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.
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.
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.
The view is amazing in the linens were very comfortable Valet parking is a bit steep in price
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
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.
Reputation was indeed lived up to ...better than I expected Cost of overnight parking
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.
Location and setting Service was awful - restaurant had several issues.
Beautiful hotel, great service. Staff very helpful, especially Scott at front desk
The staff, rooms, comfy not over the top stuffy Expensive
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
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.
Very helpful staff. Under renovations
Beautiful hotel! Friendly staff, clean rooms, super comfy beds, great shower/bathroom set up! Would stay here every time I came to SF!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 room was great and the bedding was fantastic. The staff was great, very helpful. Location was ideal. Since we were there during the renovation, there were no shops, etc. They had shampooed the carpet in the halls the day we arrived and there remained a wet rug smell throughout our stay.
Location is good, close to everything I booked this reservation months in advance for a large group, and still, upon check-in there was alot of miscommunication and confusion about the reservation (how many rooms, names on the reservation, etc). Staff was not warm or particularly helpful at all, there was an obvious lack of hospitably and willingness to help that you receive at most hotels. The hotel itself is average, its very old and outdated inside, the walls are thin so u hear conversations next door, and the rooms are small. There were very limited hours for the restaurant/lounge downstairs, and overall was just someolace you'd go to sleep and thats it. It really was just ok. Many other hotels in the area that offered more for the price. I wouldnt stay there again.
Decent location, nice hotel. Don't like the weekend charge for "top of the mark" tourist trap.
A great location and views A little pricey
Great place to stay if you want to be treated like royalty at a very reasonable price. We highly recommend staying here and also having drinks at the Top of the Mark. Excellent views of the "city by the bay" and the music and service is awesome! Do yourself a favor and stay here. We do every year for almost 20 years. You won't regret it!
The location of this hotel is great with walking access to the waterfront, Union Square, cable cars, and public transport. The staff was excellent and very attentive. The room was everything we wanted, plus a great view. The restaurant had a good selection. The night club was really fun. We would definitely stay here again.
Comfortable room and good location. Noise level was fine despite being on the same street as the cable car. A bit run down in appearance and small old elevators. Poor customer service upon check. We were given a hard sale to sign up for hotel program upon arrival.
Nice people. This place would be great, but it need a renovation. It just looks like it hasn't been kept up in some time. Needs some fresh paint and some updates. It's in an area that not much is going on also
Room service was good, bed, pillows & frette Sheets were excellent. Dark bathroom, dated room in general...for the money I prefer the Fairmont.
Historic Great location Staff was super friendly and helpful especially the valet Noise level in the rooms. Windows do not block out the noise from the streets so you can hear Grace Cathedral bells and the cable cars which is great but also the loud drunks in the middle of the night as well.
Location and staff Dirty and stained furniture in hallways by rooms
Staff was considerate and helpful in every way. Food in the Nob Hill Club was excellent. Great views from Top of the Mark. Furniture in lobby needs cleaning or reupholstering. Looks dated. Bathroom was small and dark. I was there 5 days and one of the elevators was out of service for 3 of those days.
beliggenheten mitt i byen. bra standard. nær all komuniksjon og serverdigheter. servicminded personale. altfor kompliserrt og dyrt med internett. helt unødige forstyrrelser av rom-personalet. Noen rer opp sengen, noen kommer med vannflasker og til slutt res sengen opp til natten.
Hyggelig personale og god beliggenhet ved Huntington park. Frokost og middag kunne vært noe mer tilrettelagt for hotellets gjester.
Flott rom og flott beliggenhet
Flott behandling fra betjeningen. Heldig med oppgardering og fikk holde rommet til over utsjekktid. Eneste påpeking var en litt nøytral servitør mtil tidlig frokost, men dette tar ikke luven fra oppholdet. Terningkast 6! se over
Hotellet ligger sentralt og har pene romslige rom. Eldre stil, med spaavdeling i forbindelse med resepsjonen. Koselig pianobar, som var godt besøkt. God mat.
Friendly Staf, clean rooms. City c Highly expensive parking!!!
One of the best business travel experiences ever Nothing
I like the view and the complimentary wine tasting.. Our room at the 20th floor had a great view of the city at night.. Even tho it was a short stay on our 10th year aniversarie it was a great one..
