The San Francisco Hilton Hotel in the financial district is one of two Hilton Hotel properties in the city (the other being in Union Square.) This Hilton sits on the border of San Francisco’s financial district, Chinatown and North Beach and is about a ten minute walk to San Francisco’s Union Square. Although the hotel is marketed as being in the “financial district” it is about a 5-7 minute walk from Market and California Streets where the bulk of the financial district is concentrated. Visitors to San Francisco looking to spend most of their time exploring Chinatown and North Beach will find this hotel to be an ideal location as it is just steps away from both neighborhoods. Visitors looking to travel to Fisherman’s Wharf will find it to be about a 20-25 minute walk. Alternatively guests can walk about 10 minutes to Market Street and take the antique street cars nonstop to Fisherman’s Wharf or walk 10 minutes to Union Square and wait up to an hour for a cable car that also has direct service to the Wharf.
The Hilton Hotel in the financial district is a tall thin high rise building affording most of the guests spectacular views of San Francisco. The hotel houses 544 guest rooms that are known to be fairly on the spacious level. This hotel at one time was once a Holiday Inn for many years so has enjoyed a fairly expensive remodel and upgrade to bring to Hilton standards. Each of the rooms comes equipped with 42 inch high definition tvs, free internet access, bathrooms with granite countertops, “oversized” work stations with ergonomic chairs and Hilton’s famous “serenity beds” to name a few. Bathrooms are also furnished with toiletries from Crabtree & Evelyn.
Depending on what side of the hotel the room is on is the type of view that guests will enjoy. The hotel is a tall slender high rise that is oriented so that rooms either face out to the north or to the south. Rooms facing north have views of Coit Tower, the waterfront, other San Francisco high rises and residential buildings and on clear days the Golden Gate Bridge in the distance. Rooms to the south have views of the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Bridge and the commercial high rises that line Market Street.
Guests seeking to visit the Golden Gate Bridge will need a car or to board either a city bus or tour bus in Union Square.
One of three HIltons in San Franciso, this high rise property straddles the border between the financial district and Chinatown. Hotel on older side, rooms on upper views afford spectacular views of the bay and city.
