Historical Traveller Reviews of Parc 55 Hotel
Comfortable and good servicefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Great Locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Loved the Parc Renaissancefrom A TripAdvisor Member
If you stay there, ask for a corner room or an upgrade. Be prepared for the number of homeless in the area. Walking back from the theater was unnerving even with other theater goers nearby. Lots of restaurants, art galleries, and shopping within a few blocks. Try the Grand Cafe for dinner and have a drink at the Farallon.
Both Great and Badfrom dstew
Very Nice Hotel, Perfect Location...from A TripAdvisor Member
They're very nice and will answer any questions you have. I strongly suggest using their services. The only bad experiences we had were the delay in having someone come to open your safe deposit box.
Unfortunately, you don't have them in your rooms. Also, there are homeless people living around the area, but they don't bother anyone, which wasn't a big deal to us. I don't think we'd stay here again, but not because we didn't like the hotel (which we did).......I think if we ever come back, we'll try the W Hotel in downtown. Heard it's very trendy and located right next door to the Art Museum.
What a letdown! - Renaissance Parc 55 San Franciscofrom A TripAdvisor Member
Room decors are boring, to say the least, and furnishings are much like those you would find in a highway motel. It is located next to a rough part of town. Parking was expensive at $35 per night (2003). Next time we will look for better value. This hotel just doesn't cut it!
The worst hotel in SFfrom A TripAdvisor Member
the rooms are dark and small. I also stayed at the Stanford Court in Nob Hill, which is an excellent hotel. do yourself a favor and go to the Stanford.
great hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
One night we got carry out and the resturant did not give us silverware and room service sent some up to our room right away. The housekeeping staff was especaily friendly. Really everyone from the bellhops to the front desk were great. Also the view could not be beat. We were on the 23rd floor and could see the whole city. Location could be kind of scary but lots and lots of shopping. It was right in the middle of all the shops so we could drop our bags off and not have to go very far.
The only thing I would change is that they did not have coffee makers in the room. Overall a very pleasant stay and I would highly reccommend this hotel.
Expected the Worst, Was Pleasantly Surprisedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Maybe it was because I was expecting the worst, I was pleasantly surprised. All of the rooms in the hotel have been recently renovated.
Our room was spacious and nicely decorated (looked brand new). It was extremely clean and we had a beautiful view of the city. There was also good water pressure in the shower (something you can't find in the newer hotels). The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly.
After speaking with some of the locals, I knew to stay only to the east side of the hotel. (Supposedly the southwest side is the really bad part of town.) I think if you didn't know this beforehand, you could wander off into the bad part of the city and this could really impact your opinion of the location. This hotel is only 3 blocks from Union Square. There are tons of shops and restaurants within walking distance.
Let me just say that I'm very picky about where I stay. We usually stay at Starwood properties or at the Four Seasons. This was my first time using Priceline. This hotel was very nice. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

Top Local Tips for San Francisco
Kuleto's Italian Restaurant Nice place to eat and reasonable priced. Next to Villa Florence Hotel on Powell St.
Transportation Passes Suggest buying a three to five day transportation passport which are sold in front of Powell station and trolly cars.
Muni Passport Buy a Muni pass at the cable car kiosk at union square or at Walgreens - it is $11 for a 1 day pass or $18 for a 3 day pass and you get unlimited cable car and bus rides (a good deal when you consider a round trip cable car ticket ends up costing $10). Also the San Francisco bus system is very good and user friendly (not creepy). It is efficient and used by many locals instead of dealing with the inconvenience and cost of a car.
