Easy Breezy

The monaco is great. Quaint and charming. Well kept. Make sure the restaurant is open and done with their remodel if you want to order room service, and eat there. Otherwise there is lots of choices around within a short walk.

Great location

Fun weekend getaway in San Francisco. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Not too far from the Caltrain station. The room was clean and the staff courteous.

Great location and staff

Brought my girlfreind here to celebrate her birthday for the weekend. Staff was extremely helpful and courteous, concierge made extra effort providing champagne, chocolate and a greeting card on our arrival. Hotel is right in the middle of it all and convenient walking distance to most of downtown. Would definitely reccommend or stay again here.

Old time charm Perfect location

The Monaco prides itself on customer service and it shows. The entire staff was very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. From finding phone numbers to booking tours and arranging transfers, just ask and it will happen. The room was uniqely decorated; plush and comfortable. The poster bed was dressed up like a tent in royal colors and was very inviting. We enjoyed returning to the room in the evening. The hotel is located just two blocks from the trolley and was right in the middle of everything. The spa in the basement is also a very pleasant surprise. Be sure to get a massage while you are there.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Walk two blocks downhill to Powell St and catch the Hyde Park trolley down to Fisherman's Warf. Very touristy but definitely fun and worth the trip. Go to the end of Pier 39 and have a great seafood lunh while watching the sea lions or looking out over the bay and Alcatraz. Pick up some souvenirs on the way back. Don't forget your camera.

Great Hotel in Union Square

We visited all the major landmarks in San Francisco. Hotel Monaco is a great location in Union Square. Easy to walk to Market street and to where the Cable Car line starts.

Its all about the service

I am in the industry so tend to scrutinize all facets of my stay. The staff were always attentive and never distracted. Service overall was of a high standard. I had a suite, which (for city standards) was roomy enough. Room cleanliness was very good. Street noise was bearable. Windows are double-glazed. Beds very comfortable. Linens were of good quality. Gym was OK. Had the basics. I will stay there again the next time I am in SF.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

Try to get to: * Cafe Zuni for their impeccable Caesar Salad, near perfect burger, and great oyster selection. * Slanted door, for best modern Vietnamese cooking I have ever had (steamed pork and dried shrimp dumplings were the highlight. Also try the Drakes Bay oysters they serve.....perfect).
