The hotel was well located, close to everything. The staff was friendly and the woman was especially helpful with great sugestions on places to eat. The pool was clean and the bar had a very impressive vinyl collection as well as a great ambiance.

I hadn't really heard of the hotel before booking it, and I'm glad I went in without any expectations. Super fun, small hotel that was very quaint and had a ton of personality. Loved that the chambers bar and restaurant was connected to the hotel patio / pool area! Central location in the city, so it's a perfect location. While...

This hotel is not for everyone but it is great. You may not want to walk around (although I have never had issues) but that is what Uber/Lyft is for. Hotel staff are incredibly friendly and know how to make you feel welcome. Pool area is great to just hang out and chill. The bar is great with good food...

The Phoenix is hip and in the TL so it's funky. The reason I will always stay here though is that the staff is just the nicest group of people. I feel so at home there. The food in the restaurant is good and if you are in the mood for something less fancy, the restaurant across the street, Mangosteen...

The location was great in which you can walk to just about everywhere. Don't let the neighborhood throw you off. People are just doing their thing are are easy going as well. Not sure when I'll be back in SF but it will be back here when I do.

Great location, very good value. Loved my stay. Stayed in more expensive (sterile) hotels around the world were I felt isolated. This hotel fits the San Francisco mood. Located next to Little Saigon, easy walk to Chinatown and SOMA.

Really enjoyed my stay here. A little bit loud one night in the pool area. Rooms are very clean. Restaurant has great fresh food. All very hip and trendy at an affordable price for SF. Good desk for working.

Met all my expectations, even with a club night and a wedding staying at the hotel my pregnant wife and I had no issues. Great having free parking, and close enough to main attractions of the city. Quirky rooms had a very funky cottage vibe, the pool was beautiful.

Located in the up and coming Tenderloin, the Phoenix is one of our preferred spots, especially if we have to have a car in the City. Getting there is easy, it is close to everything (streetcar to the Ferry Building? Check. Bus to Fisherman's Wharf? Check. Polk Gulch, Little Saigon, Music Hall, Opera House, Bill Graham Hall? Check check check)....
