“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

From the moment we walked through the doors to the sad moment that we had to leave 5 days later, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Galleria Park hotel. Every person on staff was friendly, courteous and professional. We loved our room which was made up perfectly each day and VERY clean. It was a great location to get everywhere - the market, BART, and we even walked to see a Giants' game. We fell in love with San Francisco and the Galleria Park Hotel - can't wait to return to both!

Room Tip: Outside room if you don't mind street noise, inside room if you want it quieter

We stayed in this boutique hotel in July 2014. Centrally located for buses etc, loads of good places to eat close by (as hotel does not do food). Would recommend. Personal drawback was beds are quite soft, and give you a hug all night - making it very warm.

Close to everything with a friendly and helpful staff! Updated and clean room and bathroom - nice towels. Lovely rooftop area for morning coffee/exercise or perhaps a glass of wine. We selected this hotel based on numerous positive reviews - and they were right. Would definitely return and hope to do so! We even enjoyed the town car service which took us right to airport/airline. The driver was prompt and enjoyable - even at 5:00 in the a.m. For flat rate of $50 we felt it was well worth it.

Green Features: Options to conserve natural resources by reducing/eliminating housekeeping services were definitely available.

While the rooms may be a little outdated, the galleria delights.
The staff were soooo friendly and accommodating. There is free wine each night, a brilliant coffee shop right next door and a great location right near great shops and the cable car to take you to the waterfront.
Loved it!

I used TripAdvisor to help me as a first time visitor to SF, and the good reviews of the Galleria Park were spot-on. I love boutique hotels-the staffs usually try harder. This was certainly true of the Galleria Park. From directions to dining recommendations, everyone was caring, friendly, and
always had a smile on their face! As previously noted, the rooms are small but very we'll appointed. The elevators are efficient, so no long waits. The Galleria Park is located in a great area-2 blocks from Chinatown, 3 blocks from Union Square, an 2 blocks from Market Street.
Good restaurants are an easy walk, too. The complimentary wine happy hour from 5:30-6:30 was a great way to unwind after seeing the sights. I would certainly stay there again and highly recommend it.

We stayed here for 5 nights. The room was perfect. Everything had been nicely updated. The staff was extremely helpful. They recommended restaurants, helped with public transport and always greeted us with a smile. There was a wine reception in the lobby each night and coffee and tea in the morning (and in the room as well).

The hotel was in a great location. Within walking distance to many attractions, and very easy to access muni on market street.

Thank you for a great stay. I would definitely stay again.

Green Features: This hotel seems to actually follow through on the environmentally practices it promotes. We had the option of not having our room cleaned daily and to keep our linens. There was also drinking water available in the lobby.

This hotel has a very classy, old-style vibe. The staff, from valets to the front desk, were very friendly and professional. The bathroom in the room was on the small side, but this is what you would expect from a boutique hotel. The room itself was very clean and a good size with a comfortable bed. Wine hour and free wifi were a plus. The location cannot be beat, although because of this it can be a little noisy. Overall, I would recommend.

Conveniently located in the heart of San Francisco, Galleria Park gives you easy access to everything the Bay Area has to offer to its visitors.
