It is a great old hotel with very friendly staff. The bed is comfy but I just felt like I was going to suffocate from lack of fresh air. The ceiling fan just blew the same little bit of air around and around. The room was clean but very skimpy on towels, only one hand towel and no wash clothes...

My visit started at the Douglas Bar which is just off of the lobby. Service was personable and excellent. The bartender mixed up a fresh, thoughtful cocktail of my choice and the scene was great - laid back, nice people, great ambience. My experience of the hotel was outstanding - friendly staff, beautiful lobby area, comfortable stay. I would highly...

We went on a road trip to SF to check out colleges, without any hotel reservations. A friend had stayed @ Tilden Hotel several years ago, when it was the Mark Twain. He knew it was walking distance to Union Square, Fisherman's Wharf and Chinatown. George, at the front desk, was very helpful over the phone, as well as when...

Staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is unique in that it's not a cookie cutter hotel, it has personality. If I'm fortunate to be able to go back to SF, I would stay at the Triden again. The exercise room is small, but it met my needs.

The rooms are pretty chic and homey feeling. Almost feels like I'm staying in a studio apartment (minus the kitchen). The heater wasn't working in our room but they were pretty prompt about fixing it. Otherwise very nice stay!

On the Tilden's website, the rooms and grounds are pictured as bright, clean and modern. The truth is that the hotel is dim and in need of some serious upgrades. The one elevator is small, holding up to four small people, and probably cannot accommodate a wheelchair. The hallway on the fifth floor, as well as the stairwell between fifth...

Went on my first vacation with my boyfriend to San Fransisco, and I'd always drove through it with my family to get to Disney Land but never stopped to look around or anything so I really didn't know my way around.

This place is a little piece of REAL San Francisco. The building is historic, the beds are amazing and the drinks downstairs are phenomenal! I have to thank our desk hostess Kat for accommodating our requests and just being so nice. Thank you, Kat!
