.
Location Small bathroom , dirty, poor breakfast.
Excellent location right next to muni/bart powell station and the cable car. room was nice, well equipped, pretty modern, nice bathroom, clean. Staff was good. Only negatives: the street noise is loud. I needed to wear earplugs. it was fine with earplugs which the front desk provided. the "included breakfast" is not breakfast. it is coffee (decent) and doughnuts. That's it. however, there is a nice little cafe at the front of the hotel that had very good breakfast bagel sandwiches.
Clean, convenient and helpful staff Dining option is limited in hotel
The bed The included breakfast. It was just donut. For the price I paid I wished there will be much more things to eat.
Location was good. Pet friendly for our 3 lb dog Building architecture and décor was cool. Stinky. Rooms are wayyy smaller than what appears in online pictures. Our luggage almost didn't fit into the room with us. Cable TV went out and back on about once per minute. Breakfast was a donut or croissant and coffee or juice. Would not stay here again.
There should be free English tea made available in addition to coffee in the morning and it will be good if this free tea & coffee can start at 6am instead of 6:30am and goes on till 11am instead of 10:30am. This extra small gesture will make a difference to many of your staying guests like myself. Lastly be punctual I walked down to M floor dead on time 6:30am on 5th Aug and it wasn't even ready until I asked twice the reception desk why no coffee yet then something was done Stephen NGAI
The only positive thing is the location. And that's it. The photos are completely misleading. This is an awful hotel and I was booked for 7 nights. I reduced that to 1 night. The rooms are small and shabby. It's old with old furniture and does not at all feel like a hotel. It's more like a good hostel. Don't stay here. Unless you like staying in hostels on a vacation.
I like the location near convention center and shopping. I even like the hubbub noise of the street and cable car. The housekeeping staff is honest and courteous, making sure I found my wallet and such. Of course, being in party central for the World Series Parade was a hoot! Roaches in the narrow dark closet was a rough surprise. Worse was the twin beds, like 1950's Lucy and Arnez. I don't know how I wound up with twin rather than queen. Prepaid meant no adjustment by the desk.
Modern rooms, good food, friendly staff Valet was eh, pricier but worth the money
