There is trail around a bay in front of the hotel. Location is quiet on the weekend since its next to several business buildings.
The comfort of the bed and the view from the window were the best part. . The location is near nothing so it is better for a business person than a family. There was no fridge but a wine cooler in the room.
Great room and value. Hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly. Hotel lobby was being renovated but it wasn't too noisy and the staff was extra accommodating. For being near the airport, you could not hear very many planes which was nice also. I would recommend it to anyone that is flying in and out of the airport, anyone in SF for business, or like us that was just in the city for the night (and doesn't want to pay over $200). There was nothing near the hotel, it is literally in a little business district which was a little inconvenient when it came to dinner with a toddler. The pool area was really messy.
Staff was friendly, facilities were very nice and clean. They had a fitness and business center free to use for guests. Very close to the airport. I found a dead bug in the bathtub so I didn't give a 5 star rating.
We have been staying here for 15 years.it is home away from home.
Was a great friendly environment !
Easy access to the freeway, not far from tourist spots, clean rooms, warm cookies at check in and out. I'm reserved two queen beds but I'm pretty sure they were full size beds.
Only 15 min from at and t park AC loud. Kept me up all night
Free parking, free wifi, free airport shuttle, comfortable beds and efficient staff were some of the highlights that we liked the most. But the hotel gives more of a business atmosphere than family although we did not have any problems with young kids. One needs to have a car to stay here as no shops in the vicinity. The GPS didn't show this hotel in the search and instead took us to the South hotel by the same name (more of a GPS problem I believe) but still a further clarity on their website would have been helpful.
not a good service the front desk act like we own tham something plus coffee machin stinked like its never been cleaned or checked
A quiet place to stay almost too quiet. My room had a beautiful view of city and water. The transportation service is very poor. A guest without a car is doomed. There's nothing close by I almost felt like I was in a deserted island.
Very nice room comfortable bed and very good value. The breakfast buffet at $18 was not a good value.
The hotel was very clean, staff was great, all was well, except the beds were not the normal queen size The "queen" bed was a full sized mattress. I have stayed in Hilton property hotels several hundred nights - often in queen beds. The queen suite did not have a queen bed.
Daily breakfast, Social Hour, Staff was helpful, free parking ( which we heard would be going away soon!) KIds channels were unavailable (mentioned this to frontdesk staff; no resolution attempted during our stay). No where about the significant remodeling mentioned - lobby, elevators were affected areas of the remodel. (having 1 working elevator was a huge inconvenience at this hotel) Mini mart was advertised, but not available due to remodeling No vending machines at this hotel
Breakfast was better than most others, selection of food was not just your basic cereal, bagel and coffee.
We love having the full kitchen when traveling with our young children. Staff went into our room and took my prescription pain meds. Also stole a pair of my shoes. Shoes were found in a staff's vehicle, but the manager is wanting to charge us to ship them back. Very disappointed. Our reservation was messed all up. We arrived late, after 6, we had checked in online. We changed and left, got back at midnight. We were told there was a crib in our room, there was not. We ended up trying to find a crib after midnight. Just overall a bad stay. I'll add that in the last 5 years, we have only stayed at Homewood. We have stayed at this one 4 previous times. Maybe never again!
It was nice to have breakfast and dinner offered for all guests and included in the cost. Having a full refrigerator, dishwasher, and small kitchen allowed us to prepare small meals for our child with allergies, and reheat leftovers with ease. The room was extremely small. The dishwasher couldn't even open all the way due to the refrigerator being in its way. The indoor pool area was not maintained and smelled of must and mold. There was no "hot" breakfast our first morning, and dinner was "out" by 5;30 the same night. The following morning they ran out of ketchup and coffee by 8am when serving hashbrowns. Disappointing to say the least.
The hotel staffs are very friendly and hospitable. The hotel offers complimentary dinner including beer and wine which was pretty good and tasty.
Hotel was clean We booked a room for two night with a king size bed upon arrival we were not told they didn't have a room for us instead sent us to a room with double beds wouldn't accommodate us claiming they had "no more rooms available "... next day had issues relocating our luggage to next room. Parking was absurd $70 dollars a night ?? Overrated
The location A 4 star Marriott hotel without room service? In San Francisco? Get your act together. What a dated American hospitality company. Will not stay there again and would not recommend this hotel to anyone
Location No swimming pool
They tried to steal my luggage when I first came in, took them over 4 hours to bring my stuff up. I said enough of this bs and went to go down myself and get all my stuff to find it hiding in a room away from everyone else while the guy at the front was telling me "it'll be there shortly were a little backed up". Then to top it all off I find $35 of charges from the hotel of stuff I never used. I've never been so disrespected by a hotel in my life. Shady workers I highly recommend you don't stay here.
The room was clean, the bed was amazing, location was walking distance to all things downtown, I felt safe with my young son, easy express checkout. No room service, for the money we spent I would've liked to see a free breakfast, the cost of parking is insane (it is SF though), no pool.
