Hollywood-style glamour at 3-star prices

Housed in an elegant 1930s building in the cultural district of San Francisco, the Steinhart Hotel and Apartments have charm and style in abundance. Responsible for the design of such fashionable boutiques as Gucci and Ralph Lauren, interior designer William Sofield created an exclusive 1930s-inspired design ethic that would not be out of place in a classic Hollywood film, but with modern conveniences such as high-speed Internet access thrown in. The Steinhart Hotel and Apartments also allows pets, by prior arrangement.

3 Reasons To Stay:
  • Interior design featured in House Beautiful magazine
  • Cooking, barbecue and picnic facilities included
  • Complimentary use of fitness center nearby

The gracious design by William Sofield extends to polished wooden furniture with a classic Art Deco style, to soft lighting, elegant sofas and chaises, and beautifully accessorized kitchen and living areas, with thick drapes, chic lamps, fruit bowls and well-chosen, discreet artworks on the walls. Microwaves, refrigerators and full kitchen services are available in the rooms. The Steinhart Hotel and Apartments offers a safe deposit box, laundry and concierge services.

decent hotel for decent price

Needed a cheap hotel for a 5 day trip. Hotel was clean and staff were courteous. Only concern is proximity to bad areas of town, but the staff was kind enough to provide guidance of areas of town to avoid and how to get around safely. The hotel is nothing fancy, but very sufficient if all you need is a clean place to sleep while in town.

Great convention stay

I like saving money, and I don't need a lot of attention at a hotel. I just wanted a place to crash for a long convention week. I would not have been proud to show off my room, but I saved money here and felt good about it. My room had a kitchen and there's a Trader Joes's about 3 blocks away - so I saved money on several meals as well. I did ask for a room with a better view (mine looked onto a blank wall) but they had no other rooms for the week I had booked. Christopher tried to accommodate, but there really was little he could do. Mine was a convention stay for a week. Worked out really well.

Maid service

The only thing I did not like was that I had no maid service. The staff was very helpful in getting me around san francisco and there is a market next door that will have what you need. Luckily I was alone and the room was well stocked.

learn the bus and street cars EARLY! San fran is expensive and taxis are not cheap! Do NOT rent a car because parking SUCKS and EXPENSIVE! Also, you're better off walking!

Great place for a long stay

The staff was very friendly and our appartment was super clean. The bed was too small for two people, I don't think that it was even a double bed. The location was good, we walked everywhere except that we were very close to a seedy neighborhood and there were a lot of homeless persons on the street. Overall, we would stay there again it was nice having the space of a studio instead of just a hotel room and even if we stayed out late we felt safe at all times.

Great in every way for 5-day long-weekend

Value for money (1 x bedroom apt.): excellent. Location: part of main/best city district - services/restaurants/shopping, and general easy city (walking + transport) - all superior, safe, convenient. Cleanliness: spotless; well-maintainted (room + common areas) Service: cozy; hospitable; friendly; accommodating; interactive but non-intrusive. Appointments: all equipment superior; loved the I-phone docking station for playing on in-room stereo; two flat-screen TVs - most generous; and high-quality furnishings. Spacious; nice windows in multiple rooms/fine cross-street view. Overall atmostphere: quiet; relaxing; and stop-in visiting friends from London were most impressed. Recommendation: Highly recommended. Definitely keep this on any SF-trip hotel list ! Submitted from: well-travelled/experienced international clients - with absolutely no hidden agenda or 'special' commercial connections, interests, or incentives. This is a totally objective, independent personal customer review from September 2012.

A fantastic base to explore San Fran.

A great hotel combining old style and modern furnishings. A good quiet location with friendly, helpful staff. The appartment was spacious and comfortable.

Beats a standard hotel room any day (well, 7 days at least)

If you plan to visit for a week or so, this is an excellent alternative to a hotel room. Apartments are large, quiet and include everything you have in a hotel, plus an equipped kitchen. There are two markets on the block, so very easy to pick up something for a meal in-house. And it was a very easy walk to Union Square...and a longer casual walk to Golden Gate park.

Stayed for a business trip

My experience was less than stellar. Because I was travelling with many bags and not knowing there was nobody to assist with anything, it made coming and going very difficult. No luggage racks were even available. I did not know that I had to know a security code to enter the domicile and after travelling for 8.5 hours, I had to wait outside for 25 minutes before somebody entered to get in. The person at the front desk barely moved when Idid get in. I would not recomment this hotel again.

Disappointment!

We booked this hotel for a Technology summit and the wireless is extremely slow. 3G is running faster. There is also no AC! Huge disappointment. Not worth the $$$.
