You should really pick this place for your stay, the rooms are nice, clean and well appointed and the people are extremely friendly and helpful. The guys at the desk are really accommodating along with the girl in the coffee shop also . We had a great stay here

Room Tip: Take the king bed room

We were in San Francisco on business, have not been to The City for a while. Booked at the Tilden we had business around Union Square. The Tilden has a good location right by the Hilton tower. It is the Tenderloin to be sure, however easy to get anywhere in the city from here. As long as you don't mind the tenderloin's panhandlers etc. The hotel it's self is a modernized vintage property so there are some carry overs in architecture and style. We found it fun and quirky but no problems at all. The staff are excellent. There is a little cafe in the front and also a bar/cafe in the evenings called the Douglas room. Great cocktails and the best Philly Cheesesteak I have had anywhere including Philly. Overall, a great value, good location and great staff.

Thank you so much for your kind feedback! We love your description of our property as 'modernized vintage' and I'm glad you enjoyed its charm. We hope you come back for more and do spread the word about the best Philly cheese-steak!

Sincerely,

I stayed at the Tilden Hotel for 3 days while on a business trip to SF last week and it turned out to be a good experience. The front desk people were warm and helpful and the check-in was hassle free. The hotel building is obviously an old building that has been refurbished. My room was quite spacious with all amenities provided (iron board, coffee maker, TV, hair dryer, etc.). One does come across homeless people on the streets in this noisy neighbourhood but I felt safe during most parts of the day/evening walking to and fro the hotel (post 10 PM you are better off taking an Uber or a taxi). Overall, this is a good VFM proposition while in downtown SF, both while travelling for business or for leisure.

We had a great stay at the Tilden in a standard room with two double beds. Great, convenient location close to Union Square, fantastic staff, very tasty food and drinks and very thoughtful design to highlight the character of the hotel. Rooms are clean with high end, nice toiletries and amenities. Perfect for a weekend stay!

Behind the modernized lobby and photos on the website, this is an old building. Dusty carpets, old tub, poor lighting in room, breakers that go out when blow drying, strange noises. Cafe doesn't even serve coffee in ceramic ware, only paper cups. That's not how it looks on website. Not fabulous.

Greetings,

The Tilden hotel is the latest version of a building that has stood through decades. We have provided as many modern elements while maintaining the charm of the building's classic age. We will be addressing the issues you have brought up about the website's images and will provide more consistent value.

Thank you,
Kunal Khandwala
