No frills hotel but it fit all our needs. Stayed in the two double beds deluxe room on the 6th floor. For what I paid, room was spacious and clean with a tub and large counter space in bathroom. The beds, sheets and towels were all in good shape- not worn out like sometime seen in budget hotels. The best... More

This hotel is in a prime location in the heart of Chinatown, staffed with excellent customer service, helpful people. The room at first seemed super small but eventually felt cozy and homey. The bathroom was spacious and clean and the shower was excellent, good water pressure and plenty of hot water. I would definitely stay here again. Although be warned... More

Location of this property was good, however it was very tired and run down, for the price I'm sure you could find an equally good location. This is located in Grant St just in Chinatown and approx 5 mins from Union Square. Property is in definite need of a renovation. Rooms not over clean, beds small and old. bathrooms very... More

The Grant Plaza is certainly not the finest hotel we have stayed but it was perfect for this trip. Ours was a last minute whirlwind vacation to San Francisco. The hotel is in a PRIME location. We enjoy staying in downtown close to shops, galleries and CHINATOWN and this hotel is in Chinatown. It is also near wonderful asian restaurants... More

The nice thing of this hotel is just they have a nice and great location. Located in the Chinatown, and walking distance to main tourist attraction areas in San Francisco, such as Union Square, Fisherman's Wharf, and shopping district. Room was small. My room window was just next to the street and very low to the sidewalk on the street.... More

GP is a budget hotel that has a lot going for it—price, friendly staff and the biggest thing is its location: it’s in Chinatown, a block from a trolley car stop to the north, a block and a half from upscale shopping to the south, five blocks from the Bart. There’s parking nearby, there are restaurants (Chinese, French, Japanese), drugstores,... More

Great location in Chinatown. Very close to union square. On bus routes to fishermans wharf, 2 blocks from streetcars. Wifi was good and free. Rooms are small, but if you are like us, we only sleep in the room. Water pressure was good, no bathtub only shower. No where to really go for breakfast, only Starbucks 1 block away. For... More
