Some friends I made a 3 day 2 night trip up to San Fransisco and heard about the Hotel Mark Twain through facebook so we decided to give it a try. The price was totally reasonable and from pictures it looked cute. Well the pictures did it zero justice. The decor and theming was absolutely stunning! They were very accommodating... More

The room, although it had 2 beds, was quite cramped, there was little or no room to rest a suitcase. The bathroom was so small that there was no space between the bath the toilet and the wall to put the bath mat down. The room was quite noisey even though it did not face the street. The rate was...

This is simply a very nice hotel with charming, clean rooms decorated with quotes of Mark Twain. Very good atmosphere, helpfull and friendly staff and reasonable prices. There is no "show off" just good service that made us feel at home and relaxed. The rooms are small, but big enough(unless you plan to stay in your room all day) It... More

This is a sweet old hotel with small (mine was) rooms that are nicely decorated with Mark Twain photos and graphics, tiny but perfectly functioning bathroom, small open closet with stackable drawers for unpacking. And a TV. I had no view except of another building's windows, but I didn't stay to look out the window, so no problem. Staff was... More

For several years I've stayed at various hotels in the Union Square area when attending plays, but several of my favorites have become prohibitively expensive. I'm thrilled to have found the Mark Twain, where I just spent my first, but not last, night. Not a lot of frills, but it's clean and tastefully decorated, and very convenient to some favorite...

Everything was awesome except for the lady working at the mornings and early afternoons in the front desk. I could not believe ho disrespectful she is. I am surprised you are still having somebody like her working there, is nothing personal, but a huge part of her job is to offer a service. So if she does not like her... More

I stayed at the Hotel Mark Twain during the JPM meeting. The front staff were quite friendly. However, I was very displeased with the laundry service. I dropped off laundry at 7am on Wed. On Wed PM, it was still at the front desk. The staff promised me that it would be picked up that evening and delivered by 9am... More

The hotel is located in the theatre district close to everything at all budget points, Kemal provided excellent service and great suggestions for exploring this beautiful city. I Highly recommend the MT for a cool stay in SF.
