    Historical Traveler Reviews The Grant Hotel San Francisco

    Great hotel, great location

    from

    A great four nights in SF at The Grant (July 20-23)! The location is just fabulous (at Powell and Bush) right on the Cable Car line. Bought the City Pass that gave me unlimited Muni (bus, rail, trolley, and cable car) rides. Along with access to some museums. The pass allowed me to save walking up hills by jumping on the Cable Car whenever I wanted. The room was large (had the queen for $80 a night) and clean. Though as you see in the pictures, not decorated. Was a bit disappointed at first when I got in to the room and the windows were open to show me a wonderful view of a brick wall that was part of an alley. Fortunately the alley was not a service alley, but more of a ventilation alley. So I may not have had a view, but I did have a great nights sleep, since the room was very quiet. The maid service was attentive and thorough. The front desk staff was polite, but not very chatty. No problem in them holding my bag after checking out till my red-eye flight on the the 24th. They offer a continental breakfast each morning, that is well stocked and not some cheap baked goods either. Good places to eat near by. You might even get to meet the "San Francisco Twins" at Uncle Vito's Pizza at the corner of Bush and Powell.

    Great little hotel, Value and Location

    from

    This hotel is a great little find, it is located in NobHill a very nice neighbourhood and within a minute of Union square the main shopping area and within two minutes of China town. It is clean, rooms spacious and has some charm. It is family-run and is an ideal base to explore this wonderful city

    Do yourself a favour, stay here, its great value for money.

    What a good deal

    from

    Just got back from a west coast trip that included Frisco,Vegas and LA.This hotel was excellent value for money we had a party of 6 with 3 rooms and each one was good,clean and well furnished.Only draw back is ask for a room away from the front as the traffic noise starts early and the dumpster was out about 4 o'clock in the morning.

    Location is great as well,staff friendly.

    What a bargain

    from

    I have stayed at the Grant off and on for about 4 years now, usually about twice a year. I keep going back because it is such a great location- right in Union Square about 3 blocks from Chinatown- and it's also very affordable. A couple of years ago the hotel was redecorated, so while the price is nice, the rooms are not at all shabby. You'll be surprised to find huge bathrooms, nice furnishings and a comfortable space for a great deal, about $70. The last 2 times I went to the Grant the owner said he remembered me and since I was a "regular" gave me an even better deal!

    Quite a find!

    from

    very well located (half block along and one up from Union Square), clean , not too pricey and surprisingly quiet! Room has bathroom, TV, fridge etc, free coffee and tea all day in reception and also free internet access!

    no frills but perfectly good enough. Would stay again.

    I do recommend this hotel

    from

    it's clean , inexpensive and near to Union Square, this hotel was so nice for me!

    I do recommend this hotel

    Basic, cheap and central

    from

    Stayed here in late April and would stay here again.

    Basic but very clean room and located close to Union Square. Cheap but contact hotel directly by email for cheaper rates.

    Overall staff were friendly and free internet access was handy but hard to get on most of the time.

    Cheap and okay

    from

    The room was extremely small and smelled strongly of stale smoke. Even the bed sheets were permeated with the smoke smell, which might indicate that they had not been changed or the cleaning person had smoked. The comforter was so bad I put it out in the hallway. (As we all know, most hotels do not wash the comforter unless it's obviously dirty so never use them!) There was no AC but fortunately most days do not require it since the bay keeps SF pretty cool.

    The only upsides were the the price and location. We paid $55/night + tax.

    Inexpensive and Clean

    from

    You're not going to impress many people by staying at this hotel, but it provides the basics (plus a little more) for an incredibly low price. We paid $74 (including a 14% hotel tax) per night for a room with queen size bed. That's hard to find in the suburbs, never mind in downtown San Francisco!

    PROS

    Great location near Union Square

    Modern, clean bathroom

    Good bed & pillows

    Friendly staff

    Surprisingly quiet, given its location

    Television, clock radio, safe in room

    CONS

    Not fancy

    Could use some paint

    There are several charming bed & breakfast style hotels within a block that cost more, but are still reasonable. If you're wanting to impress someone, like your wife, you might want to consider staying at one of those hotels. the Golden Gate Hotel, the Cornell Hotel de France, the Petite Auberge and the White Swan Inn are all less than a block from the Grant Hotel.

    Grant Hotel - Bush St, San Francisco

    from

    We stayed at the Grant Hotel in May, it was an excellent location - close to cable cars, chinatown, and down town. It was basic accomodation, but clean. Staff were very helpful and the free internet access for guests came in handy.

    Wow, a great first day - I caught the iconic cable car, checked out the Ferry Building marketplace with lots of delicious food shops, wandered along the waterfront then up Telegraph Hill to Coit Tower, with amazing views of the bay and from the Bay Bridge, around to Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. The tower was built to as a …

    What did I think of New York? I was disappointed. Everyone I had talked to loves it. I found it incredibly dirty, and you can't move for people. There are 13,000 yellow cabs, and 32 billion dollars are generated by the tourism industry each year - hence the people. It could just be that it's the end of our holiday and we have had a ...

From up there we realized how hilly San Francisco actually is and it was a funny sight to see all the little bumps. We then paid a visit to the Beat Museum in which Jack Kerouac plays a large role. The literary Beat Movement originated in San Francisco and I thus felt obliged to buy his book ‘On the Road’ ...

Anne had already driven in the heart of the city on Tuesday while Grant and I were in Berkeley, so she had some idea of the streets. She took a detour off the map because she wanted to drive down Hyde Street, one of the same streets that the cable cars run on.

    ... on the boat by 9am. After a short jaunt across the bay, we arrived at the most famous prison on earth. While it's pretty touristy these days, it was a great experience. We wandered through the cells, explored the rec yard, learnt about the escapes and listened to the audio log. By 11.30, we took the boat back across the bay and had a Cab drop us at Alamo Square - that line of flash houses you see in ALL the rom-coms. After a few photos, we began walking to ...
