I travel to SF every year and Pwell Place is a home away from home. The rooms are comfortable and spacious especially for SF. Everything inside you have everything you need including kitchen. The location could not be better. 10 min walk to Union Square, Cable Cars, Fishermans Wharf, North Beach, etc. If you can stay here do it. You'll... More

I have been a owner here for about 8 yrs and have never been unhappy. The Staff is super and they treat you well. I never get bored coming to San Francisco. I do manage to find something new on each trip and i also manage to walk up to 5 to 12 miles per day......

Excellent location, three cable lines in same block. The staff always attentive and helpful. The suite featured an ample bedroom, living room with a couch-bed, a full equipped kitchen and a spacious terrace. I just reduced my review 1 point because the bathroom was located in the bedroom instead of the living room.

This was a wonderful location, right on the cable car route. We enjoyed two rooms just one flight up. Best to come by shuttle or taxi and not have to pay for nightly parking fees. There was a fresh flower in a vase in our room and chocolates every night after they turned down our bed. So close to Chinatown... More

This timeshare resort is an independent timeshare resort not affiliated with any of the big corporations. It does not have all the amenities that are offered by the big name places. However, Powell Place is very well maintained and well located in Nob Hill. Powell Place comprises of two apartment buildings that got converted to timeshare units. As mentioned in... More

If I could give this place 0 stars I would. I was given a room 4 floors up, no elevator so plan on traveling light. This was an attic room so there was no view through the locked windows save the one window that you could egress to a fire escape. Room was beyond hot and they offered no air... More

We are in our 60's and had to walk up 4 flights of stairs to our room - I guess that's because we were put up "on the poor side of town" and no elevator. San Francisco was going through a heat wave and no air conditioning. Also, the kitchenette really needs upgrading - appliances from the 1980's. One good... More

We have stayed at Powell Place several times. The superb and consistent superior performance by the professional staff makes each visit most pleasurable. The units are well maintained. The Nob Hill location is unmatched. The cable car lines are one half block away.

As others have said, this timeshare is in an excellent location. We lucked out and about three weeks before our trip, got notice from RCI that a 1 bedroom (2 max) was available. The timeshare sent us a letter beforehand explaining their very strict policy on the maximum, only the people on the reservation can stay, etc. When we got... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.
