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

This is a great place to stay- great retro 50's vibe, reasonable rates--and the friendliest service ever. The rooms aren't luxurious, but they are comfortable and the decor is fun. Walking distance to the Orpheum Theater and shopping.

I found this hotel to be very convenient to just about anything San Francisco offers! It's a short walk to Muni streetcar & bus stops, as well as either the Powell or Civic Center BART/Muni stops. Hotel is an old motor lodge, very mod feel. No elevator, but it's only a two (2) story hotel It also offers a heated... More

This is a fairly decent hotel, nothing fancy but does have a lot of character. Rooms are clean and well maintained and the staff very helpful. Breakfast is lacking with just coffee and teas and a small selection of pastries and cakes on offer. The are of San Fran it is in is a bit dodgy with lots of junkies... More

We booked the Phoenix Hotel for a five night stay in San Francisco on the strength of its great ratings on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed: the staff are very friendly and efficient and the hotel has retained a nice 50's feel after a sensitive renovation. The immediate area is, as the locals say, a bit "sketchy", meaning down at... More
