Great reception staff, personable, professional and friendly. Perfect location accessible to shops and restaurants!
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!
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.
Great stay at the Hotel Nikko, definitely pay $25 for access to the pool and spa.
Beautiful interior design Expensive vehicle stay rate. Small room
I was very happy with the hotel, location in the city, the service & the staff. I couldn't stay longer.
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.
Concierge was very helpful in arranging airport transport, provided multiple comformations. Staff was very friendly and polite.
Location Fees for Internet and gym. Additional fees for more than two adults.
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
I found the staff very friendly and accommodating. I would easily recommend the hotel to others.
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.
The location and our room size No complaints
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.
It was clean, well-appointed, in a great, central location, comfortable & staffed with friendly, welcoming, helpful staff. They even had a phone/MP3 dock w/ speakers & alarm by the bed, which was really nice & handy. As with most SF hotels the price is a little steep, but more reasonable than many. The cable cars were a little noisy, but didn't really bother us. Valet was over $50 for 24 hrs, but that's kinda how it goes in SF.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
Liked the location and how nicely appointed the hotel was
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.
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.
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
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.
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 funnels of it all great people great staff and an all around great time with everything that was offered to me that's all
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.
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
I booked a double room but was given a single.
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 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.
Wonderful location. Beautiful building Very busy hotel . Check in lines are long.
Inmaculate beautiful building with lots of history, great location, really enjoy the stay
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
Great location Customer service was great Amenities could be better Rooms and bathrooms are a bit small
Location is great, great service from staff Wifi is not included
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!
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 lobby, helpful staff No free internet in room
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
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.
relaxed and family like environment. Very well designed and pretty lobby. Too narrow corridor and small room.
Convenient location on Powell. Pretty much at the centre of everything. Staff were very responsive. "on-site" parking as advertised was maybe 2 blocks away !! and the 2 rooms I booked were to have city views - one definitely did not and the second one had very limited views
Location Based on 1 experience, we did not enjoy our dinning experience. Food was not well prepared. However, our server was cheerful and above average in service.
Great location, internet free with printer Rooms old fashion, a bit small, with old carpet
Poor internet connetion
smallest room ever experienced for a first class hotel and not worth the cost.
Walking distance to many sights. Too much furniture in small room. Strange smell in room and hall.
Nice rooms - reminded my wife and I of our stay in Italy. Great location and staff.
Staff pleasant. Able to check in early. Hotel located in union square.Please write at least 15 words
The staff were very helpful and the location was perfect for getting around. Ask for a quiet room at the back as street noises can be annoying at the front, on Powell. I would definitely stay here again. Panhandlers are a problem around Uniion Square, but they were not aggressive, just sad.
The hotel itself is beautiful and the location is fantastic. The staff were very friendly.
central location , free internet access, busy conceirge who doubles up as valet parking staff . no coffee house , tiny room , limited facilities. Hotel booking was incorrect, but the staff was fair enough to give the rate agreed upon after some haggle
Friendly staff, free very good wine between 5:30 and 6:30 PM No eating facilities
The decor, location were exceptional and even though the renovations weren't complete it didn't detract from our stay. The happy hour at reception was a great idea. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
convenience Our room is facing the street, therefore it was too noisy while sleeping
Nothing ,the staffs are rude Yes the rudeness of the front office workers
Very clean; very helpful staff; the wine tasting is a marvelous lagniappe, led to new friendships; location excellent; price very reasonable; would recommend to anyone!
Elegant, stylish, tasteful, and somehow affordable! Felt proud to stay in such a beautiful space. Loved the clean, but modernized antique details, soothing colors, and the fact that the overall look was not as overdone/over designed as many other hotels in which I have stayed. Proves that style need not cost $400 a night! No competition in my book in this price range for as stylized a place as this hotel happens to be. I would gladly skip some of the other 4 star amenities such as a pool or super large lobby to stay somewhere this lovely and reflective of my own lifestyle. Thank goodness I didn't have to stay in a big bland box hotel chain with cherry furniture and 1990 floral print bedspreads! My vacation was so much better as a result. My room was a bit warm - no matter how many times we turned down the heat, but as a result we slept like babies! To be fair, I never even told the staff about it, so they didn't even know.
The friendly helpful staff, especially Joel and Grant working on reception.The Manager's wine time allowed us to engage with other guests, this helped us tom enjoy our visit. The central heating system in the suite was problematic and we had to ask for assistance twice, the spitting hot water burned my hand on one attempt to turn the heating up!
Location and cleanliness (newness) of rooms. Wine hour was a fun addition - a great way to start a night. Friendly and helpful staff. Bathroom could have benefited from updating. But I would stay at this hotel again and will recommend this hotel to friends so this is only a minor negative.
Nice rooms - well designed, comfortable beds, good bath products, friendly staff. I liked that they were dog friendly, LGBT friendly, and had a daily run scheduled for guests. No in-room coffee and small gym where the TVs didn't all work.
Excellent location; free coffee and tea services in the morning; comfortable bed and towels.
We enjoyed the proximity to the cable car line, the trolley line and Union Square.
Though expensive, everything was top notch.
