  1. We very much enjoyed our stay here. The staff were professional and courteous. Even as busy as they were the staff made sure to help out. We used their car service to get airport early in morning they were on time and professional. Our room was clean and had all the accommodations you needed. It’s right on the cusp of Chinatown, which makes sight seeing easy to access.

  2. The rooms were rather small. The only shining light at this hotel were the employees, they were all wonderful to my family. Juan at the Marketplace was great and very helpful. There is no pool. There was a room with a giant TV, but it did not work. There really wasn’t an area in the lobby to sit and spend time in. My biggest concern with this hotel is how Hilton seems to be treating its Hilton Honors members. The executive lounge at this hotel is still closed due to “Covid”, but most of the the employees weren’t required to wear masks. We were given $18.00 dining credit for 2 people / day, but the breakfast ran $29.00 / person. I’m not sure how Hilton considers $80 for breakfast a family meal. Hilton Honors used to stand for something and helped to allow my family to travel more often. After this stay, I am not so loyal to Hilton anymore. Note the picture that I often see, is really a bridge and access is locked from Sunday – Tuesday. Although it looks rather accessible, its locked.

  3. Alright, the hotel is old and it could use a makeover, but the building itself is a “beautiful” brutalism monument. The pictures you see are for room 2024. The elevators are crazy fast, after launching they seem to skip half the floors in seconds. But back to the rooms: They’re somewhat spacious. More than enough for 2+ suitcases. The TV is large and new, aka “smart”. Other than that, it’s pretty standard Hilton experience! Nice staff! The only thing I didn’t like was that the body wash/ shampoo/conditioner brands did not match?! I’ve never seen this before.

    I mostly wanted to stay here because it was in the first Dirty Harry movie with Clint Eastwood.

  4. Rooms and bathrooms are clean. Staff is friendly, great location to get to various parts of the city. Love the in and out parking. Makes it easy to come back to the hotel for lunch or what not. My only complaint is the windows. I had a great view of the bay, windows were dirty and a hazy. Overall I will always be staying her when work brings me back to San Francisco.

  5. This hotel is right in the heart of China town. Rooms are nice, but older coffee single serve. There is not a refrigerator and parking us $62 a night with tax. No complimentary breakfast or coffee. I bought two of the larger size (16oz?) In the lobby for $9.50. These were just house coffees pumped out of a carafe. So be prepared to pay for every little extra. If you are on a high floor, be prepared for many elevator stops and full rides. If you want to be in the heart of Chinatown, perfect spot.

    We stayed four nights and had a great holiday. Our reservation at another hotel did not exist and the staff here was friendly and gave us room in the middle of the night. We had our room at level 24 and the view was excellent. The AC were very noisy. They had nice gym, warm pool outside and the price includes car parking. Breakfast is not included and I can not recommend it but there are a lot of restaurant round the corner. The location of the hotel is great. I would love to return here again.

    Decent stay, good value for money. Some of the biggest attractions of SF are within walking distance. There are also bike rental options nearby.

    As IHG Platinum I was upgraded to the 23rd floor and a corner room which was highly appreciated. One thing I did not appreciate is that they ignored my request to get my room cleaned. I think they should have a better system in place to ensure that these requests are fulfilled.

    We stayed at the holiday inn golden gateway for 4 nights and it was wonderful! The location was perfect, a short ride to most tourist attractions. The staff was super helpful and responsive. When we called for extra towels or to take out the trash, they came immediately. The room was spacious enough, clean and had all the basic amenities. Would definitely recommend!

    9/16 – 9/19/2022. My wife and I stayed at this hotel during our trip to San Fran. I wanted a hotel with parking for conveniency as we were going to drive around town to different places. Location is on a busy main street. Homeless people in the area, we are not use to this and it could come off as a bit unsafe, but it was okay during the day. Being in San Fran, hotels are a bit more expensive, parking cost 45 plus tax per day, other misc. taxes, etc. We got the city view room which was nice. Great customer service. We lost our garage door card one of the day and got a replacement card for free when we it was supposed to be 45 dollars charge, so do not lose your garage card. We later found the card in our room on the floor. The only complaint would be there is no complimentary breakfast. For the price we pay for the room and park, there should be some kind of complimentary breakfast. There is a coffee shop in the main floor. Bed was comfortable, pillows were long size which is nice and comfy, room is okay. Overall, good place to stay, it is a bit expensive, and no breakfast. Going to try other hotels whenever we back in San Fran.