Location is excellent. Big hotel where you get lost. Looks and feel old, needs a major renovation.
No free wifi and same type of breakfast everyday
Great location great front desk people beautiful view Drink left in room from previous occupant
Really nice lobby, rooms where clean The wifi wasn't free, they charged you to use a computer for $.40 per minute. I really needed a workstation. No hot tube or pool for $400 per night. Will not go back.
The value for the money is really good! It was clean, spacious, well decorated. We ensured to get two beds in the bedroom and we got them!
Friendly accommodating staff. Great location, beautiful facility. The observatory level was cool, but packed, so much so we didn't stay to enjoy the view. I would recommend to a friend. Disappointed that I reserved a room with a larger bed and due to room availability we were moved to a double, which my wife and I were unable to share. We're by no means large people. It would have been nice to be able to park or rental without being charged extra, but that seems to be a norm in the city.
We enjoyed the Marriott Marquis hotel very much , but the valet only parking is a bit spends. Thank goodness there is another parking garage one block over. Y
Very friendly service. Very convenient location. Very good value.
Convince cleanness nice restaurant The expensive fee for flippin parking in your garage felt like we got robbed leaving S.f
The location was really the best and only great thing about this hotel. I still can't believe they don't have valet parking. At over $200 this place should be able to park your car. To have to pay over $100 to park my own car is the main reason I will never retrurn to this hotel
Parking very very very expensive
very poor internet connectivity despite high prices for it
Smoking room Too many conferences
dark room with a small window
The tavern in the hotel was fantastic and upscale; excellent choice. The room was spacious and comfortable for a family. The lobby and hallways are a bit sterile, could use more modern, less noisy design.
It was walking distance to the club we went to. The bathroom wasn't as clean as it could have been.
Location in the center Hotel very impersonnal, nothing in the bbathroom, such as shower cap, glass,or shower gel.
Room was really big and comfortable. Location is very convenient for shopping and entertainment in SF. Wifi is not included and has to be paid separately.
Clean luxurious room Lobby gets a bit busy as it has bar area open for all to use Room was not checked and had a few teething issues, but quickly resolved
I found the staff very friendly and accommodating. I would easily recommend the hotel to others.
The room was quite nice. The staff was very curteous and helpful. The location is convienent. The price was reasonable. The pool was only available as part of the health club which annoyed me.
They charge you extra for the health club, which is not that great - I found that to be offensive!
I was very happy with the hotel, location in the city, the service & the staff. I couldn't stay longer.
Location, friendly staff Thin walls, cold pool
The bathroom was nice with shower and tub. The indoor pool and Hot Tub were great for relaxing after visiting the sites. There was $25 per room charge for use of the pool/hot tub but this was small price to pay for this feature. Aggressive panhandlers all over the city.
location fees for everything including gym and even moving anything in the mini bar. grout in shower old and stained, toilet off center and wiggled.
Location Fees for Internet and gym. Additional fees for more than two adults.
Excellent location Good pillows, bed & linens I had a queen room, very small No remote control for the TV Long, long checkin/check out process. Gym in not complimentary
Beautiful interior design Expensive vehicle stay rate. Small room
The room was smaller than what I'm used to, but very comfortable. The bed was plush, with high-quality bedding. Good shower and toiletries, fast elevators, comfortable lobby The walls are quite thin, and because the toilets are vacuum toilets, they are louder than average toilets, and you can hear everyone flushing. The bathroom door is also a stylish (but not noise-blocking) glass barn door, so if you are sharing the room with someone, they will hear everything that is happening in the bathroom. There is a $25 fee to use the gym and pool, which I was not aware of when I booked the room.
Great stay at the Hotel Nikko, definitely pay $25 for access to the pool and spa.
Very luxurious and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially the management. When things went wrong, they were accommodating to benefit me for the inconveniences. Upon checking in, they didn't have our room available until the next day. Not sure how that even happens, but after talking to the manager, he miraculously was able to get our room. I had an allergic reaction to the laundry detergent they use on the bed sheets and my eyes swelled up. I was told that if you have allergies, you need to call in advance to make sure they wash the bedding with hyper-allergenic detergent (they normally use Dawn). For the inconveniences, they did comp me my room service.
The view is amazing in the linens were very comfortable Valet parking is a bit steep in price
Grand, historic, luxurious I could hear everything from my room. Housekeeping, doors slamming, neighbors... I also think free wifi at hotels should be standard at this point - as it is at most hotels.
