Decz05, It is always disheartening to hear that a guest stay was anything short of flawless. However, feedback like this allows us to improve our operations going forward. I will be touching base with our housekeeping department to determine where and how we dropped the ball during your stay. Certainly this is not typical of the sort of experience that... More

Got in at 3pm and our room wasn't ready. That was level 7, they tried giving me a ready room on level 3. I said I'd wait for level 7. Instead they "upgraded" me to level 6 room which was apparently better. The room is nothing great. Paid huge money per night and I believe it's about a 3-4 star... More

This was a great spot to stay in SF, and we loved the vibe! Our room was great, very plush, and romantic. Not much of a view, but that's what you get in the heart of the city. The area is extremely urban, which is just what we wanted- super close to the SF MOMA and easy public transportation to... More

Hotel Zetta is literally steps away from a host of attractions in San Francisco. While there for a short visit on business I was able to walk to other areas of SOMA and Union Square. The Powell BART station is also only a block away. Really friendly and helpful staff. Already planning my next visit.

Hotel Zetta has a wonderful location very close to the BART and shopping.

Really hip place. Stayed with our group for a business trip. Good location. Lots of hotel amenities for the 20-somethings. Easy walking distance to Union Square, but a little too close to the gritty part of city.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
