Just stayed at Hotel Mayflower for three nights over the Memorial Day weekend, and will be back again when I return to San Francisco. I paid just slightly over $90 a night for a single room including taxes and breakfast - unbeatable value for the city and its location. The hotel is a short five-min walk downhill to Union Square and the shops along Market St, within easy access of Chinatown, Pacific Heights (shopping and restaurants) and a few blocks from the cable car line that will take you to Fisherman's Wharf and the piers. The area around the hotel is mostly residential - there are a few interesting cafes and restaurants and there's a small store just next door (Mayflower Market) if you need to buy any essentials like bottled water etc.
Service was warm and friendly, I arrived just after noon but Nancy at the front desk checked me in even though I was there before the check-in time of 3pm. The room was clean and spacious - huge walk-in closet, small kitchenette with silverware if you get take-out, decent-sized bathroom. Yes the room does look a little dated but it was very clean, and I was used to it since I live in an old 1920s building back home!
Nancy was very helpful in giving me tips about public transport and where to avoid walking. The hotel is just north of the Tenderloin, and I was told to avoid passing through it on the way to Market St. The best way to return to the hotel is to take Powell St up before making a left on Bush. I travelled alone and I felt safe as a woman returning to the hotel every night.
The breakfast wasn't much to shout about, but it was good enough to get me started. There is no hot food - only scones, muffins, bread and boiled eggs. Still, can't complain with the rates!
Overall, would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat.