Convenient location especially the cable car stop adjacent to the hotel. Room temp was difficult to manage.
simple place for business. very clean, beautiful view of the city and part of the bay. staff was helpful. good for late checkins, as checkin is 3pm, so make sure to call or check in prior to arrival. pool was closed for renovations, but that really isn't a complaint since they will be upgrading it which is great. maybe breakfast was kind of expensive, i payed $19 for the buffet when it was just me. so kind of high, $15 would have been more reasonable given the limited choice in food.
I loved this place! I love the location the staff was friendly and the hotel was amazing! The best view of the bay!
Very good value. Nice looking and simple hotel for a very reasonable rate. Just what I was looking for. Nice breakfast and good views. Took my wife and baby with me on a business conference trip. Room worked well for the baby with enough space for the crib provided unlike other hotels I saw. Overall very solid hotel. Location was not the best but I knew that going in. Some of the surrounding streets were a little sketchy at night. Not a big deal for me but maybe for some others. Parking pricey at $45 a night but all hotels in SF are about this expensive.
View and street that hotel was in it , hotel was clean and Good stuff nice view and was very good hotel for family To visit San Francisco, good facility for going to city and taxi and bus was very nice and available. There was many restaurants of different countries near hotel so we could go there and use it Turkish and irannian restaurant named alborz Was very near to hotel Bus station also was very near to hotel, Breakfast was not including , I was supposed to have breakfast included but it was not included for my reservation,so a little bit was bothering for me.!!!! There wasn't anything else that I can say negative about this hotel, We were comfortable in five nights That were staying in hotel.
Front desk was extremely helpful. I needed to cancel my reservation to relocate closer to the hospital where my family member was undergoing surgery for a brain tumor. However, I had booked the room through Expedia. The manager assured me that the hotel would not charge a cancellation fee, given that Expedia advertises no cancellation fees except as subject to the hotel. He was willing to be put on the phone with Expedia to explain the waiver. While on the phone with Expedia, I was put on hold for 30 minutes, then reprimanded by the Expedia representative that I would be charged a cancellation fee of the first night's stay. She refused to let me speak to the manager, and also refused to speak to the hotel manager who had happily obliged to discuss the matter with her. I was continually placed on hold, only to have her come back to the phone to reprimand me. I am grateful to the hotel manager for his hospitality which was in stark contrast to my telephone encounter with Expedia. Expedia and the false advertising of no cancellation fees, as well as the rude telephone spokesperson.
I liked the friendliness of the staff and the attention to making the hotel a comfortable place to stay.
It was very nice to get an American Breakfast with your room rate. No blow dryer in the room - had to ask for one, and go to the office to get it.
The ambience and location. A very different experience and obvious pride in which the owners had tastefully decorated each and every room. Lack of Tea/coffee making facility in the room.
Location, just perfect Restaurant schedule
Everything about the hotel, it was charming, very clean, the people were very nice, the room was comfortable. Loved the decor and the French influence. I would defintely stay there again and would recommend it to family and friends. Loved the old elevator, reminded me of the one when I lived in San Francisco many years ago. I am planning on another trip to San Francisco in the near futrue and would like ot stay there again. Close to Union Square and stores and restaurants. Want to try their dinner next time. Dont have any dislikes whatsoever
Staffs are very friendly
the free breakfast. Quite a quaint place to stay. No window view at all in our room.
Convenient, charming and reasonably priced. Includes a well-prepared complementary breakfast. Would have tried the restaurant but it was quite expensive. No fridge in room.
The service was spot on as well as the entire decor of the place. Very beautiful and clean. The room was quaint and delightful. I enjoyed the bathtub very much. The heater was a little hard to use.
There is French music playing near the office. Each floor has the works of a French artist, and we stayed on the Chagall floor - one of my favorites. The elevator was prompt and I enjoyed the old style gate that closed after the doors closed. Very charming. Quite close to Union Square. American breakfast was included in our price; nicely done. -
We were very pleased about the location. The hotel was very cozy and comfortable and we would definitely consider staying here again next time we'll be in San Francisco. Only that the wireless internet connection should be working in all rooms and maybe the breakfast could be improved with more fruit/ healthy alternatives to the eggs and french toasts, which was good but very rich!
