De 'Golden Gate City' is een fascinerende stad met een multicultureel karakter. San Francisco wordt door velen gezien als de mooiste stad van Amerika. Bij de haven wordt het geluid van de meeuwen overstemd door misthoorns en cable cars. Bovendien een spraakverwarring in het Italiaans, Spaans en Chinees. Uit de keukens aan de Pier komen de heerlijkste geuren naar buiten en een stadsrondrit laat u kennismaken met de vele bezienswaardigheden.
Bezoek de unieke Fisherman's Wharf, zie de Golden Gate Bridge en Alcatraz, de gevangenis met het mooiste uitzicht ter wereld. Maak ook een excursie buiten de stad naar Muir Woods, Napa Valley of Monterey.
Noise, noise, and more noise. I'm laying on my unusually firm need at 4am once again awoken by the sound of a garbage truck. At 2AM it was the sound of a siren. At midnight it was my neighbour's hacking cough. Single pane windows and paper thin walls. Unacceptable at any hotel especially one at this price point.
"A charming hotel with its own Beefeater..."
Loved the architecture of this hotel grand entrance foyer marble colonnades mirrors chandeliers .. Brilliant staff : checking in & out was effortless and the concierge was extremely helpful throughout our stay. The location was brilliant too off Union Square with Cable cars on the door step taking you down to Fishermanwharf Pier 39 or Chinatown. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay there and would definitely come back even though our room could have done with some refurbishment. I almost forgot to mention the complimentary coffee/tea in the morning in the foyer and the free happy hour between 5 & 6!!.. Super!!..So I would give Sir Francis Drake Hotel my thumbs up!!...
"Overnite Business Stay with Family"
After reading so many poorer reviews regarding the hotel, it appears that these negative items were in fact less than truthful. We arrived on Monday Oct 16th. The room selected was a Double-Queen Bed, with a single bathroom showrr/tub combi, for my Aunt and I. She was there to renew her passport at the Philippine Consulate-Genneral which is adjacent to the hotel around the corner on Sutter Street. The beds were tremendously high. We were treated ecceptionally by this really deep posturepedic mattress covered by a comforter layered by several thick plump feather pillows, and a beautifully encased feather body pillow lying across the top like a sofa bolster. Sleeping on the crisp white sheets was just as luxurious and extremely relaxing later in the evening hours. The room itself contained a large TV monitor with a remote. A huge red dresser filled partially with some bar menu items, snacks, and other vials of booze. The bathroom.othets complained 'too small turned out to be a standard size ensuite. Beautiful black marble tiled floors. Commode. The original tub/shower combo and vintage mirrored vanity. Which may be the original vanity also from 1928-29. The decor is quite contemporary. And the furnishing updated as well as the lighting on both beds, table vanity and desk top coveted with all sorts of bar items, cups, mugs, and the hotel phone. Now for two people [we], my Aunt and I felt exceptionally happy with the accommodations on the 19th floor overlooking Powell Street. There were several restaurants in the general vicinity of the hotel entrance, aside the cable car stop in front of Starbucks adjacent to the building via the lower level elevators (LL). However, dull and uninspiring the class property seems to suggest with other reviewers is in fact disproportionate to the high number of business travellers who frequently stay at the Sir Francis Drake. The level of comfort is highly well regarded. Had it not been for waking up earlier than normal to make the checkout time of 12:00 (noon) ... We certainly could have slept without any reason to get up at all. Very very relaxing atmosphere with no generally noticeable noisemakers around except from street level. We would highly recommend stating at this hotel for the ambiance, and outstanding historical charm that is popular with the local residents for event-planners (private parties, weddings, other functions, etc), which is incredibly its most hip appealing given the crowd size and age ranges. Undoubtedly, we will make another stay of it as soon as we are able to sometime later. The Sir Francis Drake has such a tremendous following with exceptional guest services, staffing, and truly befitting hospitality that again seems so unfairly judged by other reviewers. What adds into this negation is the amount of upkeep on such a large estate ad an investment. With regards to improving the premises-- the interior design could be toned up from a darker European gold or bronze to a brighter gilded goldtone like in Paris. Resonate with the reds and other complementary colours inside on it's wall mouldings, ceilings, woodwork and furnishing. And a vanity for makeup and other things inside the bathrooms on the upper mezzanine level. Beyond this, it's just incredibility. For the sake of argument about how Landmark'd hotelier keep a property fresh and youthful for it's patrons. Nonetheless absolutely enjoyable !! A Great Experience worth every penny.
"Run down room"
A hotel is about the room first and foremost. This room was old and in need of renovation. The bathroom was its weakest area. Very small with no room to put your toiletries. The window glass was painted rather than shutters or curtains. The window jams were filthy with mold and had not been cleaned in years. The water never got hot in the shower. The bedroom was clean but there were cable wires running along the base boards. The funny thing is the people at the front desk were very nice & accommodating. My daughter and brother stayed in different rooms and had the same complaints about the bathroom and hot water. My daughter moved rooms due to a funny smell and I noticed how smells form the street could blow right through the old closed windows. What I realized was it was not worth complaining or moving rooms because my family's rooms were in the same condition. There is a lot better value in SF for the price.
"A tired hotel with very dirty windows"
You know a hotel is past itâ€™s prime when you can perceive a sunset from the window but the windows are soooo dirty you canâ€™t see out of them! We were in a suite, but everything about the suite was old and dingy. The towel racks were so high I couldnâ€™t reach them. Basically, the location is good near Union Square and a short walk from the Prescott BART station, but the noise from the cable cars and the sad interior pretty much outway the convenience factor in a negative way.
