Travel Blogs from San Francisco
We met Tony, Mick & Simon for flight to Sydney and San Francisco. We arrived safely at Hotel Andrews near Union Square and after a nap to recover we headed off to Fishermans wharf on the old streetcars, they even have an old Melbourne Tram. After walking around in a strong and cold wind had dinner at the Nautilus restaurant on Pier 39. Caught a …

... Sonoma Valley. The countryside is very similar to parts of NSW, the flat dry parts. The Hunter Valley is far better and the wineries far better presented. However having said that we had a good time with a crew of young fellow passengers from USA, England and Canada. Even found time for a beer in the town of Sonoma while the girls had their compulsory shopping fix.
... stopped working, and they were awesome and gave me a brand spanking new white one, which I'm currently charging and will have ready to go for our explorations tomorrow. We also got directed to 4 different places to try and find a charger for my camera - and had no luck at any of them. We did get directions to one more place that was closed, so we'll try it in the morning. While searching, we accidentally stumbled on a little bit of a scary part ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Andrews Hotel San Francisco
Great Little Palce To Stay
Stayed at the Andrews Feb '04, had a great time and enjoyed the whole experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the location was excellent and the rooms were clean and well presented. The rooms were a bit on the small side but nice just the same and if you are on the front side of the hotel be prepared to hear lots of noise from the street. The breakfast served on each floor every morning in a great touch. "Fino" the restuarant downstairs is hit and miss, some of the food we had there was very good, some beary edible. Overall a big thumbs up.
1. We stayed in a "Comfy Queen" room. Small bedroom but the bath was quite large, a "U"-shaped affair, with the bath tub (Note "tub," not shower enclosure) along one side, the sink at a corner, and the commode in its own area; quite spacious, really.
A great little hotel for a great price!
We stayed at the Andrews over New Year 2003/2004 and what a great place! We paid $99 per night plus tax for a queen bed room. The room was small but spotless as was the bathroom and we were given the extra pillows and ironing board as requested when booking. There was a radiator for the cold nights and a ceiling fan for the wamer afternoons which was great. There was some street noise but not enough to really disturb sleep. Breakfast was excellent with fresh squeezed orange juice and the best coffee and croissants ever! Staff are helpful and very pleasant and gladly held onto our luggage after check-out on the last day as well as booking our airport shuttle for us. We'll be going back to the Andrews again, only two blocks from Union Sq so really central to everything we love in SF.
Will come back here!
This is my second visit to the Andrews Hotel in twelve years and it is just as I remembered: charming, convenient, cozy, clean.
The concierge was fabulously helpful to me in retrieving my luggage from the bowels of Delta Airlines. Since I was weary from a day of travel, I was gfrateful to him for stepping up to the task of making several phone calls and arranging delivery.
Great little hotel 2 blocks from Union Square and really close to the Cable car on Powell Street. Rooms are small but very clean and well serviced. (Everthing is small in SFO). We felt very safe in this hotel.
It was convenient to everything and very reasonably priced in a somewhat expensive city. Beds are really comfortable.
The Afternoon Manager 'Oscar' was truly very helpful and knowledgable.
He made our stay entertaining, easy and fun - always there with a smile for us a the end of a very busy day, ready to hear of our adventures.
Definately stay there again if I get to SFO again.
Small room at small price in Union Square area
I stayed at the Andrews Hotel in June 2002 for 10 days while attending a conference at the Moscone Center. The hotel is excellently located just a short walk from Union Square. At $99 plus tax, it is good value for money. The room that I had was small with little room for big luggage. The bathroom was also small. Buffet breakfast was served daily in the corridor - you could help yourself to juice, coffee, tea and bagels. The Italian restaurant adjacent to the hotel is cosy and reasonably priced.
Nice, clean hotel in great location. Excellent staff.Rooms are small as are the bathrooms, but for the location/price definitely would stay here again.
Spent three days at this hotel and overall enjoyed the accomodations and especially the location. No question that the rooms were small and bathrooms even smaller, but I was forewarned. I'm 6' tall and just missed banging my knee on the shut-off valve under the sink when sitting on the loo. Got a bay window room with five (count 'em) openable windows on two walls, extra seating area and lots of street noise (with windows closed), which might bother some people- in that case, get a room in the rear. Staff was accomodating and courteous when I needed help, and breakfast served in the common hall was bountiful- all room entries are close to the serving buffet, so you can shlep out in your robe. Ice machine is in the basement- a somewhat scary place.
What a great hotel! We were crazy enough to book the Sheehan Hotel by internet, got there and after smelling mothballs and pee we went hunting for a new hotel. The Andrews Hotel has great friendly staff.
This is a nice little hotel near Union Square. The rooms are quite small, and the bathrooms even smaller. Everything is squeaky clean. The breakfast outside our door each morning was a plus. The staff at the hotel and at the restaurant Fino next door were super. All in all--a good buy.
