We had stayed at this hotel over 20 years ago. They have updated some things. Different restaurant than our last stay. We did eat there one night & it was good. Beware on parking...you actually end up parking at Westin St Francis--which had to be pre-paid. The room was nice & good size. Looks like bathroom fixtures been updated. I would highly recommend you don't want to have a room right across from the elevator since some guests aren't quiet when they come in very early in the morning. The staff was great and helpful. I would consider staying again but would double check no big events as it was a nightmare on Sunday with the Pride parade in getting to our son's place.

Hello Sandra, thank you for taking the time to make a review of the Warwick San Francisco. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay while here in San Francisco. In relation to the hotel, yes parking is offsite. So we also recommend to all our guest who drive. They first stop by the hotel to offload their luggage, before parking their vehicle. Feel free to reach out to us anytime, if you have any questions or comments.

I booked and prepaid for a room at the Warwick via HotelTonight. I arrived at 1:40am and was told that no rooms were available. Somehow it took the front desk agent 20 minutes of tapping away on the computer to figure this out, even though he had just turned away another HT customer for the same reason. He didn't "walk" me to another hotel or even offer to call around. He told me to park in the hotel's loading zone and try asking for a room at the other hotels on the block. I got a room at Hotel G (which was excellent) and returned 15 minutes later to find an $84 parking ticket on my car. The front desk agent pointed out the street sweeping sign and had the nerve to say that it was my fault. If you want to experience the exact opposite of hospitality, the Warwick Hotel is for you.

I got this hotel confused with the Warwick NYC. This one is much worse, I will not go again. I’m not too picky, but the bed was lumpy and old, the shower was low, the glass dumpster in the alleyway emptied every morning before dawn woke me up even with earplugs. Oh, and the hallway smelled like smoke. It was a lot. The employees were lovely. A+ to them.

Lovely little hotel in a good location for shopping, food, and entertainment! We stayed in a suite with a large bed and two bathrooms! The two bathrooms were probably the most genius thing I’ve ever seen since it allowed me and my best friend to get ready without being on top of each other the whole time. The complimentary wine in the hotel bar was a plus but the Tapas restaurant was the crowning jewel of the stay! So delicious! We highly recommend the oysters and octopus!

We booked 4 nights here on the basis of the photos and website. BIG MISTAKE. We arrived at 11.30 and were greeted with ‘do you want to check in now it’s 50$’ rather than hello how are you! We politely declined and left our luggage and retuned at 3pm. We checked into our room and they took their full payment plus the huge security deposit which had never been mentioned before. We got to our Queen deluxe balcony room on floor 2 and it was disgusting! The carpets thought were stained, there were no doors between the ‘sitting room’ and the small bedroom. The wardrobe was extremely low quality chip wood and there were two small tvs . The balcony looked out on the signage in the road so you couldn’t look left at all and the next building along has scaffolding at the ale height as the room. My husband went to ask tot he moved and they could not accommodate this request. The staff were dismissive and uppity. So we left and booked into the Nikku Hotel one block away. We still have not received our refund of over 1000$ dollars even though they said they had processed it when we left, it’s now been two weeks. Total disgrace, please don’t make the mistake we did.

We were on a Californian road trip & at the start of our adventure we stayed 3 nights in a so-called top class, famous hotel in Nob Hill with another night booked for our last night before we flew home next day. Big mistake! The famous hotel which shall remain nameless was a total let-down & miles away from anything. So my trusty travel agent changed us to the Warwick instead for our last night. It's charming, clean with nice decor & we found the staff to be very friendly. The location is excellent, so close to Union Square, theatres & the cable cars AND it's on the flat - no mountain climbing! Yes the dreaded "resort charge" is a pain in the neck rip off but every US city hotel we've stayed in charges it so accept it or don't go. I would stay here again as we were very comfortable. Try David's Deli a couple of doors down for breakfast.

We were greeted by a doorman who opened the front door for us so we could lift our own heavy baggage up the stairs. Our room had a door hanger that explained their green initiative about skipping cleaning the towels and linen and being rewarded with a $10 daily credit to their restaurant or bar. Imagine our surprise when after our first night we discovered that that the program was no longer in effect and the door hanger was irrelevant. We were OK with keeping the towels, but asked for housekeeping for the next day and received it (making beds, restocking). However, we were not informed that we needed to repeat the request DAILY. One tiny bar of hotel hand soap was provided that I guess was meant for both hand washing and showering - for 2 people! I know we could have asked for more but it was astounding that we would even have to ask. Our bathroom sink was cracked and the repair was so poorly executed that it looked like spiders had spun a web. The front desk was not very helpful either. When we asked about a pamphlet listing TV channels , they suggested that we simply flip around. There was no guide book to San Francisco, or list of nearby attractions or restaurants. Room service from their restaurant starts around 11:30 - so don’t count on using them for breakfast. And don't forget to really look at their $31 daily resort fee! It's a total ripoff! Overall, we give this place a big thumbs down. There are better deals and nicer places to stay.

