Enjoyed the hotel, just not the immediate area. Pretty view of the very pretty city hall building, but as we walked around the area we came across so many homeless people. We'd planned to walk to the bus stop most days, but instead we used Lyft most of the trip to go to and from the hotel, and that was fine. They do a great job of making the hotel nice... if only it were in a different location...
Hotel is very affordable and close to the center / attraction of San Francisco. Union Square is a few blocks away.
Free breakfast from 6-10am.
The staff is very helpful, we were able to check in prior to our check in time.
Hotel offers transportation to/from airport $16 per person. Uber offers Uberpool $15 up to 2 ppl to/from the airport.
Very friendly staff and helpful staff. I love the whole feel and look of the hotel. The complementary breakfast was excellent. On the bad side there is no ice machine in the lobby, but the staff does bring you ice if you need it.
Located at the center of Japan town
Not far from tourist attractions
Acceptable parking fee
Very helpful and friendly staff (the best of this hotel)
Room is clean and comfortable with good quality bed.
Only thing I don't like is the clear glass door of bathroom. If you don't stay with your couple, it will be very awkward.
"Nice hotel, great location, could do with updating"
We enjoyed our 4 night stay at Hotel Majestic. However there are definitely some minuses which could be improved upon.
Starting with the good things - the location is great (about 10/15 minutes walk from Downtown one way and the lovely Pacific Heights region the other), the room was massive, as was the bathroom and the hotel facilities were good. It is also a slightly cheaper option than other San Fran hotels...though bearing in mind the bad features, I can see why.
The hotel does need some serious updating. Whilst the rooms were very clean, and I did like the old fashioned decor, the hotel has certainly seen better days - with wallpaper peeling around the edges, very old fashioned fittings (we were a bit apprehensive about using the shower but it wasn't too bad). Thr hotel would be able to keep its old fashioned feel by installing some more mod cons and updating the decor, I'm sure.
Also, whilst the staff were fine and helpful enough they didn't exude the friendly west coast American attitude I was expecting...they weren't all that friendly and I got the impression it was all a bit of an effort to assist guests.
I would recommend this hotel due to the location and the price (hotels in San Fran are generally incredibly expensive) but it needs to up its game in order to compete with the best.
The location is great. We especially appreciated the free parking with in and out privileges. We were upgraded to a larger room. We had everything we needed. The morning coffee and doughnuts was a helpful touch. We needed a place to stay for a 2 day event, and this hotel fit the bill.
