Expected a better accomodations

The location is fantastic for those who plan shopping around Union Square or visit Chinatown (walking distance). Maybe my unluck, but the room assigned had problems with the curtain not closing entirely. For those looking for a quieter place then this is not a recommended hotel, since it hosts several group activities.

Hilton -San Francisco

The was no fitness center. The were no restaurants in the vicinity that were quick and easy for a family. All were sit down and rather expensive. The hotel was close to shopping and sightseeing businesses which was nice. We asked for queen beds and they were more like doubles. Had to ask for phone books and other necessities.

Fine hotel

Very noisy in hallways the first few nights, but the room was very comfortable and pleasant. I would go there again.

Good and Bad

This is my first time to San Francisco. Hilton is a nice hotel but the room we got was too small. The bathroom was really small just enough for two people. I would have prefer a bigger room. In the morning, we could hear people chattering outside the hallways. But the housekeeping was excellent. Our room was always kept clean with Crab Tree amendities.

Little disappointed

The parking and internet were unbelievably expensive. The worst I've seen anywhere in the world. I wouldn't not have agreed to pay so much except for the location's distance to my conference. The toilet did not flush properly and made noise 24/7. They sent someone to the room to fix it, but nothing changed. Also the fan in the heating/cool duct started to screech on the 2nd or 3rd day. The area is extremely noisy. Do not stay here if you require a good night sleep. Sirens and bums etc will keep you up until the early hours. Considering the internet is a small fortune every day it would be nice to have wireless so I can work in bed, but no - a tiny little cable on the desk is your only option.

Nice location, average everything else.

Went for a friend's birthday weekend. The hotel was fine. Only problem is that it ended up being $425 a night for a basic room. Just too much in my opinion. Other than that, the room was adequate and quiet.

Good location, issues with staff.

For business or pleasure, this Hilton offers a great location. We had an issue with the hotel staff where they were extremely difficult about issuing a new key card when one got demagnetized. Without getting into details, I think they did their best to remedy the situation after the fact by providing some free breakfast buffet passes. But when similar situations have arisen at other hotels, we never experienced such difficulty in dealing with staff to resolve this type of issue.