Kind hospitality, There is no coffe machine in the rooms
Quiet, comfortable, clean and pleasant staff.
location unfriendly staff. bad breakfast
Very charming, old fashioned feel. They made a delicious breakfast buffet with fresh fruits, quiches, meats, pastries, etc. The coffee was incredibly good. The staff were all friendly and seemed happy to work there. No a/C... Typical in SF old buildings. So I kept my windows open which let in noise.
Family feel as a whole. Complimentary drink was surprisingly good. Staff is helpful and friendly.
We liked that the rooms had comfortable chairs - not just a bed for sitting and reading or watching TV. The evening appetizer/wine event was nicely done. The breakfast was quite good. As a comment, not a judgment, the stairwells were narrow and steep, the floors creaky and the bathrooms small. These are reasons that the hotel may not be appropriate for children.
Service, breakfast, location, room None; coffee maker didn't work
Everything about our stay was pleasant. They hotel is an old building, but is in excellent condition. It's small, but they use they use the space well. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful; they make everything so easy (even parking, which is a nightmare in the city). I would absolutely stay here again! No complaints!
Felt European but was in the heart of San Fran
Heritage building, cool elevator Noise, room by the old elevator, very hard mattress.
Quaint. Charming. Right in the city. Did a lot of walking. Close to Union Square and Chinatown. Great eating places nearby Loved the hotel staff. They were helpful, informative and always considerate. Friends all said that this would be a place that they would return with their spouses and children.
The staff were incredibly helpful, and the location was perfect Traffic noise as vehicles made it up the very steep slope outside my window
Great, central location. The Nob Hill neighborhood is nice, plenty of places to eat and shop nearby. Everyone on staff at the Inn was incredibly friendly and helpful. The building itself is gorgeous. We had a really enjoyable stay here! Neighborhood is a little noisy, but it's the middle of the city so it's to be expected.
The common areas are very comfortable and the fires throughout the Inn are a nice touch. The Inn wasn't in the best of decor condition and the rooms were very tired, especially the extremely dirty curtains. The bath towels were also very small and thin and were definitely in need of replacement!Our bed was very noisy - creaking every time one of us turned!
Nice hotel, quite friendly staff definetly needs renovation!!!!!!!!!!!!
The White Swan was decorated in an English style and our room was very big, with it's own fireplace (which in SF in August - 18°c max - was great) and also a kitchenette. The breakfast was good and the small buffet and complimentary wine in the late afternoon was very nice. It's a short walk to Union Square (where all the shops are) and only about 1-2 blocks from the closest cable car stop.
Great rate with a free room upgrade. The room was probably bigger than many in SF call home. I mean, it had three sinks: one main bathroom, one wet bar, and one in a separate vanity area. The staff is super nice. Old building with original single-pane windows, so you'll probably hear some street noise.
very relaxed and friendly hotel
Very nice Hotel with excellent service and staff. Great location
The staff was very nice. The room was nice. Wine in evening was nice, and gave a chance to meet other travelers. Breakfast was good.
The room was lovely - very nicely done. The afternoon wine and nibbles was also very nice! They didn't put the cushions back on the bed everyday. Small point but would have been nice.
Room was huge, very comfortable. Not very sound proof, you can hear your neighbors pretty well.
affordable and it was close to all the tourist attractions carpet was dirty and the sheets didn't seem clean either
Staff was very friendly, great location, good for the price ... WiFi was really bad
Cute boutique hotel with character. Beds were very comfy. Staff was preoccupied with other things besides attending to guests. They told me I had booked two rooms when I had only booked one. Had to call the booking site who contacted the hotel staff to straighten it out. Rooms were small with old box style tv's. Breakfast was sad, Coffee, hard boiled eggs, bread. Would expect more for the price. Hotel had a musty smell.
location staff friendliness parking was limited and tight weekend got way to crowded and loud
Staff was friendly Room was dilapidated, Internet too slow and intermittent to be useful.
The location of hotel and inclusion of parking were great. Room 115: Hit with a moldy, wet odor immediately upon entering room. Blood splatter on wall in main room and multiple larger areas of blood splatter and smear in bathroom. Also smelled of cigarettes.
