This timeshare resort is an independent timeshare resort not affiliated with any of the big corporations. It does not have all the amenities that are offered by the big name places. However, Powell Place is very well maintained and well located in Nob Hill. Powell Place comprises of two apartment buildings that got converted to timeshare units. As mentioned in...

If I could give this place 0 stars I would. I was given a room 4 floors up, no elevator so plan on traveling light. This was an attic room so there was no view through the locked windows save the one window that you could egress to a fire escape. Room was beyond hot and they offered no air...

We are in our 60's and had to walk up 4 flights of stairs to our room - I guess that's because we were put up "on the poor side of town" and no elevator. San Francisco was going through a heat wave and no air conditioning. Also, the kitchenette really needs upgrading - appliances from the 1980's. One good...

We have stayed at Powell Place several times. The superb and consistent superior performance by the professional staff makes each visit most pleasurable. The units are well maintained. The Nob Hill location is unmatched. The cable car lines are one half block away.

As others have said, this timeshare is in an excellent location. We lucked out and about three weeks before our trip, got notice from RCI that a 1 bedroom (2 max) was available. The timeshare sent us a letter beforehand explaining their very strict policy on the maximum, only the people on the reservation can stay, etc. When we got...

The location is perfect. You are on Nobb Hill and central to most everything. The cable car stop for all three major routes is within 100 yards at the intersection. A major bonus! The hotel is on a hill but then so is most of San Fransisco! We had room 106. A well kept one bedroom on the elevator side....

After making a reservation 6 months in advance and taking all day to drive to San Francisco, I was shocked that my wife had told me the man at the front desk refused to give her our room that we had already paid for. Furthermore I was disgusted to hear that he had insulted her. Thinking there must be some...

We have our timeshare at Powell Place. We've stayed there a few times. The staff is warm and friendly. The rooms are clean, quaint and comfortable. It's like having an apartment in the city. It's located on a hill so there's lots of walking. Great location and less than a mile from Union Square and Chinatown. If you want to...

My wife and I treated ourselves to a getaway here at Easter. It is a splendid Victorian nestled among the classy high rises of Nob Hill, just a short walk to China Town, Grace's Cathedral, and the Mark Hopkins, Fairmont and Ritz-Carlton hotels. The cable car, which clangs all day long just outside the front door, added to the old-time...