Location Parking at $65 a nite is outrageous There were no blankets in the room so I asked for some they came an hour later. I had to call 3 times to get service. Wifi was $14 a day not free. Coffee in the room was poor. U would think they could provide quality coffee. Paper was delivered to some rooms but not ours
I originally was trying to book this hotel via the QANTAS website however they had problems, so I rang the hotel direct and they were most helpful. Not only did they book me in, but they beat the original price and converted it for me to $AUD for my small brain. I drove to SFO from LAX - on arrival bell hop service was excellent, didn't miss any bags or jackets that were in my car. Stayed in the main building - Fairmont Queen room Clean and tidy Free WiFi BathTub Excellent staff Late checkout Food selection and room service Tonga room is a must see Location very central to anywhere you'd like to be in SFO The main building although grand, is a little dated. The refurbished rooms are good, but the particular room I was in the door didn't fully open because the wall gets in the way, so for room service the trolley couldn't be wheeled in, food had to be carried in from the door, and there wasn't really any table to put the food on, only the writing desk or the fold out mini bar. I had to call for slippers
Beautiful hotel, great service. Staff very helpful, especially Scott at front desk
Hotel employees treat you like royalty. Beautiful details all over the hotel. Classic history all over! Every president over the past 120 years has stayed at the hotel! First Fairmont Hotel in the world, sets the standard for all Fairmont hotels! VERY expensive parking. The hotel contracts with a parking service and valet is the only option. Prepare to spend over $70 a night to park at the hotel, but this is the only option unless you want to walk miles and miles.
Location and setting Service was awful - restaurant had several issues.
Comfortable beds. Great location. Nice staff. Beautiful decor. Poor soundproofing- we could hear everything next door. $65 parking and $14 wifi. "Courtyard view" misrepresents the huge noisy cooling type towers. Breakfast was 1 1/2 hour late. Dinner in the restaurant was loud and only mediocre.
The staff, rooms, comfy not over the top stuffy Expensive
Reputation was indeed lived up to ...better than I expected Cost of overnight parking
Room was large & I only had a queen. Bed, pillows & sheets all very good. Hotel is dated but some would call that charming. My robe had stains on it.
Location and view from room
great location rooms are too dated. needs major renovation. coffee bar in the middle of the lobby is too tacky for a luxury hotel if it is one.
The feeling, atmosphere of the hotel.
Very convenient location.
location! slight decripitude
Its location was prime reason for choice Drinks and food too expensive
The desk manager weas excellent Strike is bad poor service at breakfast
the checkin was excellant, The room was great. The vallet service was very accomadating. called downstairs to get closet door fixed and the man who answered the phone was very rude.
Great room in Tower section,with great view & very comfortable beds. Also very helpful concierge named Jeff. We had to remind them on two occasions to clean our room. On the day before check-out,our room was not cleaned or refreshed. This was really the only negative,apart from the fact that the drinks in the main bar are quite expensive.
The breakfast buffet and the beds were excelent. The site location is great and the building has a great history The service staff at the breakfast room was not good.
Games room and outside space No restaurant but they offered discounts to other restaurants.
Great location! Very close to pier 39. Comfortable bed and pillow. Soundproof was rather poor. I can hear people walking by my room and chatting very clearly.
Great location, accommodation comfortable, staff helpful and professional
location was very good. people were very friendly
Hilton Honors perks made a good place great - $10 to upgrade to full breakfast and a suite. Good facilities, helpful staff
Good location and good nice hotel
We only had a short stay - stopover of 2 days as we were on route to Canada. Close proximity to Union Square / Cable Car and city shopping and ofcourse the easy access from SFO Airport via the BART. $10 return trip each was a steel. Hotel staff excellent. Room was perfect - high floor with views and the bestest 2 x Queens - very very comfortable Not a thing - was just perfect and I would stay again, actually I would go out of my way to stay there again
The staff were very friendly and helpful without being intrusive.Received a free upgrade to a suite without even asking which really made our trip! I have already recommended this hotel to colleagues! No
Convenient location, clean room with a comfortable bed.
Its in a great location downtown.
The staff at the Hotel was extremely helpful and accommodating. Especially your front desk reservation clerck and the bell desk.
Good location, friendly staff
We loved the 23rd floor and the view from our room. We could see the parade and crowds from above instead of joining in on the giants parade. We also felt the bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet with relatively little street noise. We were not happy with the additional 120.00 U.S. added to our bill. According to Booking.com, we were quoted 798.00 for the 4 nights. On our print out, it stated "total costs" 798.00. Nowhere did it state that there would be an additional 120 added. We would never use your website again.
The staff was awesome and we used the regency club for the first time. Glad we upgraded for it because we loved it! Overall a great stay! For the price that you pay, the gym should should have a more equipment.
Breakfast The receptionist lied to me about the parking fee Later the hotel charge me 75 USD for overnight parking
Location excellent, room spacious, staff friendly. An excellent stay! Price a bit high, bathroom could use renovation (but was perfectly functional). A light in the closet would be very helpful.
The Staff! The Food Selection and quality was Very Bad, for a hotel that size and location. The $60.00 Plus a Night to valet a Car Is Crazy,
The hotel atrium remains spectacular. Great location in financial district, overlooking the bay, a walking distance from Fisherman's Wharf, but be aware that many restaurants and coffee shops in the immediate vicinity of the hotel are closed on Sunday. Bathrooms are small and outdated. Overnight parking is $34.00.
