Nice hotel, good facilities, free wifi, clean room but not very spacious and no aircon. Lobby under construction when we stayed but no noise disruption in the evening or morning. Close to shops and restaurants nice central location - 5 mins from union square and just inside china town.

We got there around noon. 2 girls at front desk couldn't seem to agree on anything. We asked to keep our bags there until check in. We filled out the tickets for our bags to store then the other girl gave us our room key and said to put our bags in the rooms closet if it hadn't been cleaned... More

This hotel didn't look too promising from the entrance and reception area but definitely surprised once upstairs. The upstairs landing has amazing stained glass domes in the ceiling. The room was clean, fairly big and modern. I found the bed comfortable and the bathroom was a good size. The location makes this hotel worth it. 1 block from China gate,... More

Ok, I am probably gonna be a little more on the critical side because of where I am from. I live in Houston, so we are used to heat and humidity outside and we LOVE our air conditioning...well, this hotel doesn't have any. Continuing on, the hotel is of decent conditions. The lobby was still under construction during our visit,... More

Grant Plaza Hotel is in a great location for exploring San Francisco. The room was very affordable and was clean and nice enough. The lobby was being renovated while we were there, but apart from that we got everything we expected from this budget stay. Although basic, for the price we would definitely stay here again.

The Grant Plaza Hotel is just up from the gates of Chinatown. Good location for Chinatown, a less than 10 minute walk to Little Italy and a less than 10 minute walk to the Financial district. The rooms are small and the floors are old and creaky. You can hear people walking on the floors around you and above you.... More

smallish hotel just now finishing renovation of lobby and rooms; clean, good maid service, but don't expect too much help from the night desk clerk with an attitude. right inside Chinatown, close to Union Square and Market Street transportation.

I found San Francisco accommodation expensive. As such, the Grant Plaza offers good value. It was a nice walking distance to the Warf and Downtown areas and there were plenty of food options in Chinatown, including a nice Japanese right across the road and Starbucks for breakfast at the end of the block.

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.
