We again visited this hotel for our anniversary. We were greeted in the same fantastic manner as before. The bellman remembered us as did some of the staff. We skipped last year as the Americas Cup was in SF and we didn't want to get hammered with higher prices as all the hotels were raising their rates for the event.... More

A delight of a hotel. We arrived one hour after check-in and our room was not ready. What did they do? They upgraded our room and offered my wife and ME a complimentary lunch, now that is top notch service in my book. The rooms are lovely and so too is the food. The concierge is extremely knowledgeable and helpful.... More

I have stayed at Mandarin Hotels in London, Miami, New York, Boston and Las Vegas. This property has nothing to do with the other one I have visited. This is an old building with a Mandarin Flag. The rooms have nothing to do with Manadarin standard. The restaurant is cafeteria type of place. If you are traveling on vacation please... More

The Mandarin Oriental San Francisco is a lovely hotel. My daughter and I recently stayed for four nights and loved every moment. Our room was a delight and had beautiful views of the Bay Bridge. The staff was beyond helpful. The doormen even remembered your name. Absolutely the best hotel we stayed in on our 30 day trip. Forget the... More

First, I'll never give 5 stars to a hotel that charges hundreds of dollars for a room, and then tacks on an internet charge. Nonetheless, I would only go 4 stars based on other factors, but a solid 4. Priced as 5-star, so I'm comparing to that. We visit San Francisco regularly on business, but on vacation we decided to...

Had a great time in San Francisco made greater by our stay at the Mandarin. The room was spacious, clean, and had a wonderful view, especially at night with the whole city lit up. The service was top notch, and the actual location of the property was pretty quiet for being in the heart of everything with all the noise... More

The Mandarin is a beautiful hotel with large, comfortable rooms and an excellent health club. Service was good, though not great: Our check in was unduly delayed, but I think that is not a typical experience. The location is good: Sansome is a relatively quiet street, but the hotel is within easy walking distance of many attractions.The quality of the... More

When we arrived our room was not ready, so the gave us a free drink in the lounge and sent tea to the room. We have a corner Golden Gate Room. The view is to die for. There are many great restaurants near by. This is a first class hotel with all of the amenities.

We stay here once or twice a year usually just overnight after landing at SFO. This hotel has panoramic views of the city no matter which side you face, although we prefer the Golden Gate side. The hotel underwent a renovation 2 years ago which is tasteful if a bit boring. Check in and Greeting is always efficient and friendly.... More

Nice hotel if you need to stay in downtown San Fran. Nothing out of the ordinary for a 5 star hotel. That being said, if your use to places like the Waldorf Astoria, u might be a little disappointed. We thought the room size was a little small ---- my wife and I had a suite. If we need to... More
