Recent guest reviews

Great location, clean comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Great view from the 64 floor Cityscape Bar. Shopping and restaurants all in walking distance. You cannot go wrong staying at this hotel.

My daughter and I stayed 4 nights and we had a great time! The room was always cleaned and they upgraded us to a higher level. We would definately stay again! The hotel was very convinient to everywhere. It was so much fun to stay there. I would recommend this hotel to my friends.

If you like to go on a “hike” to get to your room then this is the hotel for you. The bathroom door wouldn’t stay shut, the shower pooled up and there aren’t any little mirrors to use for makeup, hair etc I would never go back. There is a nice hotel right near there that I would book next time and they have Starbucks in their lobby. The Hilton does not have Starbucks. It was a very disappointing stay.

We use the hotel just to sleep. All day we were out visiting San Francisco. The hotel were clean and confortable and with a good location.

Nice experience overall although Hotel staff (Especially their restaurant staff and front Desk agents are RUDE).But overall nice to spend your time while in SF.

Food too expensive, could not find a good option for breakfast in hotel and no room service is pretty surprising

Good place to stay but a bit pricey in restaurants and bars. A lot of nickel and diming

Excellent view and location!!! Staff was wonderful!! Best place to stay!!

Of course is one person who ruined it for all. They can go back to review some manners. Emily, will never forget you.

Close to union square but not right on union square. Back area of the hotel is a little shady but as long as you stay away from that area you're fine. Walking distance to the cable cars turn table area. Lots of car rentals right across the street if you want to rent a car. We rented a car for 2 days but did not park it at the hotel (I believe $55 per night) but there's is a parking garage down the street on ofarrell and Ellis which charges $2 hr for overnight parking which is very convenient. We took an uber from the airport to the hotel which cost about $30. Buy a muni passport which gets you on and off the busses, cable cars, street cars and subway trains.

Hotel was great! We would definitely stay here again. Hotel was very clean and hotel staff were helpful and friendly. Hotel is in perfect location too. The view from the top floor is amazing!

We had a great stay. Quiet, clean rooms. The staff was pleasant and professional.

Downtown San Francisco is gross, but this hotel is clean. Long walk to the park. Took about 30 minutes to walk to the park but luckily there's not many Hills. Descent hotel but typical San Francisco price... Expensive for the average Joe.

Nice stay for 3 days as tourist in The City. Within walking distance to shopping and restaurants.

Suggest going to Walgreens to get snacks and water. The cafe is very expensive.

I understand that the airline staff that stays at the hotel are great revenue but please have a bit more control over them. They block all access in the lobby when checking in. Just give a 3 foot space for people to get by. Hotel staff will direct other hotel guest where to stand when checking in but allow these people to block the flow of guest traffic. Everyday they push past people waiting for the elevator and move their way to the front. These are grown adults who do not seem to know the proper ediquit of letting people off the elevator before they start ramming their way into the elevator. I had to ask them repeatedly to please let my baby in her stroller and my selfie off the elevator before they jam their way in. One time a flight attendants bag fell on my daughter and when I removed it off of my daughter the flight attendant seemed upset with me. Really? Last time I saw grown adults not know common elevator ediquit was in Las Vegas and those people were usually drunk. The hotel at least had an employee working the lobby of the elevator to ensure grown adults use it properly without pushing past people in the existing line, letting others off before people enter and make sure others are not getting crushed because people are trying to jam into the elevator. You know when you are getting a large group of these airline people in and should be prepared for this. Please do not allow a contract with the airline stop you from making sure they respect others

not enough towels provided, reluctant to even provide complimentary water

This is a very large and busy hotel. It has great amenities. We upgraded a bit and got a higher room with a bay view and it was definitely worth it! The room was a newly remodeled room. It was nice and clean. The café/store in the lobby was nice to have, but very expensive. Although everything in San Francisco is expensive.

Convenient to SF shopping. As you would expect, a big city environment. Very spacious and roomy public areas.

We were a family of 4 and chided to book through orbitz instead of Priceline to ensure we get a double room. We were told by the hotel staff that the room we booked was an unrenovated room and if we wanted to stay in a renovated one, we needed to pay extra per night. That left a pretty bad taste in my mouth but Lyrssa was kind enough to give us a junior suite (unrenovated) to give my family more room. So even though the room was unrenovated, we still had a comfortable stay. Gym was very nice. Location is convenient although advise not to walk around alone at night.