    We travel a lot and truth be told are never really a fan of SF but love when we find a great hotel. This Holiday Inn was amazing. Alex at the front was so nice, super friendly and genuinely helpful. Not often we see people who love their jobs (or are good at faking it lol). It’s right next to a lot of fun bars and restaurants. The hotel itself was super nice. We ended up in room 1100 and the view was phenomenal.

    We loved our first stay at the Ritz as a couple, which was for a Conference.
    The rooms were fantastic…the beds were SO comfortable, the fabrics dreamy, the bathrooms a marble paradise, and yes robes and slippers were provided for your use during your stay.
    It was a very comfortable and welcoming hotel, and located in a great part of the city that because it is at the top of Nob Hill, the area around it is very safe and not many homeless lining the streets like in other areas of San Francisco.
    Our favorite part were the beautiful hallways, and that the trolly can be caught very close by. The food and venues for the event here were gorgeous! Enjoyed every luxurious moment!
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Amy Simmons (2 months ago)
    Well, this is a tale of two hotels really. On the one hand the staff is fabulous, prompt, courteous, and ever helpful. On the other hand the rooms are really cheaply done , small, and look like an airport Marriott in a small city. The place not overly clean either as you can see from the attached photo of a door leading to, I think, a service area. I stayed here quite a lot before Marriott took it over and it was completely different. It is a long,long way from being a flagship or being worth what we paid which was somewhere around 700 a night.

    Stayed here for two nights. Had high expectations and had those expectations met and often exceeded. Great personalized service. The food offerings were very good and the quality of the food and the setting offered good value, especially in the lounge. The hotel is relatively small, making it a more intimate setting. The room was immaculately clean and comfortable. There were some great custom touches that were greatly appreciated and our 7th floor room had a pleasant city and courtyard view.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Ken and Alicia Lund (3 months ago)
    We had a great stay! My best friend was celebrating her birthday and I’m glad I chose this hotel. The manager, Jason Ellis is very kind and generous. He’s such a star! He goes above and beyond to make every guest happy. As a platinum member with Marriott, this is by far the best stay I’ve ever had.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Dannica Joyse Alcazar (2 weeks ago)
    It’s the Ritz Carlton. They have a reputation to uphold and they did not disappoint. The place reeks of old money – understated generational wealth. Alot of hotels in this category scream new money with their trendy decor and staff but this place doesn’t need to try; it just is. The details scream luxury – turn down service, quality of in-room amenities, staff that knows your name without you having to tell them, plating of food, acknowledgement, but not over friendliness of staff…. this place has it all. The lounge in the hotel lobby is a fabulous place to unwind, grab a bite, or watch the game. Parallel 37 is great for breakfast but shines for private dining. This place is like an oasis in an otherwise somewhat gritty downtown. Five stars consistently!

    The people (and location) is what makes this hotel great. Located only a block from the wharf, nestled amongst stores and restaurants, this hotel has a very desirable location. The hotel lobby staff however, especially the amazing hotel manager Harvey made us feel extremely valued by taking extra time out of his busy schedule to put our minds at ease (about the city not the hotel). In today’s day and age, this kind of service is sadly a rarity. Thank you for providing top top top customer service. Kudos to the hotel for hiring the best!

    I booked this hotel because of the reviews on The Hopper app. We also wanted somewhere close to some landmarks that we could walk to and this is only a few blocks from Fisherman’s wharf and the other way you can get to Little Italy.
    The price was also really good for the weekend compared to other places. Check in was easy and the lobby was busy with people just enjoying time lounging and at the bar/restaurant. The room felt clean and simple. We had all the amenities that we needed along with a little balcony.
    The cool thing about the hotel as well as the all-you-can-eat breakfast that was included in the stay. It had so much food options and I wish we could’ve had it for all 3 days we were there and yet we spent most of the time traveling.
    The place felt very safe and I would happily recommend it to anybody.

    Stayed at the Riu Fisherman’s Ward for the first time on a mini vacation with my husband. We chose the Riu for its location which is perfect. We reserved a Jr. Suite for $389 a night which was a bit overpriced for the room, in my opinion. The room was clean. The rooms and hallways (especially the painted doors and jambs) need some cosmetic and paint touch-ups…including the wood furniture with the dents, scrapes, and dings. The bathroom sink had low water pressure and the spigot leaked out the top when turned-on. The king bed was awfully hard and the pillows were flat when you lay on them. You can tell the hotel attempted to upgrade, the lobby looked great but in the halls and rooms they left the old used, scraped, and dented doorknobs in place which, with the scraped paint and dents on the outside of the room doors, detracts from the overall look.
    The free breakfast was amazing, so many cold and hot choices but the seating was limited and cramped. We were seated next to a table with two young and obviously sick children coughing and snorting within 3 feet of us. Not good with Covid and flu still going around.
    Safety in the hotel was great allowing you to only access other floors with your key card. The area around the hotel was pretty secure, we felt safe during our stay and walked for blocks after dark.
    Would I stay again? Probably only due to location, breakfast, but next time will bring my own pillow.

