Nice Hotel but ...

Room was very small even for two people. Especially the bathroom was very cramped. It was not easy to wash face, for example, without hitting head to the mirror. This certainly brings the value down significantly for the price paid. The room was supposed to have pool view but it turned out to have a pool area view. That is, the pool was not visible from the room unless you stretch to see it. I couldn't find a hotel information booklet in the room that tells about the amenities, how to use them, policies, hours, etc. Overall, a nice hotel at a great location with just OK accommodation.

Convention hotel

This was a typical convention hotel. Nothing necessarily unexpected, place to rest your head. I did enjoy the restaurant down stairs and the hotel staff was friendly. I do wish they would clear out the air filter in the bathroom, but otherwise seemed clean enough.

San Fran trip

We are avid Hilton fans and this hotel did not disappoint. the only thing we did not care for was the small Starbucks in the lobby was also the go to for the conitinental breakfast for hhonors guests that had coupons and thus created extremely long lines and waits for coffee with no other option in the hotel available The location was great.

Busy Weekend in Town

Hotel is a staple in San Francisco - location is good - rooms are very small - price is expensive for value, although most hotels in San Francisco are expensive - health club way too small for size of this hotel as it is always, always busy - restaurant OK but for size of hotel should have a much better restaurant and bigger - bar is quite nice. Typical Hilton really.

Quick trip to SF State U

We've stayed at the hotel before. The hotel's close proximity to the Bart station, the mall and restaurants make it worth the money.

Great stay

I tried booking a room in June for an October event and there were no rooms available. When I tried booking again in September there were rooms available for October. A little frustrating, not sure why this happens. Although glad we got a room.

Excellent hotel, very pricey

This hotel is located at a very central place with easy access to all the shopping areas. The only down side was the price that did not include wifi or breakfast.
