Although this property is very close to the projects in San Fran, it is quite comfortable and provides enough staffing at the front to prevent being hassled for loose change or cigarettes whilst waiting outside.
The rooms are very noise proof, unlike the hilton on fishermans wharf (Which was terrible!) Anyone coming to SF and would like to stay in the hilton, the Union Square property is much better.
The check in process was great, it is one of the few properties in the world that i have visited that actually honours the Hilton Honours check in queue. Most properties have a sign for hilton honour guests displayed but everyone joins the same line and you just wait at the back like everyone else. When i checked in, there was a massive queue in the standard area and i managed to get a quick checkin and was provided a key promptly.
The concierge are friendly when approached but did not offer to assist with my luggage when i arrived.
The lobby has a in house Starbucks which is a huge bonus, they do charge slightly more but worth it to stay indoors and avoid having to go out in the cold for a coffee.
Room wise, i was given a 2 single bed type room on the 16th floor. As i mentioned earlier, it is very sound proof from the outside, but i did experience some noisy guests coming through the hallway. Not the hotels fault by any means, but i guess with a property this size, it would be hard to police noisy guests.
Like most American hotels, the mini bar is empty, but they do provide bottled water for diamond HH members and free internet which was surprisingly fast.
The quality of the beds and pillows were as expected for a hilton, although the bathrooms here seem smaller than what i've seen in other properties.
Room service here does not operate 24 hrs, they have menus with time blocks such as breakfast, lunch and dinner. The kitchen (and all room service) is not available from midnight.
I can't really fault this property, its clean, efficient, well located and staff are approachable.
The only feedback i can provide is that they should ask concierge to assist travellers with thier luggage at the door. other than that i'd rate this a 4 star.
