“Good Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I love the location of this hotel. Just a few steps from chinatown and union square, lots of shops and groceries in the vicinity. Rooms are a little small but its clean and nice. They have coffee/tea making facilities and microwave inside the room. Free coffee and tea all day at the lobby. Parking is a big problem since its located in the city center but the hotel do offer valet parking at around 30 us dollars. Staff are courteous and friendly. Overall, i like this hotel

Had 5 days here and enjoyed ourselves in San Francisco. The location here was the highlight - 1 block to Chinatown, 1 block to Cable Car, short walk to Union Square, Macys, a range of dining options etc. For an Aussie, the rooms were small but this is an old Hotel and as several have noted much bigher than some rooms in Europe I have stayed in. We had a 1 Br unit with separate eating area/lounge etc. Basic supplies for crockery and cutelry etc., microwave, coffee maker, small fridge etc. We combined eating home and out and it worked fine. Lori's Diner was a great experience. Our room did not face the street so it was quiet. Staff were generally very helpful and friendly. It is great to have a washing machine/dryer when travelling and there was a small gym as well. Recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room, not on the street

My husband and I just came back from a stay here and I couldn't have asked for more! The location was great since it was close to public transportaion that got us to anyplace our heart desired. We stayed in a one bedroom and it was the perfect size for us. The staff was amazing and helpful. Our flight didn't leave till after check out and when our cell phones died the front desk staff was too happy to charge it for us while we walked around the city. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was big enough for the both of us to get ready at the same time. We were on the 8th floor so we didn't hear too much noise from the city into our room. The only downfall is that the bathroom didn't have a fan vent but that won't stop us from visiting this property again. I'm very particular on where I stay when I am away from home and this place was just AMAZING!!!

Room Tip: Try and get a high floored room, that may have been the reason why we didn't notice the city noi...

This hotel is possibly the best we've ever stayed in! The concierge and reception staff couldn't have been more helpful! They were so helpful we bought them bottles of wine - they were great with restaurants, valet parking, things to do, places to go and things to see! They were like built in travel agents!

We will DEFINITELY go back and stay here...

The room was awesome - top floor - very private, secluded and 'boutique'... It was large and spacious - no view - but honestly - in San Francisco who has time to sit in their hotel room?????

Loved it! Highly recommend it!

Room Tip: Get the very top floor - you have to walk up a flight or two of stairs once you hit the top in the l...

It is in a very central location. One block from union square and Chinatown. A very frequent bus #30 that goes to Fisherman Wharf. Cable car is one block away (but don't plan to get on there unless you are boarding before 8am). Staff is friendly and helpful. Furniture and decor are quite up to date. The only thing is that it is fairly noisy, being in a corner of busy streets and right across from a bar. Good thing they provide ear plugs.

I saw some reviews and said the units are small. Indeed they are but better than I expected. Tried staying at hotels in Paris, Tokyo and Hong Kong then you would think this is spacious.

Room Tip: Two sides are facing the streets and they would be noiser than the side that doesn't.

Stayed here with my boyfriend 1-4 July. Overall the location was great, just a short walk to Union Square and further along to Westfield for those who like to shop. My first impression of our room was how TINY it was, but understandable considering the size of the building. It was very cost and everything we needed was there (apart for laundry needs, but there's a laundromat just across the road). Had a bit of an issue with the TV during our second night, but a lovely gentleman from the front desk came up to our room and fixed it on the spot.

Pros: good location, generally quiet at night, friendly staff, clean room

Cons: small room, wouldn't recommend for a long stay, only one elevator which creates traffic in the lobby (luckily our room was on the third floor, we'd take the stairs a lot of the time)

I'd recommend this hotel for anyone who's stopping by for a few days. Make use of the information and coupons in the lobby! We'd often order in pizza which was free delivery. Also, try Roxanne's cafe just up the street, we had breakfast there twice (opens at 6am) and the hotel provided us with 15% coupons :)

Worldmark San Francisco ~ it was a very small Worldmark at the end of Chinatown. We only stayed one night on our way to Worldmark - Angels Camp, CA. We arrived on a Monday around 12:30 pm, our room wasn't ready yet. The resort offered to hold our bags for us while our room was being cleaned. We walked to the wharf from Bush Street, it wasn't a bad walk and was able to see what was available to us. It was fun looking around in Chinatown, shopping @ union square and Fisherman's Wharf. We got back to the hotel @ 4PM check-in, we took the hotel up on the valet for $35 per night - this allowed us to check car in and out with one fee. Our room was on the ninth floor...we loaded the bags on the cart and started up the elevator to our surprise, the elevator only went up to the 8th floor. We hand carried all of our stuff up a flight of stairs. We booked a studio room, not sure if they offered anything different but we figured we were only staying one night. The room was small, but very clean and decorated nicely for an old building. Our view was the roof tops of some other buildings. The bed was a little hard for my preference. This room included a microwave, small refrigerator, and utensils/glasses. The TV was a wall mount and had a DVD player. This location doesn’t have a pool or spa area either. I did see that they offered a small work-out room. We got a late start on going out to for dinner and decided to stay close by. We ended up going down the street a few blocks on Bush, and most of the restaurants have already closed (by 8:00pm). We found a lil pub called, Irish Bank and figured we didn’t have much choice. The food was very average nothing great. Breakfast we ate @ Roxanne Cafe ~ Corner of Powell and Bush ~ food was good and offered a discount for Worldmark!