Downtown you're close to everything and the hotel view was amazing. You're still downtown, so you walk out and it's a lot of homeless and the streets smell of urine, bad. The hotel staff is in no hurry for anything. Toom service took 1.5-2 hours and we even had a package delivered and they never bothered to bring it up. After three hours we told them forget it we'll get it ourselves. Cleaning staff is super nice. They were doing construction there so don't bother trying to nap during the day, because they were jack hammering the lobby. For the money I think there's better.
The hotel was beautiful and it was clean
The location couldn't be more convenient, just steps away from the Embarcadero BART station, and very close to everything off of Market and the Embarcadero. The hotel itself is large and strangely appointed in some ways in the lobby (huge sculptures, dated music, pods of work or social spaces set out in the midst of an overwhelming visual scale reminiscent of Soviet architecture). That said, the staff was so welcoming and pleasant, and the rooms are clean, new, and quite comfortable. I did not try room service, but everything I experienced was worth the very affordable rate. I'll be back.
Location is great, large facility for meetings Lack of aesthetics, just tired and drab. Parking is just ok
The lobby area inside us very beautiful, yet it's not that unique anymore compare to some of the newer hotels. Location is very good, right access from ferry building and many good restaurants. Room needs renovation. Restroom is small, couldn't find light switch when we get in the room. Booked king bed room and was given a double bed room, staff told us nothing they could do. They did give us some credit but only end up buying some water, because there is none in the room.
Very comfortable bed, great location, friendly staff.
Excellent location with great facilities in this hotel. It's really easy to travel to other famous sightseeings and restaurants in this area are really good. A little bit noise whether stay in high floor or in low floor, and the bathroom is too small for a 4 star hotel.
The room was beautiful and the staff was exceptionally friendly. The location was convenient. We liked everything.
very good location and excellent pld decor Allows animals so we have dogs barking a couple of nights. Regular noice from the plumbing also disturbed us
Nice to stay in a piece of history. Very convenient location for MUNI/BART. Rooms appointments very nice, beds great. Main lobby atrium is stunning. Well-trained, personable staff. Coffee/wifi in room would be nice, but that's unfortunately the nature of the beast (Hol Inn Express does that, not most upscale). I went with two hyperactive twin boys, and though not an ideal hotel for kids in most ways, the staff was very patient and accommodating with them. I'd say I wish it were a better value, but really next to what else what available in the area it was a better bang for the buck than most.
Really cool amenities,close to everything you need.Room service was nice and really cool views. I didn't like that after driving two hours up to SF,having reserved my room almost a week in advance they informed me my room was not ready,then couldn't give me an answer as to why or how long it would take to clean.Luckily friends who were getting married in the city had their room so we stayed there and waited almost an hour and a half until they called me to tell me it was finally ready then didn't offer much to try and make the situation better
location near attraction false fire alarm at 12:30am
Location Bathrobes, slippers, and WATER included wow! Portable led lighted mirror. So convenient. Staff was really attentive to our needs and accommodating Very clean Booked a double bed superior room through AMOMA.com and they offered a king superior at the front desk. Definitely appreciated that. Spacious 2 ice vending machines on every floor Nothing.
I liked the overall appearance - the old world charm with today's amenities - great pool! the servic nothing
Decor, comfort and staff interactions. I did not sleep all night due to an event at the hotel where people were slamming doors and talking in the halls all night.
Loved the central location and the historical ambiance of the hotel.
The kids especially loved the indoor pool and the staff in the pool area were extremely gracious and helpful.
Fantastic SF landmark...we never left the Hotel.
The hotel is stunning and the staff is so nice. I loved the history and the elegance of the place. I liked everything.
We had a view even from the 9th floor. Very clean and cozy. Staff was really kind. No mini fridge :(
location - Pressured toliet caused loud, frequent rattling sounding like a fire alarm in the middle of the night. I told management and they don't/couldn't fix it . - $38 per night "resort fee" for no real services. A true rip off.
Great location Restaurant can be improved, i. e. choice & prices slightly too high
Location staff and cleanliness No room service or mini bar
I loved the view and staff was extremely friendly and the location great. Bed was very comfortable and and room was nice and clean. Mabye a lil upgrade on the appliances other than that it was great. I think for the resort fee it should have came with a little more amenities.
View was great, staff was very friendly, and room was very clean. $58 for over night parking is outrageous, because of that I will not stay here again. Also, $20 for wifi? For the price you're paying that should definitely be included. We had to ask twice for a crib to be sent up to the room, that was a little disappointing when I had two small children to get to bed upon arrival. Also would have been nice to have a mini fridge included in the room. When traveling with kids it's very convenient to have a fridge to store their milk, snacks, etc
Location. Proximity to public transportation. Doors, fixtures show age, wear and tear. Facilities fee (which I assume were adjusted for SPG Platinum members)
You had to pay for WiFi and the restaurant had a very limited menu.
