Although it has been nestled near downtown San Francisco for decades, I just discovered the Pickwick while looking for a business stay while in the City. A classic City hotel, both exterior and interior, I enjoyed a very comfortable and restful time at the Pickwick. Located at 5th and Mission, it is just a short walk from the Powell/Market Bart station.
The staff was very courteous and professional - making sure that I was comfortable, yet they were not overly intrusive. The room was typical of older City hotels; relatively quaint and small, but with ample space for everthing that I brought. It was very clean, as was the bathroom. I always sleep with a window open and was bit concerned with potential street noise based upon previous reviews. Perhaps it was because my window faced east (not directly onto 5th or Mission), but I had a very restful night of sleep without any interruptions. Good tip for my next stay.
The on-site restaurant - Soma - was adequate. I had a simple selection of appetizers, nothing spectacular or too bad. However, do yourself a favor and sample the Speakeasy Ale. I am not necessarily a beer drinker, but this is a good local ale, with a hint of hops. Probably should have had some sourdough with it, in retrospect.
Location was great, but the best part of this stay was the economics of it all. A very good deal, considering all of the other nearby big name establishments and their big name prices. I will definitely book the Pickwick again.
