“Consistent comfort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

I stay at the Galleria Park Hotel about 8-10 nights a month for business. They consistently go above and beyond to provide the comforts of home. The location is ideal for business in the financial district and is close to some of the best restaurants in China Town, North Beach, Union Square, etc. If you are a Joy of Life member they treat you like family, even if you don't frequent this location it's worth joining. The staff is some of the best in the business, from the friendly smiles at the front desk, to the hard work of the sales and reservations team behind the scenes.

Very minor issues: the in-house fitness center is a bit small and underwhelming, expanding to two rooms instead of one would make a big difference. The restaurant situation seems to be improving, with a new on-site restaurant opening soon. They have been through about three different restaurants in the same number of years, so lets hope the latest one sticks around for awhile.

Whether on business or personal travel, I'd suggest giving the Galleria a try, you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Ask for a outside, corner room is available.

Stayed here for New Year during a quick 2 day visit to San Fancisco with the trouble and strife. Hotel itself was great with friendly and informative staff, a great location, and free wine to get us started for an evening of celebrations.

Was fantasic value for money in a great location and would stay here again.

So thoroughly thrilled that we did NOT select the Fisherman's Wharf area for our lodging because the Galleria Park hotel is in the BEST location hands down. We are a family of three (includes an 8 year old) and we felt instantly "at home" at this hotel, finding it to be intimate, historic yet modern, comfortable and exceptionally convenient. This is not a cookie cutter property. Yes it has old world quirky character including some amazing marble stairways but it has been retrofitted and artfully designed to meet current day needs. Best part - it is walking distance to Union Square, Chinatown, and steps from ALL public transportation. We were not bothered by noise even though this was Black Friday weekend and our corner room faced Kearny & Sutter. Perfect because the view was classic!! Oh and this was our FIRST San Fran trip. We would not hesitate to return to the Galleria Park. Amazing experience, gracious staff, ideally situated ... it met our expectations and then some!! Hope to return AND take advantage of outdoor terrace next time!!!

Room Tip: Corner suites are exceptional & will afford more space. Higher floor room may minimize street n...

This was our second visit to the Galleria Park Hotel and we were not disappointed. The Executive King rooms are large, especially for San Francisco hotels, and comfortable. The disadvantage is that they face Kearny Street, and there is traffic noise all day and night (the hotel staff will give you earplugs!). The front desk staff and the valets/bell men are helpful and friendly. The wine hour is a wonderful late afternoon offering. There are many good restaurants and tourist sites within walking distance. There are two negatives: the housekeeping is inconsistent, some days much more thorough than others, and the parking is very expensive (not unexpected in San Francisco).
Nevertheless, we will certainly return a third time!

Stayed 2 nights in December in this quaint hotel. Location is great to the BART, bus stops and shopping. Room is spacious enough for me and more importantly quiet (could hear noise of other guests outside occasionally but still slept very peacefully through the night), clean and comfortable. I like the fact that they had a stand-up shower instead of a tub. Nice ameneties. Shower water should be a little hotter though. Heater is sufficient for December in SF. Staff are friendly and morning coffee/tea is great, just wished they had some pastries/bread like the Andrew's Hotel I stayed previously. Wi-fi is fast enough for me. Walk-in closet had no light and canabalised room space.

Green Features: Decline Housekeeping to get a 1 Litre bottle of water!

A wonderful hotel, great staff, perfect location, lovely appointments and cool vibe: I recommend the Galleria Park Hotel to travelers who love historic and well cared for properties. I have never been disappointed by this hotel and I love to be able to walk out and catch a street car on Market Street or walk up to California Street to take the Cable Car up Nob Hill. There are some very good restaurants nearby too like "Claude" and Belden Place, especially "Brindisi". I was sorry to see the Jazz Club close just around the corner called "Oz." Maybe there will be another one to replace it. Union Square is nearby as well and check out the secret garden on top of the Galleria!

Room Tip: I always ask for a tub.

But why all the super high ratings? The rooms feel like those small Victorians you rent right out of college, with pipes that clang, musty closets, and windows that let in all the siren and car alarm sounds. That being said, the location is great, the lobby is chic, and the bathrooms have nice, modern finishes.

Conveniently located in the heart of San Francisco, Galleria Park gives you easy access to everything the Bay Area has to offer to its visitors.

Within blocks are Union Square, Chinatown, the Financial District, Moscone Convention Center, and several world-class museums. The hotel is just steps away from world-class shopping destinations in Union Square--an area that is definitely a tribute to the power of shopping. Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Barneys New York, Gump's and a very substantial Macy's are right on the Union Square. The venerable Bullock and Jones and Tiffany and Co. are within walking distance, as is the nine-story Westfield San Francisco Shopping Centre with its three-level Nordstrom and Bloomingdale's. It is also a center for exclusive couture and high fashion, with boutiques dedicated to Betsey Johnson, Kate Spade, Herve Leger, Karen Miller, and Michael Kors. Post Street, which is a block away from Galleria Park is where the high-end stores are located including Ralph Lauren, Ferragamo, Juicy Couture, Tory Burch, Ferrari and Porsche clothing stores. ... more   less
