Fodor's Expert Review Grand Hyatt San Francisco

345 Stockton St., San Francisco, California 94108, United States See on Map

Revamped for business travelers who want to be in the heart of the action, this Union Square property might feel corporate, but the staff adds that dash of San Francisco kindness that sets this Hyatt above the standard.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Despite the online chatter, Wi-Fi is now complimentary.

room

Rooms done in warm autumnal tones with textured custom furniture, original artwork, and teak beds, are all high-tech: windows can be blacked out from your bed, while a "jack pack" projects your laptop on a swiveling flat-screen. Spring for the Grand Club, and you'll get a room on an upper floor and access to the all-day food and beverage service, computers, and concierge.

LOCATION

Getting Around

The hotel provides valet parking, albeit pricey. Muni buses and trains stop within a 10-minute walk, connecting travelers to the city's varied neighborhoods. Catch the BART train to Oakland and San Francisco airports. Walkers can access the Financial District, Moscone Center, the waterfront and Union Square all within a half hour.

Restaurants

For a sampling of San Francisco's diverse dishes, head over to Tacorea (4-minute walk) for Korean style tacos in a casual setting. Some of the city's best Thai food is hidden in the Parc 55 hotel's Kin Khao (8-minute walk) where spicy curry and seafood-laced noodle dishes reign supreme.

Bars

Don an aloha shirt and meander up to the Tonga Room (7-minute walk) for a kitschy tiki vibe complete with mai tais and a dance floor populated by folks who generally have enjoyed one too many. Join the young and beautiful locals for a cocktail at the Burritt Room Tavern (1-minute walk).

WHY WE LIKE IT

This pet-friendly and tech-forward hotel in the heart of Union Square pleases corporate travelers and their families.
