This is a very old hotel, very dated. But this is a great location. The room was really big and everything was very clean. No views from my room, just a brick wall out the window. Breakfast consists of muffins and coffee etc. If you are just sleeping here it is the perfect hotel. If you are going to be...

This hotel has potential but it has to invest in king size beds. The rooms are large with small beds, so it is not comfortable for two people. The bathroom is nice. The breakfast is really poor, just sweets ! The location is great.

The Grant Hotel is in a great location and for the price, it is hard to beat. I was in town for a conference and was able to stay at the Grant for MUCH cheaper, and walk to and from my meetings each day. Interior and amenities are a little older, but overall was a comfortable, quiet stay.

We stayed at the Grant Hotel for 4 nights.The location is pretty amazing only a 5 min walk from Union Square. The hotel is very old and creaky but those of you know how expensive San Franicisco is will have an open mind to the affordable price of this hotel. It is just over half as expensive as properties 2...

I booked this hotel because it was cheaper by $100 each night than my meeting hotel which was one block away. I walked to and from my meeting every day. The Grant Hotel offers clean spacious rooms, comfortable bed, TV with cable, friendly helpful staff and complimentary continental breakfast and coffee. The breakfast consists of a variety of fresh croissants,...

This is place you go to if you don’t have the means to go to a better hotel. It’s fine if you are planning to stay the minimum amount of time in the room. The reception desk seems to exclusively be run by teenagers. When I arrived, I was told to wait on the side for someone to be available....

Don't be fooled by the low price. The Grant Hotel is a terrible place to stay. Normally I wouldn't take the time to write a review but I feel in this case it is necessary so that others don't suffer the way I did. First, the shower was a nightmare as there was ONLY HOT WATER. Imagine trying to clean...

I use this hotel every trip to San Francisco, and have for more than 10 years. It's basic, but offers a good atmosphere, and is well positioned. It's very close to Union Square, and within walking distance of Financial District, Shopping and BART.

The room was great, very confortable with a changing room. The location is very nice, though is over a hill top so when you come back from Union Square you have to walk upwards, but this is San Francisco!! The breakfast was very poor, and the staff in general didn't provide much help, even one clerk fail to give simple...
