Never Ever Want To Come Backfrom CKLL
The room that I was assigned to was an accessible room. Which was also located next to a "storage room" little did I know that it also meant that there would be a constant loud motor humming sound/vibration to my room. Although there is free high speed internet, it's not wireless...so remember to bring your own cord or else be prepared to be charged a fee.
The bed was hard, and the room was warm (no AC) so I had to make do with fans to cool my room off. The shower head was broken so a sit down shower was my only option.
The valet parking is not actually with the hotel. They work with another company, so they can only guess what is going on with your car. I tried to fit my car into their valet area, I told the bell captain/concierge who then said that my car would get ticketed if I left it there. Instead of moving the car himself he asked me to move it because he didn't know when the valet service was going to be picking up the car. I had to get back into my car and move it myself...why was I paying over $30 a day for?
It doesn't feel as though many of the workers at Hotel Fusion have a clear understanding about what their job is or what customer service means. I really do suggest paying more to stay somewhere else.
Comfortable and modernfrom ellynet
Nice Hotel, Great Valuefrom chriz_chen
Near to Union Square and some nice resturant near to the hotel..
For the the price i pay its really is value for money
cozy and nice hotel right in the city centerfrom chaoleonard
Nice Hotelfrom kimpy
Pros: Hotel staff very friendly and helpful, room was nicely decorated and spotlessley clean, location was convenient to BART and lots of shopping.
Cons: No in-room movies (as advertised on the hotel's website), continental breakfast was the cheapest I've every seen. A staff member did tell me they plan to upgrade it in the next few weeks, air conditioning did not work, location is noisy (any hotel in this area is probably noisy).
Overall, I liked it and would stay again. I don't think you can beat it for the price!
Loved the Fusion - Great Hotelfrom slimshaney
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Fusion June 26th - July 3rd.
Arrived early afternoon, and had no problem checking in.
All the staff we encountered during our stay were very curtious, friendly and helpful. Everyone from the front desk to recetion to the cleaning staff.
Had no problem with street noise - you're in the middle of one of the most popular areas of the city, and noise is to be expected.
The hotel is 2 minutes away from Powell Street turntable/BART station/Market Street (they are literally just around the corner), and only a few more minutes away from Union Square.
The hotel has recently been completely refurbished, and is a real gem.
The room was on the 5th floor overlooking the street.
A great room - a fair size with all new furniture, fixtures and fittings.
Extremely comfortable bed, and a nice large LCD TV on the wall at the end - perfect to watch the World Cup whilst laying in bed (8am in the morning remember).
I would without question stay at the Fusion again, and would whole-heartedly recommend that you do the same.

Nice Little Hotel for the moneyfrom Skiersx2
A good boutique hotelfrom positivity
The room rate included buffet breakfast - well, free flow of juices, coffee, muffins and toasts - which meant that we did not have to scurry out for food in the morning. We even managed to tap into the wireless connection of a neighbouring building and free internet access.
It would have been a dream stay for the price except for a little - or for some, a rather major issue. As the rooms do not come with air-conditioning, leaving the windows opened - it was summer after all, meant that we had to put up with the street noise along Ellis Street all through the day and night. This included the occasional screaming drunkard and blaring fire engines as well as car alarms. Closing the windows, on the other hand, led to sweaty sheets. Must say that the 2 nights there had not been very restful.
For this reason, a "3" rating (well "3.5" score would have been more appropriate) has to be awarded. Would still happily recommend the hotel to budget travellers who want a clean and functional hotel next to Market/Powell and Union Square.
Great little hotel in Union Squarefrom NoCalBonnie
Yes, the rooms are small and basic. But, they are impeccably clean and well-appointed. Towels were soft and large, bed linens were new and of high-quality, and bathroom was stocked with generous amounts of Rusk products. And surprisingly for an older building in San Francisco, the hallways did not have that musty old building smell.
Hard to find ice machine (there is only one on the fourth floor) but the front desk was easy to reach and helpful. The free breakfast was really only bread with a super-slow toaster, muffins, coffee/tea/hot cocoa, and juice--nothing very exciting. But with such great restaurants around--who wants to eat at the hotel anyway.....
I felt that for the price paid, I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. I will stay here again next time I'm in SFO.
Top Local Tips for San Francisco
Metro Pass Buy the pass at the kiosk in Union Square. It pays for itself with 4 rides on the cable car.
Bike ride across the Golden Gate Bridge We rented a tandem bike and rode back and forth across the Golden Gate Bridge. There are heaps of bike rental companies around the Fisherman's Wharf area. My wife liked it so much that 2/3 of the way back, she said let's do it again. So we doubled back and made 2 roundtrips. It's a great view and an iconic image of SF that you will remember for a lifetime. A word of warning...there are a couple of hills as you approach the bridge, so it may be a challenge for the less fit riders. No problem, just get off and walk the bike.
Always be Careful I didn't realize that San Francisco had so many homeless people. Just use caution when strangers ask for money - because they will especially if they can tell that you are a tourist.