Very good hotel nice staying I will go agian and I will recommend for my friends No thing worth
Very good service and location.
The location was very good in the heart of the Union Square and everything was walkable from it. It was a little overpriced for what it offered.
Excellent, awarded restaurant. Great location. Did not like the location of the toilet door in the room - right next to the bed so you face it when you sleep.
Extremely helpful staff.
comfortable, friendly environment with staff and other guests Missed Maverick the dog...but it wasn't the hotel's fault, he was sick!
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.
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. Proximity to public transportation. Doors, fixtures show age, wear and tear. Facilities fee (which I assume were adjusted for SPG Platinum members)
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.
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
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
Comfortable and clean. Good location No room service
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.
We had a view even from the 9th floor. Very clean and cozy. Staff was really kind. No mini fridge :(
Poor accommodations. Rude staff.
You had to pay for WiFi and the restaurant had a very limited menu.
I lived the location and ambiance of the hotel. Rooms could be upgraded a little bit and thought it was a little pricey.
It was nice staying here again, it was comfortable and the price is the best for the location. Theyou need more towels in the room and more soap. When we got in there was not any soap to washave your hands and no bath soap.
pillows were horrible
Location, decor, charm of the interior design, Great bed, carpets clean as was the room. Greeting at the door! Valet parking, the up charge is too high. Scala Hostess on 7/11/15 for am was really bussing it out to keep the floor moving, even though business slow (1/4 full). The rest of the staff looked busy when on floor, but not around much. Bar top and more needs refinishing (replaced), a major public area and draw. The bar staff didn't appear engaging; as every customer walking through that main area, needs to receive at best a nod or smile. They were chatting it up with each other. Need more professionalism behind bar. Lighting Bar placed up around ceiling is poor choice, washed out look, good for bring out the natural colors etc. Scala, mediocre at best for am breakfast, the menu was not being followed to the word, missing Verde Sauce, Gruyere was not notable, was it there? There is a white plastic bin with drawers, center stage to the back, really!!! Dust on the table lamp, not wiped completely. The seconds of tiles used in the bathtub area make it look dirty. The pillows are third rate, hard packed fiber, burlap?. Room exterior windows need Washing! Bath Sink is big, great, too big for the worn out ugly. In room, sound travels through the walls from other rooms, you can make out the words. Staff should set clock. Hotel Clock radio needs to be replaced, dated, with old cell charger base.
Great location Small bathrooms, placement of valet was a bad place
Very friendly and helpful front desk stuff, bright and clear rooms on 17th floor, dominating San Francisco. Very clean, good accomodations, excellent wifi. Delicious croissants (even for Frenchies that we are!) and excellent pancakes at the Scala restaurant!
Starlight Room - Top Floor View Old - in bad need of repairs Rooms were tiny Elevators took forever to arrive Service was poor starting with the front desk
A bit noisy, but expected for the location.
Location great, but the noise was unbearable. Single pane window in the city under powel st. The constant early morning whistle of the doorman kept me awake. I had a headache one day and it didn't help having to listen to the door and whistle all morning. The plumbing/pipes screeching sound also constantly woke me up durning the night; which may explain the headache. Hotel is a cute boutique hotel, but the plumbing needs to be repaired & invest in double pane windows to replace the flimsy existing ones.
The Drake has a great location, it's clean and comfy with some traces of old excellence. The Concierge was very helpful with directions and suggestions for meals. Tiny bathroom but then, who comes to San Francisco to hang out in the bathroom?
The location was excellent. Friendly staff with spacious room. Loved the free wine cocktail reception. No jacuzzi
Leaving The room was falling apart noisy and cramped
Location is excellent. Big hotel where you get lost. Looks and feel old, needs a major renovation.
Great staff, beautiful hotel, good location
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
Great location great front desk people beautiful view Drink left in room from previous occupant
Very clean my friendly atmosphere. Nothing
They were accommodating and nice
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.
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 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.
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.
Everything else was great Price for parking
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.
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 hotel is stunning and the staff is so nice. I loved the history and the elegance of the place. I liked everything.
I liked the overall appearance - the old world charm with today's amenities - great pool! the servic nothing
Fantastic SF landmark...we never left the Hotel.
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.
The kids especially loved the indoor pool and the staff in the pool area were extremely gracious and helpful.
Location was great and staff. Bathrooms are way to small, shower did not drain properly.
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
The room was beautiful and the staff was exceptionally friendly. The location was convenient. We liked everything.
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.
I liked that we were able to find a great place on such short notice. The Manager on Duty, I think her name was Susan, was very helpful after one of the reservation agent accidentally mixed up our checkout time- and another Agent Brandon wasn't very kind to us. I ate most of my meals at the hotel, breakfast lunch and dinner- and I had three different bartender/servers during my stay that were all so very pleasant. Some even gave me directions to buy a hoodie at a nearby store because I didn't realize it would be colder there this time of year still. And the chef made me an awesome salad when I wanted to exchange tuna for chicken on the salad that comes with Lemon Dressing- it was absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend this substitution as the combination of greens and dressing go amazing with Tuna! It will cost you 2 dollars more as Tuna is more expensive (rightfully so) but it I ate the entire thing. I couldn't stop myself. Other than the mixup on our checkout time- I was happy with my stay overall.
