Historical Traveller Reviews of Grosvenor Suites Hotel

An excellent value

from Frobozz
We spent three nights in a corner suite on the 13th floor. Very good rooms (really, they're apartments) and some beautiful views (ours was) at an excellent price. The kitchenette is a nice bonus, the neighborhood is great and all the cable car lines are nearby. Staff is excellent -- they even can arrange rides back to the airport via their own car service (a Lincoln Town Car). The 'continental breakfast' is just pastries and drinks -- no fruit or anything else. There's a (pricey) small grocery store a block away so you can load up on snacks, etc.

If you're lucky, you'll meet Mary and Vivian, the San Francisco twins.
They live in a rent-controlled apartment in the building. When we met them in the elevator, they looked lovely in matching leopard-skin cowboy hats, blonde wigs and furs.

An excellent bargain and a place I'd definitely enjoy again.

Good value for money with attentive staff

from A TripAdvisor Member
Our first stay in San Francisco and very enjoyable.The staff were very helpful and the free internet access was a bonus.Simple breakfast but it saved us having to go out each morning.The first room we had was a little "tired" but we were soon offered a new room when we drew the matter to the attention of the staff. We would certainly stay there again.

Terrific for families

from A TripAdvisor Member
I really appreciated being able to put my daughter to sleep in the bedroom and then having a different room to go to afterwords. In a normal hotel room, I end of going to sleep at 8pm because that's when her bedtime is. A real value. Having a small kitchen and a refridgerator made our lives much simpler too.

Great Hotel, great deals

from A TripAdvisor Member
My first vacation with 3 other friends in San Francisco.The Hotel is just great. We had a Junior Suite. The room has a lot of space. To have a kitchenette was great, too. We used it when we were to tired to go out for Dinner.The Location is very central. 2 Minutes away from the Cable Car Stop. Some Blocks to Shopping areas on Union Square.If I go to San Francisco again I"ll book this hotel again!

Fantastic Value!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed here 2/5/03- 2/12/03. As a woman traveling solo on extended business trips, I always seek properties that have a kitchenette, are in a decent area, and relatively close to the Moscone Center. Read previous positive reviews of the Grosvenor Suites on TripAdvisor, booked through Expedia and received an outstanding value (my 7 night stay averaged a daily rate of $62.00!!!). I requested and received a higher level floor which cut down on street noise and offered a nice view of the East Bay. The studio room was quite large with 2 queen beds, a sofa, a table and chairs, closests galore, and a kitchenette stocked with pots, pans,wine glasses, silverware, plates, coffee maker, (even a corkscrew!), toaster, full oven, rangetop, microwave, full fridge. (BYO Coffee filters) Absolutely more than adequate for my needs but would be wonderful for a family. I believe I had one of the "smaller" suites and can only imagine that the 1 bedroom suites are truly huge! My only negative comment is that the room had a "lived in" sort of smell that I suggested to management could probably be handled by having the sofa cleaned. They do have a complimentary continental breakfast in the lobby every morning with coffee, juices, and assorted pastries.

The hotel is on Nob Hill directly across from the Mark Hopkins and 1 blk from the Powell Mason Cable Car. I walked to and from the Moscone Center (a good hike) that is easy when going downhill and burns a lot of carbs on the way back! The front desk staff was always helpful - ask Don for his listing and mini-reviews of local restaurants.

I have stayed at other hotels in this city where the rooms cost 3 times as much, were veritiable shoeboxes, and were quite noisy to boot. If you want a "luxury" hotel with more elaborate furnishings and room service, look elsewhere. If you want a terrific location with a large comfy room at a good value, I highly recommend this propery.

The Grovesnor is a very comfortable choice.

from AE1066
The Grovesnor's Junior suite offerred space and comfort, and an incredible view from the 18th floor. Although we did not make use of the complete kitchen, having a living room separate from the bedroom was a real plus, especially since one of us is an early riser. The location was convenient to public transportation which we used since we knew better than to drive around San Francisco. Although the lobby is tiny, having free internet access and pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable staff made up for the lack of public space. We would certainly return on our next visit to the City.

