. . . but a very charming hotel on Nob Hill. This is not a hotel, per se, but a timeshare resort. Rentals are available, but perhaps not the dates you wish. If you do select this hotel, you will be happy you did. Quality is what they seek. And though some people have complained that they felt they were... More

Powell Place is a great location on Nob Hill. You have your choice of cable cars and public transit by walking half a very small block. You are one block from Chinatown and an easy seven block, downhill walk to North Beach. You can walk three blocks downhill to Union Square. Walgreens is two blocks away and the easiest place... More

If you can get in here, consider yourself very lucky. It's a timeshare that sometimes has units available. Each unit includes a fully-equipped kitchen -- you may not want to cook with such incredible nearby eating options, but it is convenient. Other features: High quality linens, impeccable cleanliness and service, very friendly helpful front desk people. Some units are "studios"... More

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
