Stanford Court San Francisco

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This was our second visit to the Stanford Hotel and we found our room quite nice again. Bedding is super comfy. Our check in host took care to provide us with a quiet pleasing room with a fabulous city view. The hotel is undergoing major construction in lobby area with room decor updates to follow but the value for this hotel is still outstanding for its location, hospitality and comfort.

On a steel hill so challenging for the elderly or disabled. No room service at this time. Jusy beginning renovations so lots of construction.

When we arrived we were put off by the very poor decor of the exterior and interior of the entry, not to speak of the only difficult staff person we met. But our room was very nicely renovated with comfortable beds to come back to after days of walking. Great location.

Room quaint but small; food options inside hotel need more options!

Hotel is being upgraded. Seems to be working as common areas are comfortable. My room had Street noises, especially at 5am trash pick up.

Comfortable bed nice shower pressure, the pillowcase was not changed since there was hair on the other side upon checking in so felt uncomfortable, location good but it's on a steep hill if you walking

This was my second time at Stanford Court and I'm definitely going to make it a third time. It's extremely convenient, but still away from the noise of market street. Highly recommend!

This hotel was more that we bargained for. We knew we want to have good access to public transportation, in a safe area of town. I chose this hotel because of location and price. The hotel staff was most accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. There was access to Hotel restaurant, we found it very pricey, but there were many local eateries nearby. I would definitely recommend this hotel to family or friends and if I ever go back I would more than likely stay there again.

Don't do it! Great staff but it's not worth all the HIDDEN FEES. Including parking plus parking tax, urban fee plus urban fee tax it costs $82.08/day plus the daily rate. The rooms are small typical boutique style but the bathrooms are reminiscent of a highway motel (rusting, mildew, lent balls in light fixtures). Also, this hotel is atop a very steep, acute angle hill!

Very friendly staff! The service is 5 star and I would stay here again.

As a frequent business traveler, the Stanford Court really exceeded my expectations. My room was very comfortable, clean and quiet, but what really set this hotel apart was the staff. From check in to check out every staff person was extremely friendly and helpful. The morning buffet was great and came included with my Orbitz reservation which I didn't realize. The service staff even packed up some extra things so I could have something for breakfast the next day before my planned early morning departure to the airport. When I did check out, the front desk had my receipt waiting for me as they knew I had reserved a cab to the airport - wow - really nice! I would've liked the bar area to be slightly more cozy, but the bar staff made up for it by being super pleasant and accommodating - it was a great place to grab a quick dinner and glass of wine at the end of my day. I'd definitely book this hotel again on a return trip to SF.

The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Excellent location near by everything. Although rooms a little small the bed was very comfortable

Is the Stanford Court trying too hard to be a Brooklyn hipster? It's actually very nice and a great location. Most signs are in the form of tablets, with frequent text-style abbreviations. As a boomer, I'm fine with the nearly-all digital approach, though I was disappointed not to hear the promised Metallica in the elevator (Plenty of other SF artists and bands, though). Dings for unannounced $20 "resort fee" for things that either should be free (lobby coffee, use of gym, wi-fi) or that I wouldn't use (bike rental. In SF.) Though that $20 coffee was not SBux, thank you for that. Further Dings for the only tea in the room being chamomile. Hotels are notorious for not giving you decent tea - if anything they give you Earl Grey which - news flash - not everyone loves. I carry my own tea. Staff were very nice and helpful.

I was very impressed with the staff and the facility. Although my friend had trouble with the hills, I loved it and plan on coming back soon. Close to a lot of nice places to eat.

Great location close to trolley and walking distance; good restaurants nearby; comfy bed; larger room; nice bar and paid breakfast; friendly staff;

Location and staff suited my stay. Concierge even helped me find a hair stylist within walking distance!

But cut the price on the breakfast buffet. Geez, it's breakfast not filet mignon.

Great location surrounded by a lot of things to do

Great location ,walking distance to China Town , hotel room is very clean and comfortable bed . Highly recommended........
