      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.

      Small but clean room in a central location”

      In the heart of safe Chinatown, clean room, quiet at night

      This was my third time staying at this hotel and the quality has improved a great deal: they have replaced the ugly and uncomfortable nylon blankets with white cotton ones. The room is now also cleaner and the bathroom got new appliances. The rooms are very small if you book a single room, but the bathroom is comfortable enough. All in all, it is money well-spent, especially when it is right in safe Chinatown that turns quiet late at night for you to have a decent sleep. The only problem was I could never get on Wifi in my room. There is also a tv with CNN in the room which is important for you to catch up with the latest while not at home. I would stay there again, unless they raise the price.

      Nice Staff

      you get what you pay for. it's not a luxurious hotel but i think it's value for the money. if you are on a budget, this hotel is for you. the location is great in that it is just inside the gate of china town so it's quite easy to travel arount san francisco but if you travel from the airport by bart, it's quite difficult because you have to drag your luggage up to a very steep hill. the staff was nice. the room, the bed and the showere were ok. the heating system was good too (after i checked out, i went to utah and arizona and came back to san francisco again 2 weeks later but i stayed at another hotel which was bloody freezing inside the hotel room).

      Clean, central, safe

      The price is right because, although the room was very small, it was clean and I am glad they had finally threw away the old, smelly and goosebumps inducing nylon blankets. My room got clean white cotton sheets and blankets and the bathroom got new appliances. Chinatown is very safe and although busy in the daytime, turns quiet at night. The hotel is not luxurious, but the price is right.

      The hotel doesn't offer many amenities. It's poor like the majority of hotels in San Francisco The room is small. If you are tall(large) person, you may have problems with the bed and shower. No coffee machine in the room neither water bottles. The only advantage is its location. It's pretty close to Union Square, Chinatown and the subway station is not far.

      Great location, basic but clean rooms, lots of natural light

      Room was fine - pretty basic but clean. The hotel is old and a bit worn around the edges but perfectly fine as an affordable, central base to explore San Fran. Internet was good and free. Main issue was that the hotel is quite noisy - you can hear everything anyone says in the hallway and the floor above creaked a lot, plus there was some noise from the street. I didn't have trouble sleeping but you might if you're a light sleeper.

      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.

Cable car pick up point is at 2 blocks away, easy to hop on. hotel room wise, as ive read the reviews b4 so im kinda prepared that small room space, cracking bed sound and also poor room sound prevention. Bathroom shower head is power, that's what I like the most after alongday spent out, nice shower is needed indeed! Price wise it is kinda high on average however that's one of the best choice (queen bed w bathroom) available in downtown centre..

All building floor was built by wood, that if you step on it, you can hear the noise zzzzz immediately. All day and night like this. I must very slowly in CAT walk motion moving around my room. The first day I did check in very late around 11:30 pm, when I was moving around my room, the room UNDER my room I.e. 7/fl., used a stick or ... To snap on his ceiling to tell me to stop all motions. All floor and wall are made of WOOD, it is a very old building. The last night was the worst one because someone was talking in ... Language very noise till 2-3:00 in the morning. The only good thing is the location, but this hotel is not cheap. I paid USD ~ 500.00 for 5 night. For a small room with one single bed, NO refreightor, very old room and bath room yeh..... I will not recommend to stay in this hotel at all.
