No title - expert review
Amazingly low room rates make this hotel a find for budget travelers wanting views of the striking architecture and fascinating street life of Chinatown. Small, modern rooms are sparkling clean, with newer, slightly more expensive digs on the top floor and quieter quarters in the back. Even if you'r...

You won't find any free little bottles of shampoo here. What you will find, however, are cheap rates and basic - and I mean basic - rooms right in the middle of the Union Square-Chinatown action. Many of the small and stark but well-kept abodes - with little more than a clean bed and desk - in the s...

No concierge, no restaurant and no room service. While this isn’t the place to stay for amenities, the slightly out-of-fashion hotel is a great find for frugal travelers. The chandeliers and pink leather sofa in the lobby don’t quite match the fake flowers and French provincial chairs. But...

The Grant Plaza Hotel is centrally located at the gateway to Chinatown, just 3 blocks from Union Square shopping district, 1 block of the famous San Francisco cable cars, Nob HIll 5 stars Ritz Carlton Hotel and Financial District. It is recommended by many travel guidebooks as a best buy. Built in t...

The Grant Plaza has been rated by many as a 'Best Buy' and is right in the heart of San Francisco. Our historical hotel is newly renovated with modern furnishings and the latest amenities. Antique stained glass skylight on the top floor offers a quiet sitting area. Our inviting lobby is cozy and nic...

Located between Union Square and Chinatown in San Franciscos downtown business district, the Grant Plaza Hotel (Calif.) is a moderately priced alternative to the luxury brands that populate this vibrant Bay Area neighborhood. The hotel features a convenient location on Grant Avenue and is surrounded...

Best bang for your buck! - user review
I've stayed in lots of SF hotels, but I always return the Grant Plaza, or the "GP" as me and my friends call it. The location is excellent (right at the Chinatown gate). The rooms are small, but clean, and the staff is helpful. By far, the most attractive thing about the GP is the price: $...

Great location and good service - user review
My friend's wedding is up at Nob Hill area which is only one blcok from this hotel. Compare with what they are paying for their room, this hotel is of very good value. Very conveninetly located at the Chinatown gate and close to walking to everything. I was staying at one fo the renovated rooms on t...

Good value hotel, Nice neighbourhood. - user review
We came back to stay at this hotel again and found they have replaced all the furniture, which is much cozy than before. The staffs still provide very friendly service and we were upgraded to the top floor rooms since they recognized us as returned guests. We have a good time in China town, and the ...

A Roach motel would have been the same - user review
2006, November... My gf and I stayed in this hotel for one night, making sure to leave as early as possible. Why It was horrid. The only thing missing that would have made this hotel the classic dump would have been the grime and roaches. Our room was tiny (we asked for a double bed). So tiny there ...

Very good value for money - user review
Grant Plaza's location is excellent 5 minute walk to Union Square. The staff is very helpful and the price is reasonable. TV reception is awful, but then who wants to watch TV when you can see a show, a museum, or just walk the streets of beautiful San Francisco and watch all the people. The rooms h...

Affordable San Francisco - user review
If you don't want to spend all of your money for a bed to sleep in the Grant Plaza is a good place to start. Older building, clean with decent sized rooms and a place to lay your head. Within walking distance of Market Street and connections to other locations. The area seemed safe and staff was cou...

Almost killed a weekend - user review
In the middle of noisy Chinatown. No parking on premises. The parking that is provided is an additional $20 completely defeating the purpose of booking ahead for a more reasonable price. The amount I paid (including parking) was exactly the same as if I had just book...

Rooms are smelly, sleepless night, rude front desk... - user review
Situations is awesome, since it is in walking distance of everything. Convenience is not good enough of a reason for me to go back again. I picked this hotel because it saids it was renovated recently, but it didn't look renovated at all. The elevator didn't work, everything seems a bit dirty and mo...

Cheap; but not good service - user review
The (very tiny) room wasn't ready when we arrived to check in at 2:35pm. It wasn't cleaned until rather late in the day every day we stayed there (after 3pm), but on checkout day, they were calling and knocking on our door 15 minutes ...

Not so hot, great location - user review
The hotel is in a convenient location and it is cheap, however the rooms are very tiny, the shower was moldy, and the bedding was not paricularly comfortable. The television had maybe fifteen channels and you cannot order and play movies. Parking is not included. We febreezed the room multiple times...

Grant Plaza I’ll be back - user review
The price and location made this place ideal. The room was very small but we were only in the room to sleep and shower so it was well worth it. The staff we dealt with were very nice. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a home base during an active vacation. Traveler's tip ...

Acceptable - user review
The room I stayed is kind of small. I could only see the wall of the building next to the hotel and also the ladder above my room from the window. One staff from the front desk hotline was a little bit rude. But it is easy to go to Chinatown for re...

You get what you pay for - user review
This hotel is old, dingy and small. I can not emphasize that enough. It was sufficient for us because we only needed a place to sleep, shower and store our luggage. There is only one elevator however it moved pretty quickly. The hotel is conveniently located in Chinatown and we were able to walk, us...

Nice hotel on a shoestring - user review
This is a no frills hotel. It is efficiently run, very clean. Small rooms so bring a close friend or spouse. Exceptional value in an exciting part of San Francisco r...

Not bad for that area - user review
We had a hard time getting something reasonable near the square, and earlier reviews were mixed. We had no problems (stored luggage in the room before it was ready, etc.) We did not have room service for the two nights by our request, but the room was clean, comfortable, and quiet until we opened th...

You get what you paid for - user review
We stayed here for two nights. The first night was pretty disturbing since this is at the heart of downtown and there's plenty of noise around through the night making it difficult to sleep. Secondly internet has to be paid for here although the website proudly mentions Wireless High Speed Internet ...

Great location and good value - user review
I'm not sure what all the people who gave the hotel a bad rating were expecting, but the Grant Plaza was great. Keep in mind that we only paid $69 per night for our New Years Eve getaway there....what do you expect for $69 is San Francisco If you're from some po dunk town and expect to being staying...

Steve Misinterpreted Comments - user review
In response to Steve from Los Angeles and as a continuation of my 9/16/03 comments, there was only one reviewer who gave the hotel a bad rating. Although I complained about a few things, my overall rating was between good and very good. And that's also the case with the other reviewers, which is why...

Unbelievable value in Chinatown - user review
We stayed at Grant Plaza for 10 days, and it wwas the best spent money on a hotel I can imagine. Yes, the rooms are small and plain but thery're clean and have everything you need, including a TV for those nights your feet are too tired to walk around SF. The location is perfect and with those rates...

The website showed great pictures of the hotel so I booked it. When I checked in I was very disappointed to find that the room was in very poor condition. There were leaking stains on the ceiling, the carpet was very dirty and old, the bedsheets looked dirty, the room and bathroom were very small, t...

Grant Plaza Hotel: Cheap hotel in the center of SF - user review
Grant Plaza Hotel is an old building but the lobby is cute and well lit. Everyone I spoke to was very helpful and courteous. It's centrally located in a safe area in the heart of Chinatown, within walking distance of Union Square, North Beach, the cable car lines, and many restaurants. I would have ...

Grant Plaza Hotel: At the Gateway of ChinaTown - user review
Grant Plaza Hotel, located in Chinatown, is a great place to stay on your San Francisco trip. The location is perfect (even if you aren't too fond of Chinatown, it is close to many attractions) and the price cannot be beat (we stayed for $60 a night). The staff is more than accommodating they gave g...
