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....

The candid photos previously posted are a very fair reflection of what I got. Its not a resort. But its got: - clean bathrooms - Safe and secure rooms - predictable staff - great/ safe location - free internet - No bugs, pimps, or thugs I'll stay there again. The price is great.

My husband and I spent 9 nights at the Grant last month and overall were pleased, especially for the price we got ($720 incl tax). Pros: you cannot fault the location of this hotel, only a block or so from Union Sq, Chinatown, close to all the major shopping and a cable car practically outside the door to take you...
