We have our timeshare at Powell Place. We've stayed there a few times. The staff is warm and friendly. The rooms are clean, quaint and comfortable. It's like having an apartment in the city. It's located on a hill so there's lots of walking. Great location and less than a mile from Union Square and Chinatown. If you want to... More

My wife and I treated ourselves to a getaway here at Easter. It is a splendid Victorian nestled among the classy high rises of Nob Hill, just a short walk to China Town, Grace's Cathedral, and the Mark Hopkins, Fairmont and Ritz-Carlton hotels. The cable car, which clangs all day long just outside the front door, added to the old-time... More

We got one bedroom suit, the room is very clean, very spacious. Bed is comfortable, the cable car stop is right down the block. If you need wifi , they charge 7 days for $20, 4 days or less $12. The parking garage is 3-4 blocks away.

I went here last year whilst visiting my sister in the States. The staff were extremely helpful and polite when we asked to change rooms twice. They went out of their sYstem to make our stay pleasant. Very clean. Only downside is that it is right next to the cable car terminus and could be quite noisy in the room.

This place is not so great. It's easier to list the issues here. 1)They have an elevator that serves half the establishment. 2)They don't provide shampoo and conditioner which should Be a given. 3) Some lights in my room didn't work and I was told "oh well, we noted it." When I showed my dissatisfaction with that answer, the front... More

This place is just lovely, from suite that we occupied, to the welcome at reception, the location and everything about the place as a whole. The people are friendly, the place is spotless and the proximity to everything is just the ideal place to stay. Chinatown is a couple of blocks away, Union Square a couple of blocks down the...

Awesome location and traditional suite style hotel in the centre of San Francisco! We stayed 7 days as part of a time-share with Royal Holiday and will likely return again and definitely stay here! I want to say lots but where to start!? The hotel is a traditional SanFran style suite with small but full kitchens. There are two buildings,... More

. . . 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

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.