Poor accommodations. Rude staff.
Comfortable and clean. Good location No room service
Location was nice for exploring the city. Room was clean/comfortable. NO INTERNET at this hotel... In the modern age, it's ridiculous that wifi/high speed internet is not included in the cost of the hotel when you purchase ahead of time. On top of that, I asked about wifi when I was checking in, and the lady told me we could get internet with an OPTIONAL ~$35 PER night fee, that included internet and other services like bike rentals. We didn't want to spend this, so it made sense that I couldn't connect to any wifi from my hotel room. When I checked out, they said they had charged us for the fee, and that it was required, despite the fact that we'd never connected to the internet. Outrageous that this wasn't just in the price of the hotel from the getgo... Don't bother with this place until they get with the modern age.
The room they put us in was very small. There was no refrigerator, no microwave, nothing that would make the stay comfortable or say luxury. Plus the parking cost and facilities fees are ridiculously high.
Friendly staff, great location (walking distance to most attractions), comfy beds and updated overall. Needed spa after some gruelling walks (need to be fit to get around) or simply jump on cable cars outside hotel ;). Although We found city pricy, hotel food offerings were excessive to say the least (no room service either?)Management has to know within walking distance are some great options for meals that are easier on your wallet.
The location is wonderful, the bed was good No one answered the valet parking phone three days in a row. No room service. A beer glass sat in the hallway for two days without being picked up. Kitschy "hipster" feel.
Beautiful hotel! Friendly staff, clean rooms, super comfy beds, great shower/bathroom set up! Would stay here every time I came to SF!
I liked the lady at check in helping resolve an issue with billing. Somehow, the hotel reservations people decided I should pay for an extra night when I had cancelled that night the previous week. The lady at check in was very helpful and was able to resolve the issue, but I was disappointed I had the issue in the first place. It was not clear to me why this happened. The room was nice - but quite expensive in my opinion.
The location and our room size No complaints
Location Mandatory "urban bundle fee" of $20+ per night, even if you don't use or want the services. Housekeeping was bad -- there was a half full highball glass in the hallway outside our room for our entire stay. When we arrived on a December evening the room temperature was set to 54 degrees with cold air blasting in. Overall not a friendly or welcoming environment, unfortunately.
GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE, EVERYONE IN THE LOBBY WAS VERY HELPFUL AND KIND. HOTEL WAS CLEAN, AND PROVIDES A FRESH SMELL AS YOU WALK IN. I LOVED THE WATER BOTTLES TO GET PURIFIED WATER AS YOU WALK IN OR LEAVE.
Steve, one of the staff members, was very friendly and helpful. Aside from that, nothing. Nearly everything. The rest of the staff seemed unimpressed with the hotel themselves and in fact mocked the hotel for intentionally using "false advertising" to lure customers into staying there. Upon arriving we received a "complimentary upgrade," which off the batt seemed wonderful, but once we entered the room we were appalled; we couldn't even imagine what our original room would have looked like. When I called down to complain about the striking difference from the pictures on the website the woman at the front desk replied that what I saw online was called "photoshop." The room was spacious, but empty; there was no headboard, safe or amenities. The hotel offered nothing, but rooms and was not the kind of place you looked forward to returning to at the end of a long day. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone and I would never return myself. For a couple hundred dollars more I could have stayed at the nicest hotel in San Francisco. This hardly ranks with the top hotels in the city, despite its high prices and false four star advertising online.
Very comfortable bed. Free wifi. Good gym. Very friendly staff and they sell oddities water for $1 a bottle. A little bit dated interior
Window view was loud but nice, room was clean and service was very good. Nice location. Jeffery was a great bartender showing professionalism with an intoxicated female needing assistance at the bar Urban tax fee is a shady charge that was not explained at check in, The fee is for bike rental and internet, yet the Wi fi was listed as free and you would be insane to ride a bike down the hills. I had to argue to get it removed.
Stanford Court hotel was in a terrific location. Cable car intersection right out the front door was super cool. The lobby and bar were upscale and clean. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a boutique hotel in San fransisco. The room size was a little small for the money, and you could hear everything from the hallway and surrounding rooms.
While the yellow carpet in the halls is a bit dated and worn, the rest of the Stanford court is updated, quirky, and fun. The staff is great, and the location is only half a block from the top of nob hill. Great weekend escape.
Exceptional customer service. Unclean.
Under construction, noisey
Location The whole place smelled dusty due to the construction-- I booked a 300 dollar room and they said that there was no running water--- moved me into another room with no view but not any cheaper
Location. Under much needed renovation. Would have been nice to know at time of booking. Air filter so plugged air wouldn't flow. Toilet wouldn't stop running. Blood on comforter. No coffee maker in room. Not at all what you'd expect from a Hyatt. Staff was great when we told them about issues.
