awesome hotel in shady neighborhood

The hotel is very well kept. We suffered a bit of noise from the room across the hall, but that is not the fault of the hotel. The only real downside is the area where the hotel is. Too close to tenderloin - lots of homeless/unbalanced people on the street in the blocks around the hotel. pretty bad even during the day.

Friendliest Staff Ever

Every staff person, from the front desk to the waiters to the security guards, was friendly and helpful. Room was big and clean. The only thing missing was dining options--there is only one restaurant on site, and it is pricey (but good).

GREAT PRICE & LOCATION

THE PUBLIC TRANSPORTION IS GREAT, ONCE YOU GET THE HANG OF IT. HOP ON HOP OFF BUS PICKS UP OUTSIDE HOTELS SIDE ENTRANCE, WHICH WAS VERY CONVENIENT. HOTEL IS CLOSE TO UNION SQUARE - A COUPLE OF BLOCKS. HOTEL IS CLOSE TO THE BART, IF COMING IN FROM THE AIRPORT, IT IS INEXPENSIVE, PRICES INCREASED, BUT $8.10 TO THE POWELL STATION IS PRETTY GOOD. HOTEL IS VERY CLEAN THROUGHOUT, OUR HOUSEKEEPER WAS VERY FRIENDLY AND DID AN EXCELLENT JOB! THE HOTEL ROOM WAS REPORTED TO BE SMALL, IT'S THE SAME SIZE AS MOST HOTELS. POOL AREA WAS VERY PRIVATE & CLEAN. THE BEDS ARE VERY COMFORTABLE. I WOULD STAY THERE AGAIN ON MY NEXT VISIT TO SAN FRANCISCO.

Great location

Went to Alcatraz, walked the Golden Gate bridge, had a great time at Nappa Valley. Attempted to take this tour on our own not a good idea. Suggest you take the tour with a guide since you need an appt. for some of the wineries or some will not even let you in. Great city highly recomend the trip. Weather was beautiful during the day, but cold at night need a jacket. Would like to visit again.

Excellent Stay!

Went to SF for a family vacation and had a wonderful time. Selected this Hilton based on the location, excellent reviews, and the fact that I'm a Rewards member and try select Hilton hotels when traveling on business. Staff was very friendly and professional.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Only a few blocks to the shops @ Union Square and the cable car stop. China Town is about 5-6 blocks. Other tourist areas such as Fishermans Wharf, Pier 39, Golden Gate Park, Presidio, etc., can be reached via this city's excellent public transporation service (bus, trolleys and cable cars) - I recommend purchasing a Muni pass. If renting a car, there are 2 garages across the street from the hotel which are substantially lower than parking @ the hotel.

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.