    Cute hotel in a perfect location for all the activities we did the day we were in San Francisco. Nice outdoor fire pit areas. Overnight in and out parking (for a fee) until 4pm the day you check out (this was a life saver!). Breakfast buffet included, give your room number and you’re seated at a table. Room was wonderful and updated. Comfiest bed we’ve had so far on this trip!
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Margeaux Cotton (5 months ago)
    we stayed only 2 nights in this hotel. we had a good experience. the room was clean, the beds very comfortable, housekeeping and staff very friendly. the breakfast was good.

    the only minus point/star is that parking costs $57 per day, which is way too expensive. at least the nice lady at the front desk gave us a discount since we checked in late at night.

    for those who are a light sleeper like me: the rooms are a bit noisy. you can hear the cars on the street, which was less bad than the guest above our room. this tramp started making rounds in the room at 5 in the morning. we were awake every time from 5 o’clock and couldn’t get back to sleep. i don’t understand how someone can tramp up and down in the small room for hours, non stop!

    Such a beautiful boutique hotel!!!! The service was incredible the entire stay. The staff made my husband and I feel very special as we celebrated 20 years of marriage. All spaces are very clean and gorgeously decorated. The shower is so relaxing. The bathrooms are super spacious. Coffee is available until about 10am each day. The attached restaurant (Jasper’s) has great food, but the aesthetic isn’t the same as the hotel. The location is awesome and there’s so much in walking distance. My only complaint (which has nothing to do with the hotel itself) is the noise from the city’s homeless population. It’s heartbreaking but can also be overwhelming if you’re trying to work or vacation. BUT, I would absolutely stay at Hotel Spero again and again!!!
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Heather (4 months ago)
    Nice boutique hotel in a decent location. Just be careful not to turn right to the Tenderloin direction because of the homeless situation, though it is not the hotel’s fault.

    Room was proper sized. Maintenance could be a little better as we had a blocked toilet which required the staff to help and clear. And the air conditioning doesn’t work. We resorted to opening the windows for cool air.

    And oh, the WiFi is a bit spotty and insecure.

    ✭✭✭✭ By Royston Leong (a month ago)
    I came here for a conference. I did not like Hotel. Also, I did not like the location, I didnt feel safe. San Francisco is not one of my favorite places. It is dirty and many homeless people, it’s really sad how the City seems to be rundown. The rooms in the Hotel were small, no room service and no pool. The maid service was excellent. They did have a restaurant in the Hotel that I would rate a 3. I would not discourage you from visiting because you may like it, you may have to see for yourself. One good things it’s very diverse with many different people which is nice to see.
    ✭✭ By Dee Reed (2 months ago)
    The front lobby is beautiful and front desk staff super helpful! Rooms are small but cute and ours had a great view.

    Very confused with the room service. We didn’t leave a tag on the door but when we came home, our room was cleaned. We told the front desk that had we had known they were going to clean our room, we would have secured our jewellery and passports.
    Front desk said that it wasn’t appropriate and they’d talk to someone about it.

    The next day, we leave and come back to the room which was cleaned up again. There was also a knock on the door the following day and it was the cleaning staff trying to come in. Clearly communication was lost.

    We also had an opportunity to upgrade our room prior to check in through Expedia’s site and when we did the upgrade, we got a message from Hotel Spero that we weren’t allowed to upgrade… So whatever happened there.

    Lastly, absolutely skip whatever voucher they give you for the restaurant. No matter what you order, it’ll come sopping in grease or butter.

    Nice Hotel close to the city center of San Francisco. The room is quite small but big enough for a short stay. For me a big minus was the toilet. It was located very close to the side wall and also this the wall in front of the toilet. Sitting strait on it was not possible for me. I’m quite tall with 1.98m.
    Next to the hotel is a bar where you can choose between three different breakfast’s. There is no buffet. The breakfast is served with tea, coffee or Juice.
