Several times a year, my husband and I spend 3 to 4 days in San Francisco and we always return to the Fitzgerald Hotel. It's a charming European style boutique hotel in a great location with the added bonus of breakfast included and best of all, a history of excellent room rates and guest services. That said, this past Christmas...

Dear DNJarvis, thank you very much for coming back to our boutique hotel. We are glad you enjoyed your stay every time, and glad to know our staff was able to give you another good experience. We agree with you that being professional is not the only quality that makes a good service, and that there is nothing like feeling...

Traveling through San Francisco, California and staying at the Fitzgerald Hotel on Post Street, two blocks from Union Square, I stayed in Room 501 on the fifth floor and checked out on February 7th, 2014

The hotel is located in an excellent area of San Francisco. Easy walk to union square. Good restaurants across the road. And easy walk to transport links like the trams and trains. The hotel is clean, people have commented on the decor being outdated. I would say it is quaint and at least it is all clean and bigger than...

Dear guest, thank you for having been with us during your stay in San Francisco. We apologize that the parking voucher was not honored. The Fitzgerald Hotel is indeed affiliated with a parking company one block away from its location, which starts at $16, and you should have gotten your discount honored. We wish we had known about this issue...

My brother and I drove up to SF for the weekend (last minute) without booking anything. Once we arrived to SF, we were going crazy trying to find decent priced hotel. Luckily we came across Fitzgerald Hotel. By far the best deal we had offered to us. To top it off Eric at the front desk was extremely helpful when...

We stayed here for two nights. We arrived a bit early so the lady in the front desk let us keep our luggage in a large closet while our room was being prepped. At check in she gave us a nice quiet room in the sixth floor, away from the street. This hotel is easy to get to from the...

This is not your "life of luxury hotel". Don't expect modern furniture and large bathrooms. But this hotel has all the necessities. The Beds are incredibly comfy, the rooms are a decent size for downtown, the furniture is beautiful, and the staff is incredibly helpful. One of the front desk attendants named Eric was more than helpful when it came...

We got stuck in SF because of canceled flights back east. Immediately felt the 1920s charm of this place. A few blocks from a great fast-food gourmet plates place called Seet Woodruff where they served us an excellent lunch. The Fitzgerald was perfect--both my husband and I had to work during the day, and even on the 2nd floor with...

We booked with Adelaide Hostel and ended up here as it is their "sister" location. The lobby is clean and provides brochures, maps and local papers to help figure out a plan for your stay. The staff was all friendly and helpful. We were on the 5th floor and were able to use the charming gated elevator when needed. The...

We really liked the location - very central and yet quiet enough not to be bothered by the noise and crowds of SF downtown. The place has this sort of old school charm which I like and the stuff was helpful in pointing out some good places to eat (there's couple very good sushi and thai places nearby). Everything's in...

I stayed at the Fitzgerald recently when I was in San Francisco helping my daughter move out of a downtown apartment. Normally I stay at the Andrews when I have to stay downtown, but they were booked, and the Fitzgerald is right next door, so... Overall, it was a very good experience! The hotel staff was very pleasant and helpful....

Thank you for the thoughtful and constructive feedback! We’re so glad you enjoyed the room, appreciated the atmosphere, and were able to stay warm despite the uncharacteristic cold spell! We do normally have several armchairs for guests to use in the lobby, but they are only taken out for decorative purposes during the Christmas season. Thank you also for the...