The rooms, meeting facilities, customer service Nothing
The hotel was very clean and the staff was very pleasant and polite. We were staying for one night before having to be at the UCSF children's hospital the next day and we all slept like babies. The beds were extremely comfortable and the linen was very soft overall we had a great stay.
Location Valet and bell hops were friendly and helpful. First check attempt was not successful due to a power outage that only affected the computers. Employee was also rude and really should find a job that does not involve working with people. Attempted to order food to go in the restaurant, after waiting for 25mns while the waiter was watching a football game we gave up and left. Rooms were dated and dingy. Would not recommend as a platinum passport member.
Rooms had beautiful view overlooking the hotel Lobby. Size of the rooms are nice. Waited for shuttle over 45 min.. a shuttle from a different Hotel was nice enough to drive us .at 2 am needed maintenance ac was not working .. bathroom was not clean toilet seats for dirty from the last person there.
Room layout, beds, a lot of outlets, very clean HUGE construction project in the middle atrium, hence noise and no restaurant. Bathroom amenities very, very limited - need to ask for basic things like Q-tips and other (yes, they are available - a nice list in the room) but having only soap and shampoo in the room is not sufficient
Beautiful hotel with strong drinks! No nightlife near by.
we didnt like much. they didnt include on the web that the hotel is going through massive renovations. pool was closed which we wanted to use so badly during our short vacation. The gym was also out of service. it was very disappointing of an experience.
Food at 360 was great. Beds were comfy. No microwaves in room. No liquid coffee creamer, just powder.
evberyone was great and very helpful the location was perfect our view was a wall
The room was very comfortable, in particular the bed and pillows were comfy.
Location location location The hallways have an unpleasant odor; however, the room did not - thank goodness.
Excellent as usual. Staff very helpful with an early check-in.
Sight seeing and shoping No
Location..decor...staff...service...all were great!!!
Location to Fisherman's Wharf Walls were a little thin. Could hear the people below us. I was really excited about the rate I got for this hotel compared to other websites so I told my sister about it. She booked a room at this hotel for the following week and got a rate $110.00 cheaper than mine, higher floor and better view, so I was a little bummed about that.
The staff was friendly. Concierge restaurant recommendations on the money. The location was excellent. Rained the entire weekend-but no matter the hotels had huge umbrellas for their quests. Lighting could have been better when you entered the room (outside bathroom.) Prefer bathroom sink outside of bath/shower area. Allows two people to get ready at same time.
Location and comfort
Quirky rooms decor & staff Lack of facilities no hotel bar or estaurants although there are independent providers attached to hotel. No pool.
Big positives: cleanliness and size of room, very cheery staff, newer hotel. Somewhat kitschy decor that was also endearing . Cool rough hewn wood beams in room. As a former San Franciscan touristy Fisherman's Wharf wouldn't be my first choice but appreciated quietness of area. Far cleaner, quiet than Union Square or SOMA. Better value than Union Square, much nicer than motels on Lombard. Heard some guests making noise in hall in middle of night.
Convenient to airport n hwy Tight room
Parking is $25 Come on. Also, Westin withheld $100. from my card for "incidentals" wi/o notification. The cheesy glasses in the room were carefully encased in cheap plastic wrap with the prepared label "SPG Members" affixed to the bottom of each glass, alerting the non-SPG Members that they would be charged for unwrapping the household plastic wrap from the glass if they dared to venture to drink from actual glass rather than from the plastic UNlabeled "glass" next to the special SPG one. The tub drained poorly. This hotel is full of itself and not much else in terms of service and ambiance.
Airport Shuttle, Our room as next to the elevators and could hear them going up and down. We should have requested a new room but we arrived late and had to leave very early the next day to catch our flight.
The hotel was clean & pretty well maintained. The staff were not helpful or friendly. The pool was freezing. The wifi was $10 and parking was very expensive. I was hoping for a nice quick pleasant overnight stay. It was quick but not so pleasant.
We liked having a free shuttle to the airport as well as the indoor pool. It was great for our one year old to swim and get some energy out before a cross country flight. Staff were very accommodating and provided us with a crib for the room. The hotel restaurant was very expensive, but this is not surprising for San Francisco.
The staff was very helpful and the conference rooms and facilities were very nice and what you would expect from the Westin. Room was clean. Good location First thing I was thoroughly disappointed in was the pillows. After traveling I was tired so I immediately fluffed up the pillows to lay down for a short nap. But the pillow cases sounded and felt like paper!!! And 3'outnofnthen4 pillows were so lumpy and flat, not one firm pillow and that combined with uncomfortable pillow cases I woke up with a neck ache. Bed was uncomfortable . And the sound level in our room was so LOUD that we were woken several times by people walking by talking and each room to either left or right we heardbeverybtime the toilet flushed and every conversation or slammed door. Very disappointed in my stay this time. Better soundproofing the rooms..it felt like paper thin walls!
