The hotel is in a great location, it's only 2 blocks from union square and very close to the shopping district. The area is the only negative aspect, since it's in the tenderloin district. My advise is when you leave your hotel just make a right and never go left and you will be ok. Other than that the staff is excellent and free coffee in the morning is a plus.
The hotel staff were some of the best we have ever met! Very helpful, cheerful and pleasant. The hotel location was brilliant we were just off the main square and could walk easily and safely from the hotel. We thought that the hotel parking was expensive before we got there but then realised that parking is very difficult and it was very competitive.
My family and I spent 2 nights here and we loved it. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. The room was very clean and staff was very accommodating. The only thing though was breakfast service. The breakfast service was not into standard with the rest of the hotel. They did not bring out the right items, or I was halfway done with my meal when they brought what I actually ordered out. Other then that, no complaints. Exceptional and I will be back!
"Great location. Convenient to union square option"
Staff is excellent. Restaurant next door is very nice. Brought pizza back to hotel and ate next to pool area at hotel. Expensive but not as high priced as other hotels in immediate area for the quality, friendly, cleanliness it provides.
I paid for a spa room which was huge and the spa tub did work. I have to say, though, that while I slept like a log a small thing disappointed me and made me feel like a second class guest. The coffee table in the room was in horrible shape - beat up and incongruent with the decor. Sounds trivial, but I ended up not booking there for a second weekend.
A very central and convenient location in the middle of China town with loads of resturants. A fun atmosphere and a close 20-min walk to Pier 33 for our Alcatraz Cruise (even with our young children.) Helpful staff and very helpful parking attendant downstairs. Recommended.

quaint hotel with modern touches. the staff was very friendly and helpful with any inquiries of the city. Starbucks located next to the lobby. many eateries within seconds. Definitely for the price I would stay here... I didnt have my toddler so it suited my needs.
Other than the street noise, everything was satisfactory. Had to be careful walking around at night in that area though. Hotel is clean, staff is accommodating.
I think the street noise comes from the little air vent opening they have on the windows. The air vent can be closed, but it's not sealed tight so the noise still comes through, no matter how high up you are.
We stayed this past weekend at the Hilton Union Square. It was pretty awesome! It was located within 2-3 blocks of all the tourist areas and very close to a trolley stop. The front desk staff and door staff were amazing and made getting help so easy. The only drawback is the room had poor ventilation in the bathroom, which left the room very steamy. But other than that we loved it and would stay here again!
Looking for a reasonably priced place to stay with our 2yo for a few nights, the Andrews was exactly what we were looking for. Good location a short walk from Union Sq and very close to several really good restaurants. Very friendly staff made us feel instantly welcome. Nice continental breakfast on each floor in the morning, included with room. Facilities are a bit old - a small old elevator with the gate that closes after you hit the button, no AC (though that's rarely a problem in SF and they have great ceiling fans) - but very clean and comfortable, including surprisingly big closets.
Flagship stores ring Union Square, among the vanguard of West Coast retail. Chinatown begins at Grant Avenue and Bush Street, while Gold Rush-era mansions crown Nob Hill. South of Union Square, the convention center area includes the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Cable cars turn around at Powell and Market streets to head back to Fisherman's Wharf.
