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.

The balance of the good price, great location, and acceptable quality make this a place to return to. No, you won't be awed by the lobby or taking selfies at the entrance, but you will appreciate the GPH for a reliable base camp to venture out in San Fran. It's on the same block as the Dragon Gate. So you're... More

Location is excellent, right in Chinatown, walking distance to restaurants and souvenirs stores. Two blocks walking distance to Union Square. The hotel lobby is under renovation, and luckily no noise at night. Room look like been recently renovated. Cozy space in my twin beds room. Not many furniture in the room, one chair, small table (which also serve as a... More

Perfect location right in the centre of town. The reception was under construction but it really didn't affect us as the staff were very helpful. All rooms were basic but had just been renovated so were clean and tidy. For the price we paid it was a great deal.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights while we were in San Francisco. It is by far one of the more affordable hotels, but it should be classed as a Motel. The rooms and beds are very average. Their free wifi is so slow it's almost unusable and the electricity tripped 3 times. The bathroom is... More

Ok this is one of those places that really doesn't match website description. The Foyer is currently under renovation therefore resembles a construction site. I get that this has to happen but you should be made aware beforehand or at least compensated with a better rate. The onsite parking is 2 blocks away but about $28 a day so not... More

A scary place. The only good thing is that it IS well located, right in Chinatown but not only was the place full of plastic sheets because it was under construction--which was due to be finished a few weeks after our booking--but the room was like a women's prison. Two tiny twin beds, no dresser or closet to put your... More

No free coffee in the lobby while it's under construction. (None in the room.) The bed was on the firm-to-hard side. The bathroom looked brand spanking new with new fixtures and toilet (and was so clean you could do surgery in there.) My wake-up call never arrived. (Thank God I set my cellphone alarm.) The window in the room did... More

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

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.
