4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The room was on the 9th floor, but only view was an interior courtyard. Room location was very quiet after Dirty Habits closed around 10 or 10:30PM. Nice linens, nice bath and, by central city standards, a fair size. Carpet in the room was worn a bit--it felt like it had been 5-7 years since the room/hall had been updated.... More

Our room was oriented to the yard and was very quite. Hotel staff is friendly. Breakfast is provided to all guests, I enjoyed yogurt each time - very... More

Ideal location for wandering about SF. Close to Union Square and a very pleasant saunter to the Ferry Building and all the other sights and establishments close to it. If you are a runner, this location is great because it is impossible to get lost running down to the boardwalk and turning left, and running back. Rooms are big and... More

We wanted to be close to ATT Park and were able to walk from hotel. Room was spacious and nicely decorated. No amenities such as coffee maker. Bathroom small. They have parking in basement for extra $50. Don't like this area of SF for walking around. Close to Bart and buses.

Pulled up to 4th Steet entrance (a wee bit hard to find but we made it) and my companion got out to go get a valet or bell person; short wait for valet but he was cool. Left the car in a clean, safe garage beneath the hotel for 24 hours. Bliss. Our room was big - two queen beds... More

We were in San Francisco for 10 days and booked at the Hotel Zelos at Market and 4th street. Location is perfect if you are taking the BART train from SFO airport (Powell st exit is 1 block away-easily walkable). Hotel is in shopping and edge of Financial district. If you are taking any tours, many tour pickups are either... More

The hotel was very nice. The lobby was small but the staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The room was nice but a little on the small side. All amenities of the room were very nice quality including the TV, clock radio, pillows, bedspread, and sheets. We had a 9th floor room with a view of Market street that was... More

I would say this is just an average hotel. Nothing special at all. Pros: Location, comfortable beds and coffee in the lobby in the morning. Cons: The walls are super thin. I could hear toilets flushing, kids crying, people coughing. I live in NYC so noise isn't an issue but it's just weird to hear people through walls. One day... More

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.
