Super Shuttle dropped me off at the lobby door. I walked in and tried to absorb the train wreck that is the Grant Plaza Hotel Lobby. There was no mention of this on the hotel's website. I gritted my teeth and checked-in. The room was clean, but very tight for space. Two twin beds with a computer desk to one... More

This hotel is in Chinatown and is only a short walk to Union Square - so the location was pretty good. When we checked in the first room we were given was extremely small with one small covered window, when we asked to move to another room they said no problem and moved us to a room on the 6th...

Lobby barely usable because of construction and room we were given was depressing. No dresser to put our clothes away. Fortunately Expedia was able to get our reservation cancelled and we found another hotel.

The noise of creaking floors above may keep you up all night. The room was what you would expect for the price, adequate and clean. Great location easy to see all the sights of San Francisco. Would pay extra next time for a better hotel to get a good night sleep.

We arrived to the hotel a little bit early and were able to check in which was great. The hotel is under renovations so the reception area is quite cramped. They didn't do renovations on the weekend which was good. The room looked better then in the photos as we got a renovated room I presume. It was quite small... More

Very small bed. Not long or wide enough for 2 average Americans. A portable fan would be nice also. No coffee/no lobby to sit. Bathroom was nice & desk with chair was nice. Location is great if you want to be close to Chinatown.

My parents and I enjoyed our time at the Grant Plaza Hotel. Although it was going through extensive renovations it was always clean & quiet. The hotel manager was a sweet, friendly lady who was very attentive to our needs. It was prime location, right in amongst the thriving Chinatown & a short walk from Union Square & surrounding shops.

Great location, very good price and newly renovated. Worth the value for all the conveniences. Very convenient to Chinatown, shopping, eating, transportation and financial district. Walking distance to North Beach, Pier 39 and tourists spots.

It is located in the middle of China town, the staff is friendly and the price is relatively cheap for a city like San Francisco having a good ratio price/value. Strongly recommended for tight budgets, the rooms are clean but maybe small. However you will spend most of the time walking down this beautiful city.

Have stayed here several x's in the previous years. Had negative expierences then too. They "don't like Westerners here". They are renovating! They should knock-it-down, and start over. Beginning with New Owners.They are cranky old-school Folk, who know nothing of Customer Service. This one time: They LOCKED ME out of my room! (which is illegal) I had been drinking, and... 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.
