Worth staying at
Excellent location. Was undergoing renovations in the lobby area when we stayed there. Rooms are little dated but clean and comfortable. For San Francisco it was relatively well priced.
Louie, ca4 night romance trip
Stanford Court San Francisco, San Francisco
Simple, Comfortable, Great Location
The hotel is simple but in a great location. Room was comfy with good a/c and windows that opened. We were offered an upgrade for a view but interior rooms facing the courtyard are much quieter since the exterior faces cable car lines and busy streets. The 6th floor lounge is simple and a good end of Day place to unwind with wine or a cup of tea. They serve breakfast too. Walkable to Chinatown and Union Square. It's at the top of Nob Hill so there are STEEP inclines all around but a transit day pass takes away some of that burden. Renovations are underway on the main floor but it's not an issue at all and the staff were all super friendly

Great stay with our baby
Great stay. Frontdesk staff was very helpful. They even sent a microwave to the room. They gave us a bigger room because we had our baby. It was the perfect stay for families with babies.
