Stanford Court San Francisco

Awesome location of the hotel, nice and clean room, and kind staff. The only down side of my experience was that I had to pay an additional $30+ per night to get a newly renovated room or else you’ll get an old room on the first floor on top of paying the $22 a night amenities fee. I also received an email from Orbitz saying I have free Continental breakfast for two for my stay which was not redeemable and was just given a $10 discount or 15% off my order instead by the front desk even after showing them the actual email.

I’ve been using this hotel for my weekend rendezvous. It doesn’t fail to amaze me .i felt the difference on their renovation. The hotel is pretty much accessible , the cable car stop is just adjacent to the front of the hotel and this will bring you to the great tourist destinations in San Francisco.

We were 1st gay couple to have our commitment ceremony here in 2006. They were wonderful to us then & ever since. We’ve.been back many times through some of their changes. We miss Fournous Oven & lemon soufflé pancakes. Some of the same staff roll out the red carpet for us, upgrade us & treat us well. They are working on more changes currently. We look forward to coming back.

Great staff! Great location! Great experience! Great stay!

Stayed at the Stanford Court during JP Morgan Biotech conference, which was nice since it's away from the craziness of Union Square during this meeting. Fitness center is very nice and has some virtual training simulators that are a nice touch. It's a bit of a hike up/down Powell St, which I liked, but if you're not a fan of that you can Uber quickly. Staff was very friendly and WiFi throughout the hotel was fast and reliable. Rooms are being updated, and mine was one of the newer ones but heard from others that the older rooms need some work. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

Great room and service, excellent price. We will stay again!

I have wanted to stay here for many years and they did not disappoint. Great room, great location!!

The fact that they were so dog friendly was nice! The room was very clean and quiet! not common for a big city hotel. The price was right!

Staff was very pleasant rooms were clean bed was comfortable. The hotel just got a recent renovation of the lobby which made it nicer than it was before.

Friendly, very helpful about how to get around town. Close to almost everything. Short uber ride if not close enough, will definitely go back.

The hotel had some renovations done. Located almost on the top of the hill. Very accessible, you have to take the trolley 🚋 or the bart system and you can see the north and south of the whole city. The hotel is very clean and room has an ample space.

The lobby and valet area of the Stanford Court is undergoing renovations which take from the overall quality of the visit. It's located in a great area with cable car lines directly outside.

I knew beforehand the hotel is undergoing renovations. So I will not comment on the construction site look of the lobby. However, renovations should not translate into mediocrity. The breakfast is a joke and the offerings are below what you find in a free buffet at a budget property. I can't believe decent pastries, a clean toaster and ice to refrigerate yogurt can't be located in SF. To add insult to injury, tables are not bussed and we had to clean our own while the lady sitting at the register was busy entering tips (yes, it is not free!) on her computer. We had to pay an amenity fee at checkout. When we asked why, we were told it was for the free coffee in the lobby and the paying (not free) internet service. The only helpful staff was housekeeping, Overall a disappointment and inexcusable neglect.

The hotel lobby, entrance and restaurant are currently under renovation, which would be ok if they told you about it ahead of time. Long walk to reception desk and elevator (I was with my 87 year-old mom who is in great shape, and it was difficult and inconvenient for her). Rooms are incredibly shabby, though spacious, and lack the simplest of necessities. Terrible lighting, no make-up mirrors, inadequate and clumsy clothes storage. The worst is the daily $22 "facility fee" for in-room water (they provide you with bottles which you have to fill yourself on the first floor!), use of their gym and coffee which you make yourself in your room. A huge disappointment. Will never stay there again.

A little anoying not told it was under construction when I booked. Good location tho. Only there for one night so it was good but wouldn't want to stay longer

Room house keeper Chinese lady lazy n they are only Chinese talk each other to Chinese durning working hour.

Nice, clean great location to everything. Very comfortable beds.

We made reservations months in advance and thought the hotel could have let us know that their dining facilities and bar were nonexistent due to remodeling! Alternate arrangements were not acceptable. Disappointing!

We loved our stay! It's close to everything. The hills were no problem to walk.

Rooms were a bit dated but clean and most areas were impacted by the current renovation which we were not aware of prior to arriving. The location was great and staff were friendly enough.
