great location friendly staff rooms very small do not take room on Powell street very noisy till mn due to cable cars running have stayed there before room not on Powell street was very quiet most of the older hotels have very small rooms okay
with me but some travelers would not like it fantastic places to eat nearby
I enjoyed my stay at the Sir Francis Drake. The room was small, but clean. It was perfect for a business traveller that needed a place to rest his head. The hotel is located a block away from Union Square, right next to the Cable Car tracks, and
within easy walking distance of downtown. There are also many restaurants within walking distance. The closest are an Italian bistro and a Starbucks.
There is quite a bit of noise from the street level. If loud noises bother you, bring earplugs or ask for a room on a higher floor.
Be sure and bring a jacket with you. San Francisco can be windy and foggy. I brought my jacket with me everywhere, and was glad I did on several occasions.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
The hotel has a "Go Green" program. If you decline housekeeping, they will give you a $10 gift card good for several locations, including Scala's Bistro next door. As a business traveller, I didn't feel the need for daily housekeeping, and I enjoyed getting $10 off of my breakfast each day.
