Perfect walking distance from shopping.

Nicely within walking distance to shopping and landmarks. Lots of places in the hotel to purchase bottled water. (A problem I have had in some other hotels.) The always bustling lobby gives the hotel a nice energy. One negative was the bathroom being so tiny with the toilet right in front of the counter and a foot away from the sink. I barely had room to put things. I kept thinking I was going to drop items in the toilet.

Don't bother standing in the enormous Starbuck's line in the hotel lobby. There's one on nearly every corner.

Ups and downs

The location of the hotel was excellent. This was our first time to San Francisco. We wanted to see all of the typical tourist sights. We rented a car for the entire trip, but really only needed it for two days. The parking fees were too expensive. We didn't figure out the public transportation until the third day. Mostly our fault for trying to drive to most places.

If you plan on sightseeing, don't rent a car. The parking fees are $30-$45 per night. Don't count on the locals to know where things are.

Great getaway

A lot of walking in San Fran. Don't even bother driving cause you'll just park your car and it's very expensive. Very interesting places to go and places to eat everywhere.

Great Service, great room!

Great location in Union square. Easy access to muni, shopping and all tourist attractions. Awesome Irish House pub and restaurant less than one block away. Dueling Piano on Wednesday and Thursdays. Staff very professional. Allowed us early check-in with no hassel. Great luggage service. Our flight was much later than our check out. Hilton held our luggage while we took one last stroll through the city.

that will be extra

Hotel was expensive and didn't include anything beyond a room; spa, shuttle, internet -- everything was extra. There was always a bellman to keep the homeless folks out of the entry area. Next time I would stay at an express where I could at least catch a continental breakfast before heading to the conference without dropping another $20 at Sarbucks. If you aren't on a budget it's a nice place to stay, but if you are you should look at some other places.

take public transportation from the airport to the hotel. It will get you their faster, safer and cheaper than the shuttle.
