Many of the employees are functionally illiterate, Several employees feel that their current jobs are made simply too demanding to take on the additional meetings that would be necessary. You GO, Sandra Wilford!

We have an overnight stay here at the end of Jan 2017. Great Location at the entrance of China Town. Rooms were small but very tidy. Our room was on the main street side, so a little noisy, but typical for the city. Very easy walk down to union square to get to City attractions. No problem staying here again...

Good value and Ideal for short visits. The hotel appeared to have been renovated very nicely. The Reception was very good, cheerful and helpful. The location of the hotel is just what we hoped for; walking distance to Union Square and Market Street. Getting an Uber cab in the area was very easy.

Stayed over night in a double room. The location was great for what my family wanted to do which was stay in the China Town area. The price was decent and the hotel looked clean with modern features. The room; however, was small. The photos are deceptive and does not show the general size of the room making it look...

Stayed here for 4 night exploring the city. Great location for public transport, and easy to get an UBER pickup outside. No breakfast although coffee served, never tried it. Posh Bagels two streets down was a great alternative. Internet slow (even for surfing and email). Had a 6th floor room facing the street, quiet with the windows shut. Clean. Friendly...

This hotel often gets low ratings because it sits in the shadow of some of San Francisco's finest. Just four blocks from Union Square this old hotel has been updated with a bright lobby and modern rooms. But don't expect the Marriott. The staff is well trained and competent. The one elevator is slow and the AC/Heating is a single...

We stayed two nights at the Grant Plaza Hotel. With San Francisco's expectedly high room prices, this was a very reasonably priced hotel, and its location was simply outstanding--just a block north of the Chinatown gate, with eateries and shops very close by, including Union Square only a few blocks away. Hotel was easy to walk to from the Powell...

We enjoyed staying here during our trip to San Francisco. This hotel is such a great value compared to other places to stay in SF and considering its location. It's very centrally located close to everything and to transport links. It's just on the border of Financial District and Chinatown, so it gets a bit busy with traffic noise in...

I stayed for one night at the Grant Plaza Hotel in San Francisco and my experience was terrible. They have great location, affordable prices and good advertising pictures but the reality is not quite the same as we see online. Room was tinny and smelling smoke, although there was a sign saying that smoke wasn't allowed. The bathroom was dirty,...

Hotel was fine until I got bed bug bites! Had a very uncomfortable and extremely itchy flight home with weeping sores. Was dosed up on anti histamines.
