Stayed here while in town for the super bowl, hotel is nice however the rooms are rather small. The rooms and the lobby are completely updated but like I said they are a little bit small. Great access to the city and to Chinatown. Walking distance to almost anything. Good hotel

Really enjoyed our stay here. Hotel room was disappointing on first glance as it was quite small and dark. The advantages of this room turned out to be quietness as we were away from the street and although small,there were these great shelving unit that allowed you to store loads of stuff compactly. another plus was that the windows in...

Trying to stay, somewhere cheap, in San Fran the week before the SuperBowl was a big ask. The Grant Plaza was a good price and pretty central in China town so we thought we would give it a try. The hotel is actually in a really good locatio... short stroll to Union Square and in China Town, we were pretty... More

Basic hotel at the top of the hill of Chinatown thus if you are coming by BART, be prepared to push or pull your luggage up the infamous slopes of San Francisco. Nice lobby, ok staff but the lift was/is (I am writing this while in the room now) on maintenance for the whole week from 6plus am to 3pm!... More

In San Francisco, it is very expensive to stay at a hotel. Even not-so-nice hotels cost a lot. This hotel is one in term of cost, location, staff, etc. It's very close to Drangon Gate in China Town. A room is clean and large enough if you use a hotel to just take shower and sleep. All staff members there... More

This is a great little hotel just inside the Chinatown Lions Gate entrance. An older building that has been cleverly renovated, this property is clean tidy and has quite a trendy decor. Service is friendly, efficient and overall excellent. Rooms by the road (mainly Pine St) can be a little noisy. Very clean rooms that are nicely furnished. This was... More

Grant Plaza, the good basic hotel on Pine and Grant, has a new coat. This is still the basic hotel that has served generations of budget travelers and my choice for 20 years. My small room had an excellent new bath and new paint. The new bed was hard as a board when I sat on it, but I slept... More

The Grant Plaza is in Chinatown, and is convenient to Union Square businesses and shopping. It is a good value at $120/night although the rate increased to $149 during my week stay. Pro: 1. Excellent, helpful, friendly staff; 2. Great location with plenty of shops, restaurants, if you like Chinese and Japanese food, this is your area; 3. Clean rooms... More

The hotel is so close to every prime location, bus stops and bart stations. Staff is very accomodating and assisted me well. The only downside is the musty smell of carpet in the room and hallway. It's ideal for solo travellers and no-fuss persons who are looking for a place to stay/sleep..

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