I wish the Warwick could get a higher rating but it was the little things and a couple somewhat bigger things that cause me to give it barely three stars. First the overall rating of the Warwick being a "Four Star Hotel", maybe at one point in it's existence but not as of today. To be a true "Four Star Hotel" you need to have amenities like parking, 24 hr maintenance staff...things the Warwick doesn't have. So it is at best a "Three Star Hotel". Parking I should mention this since they don't have their own parking facility. You can either pay I believe it's $45 to park at the Westin Vallet which is a long block away...this is a good deal, Westin guests pay $70 for the same valet. I decided to park my own car and used "Mason O'Ferrell Parking Garage" which is also about a block away. They have two prices for overnight hotel guests, $35 no in/out or $39 w/in/out. I paid the $35 because I wasn't planning on driving anywhere. The garage is clean and seemed secured as much as possible in downtown SF. As others have said don't leave ANYTHING visible, change in the cup holder, a bag of garbage, anything. I had no issues parking here. So I reserved a balcony suite and arrived for check-in. As I walk through the door the first thing the desk employee says is "DO you have a mask"?! Yes of course, just came from Southern California where they are not requiring them anymore. She doesn't say hello, just not a warm greeting. Proceeded to check in at the front desk and she was training a new employee, he was extremely nice and was learning the systems they use. I was then asked to initial and sign a form. On this form there was a $31 "destination fee" that wasn't mentioned during reserving the hotel. This $31 fee was for the following amenities: - Wine Reception - so you are paying for something you may not like??? - High speed internet - most hotels give for free these days. - 10% discount at their restaurant - again you may not use. - Unlimited local and domestic long distance...lol yep its the 1980s at this hotel, maybe that is when they were a "Four Star Hotel". - Copy and fax services...again 1980s and most hotels do this for free. - In room coffee and tea...again most hotels do for free. So be prepared for the "destination fee" when you arrive. The room: I was on the 5th floor queen balcony suite. The overall room was a decent size, had a small living room and bedroom separated by pocket doors. The bathroom as so many have already mentioned is very small but when they built this hotel that was the norm. The furniture was worn and looked like it had been there since the hotel opened. The bed has a metal base which was odd, the armoire was extremely poor quality and there were wood panels falling off the back of it. There were two very small TV's in each room and an old couch in the living room. There was an old fridge, good sized and worked well, and the coffee maker. Just FYI the little packets they provide with the coffee come with only 1 (one) small packet of sugar. Now it wasn't all bad, the balcony had a great view and was a good size, it needed to be repainted but was nice overall. The bed was comfy and the shower had decent water pressure. Now during the day it was in the upper 60's and quite nice, didn't need to use the heater. That evening I was getting a little cold so I went to turn on the heating system and it didn't turn on...some type of error code came up. I called the front desk and they said they would send someone up to check on it. Well about five minutes later I was called back by the front desk and told they don't have maintenance staff onsite at this time of day, around 7pm. So they offered me to move rooms, but they didn't have my current room available or they could send up a portable heater. I selected option two...a true sign of a "Four Star Hotel" is a portable heater in the bedroom. Did they offer a discount for the room or anything else, nope. In the morning at check out at the front desk. I told the employee at the desk what room I was checking out of and the employee looks over at the housekeeping person and tells them the room number, guessing so they know they can clean it...but of course a good morning would have been nice. She then asked how my stay was, I mentioned the heating issue, no apology and it felt like it was a common issue from how she had no response. Overall the stay was okay but not to the level they claim to be at...would I stay here again, probably not. Would I recommend, probably not.

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in! Terrible staff who don't work, they just sleep at work at 12 am at night! If you arrive at 12.01 most likely you will stay to sleep on the street! I highly DON'T recommend to stay IN WARWICK! it's a very dangerous area and they will just close the doors and you won't get inside the hotel even if you live there! This is nonsense! I stayed on the street and I had to look for a new hotel at 12 at night, although this one was paid!

The positive is that this hotel is close to Union Square and the cable car and makes walking easy. The staff was helpful and polite. The negative is that for the money you're not getting much. The rooms are sad and in need of some TLC. Carpet needed to be cleaned. Bathroom sink was cracked and had trickling water pressure. One small bar of soap for sink and shower both. The suite we got was very small. No fridge, no ice machines. I thought I was getting a good price and value. I paid what I thought was a fair price for three nights and that included all the taxes and fees, which were quite high. Only to have another $100 added at the end for "incidentals." More fees. Not a fair price at all for what I got. You can get a much nicer hotel with amenities for that price. I'd suggest looking at the Handlery, the Clift or The Westin. All in that neighborhood. And if you're on Geary Street ask for a room on a higher floor. Quite noisy (I get it, its a city, but wow was it loud.).
