    The location is great, and the room even if small is clean and confortable.

    The check in time was exactly at 15:00 not early check in allowed.

    Really great staff. Very helpful and kind. Also, the location is probably the best in town. Just next to Powell Station and Union Square, lots of public transport options - not to mention shops, restaurants, bars etc.

    The room was a bit too small and crowded, making moving around a little hard. Also, I would prefer a different breakfast selection, probably with the addition of fruit and more cereal.

    If you're taking a holiday in San Fransisco, you must stay at this hotel. If you want to the G.G. Bridge, and all that downtown has to offer, you will regret staying anywhere else. Two blocks away there's a hotel I almost booked, but its swarming with homeless people. The Stratford is literally "on the strip" and you'll realize what I mean when you get there.

    Room was kind of tight, but comfortable for two people. You're paying for the location. location, location, location. No joke. And the room was affordable too, breakfast was light but good before a day trek through the city.

    I very much liked the location and comfort and helpful service. I would stay at the Stratford again and would recommend it for a "no frills" place to stay in San Francisco. I think it is great that you ask for feedback as this is the only way to improve business. Cheers Annetta

    Breakfast was pretty ordinary. I think continental means a selection of cereals (not just muesli) and there was no fruit available - when we got to breakfast anyway. Also the lifts definitely need an upgrade (as a priority) Cheers Annetta

    I like the fact that it was centrally located to most areas we spent time in.

    I was surprised at the size of the room and a starnge smell that was present in the room once we first arrived or renetered after being out of the room for several hours. I was also disappointed to find that there was no AC.

    They charged my credit card for 2000$ instead of 200$. After they did this mistake they were also not helpful in trying to solve this issue. I had to have a long argument before getting everything set.

    Location is the drawing card for this hotel. It is not a place to luxuriate, but a great place to sleep, breakfast and use as a sightseening starting point.l It is steps from Union Square, the best of San Francisco shopping and the cable car passes by the front door.

    Like most older hotels, the elevator was slow. There is no lotion provided and the tv channels are very minimal.

    very quiet which was important because I really needed my sleep during my stay. It was perfect for a solo traveller in the heart of the shopping and conference district. Very convenient especially for the price. Staff very pleasant.

    location!!!!! the best location in San Fran !! Right on Union Square

    We had any big problem , but if have to point a negative thing the room quite small.. but not a big deal and was clean, which is great !

  • 8.4
    Superb

    The location of the hotel, especially for ease of access to public transport. The quick, understanding response to a complaint about a temporary problem with the hot water.

    The room was on the small side, but that was to be expected of a central-city hotel of that nature and standard.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    Relatively inexpensive particularly given its very central location for shopping, eating & public transport. The availability of a shuttle bus to the airport at the end of our stay was also very convenient. Staff were generally helpful. I would always stay in a cheaper room at the rear of the hotel because it is further away from the noise.

    The weather was unusually warm during our stay and therefore the rooms would benefit from air conditioning.

    Clean, nice and friendly staff, excellent location if you would like to visit and to have overnight stay in the down-town.
