My wife and I stayed here 5 nights in September. When we walked in we wondered where we had booked. The room was very basic with a cupboard for a wardrobe and very few hangers - none for trousers. However we settled ourselves in and began to explore San Francisco. We found it a very good base and even though...

We got in on Saturday and found we had to park in the garage across the street, while they validated, it still cost us almost $20 a day to park! The elevator wasn't working but they said they had called someone and they should have it fixed by in a couple of hours so we carried our luggage up to...

This place was just fine. Everything was as advertised or promised - clean, large bathroom, large room, closet, in room safe, fridge, easy check in, maid service, linens, desk, alarm clock, good location (near Union Square and Moscone Centre), phone, soaps, free wifi in the lobby (which I could occassionally pick up in my room on the second floor), helpful...

I stayed at the Grant Hotel over Labor Day weekend with my partner. Based on some of the reviews, I requested a room away from Bush Street to avoid traffic noise and my request was accomodated. The room (queen sized bed) was neat, clean and recently renovated. Keep in mind that this is an older building (I'm guessing built around...

I was very skeptical of this hotel due to some of the reviews I read here on TripAdvisor. However, I was very pleased with my experience. I went there knowing it was not a five star hotel and I would only get the basics. I brought my own alarm clock. They do have hair dryers at the hotel and an...

The Hotel Grant is in a great location in San Francisco - two blocks (3 minutes) from Chinatown, only a couple more (c. 8-10 mins) from North Beach, and if you go three blocks downhill you're right in Union Square. We walked pretty much everywhere and always felt safe coming back through the area round the hotel right into the...

I stayed only a few days in S.F. for sightseeing in May 2006. I would rate this hotel as average, but due to it's excellent location - only two blocks to Union Sq and to Chinatown - and the low rates I strongly recommend the Grant Hotel. It depends on what you expect: I only wanted a clean and quite...

This was the worst hotel I think I've ever stayed in. Guess that's what I get for being cheap, but never again! The smell when you walk in the door will make you think you've accidently stepped into the local nursing home. The owners do not even pretend to care that they can barely speak English, and they are terribly...

I was a little doubtful when I booked the hotel as English is not the first language of the owners, but I was given a confirmation number and check-in went smoothly. I had requested a room at the back as I had heard that the street noise could make sleeping difficult. I was offered the keys to two rooms so...

This hotel has a great location next to historic cable car sites. I was surprised when I asked if they knew how to get to the Top of the Mark that we were only two blocks away! (uphill, of course). We took the advice from this site and asked for 5th floor near the back and had no street noise....
