We were here for 6 nights during the SF ACS mtg. Our check-in was very smooth at the Hhonors desk and we got a west-facing room on the 25th floor. Very nice view. And the exterior windows were very clean! As Gold VIP Hhonors members, I think that we received a better room than the average person attending the ACS... More

Been in 5 different hotels on Union Square and this one is the best one. It's a big hotel with several towers, but the staff, the renewed rooms, the breakfast quality and of course the central location make me come back

I attended a convention in San Francisco in early August. Our stay was 4 nights. This apparently is the largest hotel in the area - it is quite large and impersonal. We had requested a smoking room in advance. I had tried to upgrade to a better room but was told there was only one option, the regular classic room.... More

First of all let me start off by telling a little about me. I travel the country looking at elevators, yes elevators, it is kinda different but it is more of an autism outreach. I myself have autism and I run the dieselducy channel on youtube. I was in San Francisco and a company was doing a documentary on me..... More

I stayed at this hotel for a conference and was very satisfied with the quality and cleanliness of the rooms and the very helpful service from the staff. It's in a good location right in the Union Square area and just steps from the Powell Street trolley line. The only downsides were the incredibly long hallways (took forever to get... More

Stayed here August 9-15 during the ACS/IUPAC meeting. Check in was super busy and there was no one on the honors desk so I joined a line of about 10 people. Room rate was $230 and breakfast was not included. The room was on 19th floor with no view The guy at check in tried to get me to upgrade... More

When I made the reservation, I noted it was our anniversary. We were treated to some great upgrades (probably thanks to my husband's Hilton Honors status too). We were given a remodeled room on one of the executive floors in Tower 1. We had a view of the Bay. We were also treated to breakfast in the restaurant. The room... More

The hotel was clean and the room service was excellent. House keeping was prompt and very good. The room I stayed in was a little too close to the pool so I could hear EVERY group that went by- but it was tolerable and since I was out of the room more often than it- I didn't mind too much.... More
