Affordable hotel near Union Square

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 23, 2007

Stayed 3 nights during Thanksgiving at this charming, if somewhat old, hotel. I stayed at their 1-bedroom suite:

Room - Good
The 1-bedroom suite was about 500sqft and was richly appointed. Dining table, couch, work table, 2 TV's, two sink in the bathroom and a jacuzzi tub. Some of the furnitures need updating though, as they are showing signs of wear.

Service - Average
Service at this hotel was a bit mixed. For example, they have coffee & tea in the morning and wine reception in the evening: nice. But they don't have a coffee maker in the suite?
Also, the L'Occitane soap bars are nice, but shouldn't you provide even a basic bubble bath liquid soap when there's a jacuzzi in the room?
The free wireless internet is nice though (albeit a bit slow).

Location - Very Good
Located at Post & Taylor - it's a short 5 minutes walk to Union Square. If you walk West a block or so there's a bunch of ethnic restaurants that are really good.

Price - Good
Paid about $325/night for the 1-bedroom suite; it's hard to find a suite under $400 in downtown San Francisco.

Overall - Good
I will consider coming back here, although it will not be my first choice.

Miscellaneous:
The building is non-smoking, which kinda sucks (for me!)

Directions: Post & Taylor

Great boutique hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 29, 2006

I stayed at the Prescott Hotel for 3 nights and really enjoyed the hotel. Its location couldn't be better, just two blocks from Union Square. Rooms are large, with king size beds, a sitting area and very nicely decorated, with marble bathrooms and good Aveda toiletries. Cable tv offers many channels. The service was also good though not outstanding.

In the afternoons they serve wine in the lounge, where there is a nice fireplace and it's a wonderful place to relax after a busy day shopping or visiting the city. There is no breakfast room but you can order breakfast to your room. There aren't many choices though and it's a bit on the expensive side. They have a restaurant though , the Postrio, where you can have your meals. I had lunch there once and it was very good. If you are driving, they have valet parking, so , you don't have to worry about it.

Unique Quality: Excellent location!

Directions: Two blocks from Union Square

Downtown hot-spot

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 26, 2002

The Prescott is a great boutique hotel! It is of course in one of the older buildings in town but the rooms are very nice and have recently been renovated.
The standard rooms are just what you'd expect, standard. I would suggest that if can, book a room on the club-level (preferrably the 7th floor) to get access to the club lounge and other complimentary goodies...it's well worth it! I say to request the 7th floor as it is not on the same floor as the club lounge but I feel has the larger of the club-levele rooms. Because the hotel is older, you will have to transfer on the 4th floor to another elevator to gain access to the 7th floor but it's not a huge hassle.

Unique Quality: The Prescott offers a great sit-down dining experience at Postrio Restaurant (by Wolfgang Puck). I didn't have the pleasure of eating here but if you can, I'm sure it's worth the experience.
Also, if you're staying on the club-level, try and catch one of the evening's manager receptions in the lounge (430p-630p) with an multitude of beverages and appetizers. This is also a great way to meet and mingle with other travelers at the hotel.
