The hotel charged us the incorrect amount and was not willing to modify the bill. There were dirty bed sheets in the room. In the night there was a lot of noise in the room. The location was great, right next to everything you need.

Just around the corner from Market St. Clean, comfortable historic hotel but very tiny standard room. We were two with only 2 suitcases but barely had space for the bags closed & upright! Friendly & efficient service. Ok for 1 or 2 nites. Sights & shopping around the corner. Parking $40 for 24hrs.

We enjoyed the Pickwick for most of our stay. It's conveniently located by the Market St Shops and the hotel was in reasonable condition, recently refurbished by the look of it. The front desk is friendly and helpful. Value is pretty good relative to San Francisco hotel prices. Only things for improvement would be (1) the wifi, which is pretty... More

The hotel is in a great location right by market street where you can get cable car, street car and buses to all over the city so really convenient. Originally we got the hotel and were given a queen room when we had booked a king. The lady at the front desk said no more kings available until tomorrow, so... More

Noise, seem to be fire trucks and/or emergency vehicles going by hotel all the time. More importantly staff missed my walk call on my depature date which made for a frantic dash to the airport. I arrived June 29th and departed July 2

Clean room. Location is great. Close to San Francisco Mall and a cable car stop. A little noise at night. Friendly staff. There is a nice bar and restaurant with fantastic breakfast. They did not have a single room available as we requested, however, they changed our room the next day. It was a great corner with city views in... More

The Pickwick is in a great location off of market and next to the Westfield. Also only about 2 blocks from the powell st Bart station. The rooms are quite small which is OK, but they are not laid out very well. The closet is in the back past the bathroom and very awkward to get stuff into or out... More

Stayed here for 3 nights early June 2014. Checked in after a long flight and was given a great welcome and an upgrade to the 8th floor. Our room was overlooking 5th Street, but there was little to no noise. Bed was really comfortable and we got a really good nights sleep. The room was perfectly clean and I could... More

The Pickwick was a great find. Although the building is old, the hotel has been updated with modern furniture and furnishings. The rooms are small but have everything you need: free wifi, decent cable, a fridge. If you don't need lots of bells and whistles (and why would you when you are located smack in the city's shopping district), it's... More
