Hitchcock fans may recognize the exterior of this reasonably priced hotel five blocks west of Union Square: the York stood in as the hotel where Kim Novak, playing Judy Barton, stayed in Vertigo. Inside, the ornate, high-ceilinged lobby leads to moderately sized rooms with huge closets, dark-green c...

Even as a local, I drop by the York frequently because it's home to the Empire Plush Room, the city's best jazz and cabaret club, now featuring a new vaudeville show. But for the visitor, the hotel, built in 1922 and boasting a role in Hitchcock's Vertigo, is a boon because it's a hell of a deal. Aw...

Expectations are the Standard - user review
From making my reservation to my departure, I experienced a genuine sense of interest. When I checked in I was given information and directions to "the real san francisco". The staff gave me ideas of places to go that was where the locals go and I was able to find one of a kind items that ...

Far from perfect - user review
I don't know who has been raving about this property but when we stayed there, the eleveator was out of order, we got a very small room, they don't have a restaurant and it's quite far to walk to Union Square. I consider the rates too high for this kind of property. The staff is polite and helpful. ...

Poor Experience - user review
I stayed at this hotel with the reccomendation of a couple. I was expecting an "average" visit, but I never expected the poor conditions that I was exposed to. First of all, somthing as simple as parking seemed to baffle the staff at this hotel. I was valet parked, and I dont think that th...

A Wonderful Stay - user review
My wife and I stayed at the York for a long weekend getaway. We loved everything about the hotel from the moment we stepped through the door until we checked out. The management and staff were extremely courtious and professional and really catered to our needs. The room itself was beautiful. Very s...

Small but Charming - user review
Our two night stay at the York Hotel was very pleasant. The rooms are a little small, but nice and clean. The staff was also very friendly. The location (Nob Hill) made Market Street and San Francisco Shopping Centre very accessible by car. The only drawback would be the parking. You have to park at...

Those expecting a 4 star hotel should look elsewhere but it's a great deal. Only a few things I would change the towels were small and thin, and the continental breakfast needed something like yogurt or cereal. Other than that the staff was friendly and hel...

Not bad for the price - user review
Hotel was fair. Room was reasonable size, but walls were thin, so one could hear other people in adjacent rooms and in the hall. Bathroom could have been cleaned better. Hotel was withing walking distance (5 or 6 blocks) from Powell St. (although, the hotel is on a hill, so walking back to the hotel...

Worth the price - user review
Hotel was very afforable and well worth the price. It was very clean, and every member of the staff from the receptionist to the cleaning staff went out of their way to make us confortable and answer to our needs. Sure, it's not the fanciest hotel or something to show off to friends, but it was a pl...

We’ll be back - user review
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the York very much. Hotel staff was very friendly. Our room, while small, was quite comfortable. After reading previous reviews prior to our trip, I was concerned about rooms not being very quiet. However, my concern was unfounded, as our room was very quiet. We wil...

The hotel is in the city center, everything is quite close, easily accessible by public transport. The room is large and clean, the staff is friendly. There is not a wide choice of food and drinks at the breakfast but it's not a problem for a few days and the quantity and quality is very good. Trave...

the hotel is relatively convenient with a bus stop right in front of it. it's close to a lot of the main attractions. it's a good place to stay if you're just using it to sleep. the beds and pillows aren't the most comfortable, but it works. it's a no smoking and pretty quite hotel. the staff there ...

Nice Little Hotel in Nob Hill - user review
The staff at this hotel was very friendly. I was able to check my bags in early the day of my arrival. Complimentary breakfast is included at this hotel. The breakfast is sparse, but was a steal at the room rate I paid. Breakfast included toast with butter and jam, croissants, muffins and bananas. D...

Great time at the York Hotel! - user review
This trip was a birthday gift and our first time at The York Hotel. And I must say it was quite a surprise. I had read reviews about it on expedia and other sites and I must agree with the front desk staff being very nice and professional. On a bad note there is no air conditioning in the rooms whic...

Quite pleased! - user review
We very much enjoyed our stay at the York Hotel. It's a very charming, boutique hotel that houses a terrific little nightclub (which hotel guests can see headlining acts at for half price!). This is an older hotel (1927), but well maintained. Our room was very spacious with comfortable beds. The hot...

Accomodating accomodations at the York - user review

The location was convenient & safe enough, the staff was very friendly & helpful, the room was dark but clean, the champagne for our anniversary was a nice ...

Close enough to Union Square - user review
It's close enough to Union Square but the 4 blocks you have to walk can be quite a hike if you're in a hurry but a nice stroll if you aren't pressed for time. Try to walk up from Powell Street, turn into Sutter and then go the 4 blocks to avoid seedy people drifted off from the Tenderloin area. The ...

York Hotel: Quiet Hotel - user review
I got off the Powell St. BART and walk a few blocks to find my hotel, The York Hotel. It wasn't the luxury, overpriced hotels in every big city. It was a great find in a great location. The rooms were on the small side, but if you've traveled many cities have small rooms. Plus I was a single travele...

York Hotel: Great location, price and service - user review
I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting San Francisco and not only because it was featured in Alfred Hitchcock's classic suspense film Vertigo and not because it has a Cabaret bar downstairs that was a famous speakeasy during Prohibition. The beds were comfortable and the room was sim...
