We got the cable car down to the wharf. It was crowded and over the weekend the queue went for two blocks of people waiting for a ride. The steep hills of San Fransisco were very evident riding the cable car. Down at the wharf we went to the Maritime National Historic Park where we went on several ships that are in the process of restoration, very …

We got a bus to the bridge then walked the1.7 miles of the bridge. The mist was over the ocean unlike Saturday when we couldn't see the top of the bridge. It was very windy and noisy but the views of the bay were spectacular.We got back on the bus and returned to the wharf area
We had seafood at Pier 41 then went to Pier 39 to watch the sea …

Sequoias, yachts, crabs and more hills

A travel blog entry by iainog


Day three in San Francisco and an early start with the tour bus coming to collect us at 9am. Our guide today was Richard and a great fan of darts, amongst other sports. We were joined by a bunch of mostly Americans so there was much banter about who had the best football team and then I think I dozed off while they carried on with baseball. Have …

    The room was ample sized but the bathroom was miniscule- like a shoebox. Staff was good. Main complaint was no executive lounge.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton San Francisco Union Square

    Executive rooms


    Stayed for 7 nights in an executive room on the 43rd Floor.



    Stayed for two nights and loved it. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the hotel gave us breakfast coupons for both days at a cost of $18.50 for each person for each day. They then upgraded us to a deluxe suite with an LCD TV mounted on the wall, a mammoth desk and beautifully decorated. As if this wasn't enough, on our last evening they sent us chilled champagne. Everyone we dealt with was very friendly and extremely helpful. We had fabulous recordbreaking warm weather and an overall wonderful experience And we only paid $75 a night on Priceline! Can't wait to return next year.

    Hilton fine, but pricy


    Recently spent week at the Hilton, March 1-8, when hotel was busy with mammoth medical meetings. When reserving, I asked about robes and was told they were provided. Turned out I had to phone for them, but they were delivered promptly. Tower 1, #3173, was smallish 31st floorexec room that had great view of Twin Peaks, City Hall, but needed some updating. Not worth $250/night with 45th executive floor breakfast(decent), fairly greasy evening snacks. ( when did they start charging $5 for the not that great wine?)



    Both my partner and myself are HH Gold and had prebooked an Exec floor room requesting a high level room and early check in. We have just returned and had a pretty dissapointing stay.

    Will Not Return


    I just returned from a 4-night stay at the Hilton San Francisco. The hotel was OK, but there were problems.

    Location is okay


    The hotel is actually pretty nice - it is huge. They have business center and a nice spa / work out facility (it is $10.00). The room was very nice, clean. We were in Tower 2 which looked updated. Tower 1 looked like it might be in the process of. Parking is expensive - $42.00/day. Area around hotel was a little sketchy - a lot of riff/raff hanging around but the Conceirge recommended serveral late night dining Italian restaurants within walking distance that were right on. We also enjoyed a cocktail in the Sky Restaurant in the hotel. Fantastic Views. We would definately stay here again.

    Average, Good location Not four stars


    The Hilton is well located off of Union Square easily accessible to the BART and rental car agencies across the street. Our room in Tower I was small but clean with a comfortable king bed with nice linens. It could use a bit of updating. Maid service was throrough and prompt. Security was obvious throughout the property and our room key was checked when we came in late one evening. It was a competent enough stay but nothing special. We chose this property due to our $75 bid off of Priceline. For that rate it was fine, but if I was paying full price, a higher level of service and luxury would have been expected. Check in was problematic. I had booked the reservation in my name only, but my husband was going to check in before me. I had called the hotel 2 days before to make arrangements for him to be allowed in the room and they told me since I had booked through Priceline they could not help me and to call back the day of arrival. I had called back at 9 am on the date of arrival advised the hotel that he would be arriving at around 12 pm and to let him in. I requested a nonsmoking king at that time as well.

    Great room, good location


    I stayed at the Hilton SF for one night and it was definitely worth the price paid. Booked via Priceline ($75 bid) and requested a non-smoking room in advance. I have elite status with Hilton HHonors program but I don't expect any favors with a Priceline rate. However, this particular hotel has kiosks where you can check in yourself.. and the best part is that the kiosks do not treat you differently because of the rate! I was able to attach my Hilton HHonors number (no points accrued) and got upgraded to a mini-suite in Tower 2. Very nice! So, definitely worth a try if this applies to you..

    Hilton ok but.....


    The hotel said it had many restaurants,which it did, but many were not open, one, open at different times, so we ended up going out for meals many times. The cafe,which was one of the ones open, was pricey, two soups and salads were nearly $20....was there for a mtg with my husband,so it would have been nice to be able to eat there often. Rooms were fine though.
