SFO Hotel

Would not recommend Sat, Mar 13, 2010
Location was good. Staff was responsive. Hotel heating was poor. Room heat only from 3pm to 10pm, otherwise, the boiler was shut off. Lobby was always cold. Room was basic and ok but not great. Shower was the best part. Too much street noise in room. Sounded as if the window was open. Plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. Didn't eat at the hotel. The restaurant seemed more like a bar and breakfast wasn't available until 7am which is too late if you are still on eastern time. Short walk to the BART; great option to and from SFO

Amazing location and beautiful decor.

This was my second visit to San Francisco and I had a much better time largely due to the Galleria Park and it's location. We were able to walk around Union Square and down to the pier and catch transportation to other parts of town. It was a snap to find a cab right outside the hotel. The area is a little pricey to eat, but we were able to find good deals by using Urbanspoon.com.

Dining

The coffee shop around the corner from the hotel has great breakfast sandwiches at very reasonable prices. We went almost every morning.

Amazing Hotel!

Would recommend Sat, Jan 23, 2010
I absolutely loved this hotel. When we booked we saw that every review we read stated it was clean and in a great location. Those were both correct! It is located in the business district and is only a few blocks from Union Square! And there are plenty of places to eat around the hotel. There is also a great restaurant and bar located right in the hotel. Another fact about the hotel that got somewhat bad reviews was the size of the room. I was in a room with two queen beds and there were three 23 year old girls. We came with a lot of luggage and there was still plenty of room! I didn't think the rooms were small at all. Also, the ceilings were very high which gave the room a lot more space. You didn't feel cramped at all. And the cleanliness was excellent. The staff even helped us set up a tour of the Muir Woods/Saulsilito/Alcatraz! The tour picked us up right outside the hotel. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about the Galleria Park Hotel. The staff were so funny and a nice group of people. For what you are paying you could not ask for anything more. I would definitely stay at this hotel again!

Would recommend Tue, Jan 19, 2010
Hotel is basically across the street from the Paseo Colorado mall, which has a movie theater and lots of restaurants. An ice rink is on the same block as the hotel. My husband left a few days before I did so I had lots of entertainment. Felt very safe on my own. Took the ARTS bus from the same block to visit family daily. Could not have been more convenient or comfortable. Friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely stay there again.

Great Bargain

Would recommend Tue, Jan 12, 2010
Location is 2 blocks from the BART, easy access to all of SF. Rooms are small but have everything you need, including a mini-bar and free internet (wired and wireless). The hotel hosts free wine happy hour everyday. We made the mistake of waiting until checkout to eat at Midi- breakfast was fantastic!

Money saver

Take the BART from SFO- only $8.10 a person.

Great Location and Comfortable Room

Would recommend Sun, Jan 10, 2010
This renovated hotel is very conveniently located to the financial district, Chinatown, and the Union Square shopping district and is accessible by Muni buses, Muni Metro and BART. The rooms are small but nicely furnished. The bathtub in my room needed to be refinished and I was surprised the room still had a television rather than the flat panel screen common in similar boutique hotels in The City. Midi, the hotel's restaurant, is chic and the food is quite good. The business center is a small room equipped with two desktop Macs and a printer. The fitness center has a couple of treadmills, a universal-type apparatus and free weights. If you're a runner, it's more fun to run down to Market Street and then head over to the Embarcadero where you can run along the bay. I highly recommend this hotel.

Money saver

It's only a two block walk from the Montgomery Street BART station to the hotel, so take BART from the airport rather than a cab or airporter bus.

