Hyatt Regency San Francisco

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Business trip. Quiet for the city on higher floors. Very friendly and professional staff. Avoid the restaurant for breakfast as it is very pricy with substandard food. In house market and coffee shop is a good value.

noticed a smelly dirty sock left by someone else in the corner of the room

I booked this hotel knowing that it is strategically located in front of the SF Ferry Building. It is great for photos of the Embarcadero. Building's design and layout is somewhat stuck in the 70s/80s but once you get past that, rooms are clean and well kept and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Please note that valet parking is $70/night!!!!!!! Self-parking is roughly around $34 but doesn't provide you with in and out privileges so you have to plan accordingly.

Hotel is just a few steps away from the Bart and taxi service is always readily available right outside the doors. We had a great view of the ice skating rink and a partial view of the Bay Bridge. Hotel restaurant menu is ok at best. There are plenty of shops and places to eat within walking distance. Overall great experience and would stay here again.

Arrived and parking prices were way over the top. The room smelled and was not what we booked. Changed rooms the next day and had to sit in the lobby for four hours to wait for the new room. Toilet seat was broken and the hotel is very dated. There was garbage on the floors that stayed there for two days throughout our stay.

Hotel is extraordinarily well located for business in the financial center, tourist attractions, and public transportation. The check-in was frictionless as well as the checkout process. The only negative was the noise from the street on the south side of the hotel made sleep difficult after 5 AM.

The hotel is stunning inside. The restaurant is overpriced and just mediocre at best. The servers are not very attentive and as with everything in San Francisco, it's EXPENSIVE! I highly recommend mapping out the closest parking deck and using it as the hotel charges $62 + 14% tax per day for valet parking. we were talked into "upgrading" our room for $40 per night so we could see the events at the ice rink, but the balcony was on the side of the building not the back so the view was another building and a sliver of the bay. Overall a nice hotel, but I wouldn't recommend staying in the dirty financial district that is full of homeless people right outside the door begging for change.

We love this property. Close to the Ferry Building (shops and farmers market on Saturdays) and the wharf area (Bay Tours, Ferry Boats and Exploratorium). Walking distance to AT&T Park (Giants) and some of the very best dining in the City's SOMA area. You can walk out of the hotel and catch a Cable Car to take you up to Union Square, Nob Hill and more wonderful sightseeing and dining. Just a few blocks from Chinatown and within walking distance or a short BART or Muni ride to the theater district. The hotel staff is super friendly and helpful with directions or sightseeing ideas. Cars and luggage are handled with speed and care. Housekeeping is friendly and efficient and ready with any forgotten items. Hotel has several onsite dinning and room service options, if desired, providing more flexibility when it's time to refuel or grab a snack without leaving the hotel. During the winter holidays you can walk outside and rent a pair of ice skates and take a spin around the outdoor ice rink with the kids! Then shop the vast variety of vendor stalls that line Market Street. Rooms are family friendly with refrigerators and in room coffee fixins. Nomini bar in room, but a lively bar scene off the lobby. Loads of high tech options in the lobby for working travelers, and wi-fi throughout.

Traveling on business. Excellent room, food at concierge level was flavorful and varied

First, the staff is truly 5 star. Every person we interacted with was beyond exceptional. The location of the hotel was perfect for our stay, street trolley's 25 feet from hotel to Chinatown/other places Street Cars to the Ports are 4-5 minute walk - take these to Alcatraz, Wharf, SAF Port, Aquarium Hotel was clean, quiet, tons of restaurants within 5 min walk.

Across street from ferry building. Great location for public transportation and walking. Nice view. Nice room.

Check in was great, was able to get me a room 4 hours before check-in Staff was wonderful all through stay Within easy walking distance to trolley and street cars that take you to Chinatown and Pier 39 & Alcatraz

Great hotel, quiet room, clean and options for food or hanging out in the huge lobby!

Like the hotel my only problem is the bathroom too small no place to hang change of clothes

Indeed a pleasent & comfortable stay. The hotel staff was polite & hospitable

My husband and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with a trip to San Francisco. Hyatt Regency made it very special. The accomadations were excellent. We had a beautiful balcony room overlooking the bay. The staff couldn't have been kinder to us. Breakfast bar was outstanding; however, we were disappointed in the restaurants. Not much menue selections. Would recommend to all of our friends.

The San Francisco Hyatt Regency is a great hotel for business or pleasure. You are one block away from the Embarcadero and the San Francisco Pier. You are also very close to Union Square, China Town, etc. The views from rooms are fantastic.

Enjoyed the clean rooms, very kind staff, very delicious breakfast. I like how it's very close to everything

I enjoyed my stay, however, there are quite a few homeless in the area outside of the hotel. The hotel is near quite a few areas within walking distance so that is nice. Plus, a quick Uber ride will get you to other places that you'd rather drive to. The hotel room was nice, though when we walked in there was a slight smoky smell in the air which means someone was breaking the rules and smoking in that room prior to our arrival. The bathroom toilet area is a bit cramped because the toilet is so close to the shower/tub. The hotel lobby areas are beautiful. Don't stay here if you need a pool. Other than that, it was a good experience and I would stay again.

Good service and very nice secure hotel. Liked the new bar and food service area. Enjoyed our stay.

posh hotel with huge pricetag

Everyone

The hotel is stunning inside. The restaurant is overpriced and just mediocre at best. The servers are not very attentive and as with everything in San Francisco, it's EXPENSIVE! I highly recommend mapping out the closest parking deck and using it as the hotel charges $62 + 14% tax per day for valet parking. we were talked into "upgrading" our room for $40 per night so we could see the events at the ice rink, but the balcony was on the side of the building not the back so the view was another building and a sliver of the bay.
