Touchstone Hotel San Francisco:
Noisy hotel location, front desk wasn't very helpful, didn't even ask us how our stay was. Comfortable bedding. A pokey room you could barely move. Noisy mentally ill homeless people screaming all hours of the night outside the hotel made it...More
San Francisco is a place that I frequently visit for a day for work and must say it's lovely every time I am here. I get done with work by 5:30 pm and need to kill time post that before I fly early next morning...More
Friendly, clean and very central. The room
Was very small, but for 2 night totally ok. The hotel is at the union square, very centrally. You can save a lot of taxi money :-) we got an 20% off coupon for the breakfast restaurant next...More
Never stay here. Cleaners stole our money during room service cleaning. When I angrily confronted them about it they admitted to taking it and gave it back. We were lucky but he next person might not be so fortunate. Don't risk it folks.
The Hotel is in a perfect location. Right around the corner from Union Square (if shopping is your thing you will find there everything you might need). The room was on the smaller side with an unnecessarily big bathroom but it was clean and the...More

Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theaters in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and
sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.

Yes definitely ditch the car. A friend of mine got her car towed and San Fran has the highest fine in the US i was shocked! She had to pay $550 (yes $550!) to get her car out, they don't even offer a payment plan-nothing. No mercy. The signage too was placed lower on the post (knee length, so when passenger opened the car door, the door blocked the sign so thats how she missed it.
Anyways, no car is necessary, BART is highly efficient. Use LYFT/Uber if needed. For me I signed up for Lyft right before my trip (watch out for deals) and got $50 credit split into 10 rides which was VERY useful.
If you need a car for long distance travel to the woods or yosemite or anythin, just rent if for those planned days. Its quite affordable at $40+ a day.
They do have airport shuttle. Powell is the nearest but it's a few blocks away from the hotel and the walk is an upwards slope. As for how to get there, walk towards the cable tram stop (opposite to Westfield mall), turn... More
They do have airport shuttle. Powell is the nearest but it's a few blocks away from the hotel and the walk is an upwards slope. As for how to get there, walk towards the cable tram stop (opposite to Westfield mall), turn left towards Union Square, then turn left again and go straight. The hotel will be on your right after you walk past Jack in the Box and Starbucks.
