Historical Traveler Reviews Le Meridien San Francisco
One of the best
Got a great rate on priceline ($70 a night) for 5 nights. Little did I know what a great deal this was. This Park Hyatt is one of the finest hotels I have ever stayed in. Large rooms, comfortable beds, tremdous bathrooms, balcony with view of city and Bay Bridge. Staff was top notch and freindly from the front desk to the maids. The understated class of this place would be hard to beat!
Classy, comfortable, and understated
Stayed here for a weekend (got a good Expedia rate of $111/night, but would be a good value even for $150) and was very impressed. The hotel is relatively small and feels more like an exclusive apartment house than a hotel. Quality Australian wood throughout the rooms and public areas, very accomodating staff, and beautiful bathrooms make for a pleasurable stay. They have a black top-of-the-line Cadillac that will take you anywhere within 3 miles of the hotel for no charge (you must reserve a time in advance--do so as soon as you can). The location in the financial district is quiet and clean, and doesn't have homeless people strewn about everywhere (unlike the Union Square/Market Street area where most other hotels are). My room didn't have much of a view, but was one of 2 rooms on each floor that are larger than the others, and had a nice seating area with a sofa, chair, and coffee table--if you want one of these, just ask upon check-in--there is no extra charge. Overall, this was a much nicer experience than so many other SF hotels.
Parc Hyatt S.F. is a CLASS ACT. Beautiful rooms with spectacular views.
Good location at Embarcadero Center and Financial District. Short cab ride to Moscone Center. Understated and elegant. The service, employees and everything about this hotel shines.
this is probably the nicest hotel that I have ever stayed in. It is truly a luxury property. loved the bar in the lobby. rooms beautifully decorated. the staff is so helpful and courteous.
Stayed at the Park Hyatt 3 nights in September 2003. Great hotel in the Financial District! Even though there was a Niners home game that weekend, the Financial District is very quiet on the weekends. Every room in the hotel has a balcony with a great view of the Bay. The Park Hyatt is within easy walking distance of Chinatown and the trolleys, so it's a nice blend of quiet on the weekends while still being very accessible to the rest of the city. The rooms were very tasteful and elegant and appeared to have been updated recently with granite baths, cherry wood furniture, great linens and fabrics. I use Hotwire to stay in 4-5 star hotels nationwide and I use this room and those at the Houstonian as the basis for judging all other rooms. Superb experience, I highly recommend the Park Hyatt and would stay there again without hesitation.
I have been to S.F. amny times, on business and pleasure, I have stayed here twice in the past year on both. Trust me, you are better off somewhere else, this hotel has seen its hayday, and the true business traveler would be much happier at the Four Seasons (wonderful), or the Hyatt, nearby. Stay away from this, there is a reason they are cheap. They have rude staff, bad food, and nickle and dime every thing. Go elsewhere!!
Very good value...
I was very impressed with the Park Hyatt. Regular Hyatts are sometimes hit and miss, but this one is equal to the elite hotels of the city as far as their standard rooms go (it should be noted that many time hotel reviews rarely are referring to standard rooms - and maybe the suites at the Ritz and Four Seasons are in a different league than Park Hyatt). The decor was up to date, the views very nice, and the staff very friendly. The breakfast at the restaurant was very good, albeit somewhat expensive. If you're looking for just a standard room, I'd definately recommend this one.
Don't let the Financial District location fool you: This is an excellent tourist hotel in addition to being a fine business hotel.
We found the location very central, walking to North Beach, Union Square and anywhere else. We found 3 outstanding restaurants easily within a mile. The rooms are spacious and oh so comfortable. If you can get an excellent weekend rate, jump all over it!!
Excellent and friendly service. Nicely decorated clean and comfortable good size room. Down pillows and comforter. The lobby is kinda small, but cozy. Valent parking is expensive at ~$40/day. I booked through priceline and paid $80/nite before tax and service charge.
Park Hyatt - Best place to stay in sf!
The Park Hyatt San Francisco is truly the only place for the discerning business traveler. During the month of April, my husband and I have had the pleasure of staying here for nearly 3 weeks, and every day has been a pleasure. For the past year we have been traveling and have stayed in numerous hotels, and never have we encountered such a level of service.
Our room was very roomy and welcoming, I believe that we stayed in a suite. Handsome wood paneling is the first thing that we noticed upon entering. There was a room divider that served as a swivel T.V. holder and storage, and it was very clever in how it really differentiated the sleeping area from the eating and lounge area. The attention to detail was incredible, from the beautiful glass lamps in the bedroom to the hand held spray nozzle in the granite bathtub. It came with every amenity you could think of, plush robes, free bottled water, and Ghiradelli chocolate at night!
The hotel itself had a classic elegance. The floral display in the entrance was beautiful, and it was a pleasure listening to the nightly pianist. In the morning, a complimentary coffee and tea station was arranged for the guests to enjoy. There were plenty of nooks to have conversations in the lobby, as well as a "library" that was a perfect informal meeting spot for interviews, meetings and the like.
Not to mention, the Park Hyatt had a complimentary 24-hour business center, in which we could have DSL access, and work on documents at the quiet and private computer stations. Faxes, copies, and FedEx were all handled here as well and the concierges worked till late at night to assist in such manners.
Although we didn't have a chance to use it, the hotel also had a complimentary 24-hour gym, which featured new equipment, and headphones so you could listen to the TV directly, instead of it blasting you with noise the moment you walked in!
However, the main reason the Park Hyatt stands out from any other hotel is their level of service. It would be hard for me to say which department or which individual was the best because everyone, from the bellman, to the engineers, to the concierge, really always had an incredible level of professionalism accompanied with a smile. I could go on and on and name every department, but I won't! There was no request that was too insignificant or too outrageous for them to handle. Everything from making a last minute reservation at Bix, to arranging for the complimentary house car service, to providing strollers was done incredibly quickly and with aplomb.
It was impossible to open the front door by myself, cross the lobby without being greeted by name, or without friendly faces coming forward to assist me with any bags! We almost felt like you were coming home because everyone was so welcoming and really remembered us.
In short, my opinion after staying at the Park Hyatt San Francisco is that this is a rare find, a hotel that offers all the perks of staying in a large, luxury hotel, along with the quaintness and charm of a small bed and breakfast!

Either we were sightseeing or we had broken some inconspicuous Californian law, we disembarked from Pier 33 to be confined on the lonely rock: Alcatraz! The prison just radiates fear and to make matters worse the audio tour includes random metallic bangs and pain induced screams; accompanying the decrepit, horror movie-esque hospital wing and solitary confinement chambers. But apart from all that, the Alcatraz experience is rather enjoyable, my favourite ...

The water was freezing cold but it was clear and beautiful. A wonderful way to end our time in Yosemite.

To end off the week we caught a shuttle bus over to Treasure Island to ...
... it from one who sparks daily. Deanne and I strolled back to the train station and it only cost use $1.25 in quarters to feed the omni-present panhandlers, vagabonds, vagrants and bums. They were everywhere in 2006; how much more so in 2014? It is a cultural glitch you see in every doorway of America, the gaps between the haves and have-nots, all the more wider since the GFC. The broken faces, the vanquished expressions, the leathery roughness of their palms as you drop a coin ...

Let's just say we didn't sleep that well and when Barney woke up the next morning covered in bed bug bites he wasn't exactly thrilled. But we had the whole day to explore the wharves of San Francisco and we'd spent the day before exploring the free part of the ...
