If you know ahead of time that these are furnished apartments and not really a hotel, you'll be better prepared. I was perplexed at first because I couldn't get a bar of soap, a 2nd washcloth, and having my room cleaned one time in the three weeks that I was there was a quite expensive extra. Plus, if you stay... More

Great option for extended stay at Union Square area. I spent almost three months there and was very happy for choosing Gaylord. Special thanks to Andrew, Tracy and the other girls from the front desk.

Booked a room for three people believing that we would get two beds. Well, we got one + couch (without blanket and sheets). Staff couldn't really help after having to wait for 15 minutes for someone to finally show up. Somehow they found a spare blanket though. Wifi is only free in the lobby and for pay in the rooms....

The Hotel and Staff was excellent. Was very hesitent at first at staying at the hotel because the location was away from where i actually needed to be, However, Im so greatful that I stayed. The relaxing feel of the hotel makes you feel like you never want to leave.

We wanted a great location and place to rest pur heads at night. We booked through airbnb and got a great rate. Our room was on the 11th floor and was clean, tidy and basic. A bed, kitchenette, iron, hairdryer, 1 seat couch and chair, plus TV. Everything we needed essentially with free wifi in lobby. Perfect as we were... More

I had stayed at the Gaylord back in 2006 when it had just been renovated, and found it to be a perfect solution for short term accommodation. From that experience, I confidently booked a room for week in November 2011, thinking that it would be the same. Big mistake! Given all that has happened since 2006 it should have been... More

I traveled on september 2009 with my girlfriend. Since it was our first time in San Francisco, we wanted a central hotel near Union Square which wasn't very expensive. We found this hotel and started reading all the reviews in Tripadvisor and saw they were very good. We also contacted the hotel and asked them to send them more pictures,... More

I stayed here in half term holiday period with 5 girlfriends. The hotel is in a great location, only a few blocks from Union Square reached within 5 minutes walk. We were all put on the 12th floor (this is the highest floor). Rooms had all been decorated recently. (worth noting that hairdryers are now supplied as this is now... More

I have lived at the Gaylord for almost 9 yrs. and I have seen this beautiful building decline. In 2002, it was still a S.F. gem with the friendly vibe that you now must travel to Portland to find. It was an apartment building/community of friendly neighbors, Tuesday pasta nights, Friday happy hours, and Sunday brunches enjoyed by residents from... More

Having read the very mixed revews of this place, we arrived with some trepidation. First they tried to give us a room that was midway through renovation and seemed surprised when we refused it. We were then moved to a much nicer room on the 11th floor. The room is sparsely, but adequately furnished. We were there during a heatwave,... More
