We were heading to Sebastopol for the weekend and decided to spend time in one of our favorite cities - San Francisco! My husband recommended the Phoenix Hotel. What a delightful visit! We arrived late - we were hungry and thirsty and both needs were quickly met. The service was impeccable at the hotel and in the restaurant. Don't expect... More

We felt like all the staff really wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay and had everything we needed. After entering our room, we noticed that the fan in the bathroom was not working and the repair guy came and fixed it immediately while we enjoyed a swim in their warm, inviting outdoor pool. The Phoenix exudes cool and... More

This is a classic vibey hotel - Loads of character and charm. The rooms are pretty noisy as there is no double glazing etc. The rooms are huge though and there is a very cool outdoor space with great pool etc. Coffee and muffins in the morning. Delicious! It's a little walk to the centre of everything and the neighbourhood... More

What a colorful, cheerful, down to earth oasis in the middle of the Tenderloin!! We stayed 8/2-8/8, room 23 (we recommend this ground floor corner cuz it seemed to be the furthest from noise and a not so busy section) and even contemplated staying one more night longer if the airfare switch wasn't so high that day! From the time... More

We had a really enjoyable 2 night stay at the Phoenix. Yes, not the best area, but we had no issues whatsoever. The members of staff were extremely friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. The room was very comfortable, the pool was good, warm and nice at the end of a busy day sightseeing. The general store across the... More

The Phoenix Hotel manages to accommodate the needs of both its guests and the locals who come for the ambiance of the restaurant/bar/courtyard. Outdoor activity associated with the restaurant stops at an appropriate hour so that guests can sleep. Chambers is a great restaurant and the staff is accustomed to people eating there before attending an opera or symphony. If... More

Staff was extremely welcoming in this little laid-back, very cool place. Rooms, especially bathrooms might need an upgrade but hey.... They are kept very tidy by the staff. Cool customers with fun mix of hipsters and families. Cannot subscribe to earlier comments about noise, bad neighborhood etc. we had a very good experience and will come back!

The front desk is amazing, the staff so helpful and friendly. And then you get to the pool and courtyard, and it's like time warping back to the 70's but the good part. The rooms are funky, fun and comfortable. If you are looking for a Courtyard or a Hampton Inn this is not the place for you, if you... More

Of all the 9 hotels we stayed in during our honeymoon tour of the West, this was our favourite. Yes, the neighbourhood is not great, and requires some skilful road crossing at certain times, but in terms of its proximity to key bus and tram routes, this hotel cannot be faulted. It's also fabulously retro, and furnished in such a... More