Good Value Suite Hotel in an upmarket area

from A TripAdvisor Member
Booked this hotel through Expedia UK after reading reviews on here. The hotel is situated in a fantastic part of San Francisco, 5 mins walk from Chinatown, and bang opposite the Mark Hopkins Hotel. 5 mins from Union Square. Hotel is as described on its website, very clean spacious suites, with small kitchenette. Maid service is OK, they just come in, hoover and make the beds... they don't do the washing up, but I can cope with that !! Breakfast is muffins /danish pastries, coffee, and juice, which you can take back up to your room if you want. Staff are friendly and helpful. Having spent half a day down at Fisherman's Wharf today, I am so glad that I did not book a hotel down there... the hotels down there look a bit run down.... if you want to stay in an area that is a glorified Blackpool, stay there, if you want to stay somewhere a bit more upmarket in a nice area, stay here. You won't regret it.

Bargain Accomodations

from A TripAdvisor Member
My son and I recently stayed at the Grosvenour Suites on Pine Street (Jan. 5-10). The Grosvenour Suites is actually an apartment building that has been converted into a hotel, although I estimate there are still approximately 30 full time residents still living there. They provide a daily continental breakfast that consists of juice, coffee, bagels and sweet rolls. I would rate the continental breakfast a notch below average. A plus that I did not know about until arriving is a computer is available, free of charge, in the lobby area. It is on a first come first served basis, but I did not have any problems getting a turn. The Grosvenour Suites is just a short walk (a block) to the cable car lines, which is the preferred mode of transportation in San Francisco. The hotel is also walking distance to the main hub of the downtown area. The daily housekeeping service was excellent. We stayed on the Pine Street side of the hotel so the noise level is quite high, but that is to be expected in a large downtown metro area. The kitchenette was quite useful during our stay as well. The only problem we had was they charged us a per minute rate for internet useage in our room, although we brought our own provider. I am in the process of having this matter resolved. The per minute charge is not mentioned in any hotel literature. This was a little annoying to find this out at checkout. Based on the price paid for the accomodations, I would say this place is a bargain. I would definitely stay there again.

Meet the SF twins!

from playagurl
I loved our stayed at the Grosvenor Suites. we meet the San Francisco twins who had lived in the building since the 1970s. That was cool. It is in a convenient location and not at all noisy. Great for a long stay. Would definitely go back!

d love to come back

from A TripAdvisor Member
As a family with small children we stayed 7 nights at the Grosvenor Suites in one of their Queen Suites. The rooms were of a good size, the kitchenette was handy, breakfast was a bonus. The TV had the required children's fare.

The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The concierge staff were able to provide useful travel advice, where to get a good Italian or Chinese meal and just made us all feel welcome.

The hotel is one block from the cable cars on Powell or California. We would recommend it to anyone. We certainly hope to be back someday!

Top Local Tips for San Francisco

Get the San Francisco CityPass Buy a CityPass at any MUNI station. At 54$ adults, 39$ for kids, it's a steal!! It includes unlimited MUNI transportation for 7 days, and admission to many museums. We got our money's worth just riding the cable cars. (Otherwise, they are 5$, each way. Add up a family of 5, on 5 roundtrip rides per day, for 7 days....yikes!!) Shop for groceries in Chinatown. (7 oranges, $1.10!) Pack snacks/fruit/sandwiches in your backpacks for lunches, and save huge $$, and even more time. We often eat lunch while we are walking, while sight seeing out of doors, or waiting in attraction lines. This is a fantastic city for children to explore, very family friendly, and not anywhere near as expensive a vacation as you might expect. It's a bargain for California in my opinion.

buy the city pass if you want local sightseeing and unlimited pass to cable car and local bus buy the city pass . Don't rent a car as car parking is expensive .

COMING AND GOING WE BOOKED 'BIG THINGS LIMOS' FOR A TOUR BETWEEN SFO AND SUITES. VINCE WAS G-R-E-A-T. WE TOOK THE SUB-WAY BACK TO THE AIRPORT, AND IT WAS FAST, SIMPLE, AND C-H-E-A-P!
