Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Zetta San Francisco
Beautiful hotel, lovely room. Classy decor. Quiet. Comfy. I've stayed in nearly every major downtown hotel in San Francisco and this one was the classiest, and by far the least expensive. They didn't waste a bunch of money on fountains in the lobby, so I guess that's where the savings comes in. The only weakness, to me, was the lack of high-speed internet. They need to get with the program on that. Otherwise, an excellent place to stay.
Stayed at the Hotel Milano for 5 nights. the Hotel was excellent for the value ($109 per night). It was very quiet. The hot tub was a little disappointing.The area around the Milano, just south of Market Street was very interesting with lots of street goings on. There were many homeless but I never felt threatened.The Hotel was very close to all public transportation. I never had to walk more than a block.Don't miss the sea lions at fisherman's Wharf!!!
We moved to the Milano after a very disapointing one night stay elsewhere. For the same price we got a clean, quiet, spacious room and excellent help from the staff. The difference was like night and day.
We'll definately return. Your best value in downtown San Francisco.
A wonderful place to stay! In the heart of SF--a few blocks from the cable car stop and surrounded by great shopping--we had it all within a few minute walk. Boudin Bakery across one street and Starbucks across the other made breakfast a breeze. Our room was large, well appointed, very clean and the hotel was very well kept. We had no problems whatsoever and enjoyed our quiet stay. The front desk service was very professional and helpful. We highly recommend Hotel Milano!
This hotel is nothing but SUPERB! From the room, location, staff to the price! A must if you like boutique hotels.
Nice Hotel, Excellent Value
I had a great stay at the Hotel Milano, and considering the price I paid, the value was exceptional. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. It's a small hotel, so the lobby is small. There is a restaurant next to the lobby but I believe it was not officially part of the hotel, so no room service from them. Room was clean and nicely furnished. Style is more modern. The room was quiet and comfortable. Location was great, not too far from Union Square, and close to a Trolley stop. Easy walk to the Moscone Convention Center. Since it's right downtown, parking is an issue. They have valet parking for $24 a night, and it takes 20 minutes to get the car. Overall, a great stay.
This hotel is simply superb.
The rooms are huge, with terrific airconditioning that either warmed or cooled the room to a great level in about 3 minutes.
The bathroom was very clean and had a whirl bath. The shower was a bit weak however.
The bathrobes were a nice touch and the toiletries all pleasant.
Double glazing kept the room very quiet.
Only dissappontment was the room service food.
For visiting San Francisco the location is terrific, with a MUNI/BART terminal and F line street car 1 min walk away.
Two thums up.
I loved Hotel Milano. We have stayed at many hotels in SF and have always been disappointed. We pay $150 for tony rooms that didn't impress us. Then we found Hotel Milano. The staff was great and extremely helpful. The room was huge (especially compared to other SF rooms) and very clean. The price was great too. We paid $109 and that included valet parking. It was so quiet, you couldn't even hear the street noise. We finally found our SF hotel!
The Hotel Milano
I just had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Milano for 2 nights, and It was Awesome. Tremendous staff, Friendly dosent even describe it! The rates were great considering I was practically in the middle of everything. Highly reccomend them.
Although I would say the decor was more Asian then European.. it still ws AWESOME!
Italian Theme a stretch
The Hotel Milano occupies an old building in downtown S.F. that was obviously built long before A.C. was popular. There are "breezeways" between the rooms, so that each room has windows on at least two walls. The inside has been nicely done in elegant black, tans and beige, with an attempt at a subdued Italian theme. However, the sushi bar didn't fit in too well, I thought.
The room I was in was very nice, a big, very firm king size bed, table and chair, occasional table and two other chairs, and a large entertainment center with a TV and honor bar, natch. An ironing board & iron was in the very narrow closet (not wide enough to hang the clothes in perpendicularly; would have to be at an angle.) A safe and hair dryer were also provided, but no coffee pot. There's no ice machine on the 3rd floor, which even suprised the maid that I asked.
The room temperature was quite comfortable, the shower water was hot instantly, and the room was quiet. Lots of nice, fluffy towels, and the soap was even of very high quality. The elevators were quiet and quick. Being a bit claustrophobic, though, I tend to use the stairs whenever I can. I was suprised to learn that neither staircase lets out into the lobby on the ground floor! To get out, you have to either go through alarmed emergency doors onto the street, or walk through the restaurant kitchen. I later learned that, if you exit on the 2nd floor, a grand staircase descends into the lobby. Nothing on the exit map indicated this, however.
I was amused by the sign on the street for "Valet Parking - See Attendant if Attendant is not available..." Huh?
It is pretty convenient to the Moscone Center and the shopping area of Market street, and an easy walk to the cable car turntable. Although not a 5-star experience, a very nice place.

... have easily skipped Angel Island, was used as a military station and then for immigration, like an Ellis Island for the West, but it was nice to see all the same! In the afternoon we got a ferry to Alcatraz and did a tour around the cells of the prison. It was cool to find out about the different stories of the prisoners and about all of the escapes and escape attempts at this high security prison. Really somewhere to see if your in ...

Within the cabin there is an assortment of electronics, pillows and blankets, food and a cooler, Harry Potter books 1-3 on CD, the four of us and the world famous Emotional Aide Dog.

... Communist Party of the day. Maybe the reason for this was that most of the leadership had come from the anarcho-syndicalist "One Big Union" movement which had been so strong on the Pacific Coast a generation before. Maybe it was because you can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant, I'm not really sure. Despite a river of theories no one is. Whatever attracted such left-of-centre activity, the vibe remains to this day as a palpable beacon which attracts and invites ...
