How to Get There
My daughter and I stayed here for three nights while visiting the west coast. I was a little nervous about us staying by ourselves for the first time, but this hotel is in the PERFECT location for walking around San Francisco. It's situated right where Chinatown, Little Italy, and the Financial District meet. We were able to walk almost everywhere we wanted to explore and always felt safe. The hotel is very nice. The staff was super friendly and helpful - from the front desk to the housekeepers. And the breakfasts and receptions were delicious. We ate all three breakfasts in the executive lounge and enjoyed each one.
The location is fine - in China Town, but the hotel is poorly organized and not up to the standards I expect of a Hilton experience. I paid for a club floor room and ended up with one that wasn't on the club floor (but still paid the higher price) and that was after waiting more than 3 hours for check-in. Some staff were helpful and kind, but that didn't erase the impact of the poor organization on our stay.
We stayed at this hotel during our recent trip to SF and found the hotel centrally located and the staff helpful and welcoming. Prior to our trip we read horrible reviews about dirty windows and bad WiFi and did not think much of it. Post trip, I must agree with all those bad reviews. The windows are so dirty you can hardly see through them and WiFi is non-existent (even with Premium WiFi).
I paid more for a "Premium Bay View" room, but the windows were so dirty we could barely see out of them. Until they clean the windows pass on the "Premium Bay View" rooms because you will just be disappointed with the money you spent.
Pros: All the employees we dealt with were very nice. The hotel is in a great location for visiting China town and the piers. It was close enough to the public transportation to walk (approx. 1/2 mile) for easy access to the airport. Beautiful bar area. Executive lounge was nice, they served breakfast and had a happy hour in the evening.
Cons: The hotel needs updating. We paid extra for a executive bay view room and could not see out of the windows because they were so dirty. Save your money & stay in the lower floors and not bay view. The beds were hard as rocks. The Wifi is very slow. The walls are paper thin. We could everything our neighbors said. The elevators are very slow. They have 4 elevators and they stop at every floor. They should have 2 serving the lower floors and 2 serving the upper floors.
Our first morning we were woke up around 7:00 (after a late 4th of July night) by some kind of construction going on. It went on all day so we could not even rest during the day peacefully. I went to the front desk to complain and they did't even know anything was going on. They had to get ahold of one of the managers to find out that they were new wiring in. They must have known this was going to happen ahead of time and it would have been nice if they had told us about it.
