We stayed as a group of business travelers in this hotel for a week. I can honestly say I have never experienced such rude service. It is difficult to know where to begin. We all had breakfast vouchers as breakfast was included. I always like to have coffee in the morning but I don't eat breakfast. I explained this on... More

For San Francisco this hotel meets the requirements for staying close enough to Mission Bay to get an Uber there in 10 - 15 minutes. There are not a lot of frills and the hotel restaurant is only fair. The neighborhood was not the greatest for walking out and finding a great place for dinner which is possible in other... More

the hotel was clean and nice. the breakfast was tasty but maybe a little expensive. the area around the hotel was not very nice and it did not feel very safe to walk around there at night. although it was close to union square and a lot of shopping. right by market street. I wouldn't stay there again because there... More

This hotel is close to downtown, the Civic Center, and the Moscone Center. It is also close to some seedy places nearby. It is secure and once inside, you don't feel any problems. The rooms are older, but well maintained and have nice appointments worthy of San Francisco. The nice part was so much is within walking distance or a... More

My husband and I spent a weekend (2 nights) here in the month of May. This hotel certainly has some positive aspects: the staff is very helpful, the rooms are spacious and the lobby is modern and nice. On the other side, the biggest downside to this hotel for us was the location. Upon check-in we were already warned not... More

Despite the great staff, this older hotel really needs refurbishment. Although the beds were comfortable, the decor is plain. The carpets seem old. I stayed here only because my employer required a rate under $220; you get what you pay for. The lobby, dining area & bar had been well-updated. Lots of vagrants nearby, but that seems true of San...

First, let me say that you do not need a car in San Francisco. There are plenty of public transportation options to get anywhere you want to go. Second, if you bring a car into San Francisco and park it at this hotel, it will cost you about $40 a day! It is cheaper to drive to SFO or OAK... More

Wanted hotel close to Bill Graham Civic Center for concert, this was two blocks away so served its purpose but this isn't the sight seeing part of town. Around the block we stumbled upon needles in arms of passed out users, crack pipes on street, methadone clinic, bum fights. I am from NY so I tend to have street sense... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
