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.

First time in SF and Pickwick hotel. Location of the hotel is perfect because the Westfield mall is just 5 minutes away by feet. The room is quite clean but too small. The bellboy, Ed De Guzman, is extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.

We enjoyed the Pickwick as a fresh alternative to the cookie cutter chain hotels we sometimes stay at due to work. The staff are great and happy to help if you need transportation or tours and were nice enough to give us and upgrade to a great corner room overlooking the hills and the Old US Mint building.

Pickwick is an older hotel but located close to cable car,and bus terminal. The main restaurant had 3 meals 7 days a week. The second restaurant down the street serves breakfast and lunch. Then there is a bar and Sushi cafe.

I had a wonderful time at the Pickwick while visiting friends this past weekend. The rooms are cute with a nice mini fridge and the TVs have HBO which is a plus. Daniel at the front desk was able to move us away from the elevator which saved the day! The tablets were also a great addition, very unique. I... More

I stayed here on a short business trip to SF. Not impressed. The hotel had a generally shabby look and did not feel well kept or maintained. Room felt dirty and bed was creaky and uncomfortable. Would not recommend. On the plus side the location is very central. Some nice restaurants and coffee shops in close proximity.

This hotel is on the corner of 5th and Mission, in the heart of San Francisco. We stayed there to watch a Giants game. Initially, we expected much less, but we were pleasantly surprised. This hotel is very nice, completely remodeled rooms. The rooms are the perfect size for relaxing, and came with very comfortable linens and beds. The staff... More

Our stay for our conference went super smooth thanks to the Pickwick staff.Daniel at the front desk was nice enough to give us an upgrade from a standard room to the 8th floor which was a plus. The rooms are on the smaller side but clean and the location can not be beat.

Love the comfy beds, though the entrance into the room was a little tight with luggage.The tablets in place of an alarm clock are a nice touch wifi connections on my own devices were not always accessible.

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.
