I love this hotel for all the wrong reasons but enjoy it for all the right ones. The Phoenix isn’t in the best part of town but is just a short walk to Union Square, Mission district and Nob to name a few and offers parking at no additional cost. I don’t feel uncomfortable in the neighborhood but I can... More

The Phoenix Hotel is a joy. Yes, the neighborhood is a little funky, but if you like amazing Vietnamese and Thai food this is the best block in town. The hotel staff is super friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is completely unique. I've stayed here many times. It's convenient to the regular convention locations, but a completely different and... More

I stayed here many times in my former life in the music industry. They can park a tour bus with trailer and or a van and trailer. The neighborhood is what you can call "funky". The room are drafty and can be cold in the winter. This was always a fun place to stay. It may not be the best... More

We were married in November 2014 and stayed at the Phoenix for three nights over the wedding weekend. I cannot speak highly enough about the staff and accommodations at the Phoenix, from the time we made our reservation, until we picked up the items we left a week after our stay! Luke, Orlando and the rest of the staff were... More

I live in San Francisco, but sometimes want to getaway. I host poker parties here on occasion . The staff here is great.The rooms are clean . The lounge and food are really good. Free parking is a plus. The neighborhood is a little sketchy ,but pool and courtyard are secure. Looking foward to my next stay.

As always, an amazing stay at the Phoenix! Lovely, attentive staff and a funky fun atmosphere, what's not to love. Rooms were clean and well appointed. My go to hotel, and the only hotel I will stay at when visiting SF.

Our travel agent booked this boutique motel for us at my request as I wanted a reasonably priced motel. The Only saving grace before we checked in were the great reviews on Trip Advisor. The Phoenix is in the Tenderloin district and not the most attractive area in San Francisco. That said,once you enter the lobby, you've been transported to... More

The Phoenix Hotel is a great anti-corporate place. You get all the proper treatment but in a more relaxed manner. The rooms are spacious and have everything you need. There is a courtyard with a pool in the middle where you may lounge around like you are in your own backyard. If you like the night scene, the bar rocks.... More

The general area is convenient although the neighborhood itself is rife with homeless people; perhaps this is true of a lot of areas in San Francisco though. The hotel has a very rock-n-roll vibe and the staff is most excellent and helpful. Loved the atmosphere! The rooms were fine but ours smelled like lysol both nights we stayed there. Guess... More
