Historical Traveller Reviews of Edwardian San Francisco Hotel

t go there if you have a car

from ch_s
We arrived quite late in the evening by car, and it was difficult even to stop by the hotel to ask about the parking. We ended up parking around the block (probably illegally), and were advised that the hotel guests can use a parking lot a few blocks away. The area is full of homeless, and when we found the parking lot it was empty and we did not feel secure leaving the car there by itself. However, we didn't have much other choice as there was no supervised parking in the area. When we booked the hotel through Venere, the information was that the hotel has a garage. This is not true. Unloading the luggage is also quite difficult as there is nowhere to stop outside the hotel.

The hotel has carpets both in the hallways and in the rooms, and these seem so old that they really do not feel clean. So even if the room probably was clean it felt quite dusty. There is no ventilation and as others have mentioned it's impossible to open the windows... well you can, but they are old and quite dangerous. The bathrooms are large, but the appliances (hairdryer) did not really look usable.

The location was ok; it's central, but full of homeless. They are not dangerous, but I would not rate this as the best neighborhood. Going around from the hotel was easy because of the tram and buses stopping just outside the hotel entrance.
Management Response from TRIPADISORS
There is a parking lot available less then one block away from the hotel on Market street, another second lot available two blocks away from the Hotel, the cost is $ 10.00 to $ 15.00 for a 24 hours in/out priviledges. As far as our unloading zone it is directly behind the hotel about 100 feet away from the Hotel entrance, for the time being it is not available because of some work being done on the street behind the building. We are sorry for the inconvenience it may cause to our guests. It is a great location, it is in the heart of san francisco, there are some very renowned restaurants, cafes and art deco galeries on the same block.

Excellent Service and Great Location

from A TripAdvisor Member
I've stayed here 4 or 5 times over the past few years and have always been glad I did. The location is great and the rooms are clean and well maintained. David and his staff are courteous and very friendly. On my last trip I left something behind which they found and sent back to me, then called to follow up. Top notch!

Came for a night; stayed the whole week

from A TripAdvisor Member
I came to San Francisco to look for an apartment and figured I would stay one night at a hotel, and then move into a weekly rental place after that. But the Edwardian is centrally located and the management was terrifcally accomodating, so I ended up staying the whole week at the Edwardian while apartment hunting. I love the European feel to the place. Only bad thing is some construction is going on off the back of the hotel, but it's not a big deal. Hotel was great, found my apartment, all worked out...

excellent value and service

from A TripAdvisor Member
I originally checked in to a hotel that turned out to be a nightmare (cockroaches, etc.) and decided to move to the Edwardian.

David the manager was extremely friendly and helpful. He gave me a free room upgrade and put me in a room with wireless access when he saw my laptop. The room and bathroom were clean and nicely decorated.

For the price, quality, location and service, I think this hotel would be hard to beat.

realy good surprise

from jamelCannes_France
i went to this hotel for 10 days in april, and i realy enjoyed the team, the hotel's style, and it was about 3 min by foot from the subway, and 2 stations away from the most popular place for doin'' shopping and taking cable cars to ficherman's wharf; my room was clean, and the common bathroom to, i'll be back again!

Offardable and located in very good place

from A TripAdvisor Member
My stay here was for 6 days, the house keeping and the management was also friendly and helpful. For that price we can't expect more and also its located in Market st, what else I can tell about this..better deal at a better place, i feel.

Nice little gem

from seadog59
As a journalist I travel quite a bit. I checked out the reviews of the edwardian on this site but decided to check it out anyway. So with some trepidation I checked into the hotel. I found this charming little hotel to be a hidden gem in the city. The staff were both gregarious and informative. I opted to take the cheapest room and even though it is small(it does have a double bed)I found it to be tastefully decorated and very clean. The hotel has a coffee bar for free and reading rooms on every floor. For those of you that like a french style pension or country Inn this is the place to stay! Very reasonable rates and located on an upscale part of market street(not the area with all the homeless) it is convienent to public trans and all the tourist sites that san fran has to offer. Of course with any stay there are always some things one would like to be different. For me if they offered larger bars of soap for the shower and herbal teas besides the black tea it would be grand. I would highly recomend this hotel to anyone looking for a great deal in san fran.

