We enjoyed very much staying in this place, the hotel was extremely well located, near the city center and we appreciated the modern style. It was a perfect start for our trip on the west coast discovering San Francisco.

This hotel is not well located and is not safe outside and inside. Surrounding streets are packed with beggars and junkies. The worst is that this hotel is not safe inside as our daughter had her tablet computer stolen in our bedroom while we were dining. The staff of the hotel didn't care at all and we sent an email...

When we were planning our trip to San Francisco we read ever so many reviews about this and countless other hotels, but eventually we decided to go with the Americania and I'm glad we did. It was handy to find, just off the freeway, and fairly central to getting about. The rooms were great, clean and spacious with plenty of... More

Did not like the location not in a good area to stroll in after dark. The rooms are set up so that all doors face a common area that is very, very noisy and had trouble sleeping and woke up early in the morning due to voices and doors slamming shut.

Hotel does not have air conditioning in rooms, just ceiling fans. Overall cleanliness of the rooms is not very good and they are small and overpriced since it is downtown SF. Also charge $30 for parking. Would not stay here again for business or pelasure.

There is only one thing to say about this hotel, stay away especially in the hot summer months. No aircondition, made it impossible to sleep in the heat. Carpets felt almost wet due to humidity in the room. A lot of noice from the Street at Night. Pool was hotter than a huttub, so it was not very pleassant. 35... More

this hotel is very overpriced for what you get. It was clean, but with no air, it was too hot to sleep. It's not in the nicest of neighborhoods and there are a bunch of hidden costs, including parking!

When booking this Best Western hotel I already adjusted my expectation, but even then it was way short of what I expected. It is very noisy because of the design of the hotel. You can hear people walking on the floor above, thin walls and also the noise from outside is terrible. Children running in the corridor and people talking... More
