we have stayed at this hotel numerous times , due to the fact that its always the best price in frisco no matter what time of year you go, sometimes when the website says its booked full you need to call directly because they will usually have rooms , and the location is right in the middle of Chinatown, so...

The rooms have all you need. Comfortable beds and warm shower. Excellent service. Warm Coffee in reception before 9:30. You can buy a bottle of water for $1 which is a good price here. Only a short walk from Union square where you can catch all the sightseeing busses. I would definately use this hotell next time I visit SF.

I was on my business trip couple of days before switching to another hotel where my conference was held. The Grant plaza was clean. I get the inner room both times and was quite, no AC sounds. Single bed room with clean bathroom. Shower pressure - excellent! Free coffee and tee in the morning. Ice buckets incl. Free maps and... More

If you need a no frills base in San Fran, this is it! It's located near the entrance to Chinatown. It's about 5 mins to Union Square that has so much great shopping. About 10 mins to North Beach which is full of lovely Italian restaurants, and about 15-20 on from North Beach is Fisherman's Wharf. The hotel itself is... More

I stayed here for a few days in the first week of July. The lobby smells like boiled cabbage. The staff member on check in didnt say much, not even a "Welcome to the hotel".The lift is very old and jumpy. You have to get the lift up to your rooms as the stairs are for going down only. I... More

Location was good, but unfortunately it did not outweight that my room was old and dirty, with mould and bad ventilation. I would say it is bad quality for the price paid, so even though it is relatively inexpensive I will not stay here another time.

We recently stayed at this hotel for two nights. Great location, very quiet. The staff were always very helpful and pleasant.The room was small but only really there to sleep. The only negative is that it didnt have a coffee maker or fridge.

We stayed here for 3 nights and being our first time in San Fran, a good location was a priority for us. Grant Plaza turned out to be a perfect fit!! It is located right in the heart of China town, really close (walking distance) to Union Square and transport, if you did want to venture further out and was... More

but: although I had reserved 3 nights, and that on my credit card and 4 weeks before my stay, they dumped me in room 507, which is so mold-ridden that I almost choked during the night. Wall-to-wall carpeting can cover up a lot of things, but not the fact that some investment is needed for this house! The staff are... More

As everyone probably knows, San Francisco is a very expensive place to visit. However this small hotel, at the corner of Grant and Pine, is a quiet, comfortable, clean place to stay. The rooms are small and there are few frills, but the location is highly desirable as the Italian restaurants of North Beach are an easy 10 minute walk.... More
