On the corner of both Chinatown and Little Italy our room on the top floor gave magnificent views of the Bay and Telegraph Hill. Lots of great restaurants in a 10 min radius by foot, the food in the hotel is VERY average, they get nearly every dish wrong, and forget many of the key ingredients that are listed on the menu. The breakfast buffet fruitis never replenished so be quick! The gym is pretty good. Wireless internet is really erratic so you cannot rely on it for business, although this is meant to be a business hotel...The staff are below 5 star hotel standard, except the concierge and coffee bar staff are excellent. The coffee was a fantastic daily experience but on weekends we treated ourselves to Cafe Trieste, really close by, and it is easy walking distance to the Pier etc. It's a 15 min walk to the centre of town.

I stayed at the Hilton Financial district April 15 for 2 nights. We arrived late, but check in was quick and smooth. We got 2 double bed rooms for a good deal on Priceline.com. My sister's family got a room with a breathtaking view of the bay, coit tower etc. They were on the 22nd floor. I had a room on the 21st floor and my room was on the other side of the hotel. It was nice, but not as great as the other room. I hear that the odd numbered rooms have the great view.

The location is great if you want to be near North Beach & Chinatown. We walked to North Beach with 3 kids in tow no problem.

The noise was ok. It was typical noise you hear if you've stay in the city. I did not hear garbage trucks as others did just cars. We did bring ear plugs just in case, but we did not use them.

Parking...I suggest you park across the street at Portsmouth Parking garage if you do not need in and out privileges.

Exercise room was on the 5th floor. It was small, but the machines were fine and it was very clean.

Free internet in your room. I am not sure what the previous poster was talking about regarding the charge.

Staff was nice and friendly.

Had nothing but bad service, attitudes, and high prices for amenities. How's $52 for self park per night sound to you? Or how about $15.95 per day for internet access? Or maybe you like $35 for breakfast? If so, this is the place for you. Not me.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm very sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with your stay. Unfortunately, I think there has been a miscommunication. Our self parking rate is $30, Internet access is complimentary, and our full American buffet is $21. Please let us know if there has been a mistake. We hope to see you again in the near future.

Stayed 3 nights at the Hilton San Francisco Financial District with my wife and kids. It was a good choice, especially for the killer views if you get a room facing the bay. The design of the hotel is nice, nothing extravagant but better than most Hiltons in my opinion as the hotel has been remodeled recently. We were lucky to get an upgrade to a bay-view room and that made a difference. The view encompasses Chinatown, Russian Hill, Telegraph Hill and North Beach. You can see the ships passing by in the bay. The room itself was just fine, clean and decent size and free wi-fi Internet access. The only drawback was the noice from the street which was a little too heavy at times, even with a room on the 19th floor. We found the location of the hotel convenient, at the junction of the Financial District, Chinatown and North Beach. For the price, this hotel was a very good choice in my opinion.

We've stayed at Hiltons before and they've been ok, but not great, however this one was fantastic. The jaw-droppingly beautiful view from our 18th floor bedroom might have something to do with that. If you stay here be sure to get a bay view room.

The rooms were quite small, but very comfortable, very clean and well decorated. Strangely enough there was quite a lot of street noise even though we were on the 18th floor, probably due to the old windows and hotel construction. Very little noise between rooms though.

Check in staff weren't friendly, but they were efficient.

We got a special offer and only paid £70 a night with Expedia for our four night stay. This was excellent value for what we got. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Most of these other reviews are accurate. The hotel is in a great location, but I would say solidly in Chinatown. Central location and close to a lot of other things. The rooms are updated, clean and nice. The desk facing the window was great. The walls are thin. I brought earplugs but if I hadn't it would have been tough. The room's remote didn't work and someone came to replace it within ten minutes on a night that two weddings were going on and it was booked solid. I would stay here again.

Main complaints were the constant sound of running water coming from somewhere above or beside us, the terribly stained window shades, and the slow to drain bathroom sink. The fact that even the little coffee stand in the lobby does not open until 6:30 AM was not good for my husband who had a early morning meeting on Market Street. Don't park at the hotel garage, unless you want to pay a bundle. Instead use the Portsmouth Square garage across the street from the hotel. The hotel's free wireless internet was a plus.
