Parc 55 San Francisco, A Hilton Hotel

San Francisco, USA

The hotel

One for shopaholics and sightseers alike, Parc 55 San Francisco, a Hilton Hotel, is easy shopping bag hauling distance from Union Square – the only question is, do you hit the big-name brands of the nine storey Westfield mall or the one-of-a-kind boutiques around the square first? Its address also puts your spacious guestroom a quick hop from Powell Street’s cable car turnaround, Yerba Buena Gardens, and Chinatown. Once you’ve filled your suitcase and your camera’s memory, you can head to 55 Fitness – it’s open 24 hours, so you can work out whenever it suits you. And, inspired by downtown’s incredible dining, you can enjoy the café bites of Barbary Coast, locally inspired dishes of Cable 55 (with its equally local microbrews), and Thai treats of Kin Khao, voted one of the States’ best new restaurants by GQ.

Good hotel, with nice rooms and very friendly staff. Only drawback i thought was that the neighbourhood behind the hotel didnt seem very safe with a lot of homeless people. other than that the location is good as its close to Mascone and great for conference or shopping.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Room is tiny, with no furniture except the bed , small desk/coffee station and two very small drawers for clothing.

We are in 1501, which must be the smallest hotel room in downtown San Francisco. There's literally no room for a chair or dresser with more than 2 "bedside table" size drawers (it isn't possible to unpack our small carryons). This morning there was no hot water, after running it for close to 30 minutes (an elevator rider had the same… Read more
We are in 1501, which must be the smallest hotel room in downtown San Francisco. There's literally no room for a chair or dresser with more than 2 "bedside table" size drawers (it isn't possible to unpack our small carryons). This morning there was no hot water, after running it for close to 30 minutes (an elevator rider had the same experience). The front desk gentlemen told me that it takes at least 20-30 minutes to get hot water in the am. I'd rather change hotels than extend my morning that early and waste so much water! Staff are very polite and room is clean. Wouldn't recommend: there are better, less expensive hotels with more than just a bed and cold showers! Read less

Stayed here for 5 nights over New Year’s Eve. Staff did a great job for check in, when our room was not ready and gave us free dinner. Also had a problem with our room and was given free breakfast everyday and moved to top floor. All in all a good cost effective place to stay. Not the most facilities but good for a holiday if your not in the room… Read more

My issue with this hotel is street noise. I was on the 25th floor and felt like I was camping on the street. It wouldn't have been any louder. The windows must be cellophane. No sleep for me. The hotel is expensive. So I expected more. The room itself was nice. The hotel was well maintained. But I'm a Diamond member, so I know better what to… Read more

I should've stayed at the big Hilton (where I usually stay) but wanted to give this one a try. Lesson learned. Read less

Paid extra for an upgrade. Was wasted money. Also Food on site was quite expensive. Go to Sears restaurant nearby for decently priced meals. the Libby was small, not many places to sit and charge devices. Meh.