Location and friendly staff Parking fee was extremely expensive and there was no free wifi. For the price, wifi should have been included.
Great staff, newly remodeled rooms and location was perfect. Nothing
Decent location, nice hotel. Don't like the weekend charge for "top of the mark" tourist trap.
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.
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
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.
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.
A great location and views A little pricey
Room service was good, bed, pillows & frette Sheets were excellent. Dark bathroom, dated room in general...for the money I prefer the Fairmont.
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!
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.
Location - excellent, v close to Union Sq/restaurants etc; staff - friendly/helpful Room - small, low on facilities eg no kettle for tea making; noisy pipes; hotel 'resort charge' of 20+ per day for wifi and coffee station in lobby is bit cheeky for tech capital of the world with over 100+ starbucks in city
Great ambiance, very noce room & amenities, great restaurant & bar, helpful staff. All good, only exceptions- pricey parking, scary corner of town. Pricey parking, scary corner of town.
I typically stay at a large chain hotel but couldn't get one on a short notice - the price was right and I really enjoyed taking a break from the same large business hotels. The lobby takes you to another place in time and everyone was very friendly. The room was clean and quaint. My colleague was staying at the much larger Hilton right across the street and loved the Serrano when he stopped by. It was a nice break from the usual and well worth it!
The hotel has lots of character, the lobby looks like the lobby of an old movie theater. The room also was furnished in period style, with a nice view. Very conveniently located near Market Street.
Friendly & helpful staff. Location, and Jaspers as an option for meals & drinks. A little worn, coffeemaker inroom,
Staff were friendly. Lobby was nice. Close to union square. I quite liked te location. Room wasn't that clean, dust balls and items under the beds. Beds very soft as mattresses were old. Bathrooms looked very tired and were cramped. Wallpaper scuffed up badly. Needed remodel. Also there are a lot of homeless in this area, I got woken up every morning in the early hours with neurotic screaming and shouting from people sleeping outside.
Bed and quietness Location not the best, but it is San Francisco...
This used to be a Kimpton Hotel and still has the cool factor that Kimpton brings to all its properties. Sadly, maintenance has waned since the hotel was sold to an investment company.
I really liked the architecture and our bellhop/concierge (they play double duty) was really nice. The rooms are small, which I expected from an old building. The mattresses are awful (truly, truly awful), which I din't expect and the price is high for low amenities and low quality. Also, the valet parking is $60/day. When we checked out, they asked how our stay was and I told them the mattresses were really uncomfortable and they just sort of ignored that. They probably hear it all the time. I won't stay there again.
Quiet with access to the theater district, Union Square and fine dining Bathroom a little small
Rooms were small but clean. Hotel was well kept for its age. Location is in a difficult side of town. Hidden costs such as a $22.00 tax. We made them take it off. $59.00 for parking we were not told about the cost. Then our account was charged other amounts we had no idea what they were.
Lovely spacious rooms and bathrooms, detailed and comfortable, great, and I mean great coffee in the lobby for mornings. The kind of hotel where you seat in the lobby and watch activity and relax. Just wonderful experience. Close to union square and Powell and market shopping and activity. It was perfect really!
Excellent, excellent hotel staff, could not be faulted. Hotel - good location and access to shops, theatres & restaurants. Although clean, bed linen - very worn and thin - in budget accom. Bed blanket - not appealing. towels etc; good quality.
*close to everything *nice comfortable beds & linens *very inexpensive *staff had limited knowledge of hotel amenities. For example, when I called ahead, I was told there was no iron available (there was one in the room). There were many others. *If I had known that the hotel heating was centrally controlled and that it was turned off during the day, I would not have stayed at this hotel. It was cold, windy and rainy, and I could not get warm. As a result, I came down with a cold upon my return home. *The water pressure in the bathroom shower was a trickle *The walls were paper thin
The staff was very accommodating and we definitely got what we paid for. The walls are so thin. We got a noise complaint and had no idea why, then the next morning, the people in the next room were just talking and we heard every single word they were saying.
strategic location, room furniture not too bad, im glad i got a white blanket but my fren got the red n he was so mad! despite all the noises came across(expected but front desk told us will not ok since we are getting a room facing the back but we still heard it, hard to imagine how bad for those rooms facing the street; so unlucky the lift breakdown and we need to carry our luggage by stairs!
In downtown Heater noise, and noise from prople walking on hall too loud
very close to city center they block the entire amount on your credit card since the first bight,even when you show up in time and you said you'll pay by cash
convenient location; friendly staff weak wireless signal
Hotel location. The size of the room was significantly smaller than indicated on the website images.
If you know which streets to skip, the location is good Too many homeless in the area. Remodeling made it dirty. The images are false advertising
Good location, clean rooms, reasonable rates Internet access is not for free. No breakfast. Noise from street
The staff was quite helpful and also let me leave my bag for the days whilst I was gone. I would highly recommend it and will plan on staying there next time I am in town!
The room was comfortable and the bar was friendly. The central heating is very noisy and kept us awake.
