Long Weekend Stay (Friday - Monday)

It was a nice hotel with a beautiful lobby and entrance. Lots of rooms (three towers worth). A Starbucks in the lobby, which was nice. Not very close to the waterfront, but very close to the cable car stop that will take you to the water front (about a 20 minute ride).

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Buy a Muni pass for multiple days. This can be used on the cable cars, buses, and muni (underground). It will save money if you ride it more than 3 times (for a five day pass) and in San Fran, with the hills, it's nice to have some transportation options :)

Close to everything

I enjoyed being close to Union Square. Almost everywhere we went was an easy walk. What wasn't an easy walk was an easy taxi ride. I would have liked to have had more information about local restaurants. The doorman was very helpful. There were no vending machines, only the overpriced minibar.

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.

$50 For Parking?!!!

The hotel was exactly what we paid for - a decent place to sleep, but the fact that they charged $50 for self-parking is a cruel joke. We're giving you business and you charge us that much for parking?

Good Lodging, But Pricey Parking

The Hilton was a quality place to stay, but gave us less for our money than other Hiltons we've stayed at. As a Hilton Honors Gold VIP, I expect more than having to wait in a line to redeem a coupon for coffee, muffin, juice and a piece of fruit at the lobby Starbucks in the morning. How can other Hiltons offer a complete breakfast buffet or continental breakfast in their Hilton Honors Club? I was also amazed to be charged over $51 per day just to self-park (which included occupancy tax, as if I were living in the parking space). That's almost as much as the daily rate for the mortage for my home. We might have parked at the garage across the street for $29 per day, but would have had to run the gauntlet with the "interesting" downtown characters that lurk out on the streets in this part of town. This seemed to be in line with San Francisco over all as a vacation destination: over priced and not as much of a value as it should be.

It was cool for the most Part

The hotel experience was excellent. I did not like the fact that they charged for every little thing. You could go down the street to a less fancier hotel and get more for less money. The parking was not free for hotel residents and no complimentary breakfast at all. I would have paid less money for more of the simple things that they did not offer. The refrigerator was not big enough to store food. They also kept it stocked in hopes of you getting hungry at night and paying for the high price items that were stored in there already. Overall the hotel was nice. But next time I will pay less and get more I am sure.
