Ideal Location

The hotel location was central to all the tourist attractions. We did not rent a car and had about a 1 to 2 mile walk to Fishermen's Wharf, Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower, Lombard Street (crookedest road) nice restaurants and shopping. The service was excellent, very polite and efficient.

Great Location

We loved the location; close to Powell and Market streets where all the public transportation can be accessed. The housekeeping staff is friendly and does a good job. Nice fitness center and spa area. Would be nice if they offered continental breakfast, but there is a starbucks inside.

Absolutely wonderful!

We stayed at the hotel for four nights and four days. Had a wonderful time. Loved that there was a Starbucks in the lobby! The employees were great. The rooms were a perfect size for two people and always kept very clean. I would definitely go back!

Hilton SF stay

I was surprised to get a pool level room with a small outdoor area. Room was really nice and the location of the hotel is perfect for SF. I would stay again with no question asked.

you know the song!

Hotel location was THE BEST POSSIBLE. We were 2 minutes from the bus or cable cars which take you anywhere you want to go! Consierge was very helpful no matter how mundane the question. This was not true however with the Tower Tours people at the hotel---they had a hard time tearing their eyes away from their computer screens(surfing) and at times seemed annoyed that a person may not know where something was--but then again I'm a tourist!
