Terrific

From the surprisingly spacious 2nd floor room to Simone's sparkling customer service, this place was great. You can park for about $30 a night literally a half block away to avoid the $54 hotel parking.

Nice hotel

The hotel was a 10 minute walk to Union Square and an easy walk to China town. Free wine late afternoon was a nice touch. No breakfasts here so not as convenient as some other hotels. We would stay here again as seemed good value for the location.

prime location

Our room was hip,artsy and comfortable. What I'd expect from San fran. The bathrooms were very nice and clean. No tub, but awesome shower and sink. The bed and pillows were phenomenal! So comfortable and cozy. The staff was pretty great as well. Yes, it is an old place and you can hear outside noise, But nothing that kept us up. Old places were just built like that. This hotel has alot of personality. We totally e joyed our stay and would stay there again.

Great trip

The hotel was very nice. Loved the decor. Only issue was that they were upgrading and fixing things two of the days we were there resulting in our room not being cleaned on those days. Not a big issue, however. The location was fantastic. Loved the intimate setting. Very nice stay and would definitely stay again.

Well located

This is a nice hotel very well located if you want to explore Union Square area and its surroundings. There is an excellent boulangerie for a great morning start a few metres from the hotel, across the street. Snacks and beverages in the room are quite expensive, even just a water bottle. The sink drain of our tiny bathroom was partially clogged, although it had a nice and modern shower. Beds were comfortable but the room needed a little bit more of air ventilation. Nice stay overall.

perfect Thanksgiving vacation!

Visiting family in San Francisco was made so incredibly easy by staying at The Galleria Park. Centrally located...perfect for walking to restaurants and great shopping. But also off the main streets so that when we wanted to relax and get some peace and quiet, we could escape the crowds and come back to the hotel. Our 2nd visit and we will most certainly be back!
