The Grant Hotel

Reviewed November 20, 2013

I stayed at the Grant during an academic conference taking place nearby. As other reviewers say, location location location! No luxury here, but in a very safe and central location, and quite comfortable. No noise problems either. At the time I visited, (Nov 2007) parking was available in a garage right across the street and was reasonably priced (that may have changed). Warning for families: The Nob Hill Theater "Nude Male Review" is three doors down. I have no problem whatsoever with that myself, but if you don't want to explain to young children what that means, either don't let them scan the building signs too closely, or don't stay here!

Room Tip: As with all city hotel rooms, it's recommended to ask for a room nearer the back of the building...

Stayed 2 nights for only 200$ Clean and very cheap only a few blocks from Union Sq. The receptionist was so so but all in all it will be a return hotel for me. Free coffee but their breakfast offerings wasn't interesting to me.

The hotel is in an excellent location, very close to Union Square with a cable car stop at the end of the block. The rooms were very spacious and spotlessly clean. The facilities for breakfast in the hotel lobby were rather limited, but this was not a problem for us as there were a number of cafes close to the hotel where an excellent breakfast could be purchased at reasonable cost.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front of the hotel are quite noisy, as Bush. Street is busy, especially in the mornings...

Stayed here for four nights and had an enjoyable time. The room was very clean and the front desk staff was helpful. The neighborhood seemed safe, and it was close to many attractions. Breakfast was decent, with coffee and pastries.

The grant hotel was a very nice place. The staff was friendly (some more than others), the room was spacious (relative to the location). There was a cable car stop at the end of the block, which was very convenient going to the north (alcatraz, fisherman's wharf, ghirardelli sq. etc.) and to the south- civic center. Union sq. is a short walk away, and there are many different places to eat and drink right around the hotel. There is also a laundromat two buildings down which was good.
The breakfast wasn't all that much, just pastries and coffee without milk, but that was enough to get us started.
I would definitely stay here again, and would recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

Service means a lot. it is very poor here.

flaky internet. bad coffee and cold sweet rolls for breakfast, not fruit or cereal, or even bagel

the building is very tired as is the linen and plumbing

next to a "touch my Junk" low class club.

Stayed here for 4 nights end Aug/ start Sept. The Hotel is old but that should not put you off, the room was clean and bed comfortable. it's fairly basic but does the job , -- if you are in San Francisco you don't want to spend time in the hotel, there's so many better things to see and do.
This Hotel is in a very good location close to Union Square, Trolley stop at the corner and bus and metro close by at the bottom of the hill on Powell / Market street.. If you just want somewhere to sleep after a long day out sightseeing this hotel will do fine.
