After dropping the car off at SFO, we stayed at the Mayflower for the last 4 nights of a three week holiday and 1800 miles of touring. Perfect relaxing end to the trip. Walkable from Powell St BART station. It was well worth paying a bit extra for a city view; room bright, airy, clean and well equipped for chilling... More

Priced just right, perfect location, excellent service from the front desk, beautiful views...what more can one ask for? I love that the hotel has character, it isn't just a typical chain hotel, but it is unique and one of a... More

Nice old charm hotel that is very close to downtown and Trader Joes. Price was very good and the staff was very nice! I felt as if I was home. There is a small kitchen, so that helped save meal costs. There is also a great local pizza shop on the corner that serves a tasty table wine.

The Mayflower is a clean, comfortable, conveniently located hotel in SF with moderate pricing (a really good deal with breakfast included). It is within walking distance of Union Square, China Town, cable cars, buses, and more. Ambiance is old world (lcharming and gracious). Staff very courteous and accommodating. The Mayflower is definitely my choice of hotel for any future stays... More

My husband and I had a great stay at the Mayflower hotel. It was well priced and in a great location. It was a short walk to union square and if you don't like walking hills then there is a cable car near by. The rooms were nice and the wifi was good. Breakfast was also included that was handy!

If you compare hotel rates in downtown San Francisco the Mayflower offers the best deal. The rooms are spacious, clean and cozy. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Somehow this place exuberates nostalgia, it takes you back in time, in retrospect, compliments and celebrates on the rick cultural history of San Francisco and it's gold coast. This feeling alone...

This is a great place. I think it's the ideal SF hotel, imho. Classic, friendly, clean, centrally located, and with a great breakfast. It's an older building, with all the charm. Of course it also has thin walls and creaky floors, so you can hear people walking and talking nearby, and Bush street traffic can be loud. But the bed... More

I stayed 2 nights in April while in San Francisco for work. I booked by exchanging email messages with the hotel. The hotel is in a reasonably convenient location and the neighborhood felt safe. I had read previous reviews about the elevators so was prepared and found them to be just fine. My room was clean and was located on... More

Stayed at the Mayflower for three nights - we'll easily be back. Had a quiet room (#119) w/ plenty of space. Staff was extremely courteous and helpful. Breakfast was heavy on bread and muffins, but appreciated their use of actual coffee mugs and non-paper plates. Wi-fi was fine and they also had a couple of newish iMacs and a printer... More
