Look its a great location and great price! But man, I came here on vacation and the mood the staff set is not what you want. They are rude, they don't greet you and when you ask for help they treat you as if your stupid, once to the point I felt quite upset after. At the end of the... More

My friend and I stayed here for three nights on a girl's weekend. We just wanted a simple hotel near Union Square close to shopping and nightlife. The location is great, but the hotel was pretty lame. Curtains were torn, there was black mold in the bathroom. The room was small and run down, no a/c, and the noise from... More

I was in San Fran and wanted an inexpensive hotel but in a great location. I found it! The room I booked turned out to be a bit small and they upgraded me to a bigger room for a nominal fee (I think it was $15.) This is definitely a budget hotel and targets the traveller who's looking to save... More

I had actually booked through Adelaide Hostel but on arrival was directed to the Fitzgerald Hotel for my private double room.

Apart from small rooms that REALLY need a makeover, the lift is a relic. Probably Installed when the place was built, nothing appears to have been upgraded. What makes it worse is the ataff jam the doors open with laundry tubs when there doing the rooms. The breakfast, although complimentary, is overpriced. The dining area makes it look like a... More

Hi Davy, Believe it or not, many people actually like the elevator, and the overall atmosphere, since it is meant to be an authentic, vintage, boutique hotel and not a sterile environment. As for breakfast, it is varied, with toast, bagels, breakfast pastries, orange juice, various spreads, and the fruit salad, as well as coffee. Perhaps coming late, right before... More

Stayed three nights (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) and paid $700 for the pleasure. No AC, No screens, tiny room, vintage elevator that you could hardly get into and out of (the kind with the iron gate you pull back and forth from the 1940s and 1950s), room's view was of the parking lot and the yells from the vagrants and...

We really enjoyed our 10 day stay at the Fitzgerald. The staff were friendly and helpful, the help-yourself breakfasts were as big or as small as you wished, and our room was clean and tidy.

Pleasantly surprised by this genuine San Francisco boutique style hotel from yesteryear. Small rooms, but we were out all day. Really helpful desk staff that organised taxis and directions for us. Excellent location - walk a couple blocks to Union Square and buses, cable cars. Great to get help yourself breakfast included.

Very well situated near Union Square. Easy walk to great shopping. Very close to many bus routes, BART, and cable car. Breakfast downstairs was well done with good range of choices. Only poor feature was the elevator - very small and difficult to open.