Nicest hotel staff I've encountered in a very long time. They were incredibly accommodating to myself, my husband, and my 2 year old daughter. We had an overnight stay for a connecting flight and the hotel is extremely close to the airport with a very quick and frequent airport shuttle bus. We happened to be stuck there with a delayed flight on my daughters 2 year birthday and when the staff found out they gave us an extended check out and treated the birthday girl to pasta and a birthday brownie. It was a really pleasant surprise for a tired and traveling family. Thank you Westin!!!
We liked the overall vibe and style. We didn't like the inconsistent customer service and the room vibrated from the restaurant's exhaust fan. (We moved to another room.)
Through Expedia I got a great deal to stay at the Westin for 3 nights and it was great! I stayed over the Thanksgiving weekend and even though it was a holiday the staff was extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. Nice shower, awesome beds and it's close to the bay so you can just walk outside for a beautiful veiw and walk. Also has a free shuttle and is a short walk to the BART station!
The location is the only good thing about this hotel Customer service was horrible after a long flight
Hotel provided shuttles every 15 minutes to the airport. They dropped you off at your gate. Very nice.
Clean, spacious, and well laid out. Friendly and helpful staff. Airport shuttle was a disaster. No shock absorbers. Rough ride.
Expensive mini bar, breakfast etc
Our room on the 16th floor which had a great view was right next to the elevator motors. One or more of the elevator motors had bad bearings or a worn armature as there were a constant hum and winding sound similar to a low police siren. We could not move due to the Hotel being full.
Old & tired Tired
I loved the large room! The space was great. Loved the airy feel.
The room and hallways where dark, the bathrooms are in bad shape (old and rusty), the tv was small and didn't have on demand. It used to be THE PLACE TO STAY in SF... Not anymore...needs a remodel urgently.
Room was nothing special the lobby and bar were cool The room was was average and bathroom was very old decore
The staff and location were both excellent, the bar is also fun (and the reason I knew about the hotel to begin with). There sure are a lot of interesting chairs around! Room service was prompt and the food was tasty. The bed is comfortable and the rooms have pretty good noise control. The rooms are in dire need of updating. We stayed in a studio so the size was good, but things just seemed old. The walls needed touch up paint, the bathtub was peeling (about a 10'' section was missing plaster), the grout was stained, the hair dryer must be from 1985, the thermostat is old making it hard to control room temperature, the faucet was probably really awesome 20 years ago, but now it is difficult to get it in the "off" position, not good in a state experiencing a drought.
Classy Good room service food Hidden cost for valet parking - $52 a night Hidden cost for a 50 cent aux cord - $100 deposit Hidden cost for more than 5 glasses ordered for guests House keeping failed to clean my room one day when I called them before leaving for the day specifically asking them to tidy up No Hot tub or pool
The bed was very comfortable. The room was dark with the curtains pulled closed. I stayed at the Clift this past weekend with my wife for a "staycation" away from the Oakland grind we call our normal lives. A few concerns with the Clift Hotel. When we arrived we were unsure about how the valet worked since there are no signs or "red jackets" (they wear black). We had to circle the block and call to find out what the deal was. It's also expensive, $52+ tax per night. Once we were in the Hotel we were told that our room wasn't ready, which was completely fine since we arrived 3 hours prior to check in time. We happily checked our bag and went for a stroll around union square. The problem is that the woman at the counter said we should expect a phone call with in the hour when our room was ready. We waited the hour and then another hour. No call. We then returned to the Hotel at 3pm and were told by the same women that it "should be ready within the hour."This would take us up to check in time...Finally at 4pm we complained and a manager upgraded us to a Jr. Suite and promptly gave us the keys. Sales Training: under promise and over deliver, not the other way around. Finally we arrive in our room and its pretty nice. It was on the 15th floor and the view was pretty urban SF high life. We were happy. The tub and painted surfaces were chipping and sup par. apparently this room costs $450+ per night, If I paid that I expect a little more attention to detail and quality. We dined at the Velvet Room, the Hotel's restaurant. We were offered a cold and breezy table next to the hallway leading to the bar but were happily seated in a lovely booth when we requested that. Dinner was delicious. The Redwood Room, their high shelf bar, is always crowded and all seating is reserved for $350+ bottle service. The common areas are nice, warm, and cozy. The room is three star. The overall experience is ok, we'll try another place next month and report back.
Superb location right in the heart of San Francisco's Union Square area, excellent restaurants and shopping nearby. Beautifully decorated room that was quiet and serene. Standard room king was quite small. No room for more than a couple.
Great food, staff and service. Valet took a little long.
The location was very convienent. I chose to park down the street and save $30 for over night parking. Nice pillows and comfy bed. This hotel is really small the room was giving me an allegric reactions I could not breath, until we forced the window open. The shower curtain and shower smelled really bad. That was gross. I will not be staying here again.
