Fair 4.0
The hotel itself wasn’t all that bad. It wasn’t great but it wasn’t bad. Couple things I didn’t like was that the hotel doesn’t have any central air conditioning. It has no air conditioning at all. Being that it’s in San Francisco, I’ve stayed at places that do not have any air conditioning and a few open windows later, no problem. Not here. Can’t speak for other rooms but the room I had I opened both windows and I got no air circulation into the room and room temperature was a good 20degrees hotter than outside. I had a ceiling fan and they brought up a portable fan but it was so weak it was t blue to suck in the outside air and circulate it. That plus the age of the hotel the room had a musty smell to it that I couldn’t clear up because it was impossible to get any air circulation. I wish they had advertised or stated somewhere there was no ac but couldn’t find a mention of it on their website nor on the Expedia hotel info.

Tilden Hotel Bomb
The room was gross stuff in the shower....corners of floors were dirty..hadn't been cleaned in a long time. Hotel claimed to have room service; however, there was no room service menu anywhere in the room, and when I asked for one they said there is one in the room...and took 10 minutes to find one for me. Elevator was so small, that it really could only hold two adults with their luggage, which already stressed me out because it was so small. As we were going to our room, the elevator stopped and an employee tried to get in with us..I kept saying no, please wait, I Can't because it's too small and I'm having a panic attack but she insisited on pushing her way in anyway. I actually broke down when I finally got out of the elevator. I have NEVER been upset in any elevator..this is an Extremely small one. For the rest of our stay we had to walk up and down 3 flights of really steep stairs. Online said parking was available, but failed to mention that it costs $49 per day and that it takes 20-25 minutes to get your car each time you park it. The hotel is I'm a very gross part of town but didn't look like it online. We drove to Fisherman's Wharf and when we got back, my husband stepped out of the car and into a huge pile of feces. We tried to get someone from the hotel to help us because he couldn't walk into the hotel like that..he needed to clean his shoe. A hotel employee couldn't find any kind of spray cleaner or anything for us to use, it was ridiculous.

Poor 2.0
This was a hotel only in name. In terms of the way the room looked and amenities in it, it was a lot closer to a hostel than to a hotel. It was freezing cold and, of course, the heater didn't work; nothing was done about it. But even this wasn't going to make me write a bad review if it weren't for the excessive noise. There was shouting and loud music all night long, and I could barely get a wink most nights! I have only had to bear this level of noise when I lived in student dorms, so this should give you an idea. The only good thing about Tilden is its location - it's just across the street from Hilton and minutes away from Union square. Overall, it was a really bad experience and I am truly sorry I didn't pay a bit more and stay at a better place.

Poor 2.0
wow, if I wanted to move back in time I would have rented a delorean and drive at 88 miles an hour. this place is just a from the 20's, oh, wait the 20's? that's retro right? imagine more like 1929, the great depression! this place is just old and rotten. the rooms have no amenities, NO AC!!!! am sorry let me correct that, windows are stuck and NO AC!!!! enjoy your sweat lodge.... the reception people were just unpleasant, no real care if you are ok or feel safe. but wait!!!! if you book in the next few months of summer you get a free apocalyptic experience where every homeless in the city of san francisco will show up to ask you for some change on your way in or out of the lobby. its pretty gnarly! people sleeping on the sidewalks, every intersection has at least 30 people staring at you or trying to ask you for somthing, not the most safe or secure surrounding for a 4 star hotel. this is not a 4 star hotel, it is nearly a 2.5 and I am being generous. I would never stay or recommend this place to anyone, anywhere, at any time, not even if it was 1929.

Very Good 8.0
Great location - just add resort fee and parking
This hotel isn’t fancy but clean. It’s a typical old San Francisco hotel that they’ve tried to update as best they can. This gives it a nice vibe though. It was a bit overpriced, because they add on $33 resort fee and then parking is $50, so take that into consideration when you’re comparing prices. Although most hotels charge for parking. The sink in our room was very small and had a big crack in it, but everything was newly painted and linens felt clean. The valet was very nice and helpful. The location was great, near Union Square, Chinatown and about a mile from North Beach. You could walk to the ferry building as well. Probably about 2 miles to fisherman‘s wharf and Ghirardelli Square. We love to walk when we are in the city so this hotel was perfect, in a safe part of town and close enough to everything if you like to walk.
