Having stayed in San Francisco many times, I think for the price I paid I was expecting much less. Was I wrong! This was a fantastic hotel, with a friendly and helpful staff. The room was gorgeous, the hotel was clean and soothing. The amenities like the meditation room and the library made it a very cool place to be....

When my friend told me the price of the hotel she booked, I was a bit concerned. I couldn't imagine getting such a good value in a city like San Francisco. It is true, the neighborhood is not impressive.....but it was certainly convenient. I did not feel uncomfortable on the streets surrounding the hotel. The room was very nicely decorated...

I have found Personality Hotels such as this property to always be welcoming, customer service orientated and their ambiance is always enjoyable. Rooms are well kept, beds are comfortable and with modern style. Parking fees are moderate, but they always let you keep your car parked past the time period at no charge, which is a nice perk too.

Friends of mine and I were looking for a hotel near the center of San Francisco and opted for the Hotel Metropolis and we were not disappointed. Some of the reviews here talk about the neighbourhood as if it was skid row... Fact of the matter is that anyone whose been to any major city anywhere knows that there are...

Hotel Metropolis is a gem in the city. The close proximity to the BART and cable car/muni stops are wonderful. It is in the Loin but if you MYOB you will be fine. The rooms are sparsely furnished but it will do just fine for a place to lay your head. I liked that we had a refrig in the...

I had looked this place up and seen travelers photos and what not and thought I knew what to expect. I wanted a good place to stay that was close to union square and the trains, etc.The room itself was tiny. This normally wouldn't be a problem, but I was with my brother and it was literally almost too small...

When I heard that the Mighty Mos Def was going to perform at a NYE party in SF, I knew I had found a venue to attend. The challenge was finding a place to stay that was within walking distance from the party (YB Center for the Arts in SoMA) that wasn't going to break my bank. I had about...

We love this hotel. The location is great. The price too. It is just about one block from the Powell St. cable car turn around. That also means it is one block to BART and the MUNI underground so you can easily get around San Francisco and the whole Bay Area. They give you nice little amenities in the room...

Booked a room for myself, and another for coworkers traveling to a conference at the Moscone center. Getting to the Metropolis from the airport was super easy, just hop on the BART to the Powell St. station and it's one block up Market. The Metropolis is close to the Westfield shopping center (upscale mall) and a lot of downtown shopping,...

I got a group rate at this hotel, which was much less than that of the main conference hotel. I was alone, and the staff was very helpful. My first room was noisy, so I asked for another and was offered a wonderful room on the top floor. The neighborhood was bad, but not much different from the Hilton up...
