The best is the good vibes of the place. The spacious rooms with comfortable beds. Parties on Friday and Saturday. Chambers is the restaurant not to be missed, very good food and drinks. The heated pool. Completely friendly. Complementary Breakfast although "Booking" says otherwise. Clean, open 24 hs. Great location. 15 minutes walking takes you anywhere.

I must admit I was a bit nervous to stay in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco with my 79-year-old Mother. But the unique Phoenix Hotel, Chambers (the restaurant next door), free coffee and muffins every morning in the courtyard, and the friendliest staff ever, kept us there instead of moving to another hotel. It is a unique place and... More

This re-done mid century modern motel was a fun place to stay. It's in the middle of San Francisco in walking distance to Union Square, Van Ness, and the Civic Center with all its concert halls and museum. The Tenderloin has alot of people living on the street, but we didn’t have any problem walking around. If you have a... More

This place is outstanding. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The location has a number of really good restaurants and bars in the immediate vicinity and BART is only about 1/2 mile away. There is a restaurant and bar onsite, but I didn't get a chance to check it out this time... The staff were not only super friendly, but... More

Very welcoming front desk, excellent experience overall. This place is noisy, so bring your earplugs, but it is so unique it's worth it. They welcome you back by name at the end of a long day. The rooms have been updated and are very nice. Mid-century modern furniture, bathrooms are small but have everything you need and work well. I... More

We stayed overnight at the Phoenix so that we could attend a New Years Day party in the city. The hotel was perfect. Heated pool open till midnight, check-out at Noon, comfortable beds, food and bar on-site. You can't go wrong. The Phoenix will be our home base in the city going forward.

I've always wanted to stay at the Phoenix, so when my wife, 11-month old son, and I had a few free days in the Bay Area before New Years, we decided to stay for a couple of nights. It's an iconic "motor lodge" with a great rock and roll history. The staff couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. They... More
