Nice Room, Great Location

We flew in to town for the weekend (actually for the Cubs/Giants game) and when we got to the hotel, the location could not have been better. It was our first time in San Fran and everything was walking distance: shopping, food, cable cars, and public transportation. Long and short: it was the best deal for the money. The room was nice, clean, and fit perfectly within out taste and budget!

Excellent Stay!

Went to SF for a family vacation and had a wonderful time. Selected this Hilton based on the location, excellent reviews, and the fact that I'm a Rewards member and try select Hilton hotels when traveling on business. Staff was very friendly and professional.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Only a few blocks to the shops @ Union Square and the cable car stop. China Town is about 5-6 blocks. Other tourist areas such as Fishermans Wharf, Pier 39, Golden Gate Park, Presidio, etc., can be reached via this city's excellent public transporation service (bus, trolleys and cable cars) - I recommend purchasing a Muni pass. If renting a car, there are 2 garages across the street from the hotel which are substantially lower than parking @ the hotel.

Ok overall. Convenient location w/ negs.

The hotel room was okay overall. We requested 1 king bed but they ran out, so they gave us a room with 2 queen beds. Luckily, it's a room that was recently remodeled. Nothing fancy. A few carpet stinks in the room. Saturday night was a bit noisy for a couple hours with music and street people hanging outside of the hotel, but I finally fell asleep 'cause I was so tired. Our room was on the 10th floor and right above the hotel main entrance. TV was aged and old-style. Coffee in room was very good. Bathroom was clean but not super clean. Make sure to play with the air-conditioning way before heading to bed. The room got cold quickly but once the air-conditioning was turned down or off, it could get quite stuffy and warm. For the promotional price we paid, we paid for what we got and had no major complain while the hotel is in a convenient location. Yet we'd not pay more staying at Hilton Union Square.

Great lobby, thin walls

We went to several bars throughout the city and required a cab to go to them. Venture off the wrong path near this hotel and it gets very very seedy. On the right path is great shopping. We walked easily to the BART transit which makes for much cheaper transportation to the airports. The walls were paper thin. We woke up several times to our neighbors coughing and once to them doing something unmentionable here. The lobby was nice and ornate, but the halls were dated/narrow and the bed was somewhat uncomfortable. Nice bathroom and plenty of space, but nothing too luxurious. By comparison, we usually stay at Starwood hotels. We certainly liked this hotel's location and room (minus the bed) better than the Westin Market Street.

Good location nice hotel

I always rate the hotels based on the cleanness and quality of the bed/ bathroom. Bed was really comfortable and sheets were soft. I didn't spend much time in the hotel other than sleeping but it was good!!

Nice hotel but parking = $$$$

We got a good deal on a room here, around 95 dollars i think for a queen bed. We flew in to San francisco to start our CA trip so just one night spent here to rest our heads before we hit the road. Room was lovely, a good size with a nice view & big tv. Bathroom was fine too, clean & good powerful shower. Staff were friendly too. Dont park here though. Too expensive.

excellent hotel

We enjoyed two beautiful days in the Hilton San Francisco. The location is perfect, close to market street and the cable car station. Altought the rooms are small, they are clean and very comfortable. Very fair room rates!
