Have to start off saying location, location, location. Next door to Bloomingdales, across from the Mint, 1 block from the BART - can't beat these. The price is seems high but not really for San Francisco. The property is older, rooms small, but the bed was VERY comfortable and the room clean. Staff awesome and very helpful. It may seem... More

The hotel is good (just do not accept the rooms at the end of the Hallways they are SMALL) ... Good Room Service. The best part is that it is about 1 block from Market Street and Westfield Mall. Also very near to places like the Moscone Center. It is expensive but most of the hotels in that zone are... More

Staff argued with me that the soft drink machine was functional and then said I could walk to a nearby liquor store to get a soft drink. Since the location was walking distance to conference locations that was fine but don't make a wrong turn or your in homeless land

We've stayed here several years. The rooms are comfortable and the staff very courteous. Prices are reasonable. There are good restaurants and movie houses nearby. We love the location: near Westfield Shopping Center and Amtrak bus stop, BART, cable cars, Union Square, and a short bus ride to Caltrains. Also convenient transportation to Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown and Golden Gate Park... More

I read some pretty poor reviews before we arrived at the Pickwick and was expecting to be disappointed, I wasn't. Maybe we are just easy to please but the room was great, the squeaky bathroom door the only tiny irritation. We stayed 3 nights...and yes it was noisy from traffic...but given its excellent location hardly surprising and we were so... More

Stayed here for a night with my girlfriend while in between apartment leases. Nothing special but nice for the price. King bed room was clean, spacious, and well decorated. Staff was friendly. Would not wander far from the hotel at night but taking cabs to/from was safe. Most surrounding streets are nice but definitely easy to find yourself in a... More

Our 4 night trip to San Francisco as park of our tour of California was booked through a travel company who recommended this hotel and the pictures we were shown looked quite grand! However... When we arrived, we realised that the location of this hotel is very close to a rough neighbourhood. Everyone including our taxi driver told us not... More

This hotel was way too expensive for the 3 nights we spent especially given that it was not that nice. This is definitely a 3 star no more. Overall, the hotel was not terrible and provided everything we needed. It could use some renovation as some things were a little run down. The beds were not the comfiest. I found... More

My husband and I love San Francisco, especially the eating and shopping to that city. That said, we choose a budget a hotel to sleep that is still mid-class comfort. We stayed at the Chancellor last time and loved it, unfortunately it was sold out this trip so we tried the Pickwick. Huge mistake. Here is why: Staff: They NEVER... More
