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.

This is a typical Hilton hotel in terms of the soaps, sheets and towels that you will see in the room. My room also had a coffee maker and a refrigerator. I did not use the restaurant or parking. Take the BART from the airport. The hotel is right next to a station, a VERY short walk. I found the front desk agent Maria particularly helpful. She was able to point out things in the neighborhood and gave me some directions. The concierge is also available, but was busy when I arrived. The design of the hotel is very interesting and I would call it 80's-esq though I don't know anything about architecture. The rooms have these great bay windows which makes it nice to take in the skyline views. Read less

Be prepared for $80+ parking per day and if you are a Hilton Honors member, don't expect benefits. Everything there they charge for and really you don't have any benefits as a Honors member. No lounge, happy hour, business space, etc.

Good day, In my original review, I mentioned my dissatisfaction with the fact that hotel refused to reimburse me for the early departure. Further to my review and complaint, they ended up reimbursing me. Cheers!
