Stayed here for 3 nights and thankfully we were out exploring the city so didn't spend much time there. Our room was in a poor state decoratively with flaking paint, towel rail coming out of the wall, grubby carpet and walls so thin we could literally hear every word from our neighbours. We didn't choose to eat or drink here...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

My husband and I decided to get a room for our 12th year anniversary at this lovely hotel. Upon checking in, Margaret in front desk greeted us with a friendly smile and was very helpful by recommending a few places to eat and things to do. She quickly checked us in and offered to help us with our luggage. After...

Nice hotel in the center, nearby Union Square. At arrival, I got an upgrade as I booked directly on their website. They have very friendly and helpful Staff. The bar next door is cozy with happy hour until 8:00

Last morning the "wake up call" woke us up at 7:30am telling us that we had to get our car back from the parking (40$ per day) whereas we didn't ask to be awaken. We left the hotel at 8am without a breakfast whereas we wanted to stay in bed this morning.

Booked the Pickwick because of the price and it was well located. I was visiting my Grandson for Mother's Day and he's with the Lines Ballet who were performing at the Yerba Buena Performing Arts Center. It was very clean and well appointed. Loved the mini frig for wine and cheese after performance . Incredible bed and pillows.

Your hotel is an absolute disappointment. We over paid for a supposed "higher end room" and saw what a waste of our time and money it was. We chose this hotel because we wanted to stay in a very nice, local hotel. We had no idea it would be such a shack. For staying in the second biggest room your...

Quick check in, and no problems. The place I always choose to stay when I need to be downtown. When I check out, it is always quick and I never have had to wait. The connecting restaurant is a great feature as well.

Small room but kept clean, and great location. Friendly and helpful front desk staff. I didn't get a chance to visit any of the on-site restaurants, but they appeared busy which is always a good sign.

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.
