Positive Reviews

Ideal for foot and metro travel

Walk out your front door, and you'll be surrounded by the cultural and commercial delights of San Francisco. Numerous theaters, historic districts, and popular sights are within walking distance of the hotel, as are several metro stations and the iconic cable cars. .

Reasonably priced for downtown

What would you expect to pay for a hotel in the middle of the city? You'll find that the Touchstone Hotel's rates are surprisingly reasonable (at least for San Fran), leaving you with more funds for your dining and activities like touring Alcatraz. .

Clean and cozy rooms =

Between its prime location in the heart of the city and the reasonable rates, the hotel already has a few solid advantages. And, with an attentive and thorough housekeeping staff, comfy bedding, reliable wireless, and modern décor, it makes a great home base for SF.

Negative Reviews

Can be a little loud

With a location in downtown, many guests have noted that the area around the Touchstone Hotel can be noisy—especially between the traffic, the tourism trade, and the hotel guests. .

No air conditioning

Although San Francisco is generally a temperate city, some guests have noted that, during the warmer months, the hotel can heat up due to its lack of air conditioning. If staying in a stuffy room would detract from your vacation, you may wish to book during the cooler seasons. .

On the edge of the Tenderloin

Several prior visitors have noted the hotel's proximity to the Tenderloin District—a rougher part of the city. To put you at ease, though, many guests also reported feeling safe and secure despite the seedier nearby neighborhood.
