My partner and I stayed at Phoenix 23-26 August 2014, at the beginning of our honeymoon. We chose this place on the basis that it was the first reasonably-priced hotel in San Francisco, ranked by TripAdvisor reviews. Arriving from the airport, we took a train to Civic Centre then walked 8 minutes to the hotel. Along the way, there were... More

Another great visit to SF. We had a couple of violins with us, and the staff was very helpful in keeping them safe. The room and beds were comfortable, and the courtyard outside our room was very pleasant (pool, magnolia trees, coffee in the morning). We look forward to our next stay.

This is the third or fourth time I have booked room at the Phoenix Hotel and let me tell you why: it is a slice of heaven. I wanted to stay there for my birthday and I think the Phoenix was why this year's celebration, pun intended, took the cake. The location looks strange at first, being in SF's seedier... More

I stayed here recently with a group of friends and I can't say enough good stuff about this place. The staff was AMAZING! So friendly and helpful -- I just wanted to hang out with them. The property itself was clean and inviting. I know that this hotel has been around a looooooonnnnnnnnnnng time, so I was surprised at how... More

Over our four day stay we met quite a few members of staff, all of which we're happy to help, provide maps and directions and suggest places to visit. Out room was very comfortable - large bed, desk area and a good sized bathroom. We didn't eat at the hotel as there were so many options in the city however... More

stayed at the Phoenix for three nights in early August and absolutely loved it. considering this hotel used to be a motor lodge, its beautifully updated with modern rock n roll inspired items. Chambers restaurant and bar was delicious, i highly recommend eating there!

I've just booked this place for a 3rd time and I'm sure it won't be my last. Cute rooms, very comfortable beds, centrally located, colorful neighborhood, and ahhhhhhmazing customer service. It's hard to not fall in love with the little details like hand-written welcome notes and a complimentary beverage. The wifi and docking stations are also a nice touch, as... More

The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, the pool area is gorgeous, and the hotel itself is a bohemian work of art. This is a rockstar hotel, for artists and poets. Hemingway would have stayed here. Kerouac would have stayed here. Yes, there is noise well into the night. This is not the Marriott. This is for connecting with other... More

LOCATION, HOSPITALITY and AMBIENCE are why I stay at The Phoenix 4 times a year when I visit from NYC. I prefer it over hotels in touristy areas downtown I stayed at in the past. LOCATION: The authenticity and diversity of the Tenderloin neighborhood is big plus for me. Centrally located, it's convenient for visiting Union Square and the Embarcadero... More

We came into the city to see an opera and chose the Phoenix due to its convenient location. The hotel is an oasis in the Tenderloin. Once you're behind the gates you feel a world away from the hustle and bustle. The front desk staff was very friendly and made us feel welcome. Our room was well-appointed except for the... More
