Great Hotel!

I have no complaints about this hotel. It was in a great location, has a great staff, and is very nice. The hotel staff even gave us a late check out without an extra charge. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice Clean Hotel

It's the Hilton, with all the amenities that you would expect. Rooms were immaculate. They placed me in a handicapped room by the elevator. A stone's throw away from the heart of the city.

Great Staff

This hotel, is in a very good location and close walking distance to all shopping, restaurants and sights..Even though, our room was not ready, the staff was very cordial and offered us breakfast for our entire stay of a week..The restaurant was at the top of the 46th. floor, with an awesome view of the city. The fist room we had, was very noisy, since it was very close to the elevators..The staff accomodated us, by moving us the next day, to a lovely room, in tower two..Try to request this tower, as tower three, in not great.. Our maid was a very sweet girl, who cleaned our room nicely every day.. No one should be disappointed in staying here..If you have any problems, the staff seems to take care of things promptly..

If you are looking for a quick bite to eat and resonable, go to the Mason Grill..Just kitty corner out to the right of the hotel.. Also, the Westfield San Francisco Mall, has a wonderful food court, with everything you can imagine..Try the Korian Grill or the Thai..

Great room

The Hilton O'Farrell Street lived up to my expectation of a Hilton - good sized room, great beds, lovely bed linen. I couldn't fault it. The restaurant though is a bit pricey so we ate out. Dont be put off my the busy lobby and Reception area. The queues were quickly dealt with and the lovely room more than made up for the few minutes wait. I would return to this hotel

Very Friendly

The Hilton San Francisco was a fantastic hotel. Not only was it close to shopping and other places of interest, ALL staff members were extremely friendly, professional, kind and willing to help whenever it waws needed. The room was very comfortable and the housekeeping staff did a fantastic job of keeing the room clean. When i visit San Francisco again, i will stay at the Hilton San Francisco.

We used the Cable Cars, F-line and the bus to get everywhere. The stops for each of those are right around the corner from the hotel.

Excellent Location

The hotel is less than two blocks from Union Square and close to major shopping, theater, and dining opportunities. The BART station is nearby, making it easy to connect to all parts of the city. The friendly staff make the size of the property and the bustling lobby seem more personal. The City View dining room on the 47th floor closed in June, so there is no longer a fine dining opportunity with a glorius view. Instead, the new Urban Tavern is attached to the lobby. The food there is upscale Mediterranean and, while the place is ultra-designed, it feels cold and empty. It seems to be trying for a cool urban vibe, but doesn't attract either locals or hotel guests. We tried it once, but because of the dozens of other opportunities in the neighborhood, ate the rest of our meals elsewhere.

Good value

The hotel has recently undergone a full-scale renovation, so it was in excellent shape. It was easy to reach by airport shuttle as well. The rooms were very nice and very clean. Plenty of closet space and all the usual amenities (hair dryer, iron, etc.). The location is good--within walking distance of plenty of shops. I did not find too many good restaurants in the neighborhood, however; there wasn't much time on this trip to look around.

The usual stores, like Gap, Sephora, Ross, Old Navy, etc. There's also a mall (4 stories, I think) with Bloomingdales, Saks, and other high-end stores, as well as a very large food court (including a nice market).
