Recently visited the Hilton in Union Square in San Fran on a trip with some friends (mid twenties) - a bit pricey, but we are hilton diamond status members so they bumped us up to a sweet complimentary! The tram picks up right by the hotel, and you can ride it basically anywhere in the city for a very reasonable... More

I came to stay here on a business trip as a solo female traveler. The hotel felt safe, and my room was pretty clean. I had asked for a late check-in, room on a higher floor and to the back/inner courtyard, hypoallergenic room without feathers/downs - the hotel met all my requests. I was given a Queen room on the...

Have stayed here every time we come to San Francisco. Great location right on Powell Street. For us it is the perfect location. Right outside you can hop on the cable car to head to Fisherman's Wharf. We are in the Perks Program. They always upgrade our room at no charge. We like to stay on the side of the... More

Staff was very accommodating, was able to upgrade upon arrival, great location and very spacious rooms! Wine hour from 5-6 pm (complimentary) w/ live music. Leynen (if mispelled my apologies) gave great customer service and made myself and my girlfriend feel very welcome as well as looking forward to our stay.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 days in October 2014. Reading all the reviews about this hotel, it looks fantastic..yes, maybe, those are the reviews for suites, not the regular rooms. We were on business trip and a very needed desk did not exist in the ity-bity tiny room, because there was not enough space for it. The view... More

I love this hotel! The staff were very friendly and the concierge were amazing in advising us where to go and where not to go (for safety reasons). This is a boutique hotel and has been tastefully done up. Our room was a massive suite so there was plenty of room however I don't think our room was quite level... More

I can not speak to highly of this hotel. I stayed for 5 nights and the staff were more than helpful in every respect. My room was just as I expected in a city centre hotel. The location is great for all public transport very close to Powell Station for BART from the airport and the cable cars go right... More

I stayed here November 2014. We upgraded to the kids suite minus kids staying with us and loved it!!!! The suite is a corner room (all the suites are) that looks out Powell and Ellis Streets. The kids room has a king bed with a daybed (plus another bed pulls out underneath), TV plus another TV for the WII game... More

My husband and I stayed here for NYE and loved it! We stayed in suite #630 which has a large living room with wet bar, short staircase leading up to the bedroom and bathroom, there was even a small study and an outside patio. The location was central to Union Square in a bustling area which we enjoyed. The service... More

Nice hotel and a great location, centrally located in San Francisco. We stayed here for two nights and while the room was small, it was inexpensive and was a great jumping point to neighborhoods all over the city. I would stay here again.
