FAQs about hotels in San Francisco

An Icon of Liberalism

Home to one of America’s icons – the Golden Gate Bridge – San Francisco is a liberal city where life is very much for the living.

Surrounded by water on 3 sides, the city's spread over steep hills that make for great photo ops. And none better than the zig-zag Lombard Street, seen in many a film. Even more famous are San Fran's iconic trolleys climbing the hills – a little touristy, but still worth a ride.

In the middle of the bay, Alcatraz island is known for the notorious criminals once imprisoned there. Even if you don’t go inside, the views of the bridge and city are unparalleled.

Nowhere is life in San Francisco more laid-back than on the Pacific beaches. Rent a bike and head out there, passing through the huge Golden Gate Park, before returning to sample some fresh seafood at Fisherman’s Wharf. Don't miss the clam chowder served in bread bowls! Chinatown also has a great selection of mid-range restaurants.

As you fly into San Francisco Airport, look out for the exclusive homes lining the Bay Area. Whether you want a more independent stay in apartments, luxury San Francisco hotels or cheap hostels, has something for everyone. Be careful though – you might just leave your heart here!

    We spent 5 days there in February, 4 adults and 2 teens, and it rained the whole time. We made the best of it and saw and did many fun things. We would love to go back in the summer and explore some more.

    San Francisco is slowly going back to the charm it had pre-...

    San Francisco is slowly going back to the charm it had pre-Covid era. This city experienced difficult changes like any other major city that made it out of the pandemic barely standing. There are still empty commercial spaces as a result of the closures, but there are still working establishments and new ones popping up. Great to know my favorite eating spots are still around along with other places that I saw that weekend. We saw the area full of foreign and local visitors for business (conventions, etc.) and pleasure (events, tourism). The working weekday crowd is not exactly the same as before and that has surely led to the business closures. The homeless people who hang out on the streets are few where it's busy with foot traffic and events. The further away you go from central locations, the more street wanderers will be encountered. Union Square is high-end shopping spots, but one can find their smart-spending niche in big stores like Macys and Ross nearby. Many food options, though certain originals are missing. A simple google search for options is at your fingertips and include the nearby hotels and their food spaces. Happy to see the originals that still exist : rooftop Cheesecake Factory, old-time breakfast favorite Sears, Mel's Diner, King of Thai Noodle House, Max Opera, Lori's Diner. What's new is the street hotdog carts around the Union Square at night- that is a must try! Well-placed hotels with parking is hard to come by and depending on the purpose of your visit, maybe you want to be closer to the action. So prepare to consider nearby parking garages, or well-lit street parking especially at night which is free depending on the time slot. My usual go-to for a parking garage with decent rates is Ellis O'Farrell and Sutter for proximity to Union Square. Beyond this area of San Francisco lies so much more!

    The Red and White boat cruise was very nice. The sightseeing cruise tour allowed us to capture great views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the awesome San Francisco skyline. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at The Fog Harbor House, delicious seafood with a great view!

    San Francisco is a great, great city, and suffering currently from a massively overblown reputation for an out-of-control street-people situation. I live in Vancouver, have recently visited Portland, it feels to me those situations are worse but you don’t hear the same alarm? Fantastic food, very walkable (though hilly) shopping, museums, views, San Francisco’s charms are famous and true. My favourite US city by far.

    Enjoyed the hop-on-hop-off bus and recommend for initial orientation. We got off at the Presidio and enjoyed walking around that structure. It's much bigger and more interesting than I expected. Went back the next day to explore the Science Center which is awesome. Great place for kids to explore. Public transit is very good and inexpensive. Thought the Embarcadero was worth seeing but overall disappointing. Very touristy and somewhat run-down. Despite the variety of businesses, it seemed sterile and lacking any kind of real vibe. Maybe just a slow time of year but I wouldn't bother going there on a return visit. Vancouver restaurant prices are high but the restaurants here are as high or higher. Tipping is expected everywhere, even if service is nothing more than ringing in an item you bring to the counter at a Grab 'N Go.

