Clean and comfortable

The room was clean and comfortable. Staff at the hotel front door meet and greet were VERY casual in both attitude and dress, they did not offer to help with our bags on arrival. Concierge staff were fantastic and VERY helpful, if you need anything they are the ones to go to. Free wifi is very good.

Superb city getaway

Perfect hotel in an excellent location minutes from Union Square. Tram stop directly outside hotel to various points of interest within the city. Friendly, helpful staff and free bicycle use as part of your stay. Would not hesitate to return to this vibrant city with fabulous restaurants and bars. Stanford Court is the perfect Hotel and would recommend to all.

Great hotel for seeing stylish San Francisco

Enjoyed a week in this smart, luxury hotel in 'The City.' Would recommend it to single travellers, couples or business travellers. Room quality excellent and facilities spot on. Bar and restaurant comfortable and modern. Staff very helpful!

Great location

Good hotel location close to popular attractions and helpful and friendly staff. Room was clean but can be noisy as we stayed on the second floor. Traffic can be busy and with the cable cars running below, luckily one of the cable car lines was closed for works.

Expensive, but very nice hotel in prime location

Pros: Good & safe neighborhood, nicely furbished rooms.
Cons: Include resort fee in booking price so customers only pay once for everything.
Location: Nob Hill, hop on all of the three cable car lines (to Fishermans Wharf, Union Square, California St) right outside of the hotel - so fun!!
This room was really expensive (although all hotels in San Francisco come at a premium). On top of the room price I payed to ebookers, there was a resort fee which had to be payed in the hotel. Although this was mentioned on ebookers at time of booking, I still found it's weird & not customer friendly (why can't I pay for everything at once?). I primarily booked this hotel because I had to walk to the hotel after a baseball game at 11PM alone and wanted to feel safe on the way. The hotel is located on Nob Hill, at the crossroad of all three cable car lines. Even late at night, there are groups of tourists around so you can feel safe. Got a room on the 8th (= top) floor even though I booked the cheapest room of the hotel - nice treat! The room was very quiet and with a view on the city. Room has a safe, big TV screen and is furbished in an appealing way. Parking & breakfast are not included in the room price. Buy an SF MTA visitor passport at SFO airport (at the information counter in the airport, not at the bart station. It includes all MTA buses, trams and even the cable car lines - so convenient and safes money. bart (e.g. from SFO airport to downtown) is not included, though, as it is a separate company.

On top of the hill

Hotel is gelegen op een heuvel tegenover het Fairmont Hotel. Een tram brengt je rechtstreeks naar Fisherman's Wharf. Ontbijt in Hotel is prijzig (CAD 29) en karig. Maar om in de buurt naar een Starbucks of iets dergelijks te gaan is een hele opgave vanwege de steile hellingen. Voor SF-begrippen is het hotel prima qua prijs/kwaliteit. Bedden zijn, zoals bij veel hotels in Noord Amerika, erg goed. In de buurt heerlijk gegeten bij een Italiaan.

Mooi hotel

Mooi hotel helemaal boven op 'the hill'. Dus wel even 'klimmen' om dit hotel te bereiken. Wel een hele mooie centrale locatie waardoor je snel in Union Square bent en ook redelijke afstand van Pier 39 etc. Hotel is mooi bij binnenkomst. Kamers zijn erg ruim en bedden zijn goed. Douche beetje verouderd maar werkte prima. Absoluut een aanrader!

Urlaub mit Freunden

Das Hotel entsprach genau unseren Vorstellungen, die Zimmer waren geräumig (wir waren zu dritt, nach den kleinen Zimmern in New York eine Wohltat) und die Angestellten äusserst zuvorkommend. Super!
