“Great location for access to Moscone Center and exploring SF”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Stayed at Hotel Fusion for 6 nights Late April-early May for mostly business but with a bit of site-seeing too. It is a nice clean hotel very close to Union Square, not far from the subway and just a 5 minute walk to Moscone West. The staff are efficient and friendly. Free WIFI access was a big plus. The continental breakfast is nice but quite ordinary. My room was roomy and comfortable. The bathroom was fine but only had a shower stall. Location was bit loud as my room was right on Ellis Street where revelers were partying until after 2AM several nights. I don't know if other rooms would have been more quiet. This was not a deal-breaker and I would not hesitate to stay again. Good value for the money

Room Tip: Ellis street was loud at night. I don't know if rooms facing other streets would have been more...

The hotel is very close to Union Square, the best location in SF. The room is nice and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is included. For parking, we had to pay extra $32,00.
It is a little bit expensive, but I think is because the location.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Fusion for 5 nights and were blown away at the location to shops and bigger department stores such as Macys, Bloomingdales and the massive Westfield Mall, as well as the excellent dining options that surrounded us. Hotel service was efficient and friendly. The room is cosy and the bathroom is tiny but I think that's expected for most hotels in downtown. The rooms can be a bit stuffy even with the fan on but I heard that most hotels in San Francisco don't need air-conditioning as the weather is usually cool. The breakfast is convenient if you are in a rush or want to save some $. Having free Wifi is a big plus. Overall, good value for money but you can't beat the location.

Room Tip: Choose a room above the 2nd floor as the nightclub next door could be a bit noisy.

it was my 4th time ! before we could always open the window, which was nice due to the smell of old room.. this time it wasnt possible anymore. we had booked a double room, which ended u being tiny. when we asked for a bigger room with a bigger bed, we had to pay for the upgrade, which was fine.
but that we had to pay for the upgrade upon check out, was a scandal, given the fact they either lost or stole my husbands pyjamas!!!!
breakfast is very basic and u have to eat it in your room, but i didnt mind. all is there.
location is great, next to union square!!
on the weekends it can be very noisy, as a cheap hotel and many youngsters come to party in town and stay at this hotel.

The hotel was basic, though comfortable and clean. Please note that not all rooms have air-conditioning. When discovered that my room did not feature air-conditioning, the front-desk staff member kindly offered to upgrade me to a more spacious room. Most of the staff were friendly and efficient. However, some were less efficient and helpful.

The hotel is excellent value and in a perfect location for a stay in San Francisco, but please ensure that your room has air-conditioning.

Room Tip: Ensure you have air-conditioning and a quiet room

This is an interesting hotel, which looks to have been some type of office building, but remodeled. It is small-ish so no big conference crowd here, but because of that, much more friendly and budget.
It is very serviceable, clean and of course, free internet is a plus.
I'd definitely stay again for quick visit to San Francisco.

When I travelled for business in Berkeley this was a good place to stay for business. The famous Market and Powell Street Car at the end of the block, restaurants, drugstores, clothing stores and subway all nearby. I was taking a mini-course at at a Berkely Computer Studio and commuted by rail back and forth each day.

They just outfitted all the rooms with AC units before I arrived. Truly San Fran weather is cool enough but the AC helps keep the humidity down. The place was the most affordable and most central that my business would pay for. The part is town is not bad, there are some street people in every large city - no one will pester you though they might ask for change. There is a guard at the door, you are very safe! There is a continental breakfast but I sprang for a sandwich on my own dime at McD's. The breakfast room is claustrophobic and packed with people, lots of friendly Aussies.

The drawbacks, I flew from the east coast, arrived by 11am local but they would not let me in the room until 3pm. I took a sightseeing tour and checked my luggage. I was beat by the end of the day.

People mention the noise from the club downstairs, I noticed it one night for like ten minutes but barely. Turn on the room fan on your AC and you won't hear a thing.

One pain in my back was having to lug my computer equipment and bookbag down the stairs every morning. They shut of the elevator from late night to each morning at some time but I wouldn't have minded it so much if I was there for vacay .... no, wait, It'd still peeve me. They don't put up signs so I kept thinking they were broken until a cleaning woman told me.

Room Tip: Choose a low floor, you might have to walk down stairs in the morning!
