“Great -- even during construction!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2009

I'm a Worldmark owner.... this is not like other Worldmarks (no kitchen, etc) but I was not the least bit disappointed. You're in San Fran -- no need to cook!! The construction is -- really -- construction... halls beat up, floors ripped up... yet, it had not the least bit of a negative impact on my stay. I heard NO noise and, except for walking through some unsightly halls, would have had no idea construction was going on. The staff was friendly and helpful (as always at Worldmark!) and the location was WONDERFUL! Really -- just the best location, close to everything, including transportation. I will definitely stay here again. (No parking at hotel but affordable lot directly across the street)

Stayed in a 1 bedroom suite which had a separate living area

Positives:
• Hotel was in a prime location in San Francisco, metres from Union Square and Chinatown.
• Our room contined a microwave, sink, some cutlery, tea / coffee maker, bar fridge and ice cooler.
• 24hr gym – was pretty good too with new equipment
• Free laundry and dry facilities at lobby floor stocked with detergents so you can do some washing.
• Free internet available at the lobby but you can purchase internet access so that you can connect from your room.
• Rooms were stocked with towels and soaps
• Staff very helpful, friendly and polite
• Free brewed coffee at the lobby floor
• There are vouchers you can collect at the lobby which gives you discounts to restaurants and eateries around the area.

Negatives:
• Rooms were small
• Unlike other Worldmark resorts I’ve stayed at it is usually spacious, the rooms were tiny.
• Hotel and room needs refurbishing and an upgrade a bit on the dull side. Although at the time were there the hotel was currently going through renovations. This will be completed by May 2009.
• No safe
• Only 1 lift and took forever to arrive on floor and would shake at times too.
• Rooms were not serviced everyday

I would probably stay here again for the convenience to tourist and shopping areas.

My sister and I stayed in a Deluxe 1 bedroom 2 bathroom room for 5 nights. Loved the location, loved the staff. They were extremely helpful and friendly. Especially James! Close to Chinatown and the cable cars. The room itself was great. The kitchenette was on the small side, but we had planned on eating out a lot anyway so it was no problem. The only thing that was a negative - the elevators were slow. We were on the 7th floor and it took ages for the elevator to arrive.

I stayed just up the street from the Juliana over the Labor Day weekend. Thought everyone should know that it is now closed and construction is underway to convert it into timeshares. Too bad, based on what everyone said here.

Good location, friendly service, affordable. We stayed there for a week in mid June when the Sox were in SF and loved the hotel. I would highly recommend it and we will definitely book another stay.

Loved our stay and found the rooms very comfortable. Location is also a big plus since we could walk to nearby locations such as China Town and Fisherman's Wharf or hop on public transit. Wine tasting added a great touch. Parking is a bit tough and not convenient. Otherwise, pretty good place to stay.

Know what? All the other reviews were right on! This hotel is a great find - very comfortable accommodations, unbeatable location, reasonable price. I stayed for 3 nights at the end of June and I was extremely satisfied.

The Bush/Stockton St. location is prime - 1 block from Powell-Hyde or Powell-Mason and 2 blocks from Calif. cable lines. 2 blocks up from Union Sq. and 1 street over from Chinatown gates. Stockton St. is on the route of several major MUNI bus lines - 30, 45. Compared to other trendy hotels, Juliana is in a much safer area than those on Geary St. (Savoy, Monaco, Diva et al).

Loved all the complimentary services, incl. the Aveda toiletries, cont'l breakfast (not fancy, not quality, but it nicely compensated for a lack of a hotel restaurant), the bowl of apples, the wine reception, the towncar service to fin'l district.

For better breakfast fare, walk 1 block to Grant St. to get something at Second Cup or Cafe de la Presse. Or as another reviewer mentioned, the Roxanne rest. on Powell St. is 1 block in the other direction.

My room on the 4th flr was well-decorated and spacious. Lots of walking space even though it included a double bed, 2 night tables, a desk/chair, sofa, armchair, round corner table, TV cabinet. Bathroom was large, clean and bright. Great water pressure, too. Bed was plump with a mattress pad and I had more down pillows than I needed.

A small quibble was that even though my room was at the back of Bush St., I was awoken by noisy garbage trucks early every morning. Even on the weekends.

If you require parking, use the Sutter/Stockton multi-level garage across the street. There are entrances on Bush and on Sutter St. $6 for 24 hours.

The front desk staff were a bit clued out when it came to "tourist" info, such as locations of places (a convalescent home), bus lines and their frequency or even the cost of stamps. However, they were well-trained for their courtesy.

Overall, I very much enjoyed my stay and have no hesitation recommending it or staying there again.