Older hotel but free parking and good location
Location was great! The room had a nocw view of the street, the room was huge and verry nice I loved the set up. It was clean and had a nice big closet and a walk in shower. The elevator was kinda slow and old but works very good, one set of stairs for the motel and parking is tight but free and good, weparked it once and walked everywhere
The staff was very friendly and helpful, and my room was nice and clean. The room was a pretty large, and the place has a good location. The bathroom was showing its age a bit and had no bathtub. You could hear people packing up their cars rather easily.
Staff and location great Soon rooms need up grade
Grant hotel hadde flott beliggenhet - gåavstand til det meste. Rommet var greit. Renhold var greit. Det står at prisen inkluderer frokost. Frokosten bestod av donuts og muffins. Selv om man ikke legger listen høyt for frokost i USA kunne det med fordel vær satt frem et fat med frukt til de som ikke ønsker å starte dagen med et tonn sukker. Frokostblanding er heller ikke dyrt og lett å håndtrere.
The location was excellent and the price low. Accommodations were simple but functional and staff was very communicative, even texting me the day before my arrival to confirm check-in time. Being right on Van Ness, it was a very loud spot. The bed was small and the bathroom cramped. No soap was provided for the sink, which was weird.
room does not look like picture
I enjoyed my stay here because the room was big. I didn't like the small parking
The area, very nice position good for bus transport, good restaurants and shops It was really a motel, the room was dark .
The proximity to places of interest. We weren't far from anywhere we wanted to go. The parking wasn't the greatest but we are talking about San Francisco. The carpeting was worn and there were stains on the ceiling but the room was clean.
Location was excellent, close to Polk street with pubs, shopping, restaurants,etc. Price was right. Close all bus lines. Rooms were clean and well kept if a little dated. Microwave and fridge a plus. Free parking. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This is a place I would definately stay at again and would recommend it to all. Nothing to complain about.
The rooms are okay, fully equipped and very clean (good towels!), good beds. The location is good, parking garage available at no extra cost The so called Continental Breakfast was a joke: picking up a cup of coffee and a muffin in the very small entrance/office.
Great location. Comfortable room. Nice hosts. Free parking. Walking distance to attractions. Lively neighborhood with many restaurants.
Value for the money
Free parking. Good location. Easy walking to sites and public transit. Very resonable price. Quiet. The hotel is older and wedged between other buildings so there is no view. The room was clean but had a strong smell of cleanser each morning.
convenient, is close to where i had to be, and quiet
A good value hotel in a expensive city like S. Francisco. Located in a nice neighbourhood. Very Clean and confortable, free parking and a basic breakfast. The staff is great, friendly and helpful. Nothing
Very close to a lot of tourist attractions. The fridge and microwave in the room were nice to have. The bed was a little lumpy. Also we could hear someone stomping around in the room above us until late at night.
It's location was ok. Pretty much in the middle of all the sites. It got the job done as a place to lay at night. I felt safe enough with the metal gate and a security guard at night. I rented a car and street parking, while free at night, was kinda hard. but very doable. 3 straight nights i found free meter (9pm-9am) parking within 3 blocks of the hotel. While there was a lot of bums, they seem harmless enough, but there was a lot. Hotel staff wasn't answering the door when we first arrived but eventually got in after several calls and ringing the bell over ad over. I'd defiantly stay at better place in a better area if i ever go back to SF, but for the price it was good. Didn't like that i had to call and ring the bell over and over until i got in. Location is right near tenderloin with all the crazy bums.
well located in a safe area.clean and quiet.really good quality/price choice.
Room was big enough, clean enough, good value, good location.
During my stay in the Cable Car Court Hotel I like the tranquility of the zone anb the location.
cosy room room could be cleaner
It was cheap, and filled a need
the location is near to union square by walking.. and consider it as sport! the rate is also good. hope we can have WIFI from our own room instead just in the lobby
Staff were friendly and very accommodating. Room was comfortable and clean even though furniture and fittings were old. Position relative to cable car and other public transportation was good. Also close to supermarket and other convenience stores, bottle store and choice of restaurants. We were very happy there and would do so again. Noisy in the evenings and night. Area OK during the daytime but many vagrants and revellers around at night. A phone in the room would have been good.
it was in the centre & easy to get around it could off been cleaner &staff a bit friendlyer
I enjoyed hearing the bells of the Cable Cars as they stopped in front of the hotel. Otherwise, my stay was pleasent. The difficulty in carrying luggage up the front steps.
The cost and location Internet access
