I stayed here on one of my business trips to SF because I didn't feel like being right downtown. It is a very cute little hotel in a great location. The rooms are small, but sufficient for a single traveler. I really enjoyed being walking distance to so many great little places to eat and the ease of parking and... More

This little gem was delightful. Conveniently located near Marina which is why we chose the property. Rooms were very clean, newly redecorated and loved the retro feel to the property. Parking was excellent, staff was cheerful and very efficient. Housekeepers were super helpful & friendly. They served a nice little breakfast in the small lobby but most days we walked... More

We visited the first week in August and I would like to tell everyone that if they can find better people to book with I want to know about it. Everyone was so helpful and friendly (from the front desk down) that I can't express my gratitude to them enough. The rooms were very clean and well taken care of.... More

My friends and I stay here every time we come to San Francisco. The rooms are good-sized, always clean and stocked, and the staff is very helpful. The location is perfect. With Union Street a few blocks up and Chestnut Street a few blocks down, you'll never have trouble finding great shopping, dining, bar-hopping, movies, etc. Walking distance to the... More

Nice retro rooms with good bed and nice bathroom. Good breakfast with juice, croissants and boiled eggs. Very friendly and helpful staff. Walking distance to Pier 39 and Foshermans Wharf. Many bike rental possibilities around the corner.

We had an excellent two night stay at this hotel. It started with the super friendly and helpful check-in experience with Oscar who took the time to acquaint us with the area and give some tips for sites and restaurants which made us feel very welcome and comfortable. The continental breakfast included was the best I’ve ever had and it... More

I've stayed here a number times for work in the past year. The rooms are clean, colorful and comfortable. The breakfast in the morning is great, especially when you just want to grab a cup of coffee and muffin and be on your way. I've never used the pool or even seen anyone in the pool for that matter.

This hotel is located in a great neighborhood. It is conveniently located near many restaurants and it is centrally located for anything you want to do in San Francisco. The front desk was very helpful during our stay. For example they arranged a town car to take us to the airport. The hotel has free parking too. The pool is... More

NB. We checked-in to this venue, but chose not to stay and left approx 1hr after our arrival. Not sure what 'boutique hotel' stands for, but in this case, it means a clean, but refreshed and brightly painted motel that must date back to the '60s. Rooms were clean, but way too small for our family of 4 (with two... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
