You get what you pay for – This hotel is super affordable even during peak seasons, but you seriously would get what you pay for. Location is great - walking distance to the train which takes you to and from the airport, union square (do all your shopping), and visitor's center where you get all the maps, hop on the trolley, etc. Cons are there wasn't enough hot water on the first day. The days afterwards were fine but not great. The showerhead seems a bit outdated as the water trickles out like a faucet instead of gushing. My "do not disturb" sign was swiped my from doorknob (not the hotel's fault of course). Not sure about other rooms, but my room had this huge (about 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide) window with no screens and facing a back alley! This place is great for those just need a place to store luggage and sleep while they spend most of the day exploring.
Good value hotel, Nice neighbourhood. – We came back to stay at this hotel again and found they have replaced all the furniture, which is much cozy than before. The staffs still provide very friendly service and we were upgraded to the top floor rooms since they recognized us as returned guests. We have a good time in China town, and the hotel is only few blocks away from Union Square. We met our friends at the Ritz Carlton Hotel which is just up the street from this hotel. I would recommend this to my friends now that they have new furnishings, it is very good value. The location is also very safe and convenient to every where we want to go.
Clean and centrally located for a pleasant stay. – The Scene
No concierge, no restaurant and no room service. While this isn't the place to stay for amenities, the slightly out-of-fashion hotel is a great find for frugal travelers. The chandeliers and pink leather sofa in the lobby don't quite match the fake flowers and French provincial chairs. But who cares? The location is swell, one block up from the Dragon Gate entrance to Chinatown.
Six floors house 71 small, chain-style rooms. All are equipped with voicemail and TVs, and bathrooms offer showers and wall-mounted hair dryers. The decor favors mauve and light-colored wooden furnishings. Top-floor rooms feature pretty plantation shutters. This floor was once a nightclub and Chinese tea garden--don't miss out on the beautiful stained-glass dome and windows leftover from the glory days.
Best bang for your buck! – I've stayed in lots of SF hotels, but I always return the Grant Plaza, or the "GP" as me and my friends call it. The location is excellent (right at the Chinatown gate). The rooms are small, but clean, and the staff is helpful. By far, the most attractive thing about the GP is the price: $80/nt for a queen bed. I stayed there for New Years Eve 2005, and a couple of my friends got dbl rooms for $49/nt. That blew me away, and solidified my love for this place. It's not the Ritz, but it's perfect your wallet! They also upgrade returning guests a lot. So if you pay for a dbl, you might get a queen when you arrive. Last thing...it's very close to the alley way at Belden Place which is full of restaurants and a great vodka bar. Good times. Good times.
Great location and good service – My friend's wedding is up at Nob Hill area which is only one blcok from this hotel. Compare with what they are paying for their room, this hotel is of very good value. Very conveninetly located at the Chinatown gate and close to walking to everything. I was staying at one fo the renovated rooms on the top floor. Front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. Room is not very big, but well furnished. I will come back and stay here again.
frequent flier – I was very well satisfied with the accommodations at the Grant Plaza Hotel. The location was perfect, the room was clean, the price was reasonable, the service was good. I'll definitely stay there my next trip to San Francisco.
Great Value Great Hotel – Perfect location -near the shopping, just in Chinatown and close to all cablecars, streetcars and buses.
Clean, well run and very helpful.
We lost a bag and the front desk went to endless touble to help - we got our bag back!
Higlhy recommended (we're fussy) and very good value.
i'd let my mom stay in this hotel – nice place- clean rooms, though smallish; nice service; good price; great location. I had my parents stay here last year, and I would definitely do it again!
