What a pleasure1

I booked Hilton Union Square for five nights from Thursday thru Tuesday. My stay was fantastic. The service was great. Very clean rooms and incredibly quite. I never heard any noise from other rooms. Some from the hall but to be expected. The location was perfect. Very centrally located with easy access to all forms of transportation. All the shopping you could ask for as well as restraunts. I will definitely do this one again!

Try Sears Fine Foods by Union Square. A short walk and very historic building and restraunt history. The breakfast can't be beat. Very central to all of the great stores, Saks, Neimans etc.

it's Hilton!

Shopping, Nightlife and Dining are very close, everything is close from this hotel, you got Starbucks in the lobby. You got to pay (a lot) for everything is extra (even internet, in our room was ethernet only) but this is a very good hotel and has a great service.

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.

Just the 2 of us...after Christmas

We booked this bacause my boyfriend had never been there except when he was 18 and being deported to Vietnam....he is now 61...so a lot to see, we saw it all and loved it. Alcatraz, Hwy 1, being from VA the ocean and it's difference, wine country (though not green this time, shops, China town....etc. :-)) Oh and a huge starfish, Seals eating bait from the crab pots @ the pier, sea lions in the ocean on 1, a giant starfish and a wild cyote just over the Golden Gate Bridge! Nice people who helped us along the way everywhere. The homeless and the beggers are a bit intimidating and very abundent...that's too bad for such a nice S.F.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Bart took a long time and you miss the city down on the rail....for $40 bucks and a tip you can get a town car, be at the airport in 15 minutes and avoid a long walk lugging your baggage and waiting for bart. A cab to fisherman's wharf was $8.50 and goes the street car route but no 4 hour wait!
