I have been staying at The Baldwin for the last three years when I come to town for the marathon. It is the best value for the location, short walk to the marathon start and very close to lots of restaurants. The tour shuttle also pick-up/drop off right across form the hotel. The staff is very friendly and I love... More

This hotel is clean and comfortable and is located in a great spot - 3 mins away from Union Square! We stayed on 8th floor and the room was a good size and quiet. The towel arrangements on the bed are beautiful, and it shows how staff here takes care of customers. I would definitely recommend it, and would visit... More

Clean & comfortable hotel within a short walking distance of restaurants. Excellent location for Chinatown. Hotel was very helpful when we needed to leave our cases before picking up our hire car. Nice touch having coffee making facilities and snack vending machines in the lobby.

Perfect hotel for solo traveller. Comfortable bed, own bathroom, great location, handy to everything and friendly, helpful staff. No food on-site other than a vending machine but was not a problem with Chinatown at the end of the street and a great little bagel shop around the corner. Good wi-fi speed, ear plugs (from the plane) prevented any loss of... More

I'd read lots of reviews of hotels in San Francisco but ended up choosing this one as the price was very good for the overall standard and location. On a number of the reviews people were debating the merits of staying around Union Square or Fisherman's Wharf but for me the location is perfect as you are very near a... More

Stayed with 3 girlfriends at the Baldwin. Location of hotel is perfect with a 10-15 minute walk to most points of interests. Reasonable price but was small for a group of 4 people with 4 large suitcases. Bathroom was quite small too but we weren't too fussed as we spent our days out and about.

I stayed in the Baldwin Hotel in early June for six nights. With each passing day my appreciation for this hotel grew. In comparison to San Francisco's lofty hotel rates, this hotel is reasonably priced. The room may not be as modern or amenity filled as in a new hotel, but it is clean and comfortable. Good and free wifi.... More

The Baldwin is well located, walking distance to many attractions and with good public transport links nearby. After a lot of research we chose this hotel because of the relatively low price for the Union Square location. It is a no-frills place but the staff are helpful, the wifi was good and the rooms are comfortable & clean. Our room... More

The location is great, walking distance to Chinatown and Union Square, with many good eating places around. The room is tidy and comfortable. The Montgomery BART station is just a few blocks away, easy to get to and from SFO Airport.

Hotel is in great location just a street away from Union Square, restaurants and china town. Parking was close by as well and was able to take car out as many times as we wanted. Although Bed was a little uncomfortable due to the hardness of the mattress. Street was very noisy at night with garbage trucks etc but I... More
