My mom and I travelled to San Francisco for the first time on the Labour Day long weekend. We didn't want to have to spend +$250/night on a hotel, so I was thrilled when I came across the Hotel Mayflower. It is a great hotel at a great price! The hotel is old, built in the 1920s, but that just means it has so much character. It's got a great lobby area, and the old style elevators with the gates that pull across. There's a continental breakfast everyday, which has toast, muffins, scones, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, oatmeal, juice, coffee, teas, etc. We were there for 5 days and ate breakfast there everyday without getting bored of it. The rooms are quite spacious, and are all suites, so they have kitchettes which is nice to be able to have drinks and snacks if you like. They've got a little grocery store right next door which is convenient. The staff at the hotel are all quite nice and helpful. It's in a great location! So close to the cable car line, Union Square, good restaurants etc. We would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone going to San Fran, and will for sure go back ourselves.
