One night stay

I stayed on a Friday night for an interview Saturday morning. The front desk was extremely friendly, the room was clean, totally quiet, comfortable beds, very convenient location. The room service was expensive for what you get.

Great for a SF getaway

We stayed one night for a little getaway. It is a quick 4 block walk to Union Square and close to the financial district too. The room was small, but nice. It was clean and the bathroom was nicely remodeled. There was a large flatscreen tv with quite a few channels and free wifi. The bed was comfortable and the room was very quiet. They had a small workout room which my hubby used. They have a wine reception in the lobby from 5:30-6:30 which was very popular with the guests. All the staff members were very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

Good Union Square location

The staff was extremely polite, friendly and accommodating. Design of the building is reminiscent of hotels in Europe. The room itself was a bit small but clean and the bed was very comfortable. The stay was very enjoyable.

Great girls trip!!!

I stayed at the Galleria Park Hotel 6 years ago when my husband proposed. I decided to stay there again when my mom, sister, and I decided to plan a girls trip to SF. It was perfect. The location was great. The staff were polite, friendly, and helpful. The wine happy hour/social was the perfect touch. We all agreed we would definitely stay there again. Great stay!!
