convenient and satisfactory

Nothing special, a little dated, but clean, quiet, and well situated. This is a good value hotel for short stays in San Francisco. Probably more suited for the budget business traveler than tourists, but would still be good for that use also. I plan on returning here.

Uummmm if you like old crusty hotels with no A/C, windows with no screens

Very old hotel. Smells like cheese and mice when you first walk in. The staff is very nice. But I'll be honest, the beds suck, it dosent feel clean at all, it's very old, no A/C, a water radiator that's always on, and windows with no screens. Parking is a mess.

At the Chinatown Gate

We did a one-night stint at the Baldwin during a conference. Typically, we do not stay in hotels when visiting S.F. however, our usual connections did not come through. The price was quite good and the location was convenient for both shopping and eating. I'd recommend it.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

The oldest restaurant in San Francisco is a short walk from the Baldwin. Try the Tadich Grill on California Street for seafood and a fun atmosphere.

Great location - small rooms

The location of the hotel is great and pretty close to everything. Unfortunately tho, the building and the rooms are pretty small.

We enjoyed the location and the price!

Fine hotel, great location. There may be fancier hotels, but this was a nice place at a really good price. Note no air conditioning. We had the window open one unusually warm September night and the street was very loud.

Sept Stay

Loved the location. Walking distance to pier about a mile and quarter. Is near China Town (half a block), Union Square, good restaurants and financial district. Basic hotel amenities. Hair dryer in dresser drawer hard wired through back of drawer. Prefer it in bathroom. Room is not air conditioned so had to leave window open and fan on all night. At 11:15 garbage trucks arrive and make a lot of noise if on the alley side. Staff is extremely accommodating and friendly. Parking is a block and half away and staff there were very courteous. Tub has curtain almost all the way around; I felt a little claustrophobic. Electrical plugs were convenient. Price was good. I recommend a stay there.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Skip the cable car as lines are long and it costs more than a taxi. Traveled to Pier 39 and fisherman's wharf several times. Never paid more than $12 which is the cost of two on cable car. It is a quick ride.

Great deal in San Fran

The Baldwin is a family-owned hotel. This was our first stay there. It was located close to BART, China Town, and Union Square. The rooms were smaller than the midwest but larger than New York, and they were VERY clean, which is important to me. The bathroom was super. Nice tub, clean tile. We stayed for three nights, and the staff was very helpful, storing our bags the first and last day, calling cabs when needed, and recognizing us when we came in after the front door was locked for the and buzzing us in. Bed, pillows, and linens were comfortable and nice. The maid who did our room left towels in different folds on the bed every day--swans, a crab, etc. It was just like the picture (I thought that was probably just for the picture--it was fun to have it.) Closet was large and had a safe. We would stay here again.