Happy customer

Would recommend Fri, Dec 18, 2009
The staff blew me away with their positive attitudes and super-quick service. Polite, friendly, and accommodating. Hotel was close to food, transit (BART, trolley and bus), and the Embarbadero. We could comfortably walk to nearby attractions, or find a transit stop within a block or two. Rooms were a little tight in size, but well appointed and comfortable. The plush desk chair was particularly nice. The wall a/c unit leaked water and soaked some of my clothing, but everything else was in working order. The shampoo/lotion offerings in the bathroom were wonderful and spa quality - not just some generic store brand. I arrived well before the recommended check in time, but the room was ready, so the front desk clerk let me in early - very nice after a long plane trip! Similarly, I left town well after the noon check-out time, and they were happy to hold my bags for me while I went out sightseeing. It was too cold to enjoy the rooftop terrace on the third floor, but I did go up and walk around. It' s a nice little verdant oasis - would be wonderful on a sunny day or a warm evening. Bring up a good book or a beverage and enjoy. Free wireless internet worked just fine in my room (2nd floor), but there is a cabled version available, too. I will absolutely consider this hotel in the future.

Dining

The hotel is located near the business/financial district, so most of the cafes and restaurants are closed on Sunday. Don't count of finding anything open within a few blocks - even Starbucks - and plan to venture out into the city for food on Sundays.

Stayed here based on location, price and aesthetics. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Proximity to BART, Union Square meant that we were able to do everything that we wanted without having to taxi constantly. Would definitely stay here again.

Friendly hotel-super location-good value

Would recommend Tue, Dec 1, 2009
We've stayed at several of the smaller hotels in the Union Square area and this was our favorite. Our room was small but very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Only a couple minutes walk to the BART and shopping. Complimentary wine in the evenings and coffe in am. Good quick breakfast place next door and excellent bagel store 1/2 block away. We took a short walk down Market Street to the Ferry Building and caught the F line trolley/streetcar to Fisherman's Wharf for $2 (all day ticket). Lots of great food places to eat at the Ferry Building as well as artisan food shops, i.e. bread, cheese, chocolates, mushrooms, etc. We were surprised to find a definite decline in the number of stores at the Cannery and Ghiradelli Square, but we still enjoyed the walk from Pier 39 to the square and easily caught the F line trolley back to Market Street. Enjoyed the shrimp and chips at Tarantino's at an outside table. We love San Francisco and will definitely stay at Galleria Park Hotel on our next visit.

Money saver

Short walk to the Ferry Building was enjoyable and an easy place to pick up the F line trolley which then goes to the Fisherman Wharf area. Only $2 for adults and $.75 for seniors for an all day ticket.

I arrived Thur Nov 5 for 5 nights for the Titans/49ers game. First time ever in San FranciscoTook Go Lorrie's Shuttle from the Airport. You can take the BART, but I didn't know how or how far the stop is from the hotel w/luggage. I was alone for couple days and felt safe walking around at night - within reason. Yes, there are homeless ppl, but all major metro cites have homeless ppl - you are lucky if you are shocked by homeless ppl.The hotel met my expectations - clean and comfortable. Room 608 was facing the street - but not too loud and I didn't have any problem w/cellphone signal (Verizon). The room looks exactly like the pic on the website! Yes, the rooms are a little small, but that is to be expected in an old hotel. 1 of 2 elevators was out for couple days, but not a big deal - The housekeeping was adequate, but a little stingy w/the towels, I had to call and ask for extras. I did not have a flat screen TV and the A/C was hard to adjust - these are little things that didn't ruin my trip. The evening wine reception was AWESOME and nice to chat w/staff and other guests.I didn't eat in the Midi restaurant - a little froufrou for my taste, but there is plenty within walking distance! I had a nice steak dinner at Bob's Steak & Chop House in the Omni (ask for [...], great server who drew me a map to his favorite spots) There is a Walgreen's across the street for snacks, Pomodoro Pizza around the corner, Murphy's Bar across the street, Union Square and Chinatown are both within walking distance (and I'm lazy!)I took F Streetcar to Fisherman's Wharf, Alcatraz, and Ferry Building - I thought it was fun to find my way around the big city!DO NOT MISS the Farmer's Market if you are there Tue, Thur or Sat - it was the most amazing thing - the fresh fruits/vegetables/local vibe and food vendors on the waterfront - I didn't feel like a tourist. Recommend the RoliRoti - Gourmet Rotisserie Chicken - the line is really long, but you can go to the front if you're just getting a lunch plate!Feel free to email me if you have any questions - I had a great trip and thought Galleria Park was a pretty good value for the money and recommend it to others!
