Wonderful experience

There were four ladies in our group and we were all happy with the Hilton. We came to run the Nike Women's Marathon so we needed our rest the night before. The beds were so comfortable we almost didn't wake up in time. We'll definitely be back next year. Only gave 3 stars on value but that's how I feel about the whole SF room rates.

Great location for the Nike Women's Marathon

Great location close to Union Square, Bart, shopping areas, and the Nike Women's Marathon start line, and expo. Although there was always a long line at the front desk, the staff was very helpful and very friendly.

Excellent Hilton

Rooms recently upgraded--very comfortable and quiet (I love quiet hotels). Every single room and maintenance member we met in Tower 3, on 18th floor were professional and very friendly -- we liked that!

great location not a great value

The location was great for the theater, but there was no microwave, no mention of the $50.00 per day parking fee, the internet was an added fee, breakfast not included, (average cost $30.00 per person), bathroom was very nice with glass shower, the complimentary shampoo etc smelled terrible, the service personal were great. We have been to San Francisco before with better accommodations. we will be back soon but the Hilton won't be on our agenda.

Great Location

Despite being a large hotel, the staff was uniformly pleasant and helpful. We had the same housekeeper for out entire stay, who helped us with extra daily coffee and generally made us feel at home. The desk clerk was very accommodating and the concierge informed us of discount admissions for places we wanted to see.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Cafe Mason is just around the corner with excellent food at good prices. They feature fresh local vegetables and good California wine. Open quite late, so it's perfect for after the theater.

average value

There are three towers in this hotel. customers stay in Tower 3, the least fancy of the three. All in all, it was nice, but I have stayed in nicer ones. There was no luggage rack nor laundry bag, and the room was small.

Good Location and friendly atmosphere with top security

Over all I am pleased with the hotel However they have to keep track of correct reservations I have reserved a none smoking room but for the first night the hotel put us in a smoking room which was very bad for myself and my wife as both of us suffer respiratory problems.

Nice hotel & good location

Liked the overall experience at this hotel. Good location with a Starbucks adjacent to the lobby made it very convenient for quick morning coffee or light breakfast. A little disappointed with the view based on the hotels description, so I would double check what I'm getting if I went back. Staff was very pleasant and friendly.
