      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 …

We were walking through Pacific heights when we had our next run in with American race relations where a guy walking ahead of us started yelling at everyone white zombies , this wasn't directed at anyone in particular which was considerate of him. We picked up some fresh wild salmon and salad to for dinner , which was very nice and very ...

      21st June, Saturday We pick Steph up from the bus station and it was an emotional time for her because Matt and Steph had just recently broken up. She had flown from Denver into LA and took the bus up to meet us at San Fran. Allana and I went on an awesome website called priceline which is were u take a blind booking by bidding for a price you want to pay. We were lucky and scored a 4 1/2 star Garden Inn Hilton hotel room in San Mateo which is just south of San Fran. ...

      With the hobos getting more and more random and somewhat aggressive the idea of them living in what seems to be steam filled sewers below is more believable every day. Maybe I watched to much teenage mutant ninja turtles as a kid or the latest batman but every cover I walk over I now look ...

      ... Lori's right next door for breakfast. Good food and service. Then we set out on the trolley toward the Ferry building (passing lots of regular mall stores along the way). But we totally liked the Ferry Building - various independent gift and food stores and a large farmers' market.

      Back on the trolley, looking for a particular haberdashery that FIL likes, "Cable Car Clothiers." He was looking for a particular chapeau, but did not find one he wanted. ...
