Fine for the reasonable price
Great location. We were here for 5 days and found that the hotel was quite noisey (other guests, not location) and the door to our room didn't fit the frame properly which meant that the room was also light 24/7. Room was comfortable, mattress was basic, could have been cleaner; bed linen was a little grubby and bed made daily but bathroom not cleaned by maid.

Great location, clean and modern, but that's about
Hotel rooms around Union Square are really pricey, so I was glad to find the Grant Plaza Hotel at a reasonable price and a very short and easy walk away from both Union Square and the heart of Chinatown. The room I got was very small, but it was at least clean. The toilet and bath was very small but clean and modern. It overlooked the main road, so things got pretty noisy in the morning. The hotel had no facilities (no food available anywhere in the hotel, and complimentary coffee for only a very brief 2 hour window in the morning). I will probably book a room again at this hotel if I were back in SF for a short business trip, because it is fairly spartan but very functional and very convenient. Wouldn't consider it for a holiday or if I were here with my family.

Location, restaurants, clean
It was a very nice stay. Very clean and helpful staff. Road noise was the only complaint but for the price it wasn't a big deal.

First time in San Fran
Location could not be beat, staff were very welcoming and accommodating and last but not least it was a very affordable stay.
It was great, the hotel could use a few more touches though. It would have been nice to have had a mini fridge in the room and an ironing board. Other then a few small things value for dollar was there especially considering the alternatives you could be paying during peak tourist season.

Casual short trip
good location, fair price, friendly staff
this hotel is perfect if you do not plan to rent a car as it is pretty close to the main downtown. And it charges affordable price. But the room is pretty small and with no air conditioning.

Not the Best... Not the Worst
Close Enough to Union Square
We arrived to the hotel a little bit early and were able to check in which was great. The hotel is under renovations so the reception area is quite cramped. They didn't do renovations on the weekend which was good. The room looked better then in the photos as we got a renovated room I presume. It was quite small though, but most hotel rooms are in San Fransisco. The bathroom was quite nice as it had been fully revamped. The bed was TINY though. I'm not tall by any means and my feet hung off the bed. They have daily housekeeping service which was fantastic, however they didn't speak English. We had a problem with the hot water in the shower for the first few days. It was Luke warm at best. We told the staff and they came and looked at it after 2 days. (We had the Do Not Disturb sign up and he still knocked and just walked into our room) The walls are very thin. You can hear everything going on outside your door. As it's an older building so the floors creak quite badly. The staff at the counter never looked up to greet us when we left the hotel or came back which isn't the worst thing ever but common courtesy goes a long way. We checked out at 12:30pm and our flight wasn't till 11:00pm. They were able to keep our suitcases there until we left which was a nice touch, seeing as though I didn't want to lug it around the city. It was however off to the side of the construction area behind a privacy screen. Overall the hotel is what it is.... A cheap option not to far from Union Square. (Mind you it's about a 3 block walk away) If you want fancy stay in Union Square and pay more.
