This beautiful little hotel is a find. We stayed here in October 2013 and couldn't have chosen a better location and hotel. It is at the top of Powell Street near California---very close to The Fairmont. We had a suite with a bedroom-living room and eat-in kitchen. Daily maid service with a chocolate on the pillow. comp. newspaper daily--friendly staff.... More

Rooms have street noise, but that was expected. The cable car goes by frequently. You can walk to a lot of places while staying here, just remember that it is all hills. It struck me as odd that we weren't allowed to take our room key out of the building, but it actually worked out okay. There was always someone... More

Stayed here for one week and it was perfect place to stay as it was located right on two of the cable car lines and close to all bus routes. One block from china town and couple blocks down hill to Union Square. Three great lounges within 2 blocks - Top of the Mark (must see), Tonga and 21st floor... More

Stayed here for one week in a studio. We are accustomed to larger accommodations when we get a timeshare but we know that San Francisco is unique in that these Victorian places are converted for this purpose. It is nice having a fridge and dishes, coffee maker, toaster, microwave and 2 burner cook top. Bed was comfortable but the room... More

Stayed at this timeshare property on my recent trip to San Francisco for the first time and I have to say I was impressed. I wasn't expecting much from the photos, but I have to say it looks way better in person. The hotel itself is small and quiet, with not much activity even in the lobby besides minimal staff... More

Powell Place is a great place to stay in San Francisco! We are owners of a 1BD Suite and we come here to stay usually three times per year. Centrally located, three blocks up from Union Square on Powell Street (the Cable Car Line). The staff is wonderful and very accommodating and helpful!

Great accommodations and location. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a one bedroom unit with kitchen. We were able to prepare simple breakfast in the room and get other meals out. Coffee makinhgs were provided. Be prepared to walk up and down steep inclines. Powell Place is right on the cable car line. Although one usually... More

Very good location and accommodations: Nice area between two cable car stops, just minutes from Union Square and a nice ride to the Wharf. Very friendly and helpful staff (except one on the younger front desk members could learn from the others). Nice touch with a rose in the room upon arrival, and chocolate every day upon return. We were... More

I recently spent a fabulous week in a Nob Hill suite at Powell Place! The accommodations were perfect; the kitchen had anything I could possibly need, the living space, bedroom, and bath were extremely well appointed and very comfortable. The bed was scrumptous; I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud! I had more than ample space for my... More

I got a 1 BR Powell Place as a timeshare exchange. We got one of the back rooms, with a nice enclosed patio. Outside we have a table with 4 chairs and complete privacy. We’ve left the door open the last two evenings to cool off our space. The kitchen area is minimal. There is an under counter refrigerator, a... More
