I didn't have any problems. Much cheaper than all the rest. And it's in the heart of Chinatown. Just a few blocks from Union Square - yet I never seen any homeless out front like everywhere else. So less stress. There's also a Starbucks only 2 blocks away. I rented a single room with 2 double beds and we also...

Very small rooms, but tidy and clean and the location is really good. I would happily stay here again.

If its location you want, Grant plaza is right in the middle of the nice part of China Town, close to transport and restaurants. Our room stank of mould and we had to leave the windows open! pretty basic small rooms, but we spent nearly no time there so it wasn't a massive issue. If you want a hotel that...

When you make your reservation, make sure you tell the desk clerk that you want a room with windows that both open and are not frosted glass. My room had a window in the bedroom and one in the bathroom. Neither opened!!!!! Does this even comply with SF fire codes? I can't imagine that it does. The windows overlooked an...

Do not stay here if you're expecting upscale lodgings in an expensive neighborhood. But, if you want reliable, clean rooms at a very reasonable price, and happen to like neighborhoods with ethnic flavor, this is a great choice. When traveling by myself, I regularly choose this property over the better known establishments in the Financial District, or along Van Ness...

Small, small rooms but very clean and right in the middle of everything, especially if you purchase a muni pass. California St cable car 1 block away, Union Square is a 5 minute walk, and Bart Powell Station is within walking distance too. Right in China Town so it's a bit noisy but you just get use to the city...

Okay, so it was my first time in San Francisco, and the trip my Mom and I booked was for 5 nights. The small room and dirty sheets might not have bugged me as much if I had been traveling with friends -- but I mean, at least when I travel with my parents, it usually means I won't be...

I stayed at the Grant Plaza for three nights and it was the perfect place for me.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Grant Plaza for 6 nights at the end of May of 2012. We're from NYC, so we immediately like this place because it is located right smack in the middle of downtown SF, where all the action is. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel at home. Upon our request,...
