Travel Blogs from San Francisco
Over the last few days in usa we rode from Santa Cruz to San Fran and headed along the skyline rd through La Honda and getting very low on fuel we pulled into Alices restuarant for fuel and lunch. Not the real one but it was started by Alice at least. then more of no 35 and down to the coast for ride to the Golden gate Bridge and on no 1 and …
Hallo iedereen, Vandaag terug vroeg opgestaan, een ontbijt genomen bij het hotel, van alles en nog wat, chocomelk, fruitsap, croissant, banaantje, aangezien dit toch in de prijs zat. Maar bij het verlaten van de ontbijtruimte moesten we alles betalen. Blijkbaar was er een communicatiefout gebeurd. Als we dat geweten hadden, dan was ons ontbijt …
Hoi iedereen, Vandaag een eerste volle dag in San Francisco. De dag begon al vroeg gezien we een "Early Bird Tour" geboekt hadden om Alcatraz te bezoeken. Gezien we om 8u15 op de ferryboot moesten en we toch makkelijk nog een halfuur ons moesten verplaatsen, stonden we om 6u30 op... We namen de tram richting de pieren en werden direct onder …
Goeiemorgen iedereen! Vandaag vertrokken we voldaan uit ons hotel in Oakhurst. Yosemite heeft een dikke indruk op ons na gelaten waar we bij het ontbijt nog even over na gepraat hebben. Tijdens het ontbijt hebben we ook nog een nieuwe vriendin gemaakt... Plots stond er een super lieve American Stafford naast ons aan tafel. Echt een hele prachtige …
Rising early, we packed up the car and headed out to San Francisco! We descended the mountainside for at least an hour – lots of winding roads. Reilly asked me to hand him his book that was under my seat, but I couldn't for fear that I would get car sick. Finally, we hit level ground.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Mark Twain San Francisco
Beware of this location
This hotel is among many shelters and there are crack heads galore in the area of Union Square. Sheets were dirty and room unpleasant. 1 person ran the entire Hotel at check in. Try Cow Hollow, less $ and FAR superior location.
I love San Fran- but this was a bummer
we were looking forward to a getaway for a few nights... booked off of hotels at the executive hotel mark twain in san fran- the union square area... the hotel wasn't what we were expecting- hotels gave it a 3 1/2 star- i would rate it more a 2... it looked great from their website- but it wasn't. it was really noisy due to the street below... even with the windows closed- it was LOUD. we parked a few blocks away and had our car broken into- definitely a shady area at night. PAY FOR VALET OR GARAGE PARKING IF YOU STAY IN THIS AREA- it's worth it.
We stayed at the Mark Twain in April, 2005. It was in a great location -- 2 blocks from the start of the cable car line. It was very clean and the staff was very helpful. I would definitely stay there again.
Also, we ate at O'Douls pub right up the street. It was really good and inexpensive.
I stayed here recently on a business trip. I paid about $80.00 a night.
We stayed for 5 nights at the end of October 2004. The staff were mainly friendly and helpful and the room had all the basic facilities that we expected although, as they had tried to cram 2 queen size beds into a fairly small room, there wasn't too much space. The hotel is centrally located, just behind the Hilton and within easy walking distance of the major shops and plenty of restaurants.
it started when i tried to book the hotel, i had a question so i called...and called...and called... no one picked up, just ringing. finally when the woman answered the phone she was uninformed and put me on hold for over 5 minutes.
We had a good stay.
Stayed at hotel during mid September 2004. Our hotel stay went very well. I thought about cancelling our reservation after reading the trip advisor reviews. I am glad I did not cancel. The hotel staff, especially Eric, were friendly and helpful. Also, our room was clean, and the furniture was okay. The noise level was low except for the mornings. However, the noise was not uncommon for a busy area in the city. I would definitely stay at this hotel in the future.

Stayed here for 4 nights at the end of a northern california trip. The price is good and the location is close to all union square activities but the hotel is pretty terrible. The desk staff were nice and the lobby is nice looking but the rooms are tiny. Tiny would be okay and is understandable in an older building but they were very DIRTY! - the carpet was stained and needed to be replaced, the bathroom was dirty - hair all over the floor, the sheets were ripped in many places and clearly very old and the window are filthy. We stayed in a room right on the main street which was so noisy we didn't sleep for four nights. Earplugs helped a bit. Of course the hotel can't do anything about being on a city street - that I understand, but the Hilton (across the street) allows their tour buses to idle from 4am on and the noise and exhaust fumes are ridiculous! Point is, nice people, not a good hotel - for the money you can easily spend only a little more and be somewhere nicer - not to mention CLEANER!
Arrived mid-late August for 2 night stay. Reception were really friendly and lobby clean and presentable. Check in and Check out really simple and easy.
Stayed there May/03 and had OK stay.
We only stayed here one night while on our way to Lake Tahoe. We loved San Fran. We probably won't stay here again. Would prefer Fisherman's Wharf location. Not much to do around Union Square. Hotel was OK. Check in was simple, pretty good rate. You must valet park. The room was small and I was surprised to find it had no Central A/C. We had to open the windows, which was OK for early May. Rather old building converted to a hotel. Was OK, but wouldn't stay again.
