The Hilton Hotel San Francisco – In The Financial District

There are three Hilton Hotels in San Francisco — the oldest, on Union Square; the newest, called Parc 55; and one in the Financial District. In our articles we review what each has to offer, their similarities, their differences, and ponder if a Hilton Hotel in San Francisco would be a match for your travel needs, your budget, and your personality! For now, let's look at the Financial District Hilton.

Unfortunately, like too many expensive hotels in the city, there is an extra charge for WIFI at the Hilton Financial District. We're hoping that changes soon; meanwhile we lower our rating one step due to that outdated fee. That aside, guests do love the convenient location, clean rooms and Sunday Brunch at the in-house eateries — 750 Restaurant and casual fare at the Flyte Bar.

Top Details at the Hilton in the Financial District

We'd describe the Hilton Financial District offering as being infused with calm elegance and understated good taste. Just three blocks from North Beach, a pedestrian bridge connects the hotel to historic Portsmouth Square. As you would expect, there is an in-house restaurant and a full service spa. It's located where Chinatown mashes up against the Financial District.

Guests love the central location, the friendly staff and the restaurant. There is, however, a litany of many small complaints about rooms not being ready by 3:00 PM and guests having to wait until 4:30 to check-in, or the lobby printer not working, or the concierge not being available until 9:00 AM, or the expensive parking ($60 valet parking per day). There's a general feeling that the hotel does not deliver enough value for its price.

Rooms & Suites

The neutral color palette allows the views of the city skyline to be the star attraction. All rooms have down-filled serenity beds, down-filled comforters, duvets & non-allergenic pillows that feel like down. Choose from standard room, which they call the Classic Experience, all the way up to an executive one bedroom suite, called VIP Luxury. Book this suite and you're in for a treat! .

Special Packages

There are a usually number of packages to choose from. Whe, it's available the Bed & Breakfast package includes a full American breakfast for two at 750 Restaurant. The Romance package includes early check-in, late check-out, a full breakfast, plus a bottle of bubbly delivered to your room. There's also Family Fun, with breakfast for four and even a LGBT-friendly package.

Dining & Cocktails

The 750 Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Flyte Wine & Beer Bar is a casual place for a glass a wine, regional craft beers, and savory small plates and appetizers. Favorites at the Flyte Bar are a glass of Gloria Ferrer sparkling wine from Sonoma County; Old Bay Crab Cakes; and the 750 Burger with bacon, smoked cheddar, caramelized onions, and horseradish aioli on a brioche bun.

The 750 Restaurant's menu changes often, and the reviews are generally uneven though there is one constant: guests love the Sunday Brunch.

The Bottom Line

It you have to be in SF for business and meetings in the Financial District, and aren't that interested in the city's attractions, this would be a satisfactory choice. But if you're vacationing in the City by the Bay, what with the negatives we've reviewed above, and with so many other great San Francisco hotel options (historic luxury hotels, for example), this Hilton would not be our first choice.
