Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Unfriendly staff. Overpriced and underwhelming. Despite notifying staff multiple times of issues- issues were either not addressed or took multiple requests, time, etc. Don’t stay here. Took over 30 minutes for the valet to get our car. We were told there was no other cheaper self parking nearby- there was. Didn’t clean my room despite setting it up at check in. Room was small and cramped and overpriced. Awful experience

Hotel looks new. Rooms are very clean and the staff is very friendly. Breakfast was very good. You will have to valet park. This is typical of most downtown hotels. You are a short drive from the Golden Gate Bridge and Pier 39. I would definitely stay here again.

The rooms are the smallest you have ever seen. I could almost lay sideways and touch the walls on either side of the bed with my feet on one side and fingers on the other. About 18inches on either side of the bed. No desk, no chair nothing. I ate on the ironing board. The bathroom light is motion sensing and once on flickered for hours. I requested a repair and they didnt. It was like The Shining in there. The breakfast room was in the basement, no windows. Just a small space with walls.

We needed a place to stay for a Duran Duran concert at Chase Center and this one ticked all the boxes. Not far from the venue, decent reviews and good price. I will say the street this is on is not impressive, to put it nicely (think trash, closed businesses and a lot of unhoused people), but you go a block over and it's fine. Don't be deterred. The front door is always locked and you'll get buzzed in. It's valet parking. Once you get inside, it's a very modern, bright hotel. All staff we encountered were very friendly and I even got a text checking in on how we liked our room shortly after we got in. The room is small, but so are rooms throughout the city. I remember staying at the pricey Palace Hotel for a business conference and barely being able to get into the room, it was so tiny. This was much better as far as space. But no one really goes to SF to sit in a hotel room. The room was new, modern and very clean. It was surprisingly quiet for being in a city. Just a couple miles to our parking spot for Chase (Giants lot C is great for Chase, BTW. Short walk and easy in/out. Be sure to book a spot in advance.) We had dinner at 54 Mint on the adjoining street and it was amazing! Can't recommend it enough, but be sure to have reservations, as they book up. People were being turned away at 5 pm. The hotel is also located near Union Square. A tip: If your door doesn't seem to open with either key, you really need to push hard on the door to get it to open. We thought our keys didn't work, but second time around my husband pushed hard and got the door to finally open.

The location of the hotel is in a sketchy area but it is within waking distance of good restaurants and shopping. The view from our room was great but we had a city view and we were on the top floor (16th Floor). Service was really good and the hotel staff was extremely helpful. The rooms are really small though and it was a challenge getting our luggage in.

Although some aspects of this property are good, overall it was not one of my better hotel stays. The good: The staff were very nice and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable. Hot breakfast was fine. About the same as every Hampton. The bad: The area surrounding the property is sketchy. A little secluded and didn't feel very safe after dark. There were a number of noises that were bothersome: there was a constant fairly loud hum from a fan in the hallway, the elevator made a clicking sound frequently that could be heard from my room, and then there was a buzzing noise coming from a fan about an hour before I checked out. I'm sure maintenance could have done something about it but I just reported it on my way out. Also, one of the elevators was out of order which made for interminable waits in the morning for breakfast and check out. Other notes: The room is pretty small. Fine for sleeping but I wouldn't plan to hang out here. The property is close to Union Square so it's pretty convenient but all in all I would not plan to stay at this property if you have a choice.

The hotel is conveniently located near Powell Street station for public transportation both from the airport and local services. After a minor hiccup with the first room that we were allocated, we were moved to a larger and more comfortable one. All the staff members were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. My only complaint is the quality of the hot breakfast and having to use disposable cutlery and crockery, which made the whole experience feel budget. Also, no kettle available for the room. Other reviewers have mentioned homeless people in the vicinity, which is true, like most large cities, but at no time were we harassed or feel uncomfortable.

If you feel comfortable with random people off the street coming into the hotel and elevator while holding screw drivers as a weapon then pick this place. If you like having hair on your bed, pillow, towel and toilet then yes pick this place.

Was not pleased with this Hilton property. Clearly an old building that has been renovated. Dust was everywhere, staff was rather rude and not very friendly or helpful. When we arrived they had canceled one of our reservations but the front desk agent made a new reservation at a higher rate and refused to honor my discount despite having our original reservation and confirmation number. Was told to take it up with the GM and only received an email to "take it up with whoever had made my reservation"...the reservation was made by myself and although Hilton stated the front desk was at fault I never received a refund or any admittance of any wrong-doing from the front desk or management. We also asked for dinner suggestions and the front desk staff member couldn't tell us a single restaurant in the area. Breakfast was OK however, was missing many of the required Hilton buffet items. The location is very dodgy - there were many homeless people directly outside of all doors after dark and there was fecal matter directly at the entrance for days before it was taken care of. Forced to use valet parking service but took agents more than 45 minutes to get vehicle...not pleased with this hotel. Very poorly managed and cared for.
