Historical Traveller Reviews of Parc 55 Hotel

Comfortable and good service

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife travels 20 weeks/year and stays in many hotels ranging from Best Western to Four Seasons. We found this hotel to be very comfortable, the room was large, the staff that we encountered were VERY friendly and helpful, and the area was NOT any worse than any other very large city. Yes there were homeless and the Tenderloin isn't far, but I felt no worse than I did in NYC or Phil or DC. Union Square is just as close as any bad area so it really isn't threatening. It's just a city, man.

Great Location

from A TripAdvisor Member
After reading the reviews posted here, and fully expecting some sort of difficulty, I went ahead and reserved a room. The rate from Marriott's web site was $95/night, plus the cost of parking ($35/day). For the level of service and quality of the room, this was outstanding. The hotel is across from the Powell Street BART station and the San Francisco visitors information store. Yes, there are homeless, but the area is busy with activity most of the day and was not a problem. It was disconcerting that San Francisco's finest were sparse, although that was true everywhere I went. My room had a very good view and was neat and clean with the usual Marriott style furnishings, including a settee and coffee table. Speaking of coffee, it's provided in the lobby, as there is no coffee maker in the room. Everyone, from the doorman to the housekeeper, was upbeat and professional.

Loved the Parc Renaissance

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Parc Renaissance for one night to celebrate my husband's birthday with dinner, a musical, and a hotel stay. I booked the room through the internet. We had a lovely, huge corner room on the sixth floor. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room rate included parking and breakfast. In walking through the corridors to the elevators, we did see standard room that were much smaller than ours.
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 Bad

from dstew
This hotel was beautiful with a great staff and great rooms. However, I would caution anyone with young children not to stay here. The location is right near the subway station and is swarming with homeless. Just cross the street and take a couple of steps and it is another world. If you are out late at night, take a taxi back. I was very upset and had a hard time explaing to my son why there were so many people living on the street and asking us for money. There were no police officers in site the 4 days we were there. I did not feel safe. However, once inside the hotel, I did. It is a great business location.

Very Nice Hotel, Perfect Location...

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed hear back in July over the July 4th holiday. This hotel is in a very convenient location!! If you like shopping, which my wife does........then it's a nice location downtown, close to shopping, restaurants, etc... The parking at the hotel is a bit steep in price $35 a day, but there are plenty of parking facilities around the hotel who will let you pay and come and go as you please for like $18 per day. The rooms were pretty nice and the conceirge is excellent!!
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 Francisco

from A TripAdvisor Member
After reading other reviews we had expected better from this hotel.
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 SF

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel is terrible. the location is bad, the staff is disagreeable.
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 hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband, brother, sister-in-law and nephew stayed at the parc 55 for a week and had a great stay. We booked the hotel through Expedia and had a problem free trip. The hotel staff was very pleasant and helpful.
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 Surprised

from A TripAdvisor Member
After reading the horrible reviews, this was the one hotel I was trying to avoid. When I found out that our bid on Priceline was accepted and that it was for the Renaissance Parc 55 I cried (no joke). Based on the other reviews, I had visions of homeless people traveling in packs and surrounding the hotel. I pictured dirty and small rooms in a rundown hotel.

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.

Hell

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I eagerly anticipated our trip to San Francisco. Although we certainly paid a fair share (even though we booked it through Priceline) we had a HORRIBLE experience. We were not aware that this hotel is located minutes from the Tenderloin district, which apparently is one of the most dangerous areas of SF. Unfortunately we became aware of AFTER we arrived. The area is FILLED with homeless people and drug dealers, we were afraid to leave the room after 9 pm, and we're from NYC! The hotel itself was decent (except for the fact that the walls are VERY thin), the staff was very nice, but the area was VERY SEEDY...don't make the same mistake we made, do not stay in this neighborhood!

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.
