We stayed at the Renaissance Stanford Court for three nights in September 2004. The service was excellent and the staff members were all helpful and friendly. We loved the location, close to public transportation and also close enough to walk to several attractions. Our room was very comfortable, quiet and peaceful and we loved the little luxuries of turndown service and morning tea delivered to our door.
On our next visit to San Francisco, we will definitely stay here again!

I stayed 3 nights in a fantastic room overlooking California street. The service was great! The staff was very pleasant. Considering that the posted room rate was $250 a night, I am shocked to read some of the comments other writers has left especially considering they paid around $80. Parking in the city is expensive at ALL hotels. I cannot believe some complained about it when their room was so highly discounted. I really enjoyed that the valet would have my rental car ready at a moments call. But with two criss-crossing cable car lines just outside the hotel door it was seldom used. It was nice to come back after sight seeing to find the beds turned down and a robe layed out. Such nice little touches that I didn't recieve when staying at other more expensive hotel. I suggest you give them a try.

I was worried about the type of room and service we would receive as we booked the hotel through Priceline for 48 GBP per night and previous reviewers expressed that staff at the hotel weren't very nice if you went through priceline; but I was pleasantly surprised. We stayed from Jan 5th to Jan 7th. The staff at the desk were very nice and not snobbish at all, and we had a good room, perhaps not what everyone would expect form a four star hotel but it had all the amenities we needed, it was clean, and a good size. I would recommend staying there, it's also in a great location.

First the good, we arrived without a stroller for my younger child. When we asked where to purchase one the front dest person told us they have them to loan in the hotel. We used it for entire stay. The coffee service was wonderful, even the day i forgot to order I called down and within minutes we had our beverages. My son loves getting hot coco (something that dosent happen to often at home).
Next the bad, though my room was clean twice a day, with two little ones you need it. After a few days our robes and shampoo's were not replaced so we had to call down for more. This did happen more than once.
The hotel has a great Sleigh in the lobby during the holiday season. Though i feel overcharged for parking ($41 per night) our car was always out front and ready to go when we called. Just in case you were wondering there is nowhere else to park in the area, this area is all hotels.
For the area NOB Hill we got a great deal on priceline of about $80 per night. Just wish we could have bid on the parking.
Overall, Thanks for the great stay.

Just returned from a 6 night stay and our verdict is that this is an excellent hotel. The wakeup call with complimentary tea/coffee was brilliant and always ontime. Our room on the 6th floor, overlooking the inner courtyard roof, was clean and well furnished. The bed was very comfortable and the room quiet. As others have said the location is perfect, at the crossroads of the cablecar lines and a short (steep) walk downhill to union square. There is also a complimentary town car service ( excellent ) for short journeys. All the staff were friendly and helpful, the lounge was fine and the food very good. We would have no hesitation in staying at this hotel again.

With all the hype that this hotel is given, I was disappointed with the quality of the hotel room. The lobby, location and staff were top-notch, however the rooms themselves were depressing and that's what really matters. Their heated towel racks didnt' do much but I will say that their morning complimentary beverage delivery was great.

Booked through priceline. $76 a night. Got the most horrible room, with a mattress you could feel the springs through. Room was a relic of the seventies, I doubt they even washed the bedspread since then. It was very tacky and looked like a motel 6 room.
We were told we could upgrade to a deluxe room for $50!! Insane!
Not only that but the front desk was very rude about us booking through Priceline, very snotty and said - you booked through Priceline- that's what you get.

Horrible Horrible. Never again!

One of the WORST hotels I have ever stayed in, that includes all other 4 star hotels I booked through Priceline in the past in NY, Paris, LA and SF.