    Alcatraz and the beach area close to the Golden Bridge were very nice. I appreciated the public transport (at the US level it was fine). I did not liked downtown because of weird people, sometimes under drugs.

    Hotel Nikko is conveniently located near Union Square, making it an easy place from which to launch sightseeing, shopping and dining excursions. We loved the sumptuous bedding and elegant bath accessories. We also loved the thoughtfulness in providing half and half in their minibar for early morning or late night cups of coffee from the Keurig machine. But best of all were the staff at this hotel. Time and time again, we were treated with extra mile service, warmth and good natured kindness. Wow! We will gladly return.

    The hotel is located in the beautiful Nob Hill area close to the downtown and North Beach. The room and washroom were expecially clean, had all necessary facilities which I needed at my stay. Both the room and the hotel have classic and old European luxurious style. I liked it very much! Although I did not visited a dining area or a bar (wanted to try different tastes of food in the city), I believe the meals are fantastic! If I come back to San Francisco, absolutely, I will stay at this hotel again!

    Room was well laid out and roomy. Bed and pillows are super comfy and the bedside iPhone dock was a great touch. Bathroom was good with a powerful shower and plenty of hot water. Coffee making facilities provided were good. Location was great to explore Chinatown and union square with good access to the cable car and muni bus. Some good eating and drinking places nearby. Front of house staff were all friendly and happy to help with any questions we had about the area or the Hotel.

    Very well located for Union Square, Chinatown, North Beach and Embarcadero areas of San Francisco and we were able to walk to most places easily from this hotel. The staff were friendly, and the quirky rooms were spacious. There was a simple continental breakfast included, which we were satisfied with on one occasion although we did choose to go out for brunch one morning instead. There is a complimentary wine hour in the evening, with snacks, which was a nice touch.

    It’s a modern and cozy hotel. Located just one block away from union square! Totally comfortable and equipped with all you need for a short stay: it has a laundry room with coffee machine and hot and cold water. There are public restrooms other than the one in your room. There’s also a great dining area where you can eat or just lay down with your computer. The room was rather small but the beds were awesome ! Super comfy. I’ll come back for sure

    The location is very near to Chinatown where the cable cars can be spotted and 5-10min walk from Union Square. Although there is no parking in the hotel premises, there is a safe, clean and well-lit parking garage one block across the hotel which is reasonably priced compared to others in the area. The staff are also friendly and accommodating - they let us leave our luggage while waiting for our bus to LA. Special thank you to Lita and Daniel!

    We really loved this hotel, it was decorated in a very original way. We had a fireplace in our bedroom, also at the resting area were you can have breakfast -included in the room price- and wine in the afternoon. Staff was very nice, specially Braulio, he helped us a lot with great tips to go around the best areas in San Francisco. We also loved this city, people was so happy and kind. We would definitely return and stay here again.

    I've stayed at numerous Union Square hotels in the last 15 years and this is by far the best for that budget. Recently renovated, the rooms are bright, quiet, large and with all modern comfort. The lobby and bar area are gorgeous. The 3 elevators ensure you never wait more than 30 seconds to get to or from your room. The staff is helpful and nice, and there is a breakfast restaurant within the building.

    Hotel location was ideal for our San Francisco experience. Short walking distance to the pier and other sites of interest. A couple of blocks from the bus stops for easy transport to other locations such as North Beach, Chinatown and Union Square. $50 Uber ride from the airport (no hotel shuttle). Hotel staff extremely friendly and helpful with transportation and local sites/restaurants.

    In San Francisco downtown, near Union Square. The stuff was very friendly and helping. Bathroom very clean. Sheets were clean but matress was covered in a certain protection that indicates they had issues with bed bugs (we had no problem with). I don't understand why they don't gjve up at that horrible fitted carpet that is so hard to clean and encourages the existance of bed bugs.

    The hotel is very centrally located right in the heart of downtown San Francisco. Union Square, the Embarcadero and Chinatown are all within walking distance. I love the happy hour from 5 to 6 pm in the hotel every day where guests are able to enjoy a nice glass of wine. Staff were very friendly and helpful and they gave me a room on a higher floor with nice views of the city.