A wonderfull stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
My familly came in from Washington D.C. They stayed at the Edwardian Hotel since it is located in the heart of San Francisco. It is very convenient, close to all the shops, attractions, and transportation.

The rooms are clean and cozy, the service was outstanding, and the price was reasonable comparing it to other European style hotels.

I will definetly recommend this place and I will bring all my visitors. Matter of fact, my girlfreind and I are planing to spend the night there for her birthday.

Terrible Experience; Refused to Stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
ANY review of this hotel that is above 1-Star is VERY SUSPECT!!!!
Booked this thru [-----------] based on pictures/review saying it was a “European boutique style hotel”. First bad sign was that the front door was locked and it wasn’t even 5:00 p.m.; after front desk clerk finally opened door, he was rude and condescending. Elevator was scary; felt for sure we were going to get stuck. Room on the third floor overlooking Market Street (truly the busiest street in S.F.) so it was loud, cold (no heat and it was February), no closet but a metal rack shoved beside bed. Bathroom was ok but that was it. After my husband asked me if I thought they rented this room “by the hour” that was all I needed to get out of there. However, this was after we clearly heard a drug deal and solicitation going on down on the street even though we were on the 3rd floor!
Called front desk to ask for money back (we had booked / prepaid for two nights) was told no, they refused to give a refund and the clerk was extremely rude. We then called “Hotels” and advised that this location misrepresented itself on the web site and that it was a dangerous, unsafe environment. The DID refund our money and offered to find another hotel for us and even called a Cab to pick us up.
Management Response from TRIPADISORS
Unfortunitely the guests are outright lying while they are guessing that we rent by the hour. We never did and we will never do that kind of business. The edwardian hotel is a tourist hotel, our guests are corporate and leisure travelers and it is a very respected establishment. The room facing market street on the third floor has been remodeled in the fall of 2005 in fact that room has a jaccuzi tub, it is excactly the room we show on our website and it looks excactly the same, all our pictures are authentic. We are on one of the better block of market street between franklin and gough street, next door to one of the best 3 stars restaurant in the country and Art Deco galeries.

Enjoyed my stay

from CelloMan1961
I stayed at the Edwardian for two weeks. I would use it again and would recommend it to friends. Caveat: I imagine each room is different. I like what I got!
- weekly rate was negotiable esp. when I had already explored other nearby places and let them know I was looking at them.
- bathroom clean, new
- high-speed wireless internet though it did not cover the entire hotel. Seemed to be best near the front common areas on each floor.
- "Old World" charm including a very special elevator that holds old paintings in frames on its walls.
- Place was clean, quiet
- Bed was average or better than average
- Cable TV (though a few stations were fuzzy until I moved the tv a bit).
- location is pretty good, though after dark there's little quick/fast food open nearby. But that stuff isn't a far walk. Lots happening up Van Ness which is only a few blocks away. Transit very easy to get to.
- staff were friendly.

CON
- no mini fridges or microwaves in the rooms I saw.
- no pop/soda/snack machines that I could see.
- shower a bit weak
- my room (#34), while having a nice view, faced SOMETHING that gave off a whole lot of cigarette smoke! I believe it was the fancy restaurant below the window. So I kept the window closed. I never noticed the smoke smell w the window closed.
- room was small but nicely done.

Top Local Tips for San Francisco

GREAT LOCATION no need to have a car it is a great location for public transportation.

pleasant stay do not need a car. good restaurants close by

The best tours are the cheapest too The best and most cost-effective way to 'see' a city is to hop on the city bus. Anywhere you need to go, the driver can usually tell you a little something about where you're going (so long as he/she isn't too busy!). I saw Haight/Ashbury, Castro Street, Fisherman's Wharf, and downtown San Francisco on less than $10 for the "tour". I paid $1.50 each day and hopped a bus, getting a transfer when I paid. Anytime I saw something "interesting" I hopped off and checked it out, then caught the next bus without being charged. Most city visitors centers will provide bus / train maps at no charge either online or via the mail. Plan your site seeing wisely, and you could save quite a bit by not taking cabs or guided bus tours.
