Ok, so this was one below-average hotel. Granted, it's in downtown SF, and its very conveniently located (about 300 meters from Powell Street), but for 400 a night I expected slightly better service and amenities. For starters, this hotel is badly in need of repairs or even better will be a renovation!! Though the room is of a decent size,... More

Hotel was better than we expected. We booked a trip to San Fran at last minute so all hotels were very busy and expensive. We knew we would be out all day doing the tourist things so just wanted a convenient base. Hotel was great. Close to Union Square and clean. Staff were helpful too. The only negative I can... More

For the price the room was very nice, tea coffee making facilities, decent sized room, friendly staff and easy access to everything. Only flag was it was very noisy with road traffic, sirens and people in the street easily heard during the night but I suspect that is normal for the area. Enjoyable stay

Stayed here a couple of weeks ago over SF Pride weekend. This was a great location near BART, Shopping, and attractions in SF like Union Square and the cable cars. The rooms are fine, but the elevators are small are a little dysfunctional. However, I would stay here again!

This place is just in such an ideal location, could not have wished for better. Drove into the city, a couple of turns and we were there...unreal. Parking is better next door at a multi story car park and cheaper than on site, literally over the road. Hotel staff and rooms were great, fridge, tea/coffee, wifi, tv.. Really fab. Stayed... More

Tiffany made our stay so much better. It was our first time visiting the Bay Area and she basically planned our trip! All the places she recommended were amazing! The hotel is in a great location and we had no trouble getting around. I will be staying here again next time

We got a great deal on this hotel. It was very close to all the action (about 5-10 drive to Fishermans Wharf depending on traffic) and it was updated to today's standards. The TV in the room could be updated and they could add better cable selections. One of the things I really like about this location is how close... More

Stayed in San Francisco for a couple weeks for business. I moved to this hotel after staying in two extremely terrible hotels not too far from here. The tiny bit extra paid to stay here was worth it. The location is perfect. The facilities were good. Rooms size was perfect. For the price, this is what I expect. Great choice!

A friendly staff member named Tiffany helped me choose a great spot to eat dinner for mine and my wifes 8 year anniversary. She also later remembered me and addressed me by name, I felt wicked important! Hands down to the Pickwick hotel and Tiffany I was not expecting this treatment.

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
