The hip Hotel G, opened in a 1908 building that once housed the famous Fielding Hotel, has all the trappings of a stylish San Fran stay. With a clean, smart design, local artwork and original historic features, this laid-back hotel sports a home-away-from-home vibe in the city’s trendy Union Square neighborhood. Guestrooms are done up in a muted color palette and feel sophisticated thanks to tufted grey headboards, soft Mascioni sheets and hand-dyed rugs, while quirky touches like yellow California-shaped accent pillows and Tivoli radios keep things light and playful. And all the mod cons are here, too (think: smart TVs and iPod docking stations). When hunger strikes, choose from three on-site restaurants: Klyde Café & Wine Bar for American bistro fare, 398 Brasserie for Euro-American dishes and Benjamin Cooper for the oyster bar and seasonal craft cocktails.
In the Area
Hotel G is a few blocks from San Francisco’s Union Square, which makes getting around the city a breeze, and the in-the-know staff can offer great recommendations for the city’s must-sees. We suggest visiting Chinatown and Fisherman’s Wharf, all just steps away. Don’t miss upscale restaurants like Eno Wine Bar for cheese and charcuterie plates with a glass of red, or Colibri Mexican Bistro for handmade tortillas and guac; it also has an excellent brunch menu.
How to Get There
No bell man, no real receptionist, no service and no security for this expensive hotel were you will only have the minimum to expect.
The room is large but the bath very simple and small... everything is a little and minimum ... towels, products, no sleeper, the light are low, well the “style” doesn’t excuse all...
You can hear inside the rooms next doors... the lifts are slow and dirty, there is nothing special at all in this hotel... even the team is a minimum as you have one reception individual that manages everything in the entrance, from the check in, the informations, the in and out moves, etc... this place is not a confortable place at all.
With “superior” room prices offered for more than 500 usd per night, especially in the union square area which is now even dirty and unsecured, this hotel is one of the worst quality/price experience ever.
Be sure that you are looking for this kind of basic industrial style ( as a poor excuse to justify that the place is a really bad deal).
Not even for fun....
No issues, bit pricey for what you get but still one of the cheaper ones. Close to Powell street and pretty central to Bart. Solid spot, rooms are small, bathrooms are nice. Won’t blow you away, but it’s clean and good spot to sleep.
If you want a great location, go to this hotel but do not expect anything espectacular. It's a simple hotel with a clean gym and overall nice facilities. Some features in the rooms can be taken care of, like que quality of some door knobs. They do not serve any type of breakfast, not even continental, coffee or bread
