Perfect! Will always stay here when in San Francisco. Such a beautiful hotel.

This was a quick trip to SFO and the hotel ended up being in the center of everything we wanted to do. We did not have to call Uber at all and we were able to use the subway for our round trip to the airport. So, I absolutely loved the location of this hotel. It was a bit smaller than I expected but since it was only my brother and I, it worked out fine. I would definitely recommend it to couples or small groups.

Sent a group of 6 for a convention. They loved the amenities and service.

Great customer service and nice hotel. Housekeeping can be improved though.

I have no problems with this hotel. Our stay was great. The room was very nice, and clean. The staff were very helpful. I forgot a brush at home, and a comb was provided. They gave us extra pillows upon request. A late check out was offered when we explained our travel details. I would highly recommend this hotel. My only issue with it was that it was a little farther from the BART, Powell and Union Square than a previous stay, but that is not the hotels fault and it meant I got more exercise. Fabulous stay in San Francisco!!!!

The hotel is located walking distance of Chinatown and Union square. a plus is the wine served everyday from 5 to 7 PM.

Rooms are bit small but overall the hotel was great. Great location to everything. 2 blocks from Union Square, 3 blocks from Chinatown, and 5 blocks from Pier. Rooms were nice and clean. The customer service from the staff, front the minute we pulled up in valet, to check in, to check out was one the nice perks and made our stay a very nice one. Free coffee in mornings and free wine for happy hour was a nice perk too.

Central location. Buzz about to lots of fun. The staff was great and the room super nice.

Hotel was nice and centrally located in downtown San Francisco. Check-in was a breeze, staff was friendly. My wife and I did not have a problem with the bathroom size as others have mentioned (I've stayed in Paris and the bathroom here is definitely not as small as they are there). One minor problem was they seem to only clean the rooms once a day and if you wake up late they tend to miss your room. We had to ask for fresh towels one day. Other then that we had a great stay here and would recommend it to others.

I couldn't be more delighted with my stay here. The staff was great at checkin (thanks Jeff!) and picked a very quiet room for me and told me about various amenities like the wine hour and the rooftop terrace. The room was cozy and had everything I needed, the shower was great and the Jonathan Adler products smelled very nice. I'll definitely be back!

You get a small boutique hotel, it's cute but nothing special. Room with 2 double beds was tiny, beds comfortable but not much space. Bathroom Tiny too. Plumbing issues though, not something you want to think about in a hotel stay. Location in Financial district, about 10-15 min walk to union station, Mall, yerba buena gardens. Turned on shower and clogged immediately. Had to wait over 30 minutes between people to shower. We told hotel staff upon check-out, they didn't seem to care much about what we went through. Won't stay here again.

Charming and tasteful decor, very comfortable mattress and pillows, old-world feel. We had a courtyard room, and there was no noise at all. We had a restful and relaxing stay.

The room was on the smaller side and the shower was pretty skinny but overall it was quite pleasant and in a great location. Staff was super friendly and my husband and I had a lovely stay. If you need complete silence to sleep and you're not used to city noise, this is not the hotel for you. The bed was super comfortable, pillows were perfect for all pillow preferences, room came with a wine opener, and we were greeted with a handwritten note and a small bottle of wine. However, if you want to use the fridge you have to take stuff out.....no big deal in the overall scheme of things.

Right near Union Square. Tiny but functional rooms. Street noise.

Great location, pretty central to everything and easy access to all public transportation, great shopping and restaurants. Staff was very nice and provided excellent service.

Good location if you are willing to take transportation around the city. Staff very helpful. Nice overall decor and room and bathroom very modern. Room is small but comfortable. Parking is cheaper across the block overnight for $32. If you arrive on Saturday night as we did you can park for free the first night free on the street.

friendly staff quick and easy registration expensive and parking costs are ridiculous

From the surprisingly spacious 2nd floor room to Simone's sparkling customer service, this place was great. You can park for about $30 a night literally a half block away to avoid the $54 hotel parking.

The Galleria was more than we expected! The staff was extremely friendly and the facility is beautiful. I'll be back for sure!
