Convenient location

Posted 20-Jul-2014
5 min away from a Bart station. 5 mins away from union square. Friendly staff. Hotel has character. Room is small but everything is clean and new. Had not seen any ghosts during my two nights stay here.

Good value in convenient location

Posted 12-Jul-2014
Pros: Friendly, helpful and efficient staff.
Cons: Decorations a bit tired, but currently undergoing a refurbishment programme. Only one small lift caused small delays.
Location: Biscuits and Blues club opposite is good. John's Grill is about a two minute walk away on Ellis and they have great steaks.
SF is an expensive place to stay and this is a good value hotel in a central location near Union Square. It is about a ten minute walk from the Powell St Bart station so getting there from the airport is not a problem. The staff were extremely helpful and courteous and are one of the hotels big assets. The decorations were a little tired, but it is going through a remodelling process at presnt and I am sure it will become even more desirable soon. There is a good blues music venue accross the street called Biscuits and Blues that I would also recommend if you like a relaxed, low key, live music experience.

A typical downtown hotel

Posted 08-Jul-2014
Pros: Location, cleanliness
Cons: Installation of a modern elevator
This hotel is located in downtown SF and it's going through a remodel. The hotel is surrounded by diners and is just steps from city bus lines and tourist buses. The place has an arrangement with a huge parking facility just across the street. Our room has probably been renovated. It was clean but small without microwave or refrigerator.The doorsteps are narrow. There's only one elevator and it's small, old and slow. What I'm trying to say is that it's a good place for individuals and couples, but families with young children should take into account some inconvenience. Again, the location is good and the price affordable.

Noisy Thursday night

Posted 07-Jul-2014
Pros: Nice staff, close to restaurants, shopping, and museums
Cons: NO trash pick up in the middle of the night. I could hear bottles clanking against each other all night as they sorted the trash bins.
Location: California Historical Museum, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Yoruba Park
My sister and I stayed at King George Thursday and Friday. Thursday was terribly noisy due to trash collection and noisy people outside that we could hear ALL NIGHT LONG.Friday was a better night as no noise outside. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Apparently if you get a room with 2 double beds it backs up to the area outside where they do trash collection, but all the other rooms are fine. We talked with other guests and they had a quieter night than us in regular rooms on that Thursday.

Great hotel in the middle of Union Square.

Posted 05-Jul-2014
The staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed being right in Union Square close to so many great places. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff's recommendations on places to eat were excellent. They also helped arrange a shuttle back to the airport.

Hotel was conveniently located in the Union Square district. It is in the middle of a remodel but didn't notice any issues related to it. Only thing is that walls are pretty thin--or the people in the next room were extraordinarily loud--as we could hear them talking through the wall. But overall good experience, especially because of the reasonable price.

Okay hotel in Union Square area

Posted 02-Jul-2014
Pros: Location and price.
Hotel is undergoing renovations which did not include our room yet. Rooms are small but okay for two people. Walls very thin so we heard lots of noise from guests next to us. Staff was very nice and helpful.

Pros: It is situated in a good location. Staff is polite and helpful.
Cons: Probably I would recommend they find a way to speed up the valet service for the car.
Location: Great shopping right nearby; lots of art galleries.
King George Hotel staff was very polite and willing to assist in anything we needed.
