Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Mayflower San Francisco
Me and my boyfriend first stayed here in September 2006 and after reading the reviews on this site, we thought it was the best way to go. I'm so glad that we stayed at this hotel. We loved it so much that we came back to San Francisco in March 2007 and stayed at the same hotel. Coincidentally, we got the exact same suite both times. When we went there the first time, they just finished renovating all the rooms and main dining hall. When we came back the second time, they were renovating their front desk (which was already looking beautiful by the time we left)
As a single female, I was a bit apprehensive about staying by myself in SF after reading some reviews of other hotels (did heaps of research) but I stayed at the Mayflower for 2 nights and LOVED it. The staff were so friendly (especially Hester), nothing was too much trouble - even pointed out the free use of computers. My room had a really comfy queen bed, bathroom with a glorious bath (just the thing for relaxing after traipsing around) and a kitchenette. It was by no means a modern hotel, but I didn't want to stay at some sterile one. The Mayflower just oozes charm, and the lift (elevator) was just gorgeous. My room was on the street side, but I had no trouble with noise at all, except for one fire truck, and that went by quickly anyway.
Originally we had reservations for one night (10/21) at Stratford Hotel but they were overbooked and sent us to the Hotel Mayflower. We were skeptical because our intent was to be a few steps away from the starting line of the Nike Women's Marathon at Union Square. The receptionist, Billy, told us the Hotel Mayflower was a 5 minute walk north of Union Square or he would pay for our cab fare to the hotel, so we accepted. We met Nancy, who noticed the concerned look on our faces for being sent to their hotel and she immediately reassured us that we were in a safe neighborhood, in Nob Hill and not near the Tenderloin. She even gave us a complimentary choice of red or white wine and the best room (California Street) in the hotel.
We stayed here 3 nights (17, 18 and 19 October) for around $ 90 for a standard room with a queen size bed.
Mehr als ein Hotel, ein Zuhause!
Sofort spürten meine Frau und ich, mit welcher Liebe dieses Hotel geführt wird. Jedes Zimmer, jede Etage wird von einem lokalen Künstler mit Sujets aus San Francisco geziehrt. Lassen Sie sich nicht vom Preis im "Motelbereich" abschrecken, hier fehlt wirklich nichts zu einem angenehmen Aufenthalt. Die Lage am Nob Hill ist optimal für die Erkundung der Stadt, ob zu Fuss, mit dem Bus oder den Cable Cars. Praktisch nebenan finden Sie Shops und Laundrey. Gerne kehrten wir ins Mayflower zurück!
Great hotel, Quiet, Great location
this was a great hotel, Included wireless internet Our room had a small kitchen two queen beds and it was nice and big. The staff was incredible, and it was centrally located aprox 7 minutes walking to union square.
Sorry i dont have any more pictures, but trust me its a very nice place, resently renovated very nice and confy beds.
The hotel has just been renovated, so the rooms and bathrooms are clean and neat. There is a nice continental breakfast included with a tasteful coffee and banana bread. Staff people were friendly. Three computers with internet available is a plus. The hotel has a charming and romantic look. We will go back and recommend it to our friends and family.
Great value and friendly staff!
We stayed at the Mayflower for five nights in May 2006 while exploring San Francisco and the Bay Area.
Great location (steep walk up the hill from the BART, but it is San Francisco after all!). Good value for money. Clean. Friendly and helpful staff (didn't charge us for parking even though we were quoted $10/night!). Room was like a small self-contained unit, with fridge, microwave and sink, and very large walk-in closet. Would definitely stay there again!
A Charming and Convenient Choice
My wife and I recently stayed at the Hotel Mayflower upon the recommendation of a friend. We found the hotel a small, but charming choice, much like a fine old European auberge. The staff, supervised by the grand-daughter of the founder, was most attentive to our needs. The Mayflower is located in the heart of the city, just blocks from Chinatown, and the financial district, right off Union Square. Nob Hill is 2 blocks up hill. Now undergoing a top down, room-by room renovation, the Mayflower should be even better in the coming months. There is a good Continental brakfast served every morning. A tight but doable garage space came with our room. Expect to pay about $80-$150 for a a room with a queen bed. We will definitely return.
I stayed two nights at the Mayflower when I went to San Francisco for a wedding. I was looking for a cheap room to stay with a friend of mine who was flying in and meeting me. The hotel was very accomodating when we added a third person to the room. We got a clean room with a double bed and a pull out daybed - it was a little too soft but it came with plenty of pillows for extra support. The room was big enough for the three of us to move around comfortably and there was a huge closet that had enough room to change in and a full-length mirror on the door. The bathroom was small but adequate and it wasn't a problem for the 3 of us. There was a "kitchen area" as you walked into the room with a fridge and a sink - but we never bothered to use it. The hotel had a nice lobby and internet access. The staff was pleasant and friendly. This hotel was in a great value and very close to Chinatown. If you are on a budget and are just looking for a bed to sleep in and a shower with hot water for under $100, I recommend it. I'd definately stay there again!