We should get a discount for the noise inconvenience.
Lovely room with plenty of plugs for laptops, etc. Refrigerator and coffee maker. Room also had separate "dressing table" area AND a full bathroom; perfect for a couple! Parking rates absurd. Found a much cheaper garage on our own.
Bedding, bed, pillows & nice bathroom. Was after hours & our request for room service was still met. Nothing.
The staff were very professional .
Gym is decent and has a great view Tv reception was poor. The bed was a a little stiffer than I'd like
Very stylish, perfect location, hotel staff was very very helpful and courteous. Appreciated the free internet. Room lighting could have been better. Thermostat was a off and room was a bit chilly unless we used a high setting.
Everyone from the valet attendant, bellman, and front desk was beyond helpful and attentive. Even on a stormy rainy SF day, they were warm and ever inviting to me. They got me a room on the 27th floor with an amazing view of union square during the holiday season. I highly recommend. Also, the bathroom had great lightening and everything was very clean. Location simply can't be topped. Parking is a choice of valet between $41 around the corner and $60 front door. Wifi is also now FREE. The mattress sheet wasn't fully tucked in but everything else made up for a minor oversight.
Most of it is the location and the good value The service was not great very unpersonal
Since its remodel they have great rooms
The staff was great specially the greeters at the door and baggage handlers Location location location
Staff was good. Our lunch experience at the hotel was very nice because the staff went out of their way for our 13 year old who was celebrating a birthday. We had people overhead who made who disturbed us for well over an hour. After calling the front desk to complain it stopped about 30 minutes after our call.
The staff was exceptional. ALL of them. Not much. The spa was priced really high so we ended up making other accommodations.
They need to add a salon that has someone there to do hair blow outs for customers staying at the Ritz.
Customer service was outstanding.
Everyone was amazing! Jonathan the bartender, patrick the bellman, everyone! They made my boyfriends birthday very special. This is the best hotel in SF. Thank you to the entire staff. Nothing because everything was awesome!
Nice view beds very comfortable.
We needed a place to stay near SFO that provided free airport shuttle. I found this hotel on Kayak, and while it was more than I had planned to spend for one night, it was worth it! The bed was so very comfortable - I didn't want to get out of it in the morning! The room was exquisitely appointed and the staff was very accommodating despite there being a very boisterous party off the lobby - which spilled into the lobby at times. The front desk staff handled a group of small children who were taking items from the Market Place behind the desk extremely well! Thank you so much! More than I wanted to spend for a hotel room.
The hotel feels like it has all of the upgraded tech and decor a geeky guy like myself want out of a hotel. It was clean, close to the airport, and didn't have any noise coming from any highways or streets. We arrived late in the evening after a long flight to find our room wasn't ready. (at 12:30am) The front office manager said the floors had been cleaned that day, so it might feel a bit damn in the halls. Feeling tried we said Okay, and got our room key and went right to our room. The first thing we see is carpet fans scattered all over the room with every moveable piece of furniture stacked on our beds. It took another 45min to get our room switched for one that didn't have any fans, and we were questioned like we made the entire thing up. Only issue we had was the miscommunication from the office manager regarding the overnight parking. I was told it would only be $14 and I would have to use the parking machine in the garage. Well, the machine charges $20 for overnight, and I had actually already been charged $14 for parking on my room bill. So i paid for parking twice...We had to leave for the airport or I would have fought it.
They charged extra fees.
Good location. Rooms are clean and well kept. My friends left 4-5 messages for me but when I checked, I was told there were no messages left for me. So I didn't get to meet up with my friends. Pretty bad.
We stayed at the executive level and the amenities included with that were nice. Staff was friendly and helpful. The lobby is pretty run down and dated. The carpet in the lobby is very worn and dirty. The room itself was extremely clean and modern.
Quick check in and out, courteous staff, and the price was right. However, hotel shuttle took almost 30 minutes to make the full trip between the Hilton and the international terminal. The bedding had some small stains and bathroom was not entirely clean.
The hotel is very good, it has clean facilities and friendly staff. I recommend the hotel for anyone that needs to stay around the SF airport area. I did not like the nightly parking fee. It should be included in the room price.
The fire alarm went off at 5:00am and we had to walk down many flights of stairs. When we got to the lobby we were told it was a false alarm. After returning to the room to get some sleep before an international flight, the alarm kept going off every 15 minutes or so for the next 3 hours. This made for a stressful start to our vacation.
Location, close to SFO. Self parking fee. Looks a standard in the Bay Area.
Great price and nice accomodations for a decent price. Enjoyed the executive floor and it's amenities which were superb for what we paid. We will stay again if we're ever in need of an SFO airport hotel
I loved the location to the airport, amazing views, modern vibe and look. Friendly staff! Big tvs!! Dinner was expensive in the hotel. For what it was I should have eaten at McDonald's. $100 mistake.
