I was hesitant when my husband told me that he had booked the Pickwick for my surprise birthday trip to San Francisco in Sept 2012. As most of us do, I read many reviews on tripadvisor and the negatives ones made me pretty nervous as to what I going to get at The Pickwick, cleanliness,staff, etc. What I got when I arrived was a great surprise. First off, the location is awesome! As we were first timers in San Fran and did not rent a car in was very close to Powell St(Cable Cars/other Transportaion,tours), Union Square, Westfield Centre(Amazing shopping/food court),excellent restaurants(all in walking distance)and much more. The lobby is quite nice and the concierge(Eduardo) and front desk staff were awesome at recommending restaurants and things to do as well as being so friendly. We were upgraded to a corner room w/KS bed. This is where I got nervous as the reviews on the rooms themselves weren't great. In my case I should not always believe what I read. The bathroom was smaller and there was a big crack in the window(not a big deal)but it was great w/full bath tub and toiletries. The fixtures and decor were a bit old but the room was clean and comfortable. The room actually reminded me of a place I stayed in Florence, Italy...old school charm. If I had to pick something to critic it would have to be the wifi. It is free(yeah!) but didn't work so well in the corner room. My husband and I just went down to the mezzanine sat on the couches and relaxed where the wifi worked great. I was so happy with my 4 night stay at The PIckwick and would ABSOLUTELY stay there again. Don't let the negative reviews scare you off from The Pickwick.
