    Love this Hilton! I always stay here when in SF. Tower 3s renovated rooms are awesome. Reminiscent of a W standard room. Be sure and avoid walking into the Tenderloin after dark. Can be a bit sketch.

    Ask for a room in Tower 1 that is an even number on a high floor beginning with 70 ie. 1-3370, you will get an amazing view of downtown, the water, and AT&T Park!

    Even if you don't have a car, be sure to check out the parking garage entrance. A typically boring space has been made very cool, and it's worth the few extra minutes to see it.

    Just steps from storied SF neighborhoods, stay here and you’ll be at the center of it all. If you're looking to get some work done, rooms come with a work desk. FYI - free Wi-Fi is only in the lobby.

    If you're looking for a quiet hotel, this one isn't for you (lots of families w/ kids) but it has a great central location and is a good jumping off point for your adventures in the rest of the city.

    Free water, all you can drink... just turn on the tap in your bathroom. This is a hotel, not a resort. If you want good prices and friendly service, go outside and find them. You're in San Francisco!

    The service was amazing, when I mentioned that I didn't feel safe going out front to smoke they upgraded me to a suite on 32nd floor Tower 1 with a balcony for free so I didn't have too!

    If they try to sell you wifi, don't buy it. They'll then try to get you to sign up for some free membership where you get to use wifi free during your stay. Wifi is $40/day, which adds up!
