Parc 55 San Francisco, A Hilton Hotel

Union Square, San Francisco

The hotel

One for shopaholics and sightseers alike, Parc 55 San Francisco 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? Its address also puts you 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 enjoy the locally inspired dishes of Cable 55 (with its equally local microbrews), and Thai treats of Kin Khao.

The hotel is located very close to the BART station and the convention center and it makes it a great location for both of those. The breakfast is a good deal with your Hilton Benefits. Otherwise, go elsewhere.

Title says it all. The location is hard to beat. There are plenty of public transit options and restaurants right nearby and the Orpheum theater is a mere 10 minute walk down the street. Teh beds gave me some back pain after my first night which was disappointing for the average price of the rooms.

Stayed here for a total of 5 nights during our recent visit to San Francisco. Great location, nearby is the Powell Street Bart station and the cable car. Food choices are plentiful around the hotel. Union square was walking distance from the hotel. Checking in was fast, front desk personnel were very friendly. The room was clean and big enough for our family of four. Size of the bed was a bit of a squeeze for two people but it was adequate for a good night's sleep coupled with the heater/air conditioner. Coffee machine and mini ref is also available. Wifi was a available if you signed up or are a member of Hilton rewards. Bathroom size is ok, it was clean and there was adequate water pressure. Amenities such as hair dryer, soap, shampoo and body wash are available but no toothbrush and toothpaste. Overall, it was a good stay. Would consider staying here again when in San Francisco.

This hotel needs an update - the lobby looks fine, but the rooms, bathrooms and common areas need a refresh. Beware the beds are double beds only - and seem very small! The bell staff is pleasant and helpful. Check out the convenient Starbucks at the BART station.

I have attended this meeting for the past 15 years and sadly experienced my worst hotel experience as an experienced traveller. I am a Hilton executive card holder - thought it worth mentioning. The service , food , attitude or staff and management was nothing short of shocking. The Hilton used every possible opportunity to extort its guests during what is clearly a very lucrative few days. Despite pre paying for my room and leaving a credit card imprint , the hotel froze access to my room after signing a meal to the room. They insisted I pay for the meal before allowing access. In summary - shame on you , your hotel and management Read less
