Basic hotel in great location
Clean, quiet hotel right in Chinatown . Small room but comfortable bathroom. Wish the radiator had worked. Would be nice to have a coffee maker or some bottled water in the room, especially when there is no fridge. Nice staff.

Nice accommodation for budget traveler
It's within walking distance to the city centre and BART stations, around 15 minutes. The room is clean with individual bathroom. With the price charged, it is a good option for buget traveler!

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 it!
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.

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.
