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.

From the lobby you'd think you landed in a nice hotel but when you get to the room you realize you are just in another Hilton. Mediocre linens, dated bathrooms. Meh. For the price I expect much more. Location is nice for SF. Steps from union square and the other direction, plenty of homeless who don't hesitate to bother you.

We stayed here for 2 nights, Sept 7 & 8 and had a different room each night. First the rooms. I have to agree with some of the other reviews as both rooms we stayed in were a little dated.

We stayed here for 2 nights, Sept 7 & 8 and had a different room each night. First the rooms. I have to agree with some of the other reviews as both rooms we stayed in were a little dated. The bathrooms may have gone through a recent refresh in the shower because the tiles were newer in both rooms but really that is about it. Then in our first room, I speculate and say something bad happened in there, because there appears to be blood spatter on the bathroom ceiling (see pictures). That definitely looks like blood, especially the bright red spots. You can also tell the same splatter was at one point on the walls but the walls were at least wiped down. That just kind of made me slightly uncomfortable. Anyway, we had to change rooms for the second day/night because only hot water was running to the shower and it had to be fixed. The bed was comfortable and we would have slept great except you can definitely hear all the street noise below. Given the hotel is in Union Square, that should be expected. Location was good. The Bart entrance was right across the street. Though my review probably sounds slightly negative, I am rating this hotel a 4 because of the customer service. Everybody was soooooo very very nice! Starting with check-in, we were actually able to check in 3 hours early and the lady was pleasant to talk to. Then the maintenance guy who came to fix our shower was also extremely nice. As soon as he realized it wasn't an easy fix, he asked if we would like to change rooms so we can get ready for the day. Of course we said yes. He went downstairs, got our new room keys on a higher floor, and brought us a$50 voucher to the hotel restaurant for the inconvenience. Finally when we checked out and didn't know which exit to use in order to walk directly to the Bart, the security guard walked us all the way to the street. I truly can't say enough good things about every employee we interacted. They made our stay very comfortable and pleasant. Read less

Great stay! Highly recommend for solo or couples and I will use this service every time I travel here. The overall quality of service is what I look for when staying out of town and the food was a plus.

Everything but the gym is run down and tired. Bathroom, carpets, drapes, things are broken, sheets are old and coarse. Front desk checkin person was condescending. Only nice thing about this place is the gym.

We have stayed at PARC 55 several times when we come to SF for conferences. It is centrally located to walk to the Moscone Center, Union Square, hop on the trolley or ride BART. The hotel itself is clean with excellent customer service.
