The Queen Anne Hotel
Travel Blogs from San Francisco
A short hop from Fort McMurray via Calgary to San Francisco. Luckily we changed our flights to allow a little more time between connecting flights, curiously we cleared US Customs in Calgary? I thought Calgary was in Canada? Perhaps the Australian Government should consider this method for the boats. Clear the people in Indonesia or further afield …
We just had to show Brendon some of the sights and gastronomic delights we'd discovered in the Sonoma Valley, so took a quick detour on the way to San Fran...
Roll on a couple of days of culinary indulgence in Healdsburg, visiting our favourite restaurants and vineyards again and laughing at a Calistoga gas station attendant struggling …
It really feels kinda weird waking up this morning in San Francisco, after 3 months in Nicaragua!
I spent the better part of the morning on Tuesday saying good bye to all my friends,and I found it
to be one of the hardest things I have had to do for a while. "I will miss you all" See you next year :-)
... Chinatown which claims to be the world's oldest china town established during the gold rush era.
The Italian quarter was very vibrant with many bars and restaurants with live music.
The famous San Fran fog was getting thicker and the wind making it about a chilly 9 degrees when we called a halt to sight seeing about 9pm.
... wandering the streets looking for spare change but not bothersome, and just looking at the differences in shops and goods for sale. Instead of the long walk back we hopped on again,arriving just in time for the Golden Gate leg of the service. Our driver, Spencer, was a bit of a card who put on a good show. He was full of good information, amusing stories and wisecrack remarks which some of the passengers, we don't think,got or took well. We enjoyed him. A drive over ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Queen Anne Hotel San Francisco
My husband had to be in San Jose on business in July and we decided to take that opportunity for an early anniversary trip to San Francisco. I love boutique hotels and anything to do with ghosts and the supernatural, so finding this hotel was like a dream come true for me - and it didn't disappoint!
I regularly attend conferences in SF and have stayed in quite a few hotels there over the years. Although those conferences are now routinely held at the Moscone Center (South of Market), I have stayed at, and always consider staying at, the Queen Anne and riding the bus to get downtown -- I prefer to avoid dealing with the appalling drivers that dominate SF's taxi ranks. The Queen Anne would certainly be my first choice for a tourist visit.
Love Queen Anne
Absolutely loved the Queen Anne at SF. The lady on reception (i wish i had her name) was absolutely brilliant and so professional. The room we had was an absolute joy (although i know some of the rooms are smaller) we were extremely lucky. Everthing is so quaint. The lift is like something out of the Munsters and even the decor is shall we say odd but the total ambience of the place is come and enjoy. The continental breakfast is very good and the Concierge was totally helpful. All of the hotel seems to be in a kind of time warp which is so lovely. All of the staff were smiling and glad to see us We had an absolutely fabulous time. Cant wait to go back.
Loved the Queen Anne Hotel
We stayed at the Queen Anne for a week and were very pleased with the room. the continental breakfasts, the hotel staff and the location. It has a real charm of its own and we will recommend it to our friends.
Myself and a friend stayed at the Queen Anne for a whole week.The staff were fantastic our room was fit for a king and his queen,in a great location and very easy to get down town using public transport which was very regular.We had a fantastic time.Also there is a courtsy car to take you just where you want to be in the morning. We LOVED it !!
The other side of gracious
This old hotel has beautiful woodwork and some grand old furnishings that once must have smacked of royalty. These days they seem to be collecting dust or waiting to be repainted or refurbished. The rooms facing away from the street may be quieter but they also tend to be dark and unappealing. The location is somewhat convenient to downtown but the neighborhood has little to offer in the way of restaurants or interesting walking trips. at around a hundred bucks with a nice expanded continental breakfast, you'll be getting your money's worth in a town that is not known for cheap lodging.
Dark and mysterious hotel in a great neighborhood. We parked for free on the street within a block away. We felt the house was haunted and strange the minute we walked in. Then later that evening we found a privately held "ghost tour" going on in the hotel and listened in. The tour was NOT for guests. We learned that the hotel is indeed haunted and there are numerous occasions of feeling, hearing, and seeing ghost.
The room thats haunted in #410. It made it kind of exciting to stay there. I would definately reccomend the stay.
I can't understand the other review on this site. We found the Queen Anne to be in a fantastic location (in a quiet and safe neighbourhood, perfect for two women travelling together, but close enough to the action), quirky and attractive (the lift seemed just like the one in the haunted house at Disney), with lovely furniture and great rooms.
Thank you Queen Anne!
My stay at the Queen Anne was fabulous! The staff was so friendly and helpful, I felt like royaly. The hotel itself is beautiful and the rooms are so nice! I love the ambiance of the Queen Anne. The room rates are very reasonable. I would most definitely stay at the Queen Anne again and again and recommend it to my friends and family. Thank you to the Queen Anne staff for making my visit there a very pleasurable one!
I live about 100 miles from San Francisco and I often stay in the midtown area. Once, and only once I stayed at the Queen Anne. The rooms are small, cramped and dingy. I could almost live with them, except the staff is AWFUL! They were rude from the very beginning. They refused to honor the low rate I had been promised on the phone (squeezing an extra $40 out of me when other hotels were full) saying that there was a mistake and that rate was not valid. Even that I could live with, but THEY WERE FLAT OUT RUDE. Even when I asked for a wake-up call they were not nice. In my opinion the Cathedral Hill or even the Holiday Inn on Van Ness is a better deal than this sorry excuse for a hotel.
