    Excellent location, near main shops and transport.

    Rooms are small and the room seemed cleaned but when you looked in detailed it was nos; there were hairs everywhere (sink, bed, bathroom).

  • Couple
    8.8

    Decor of room was updated and in good taste. Staff was helpful and friendly. Location was ideal for shopping and near Bart.

    Water pressure was poor for the shower and sink. Parking was expensive $32 for overnight but not out of the ordinary for the area.

  • Couple

    While the hotel is very old it has major character and was VERY clean. The location was outstanding; close to shopping/Union square, muni/bart stations, and multiple restaurants. I will stay here again.

    The bathroom is pretty small and "older"

    Near Folsom Street Fair, but far from free parking. Townsend St was a 15 minute walk and free parking.

  • Single
    6.2

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. The Hotel was well situated.

    There was no pressure for the shower. I complained the first day and it got better but by the end of the week it was terrible again. The hotel was very expensive..

    Convenience of location Helpful staff

    While the room was good, I found the other facilities of the hotel rather limited and the appearence of the downstairs areas rather gloomy. The attached restaurant was good for breakfast but rather limited in range and quality for other meals.

  • Single
    6.4

    The many international tourists

    Street very noisy, especially at 3 am when the trucks arrive and back up, firing their alarms, room needs upkeep (ceiling). It is a little Kitchy for my personal taste

  • Family with children

    I was surprised and disappointed that the tv had all the cable news stations (cnn, msnbc, hln...) but not Fox News. Do they have a politial agenda?? I found it very curious, frustrating and disappointing. I would think twice about staying at the Pickwick in the future.

    Spacious accomodation at a reasonable price (Room 801)

    Gym was fairly basic

  • Single
    8.8

    Service quality was very nice. I enjoyed staying at the very convenient area near to the Moscone convention center and shopping zone.

    Although stayed in a room at the highest floor (8th), traffic noise was sometimes large.

  • Single

    It is close to the Moscone Convention center

    The staff are unhelpful. The internet stinks ( the router was down for 2 days and the speed is very slow). The room has cracked paint . Street noise is loud and activities in the adjacent rooms can be heard throughout the night. Stayed for 5 nights and did not enjoy it one bit.

  • Single

    The Pickwick Hotel is only a couple of blocks from the Moscone, which is perfect for business travelers. Service was great and my room was comfortable. I was surprised that I was able to get a really great rate during the week of the event I was attending at the Moscone.

    The wifi service didn't work on my floor, which I had to go to the lobby downstairs to connect. It's an older hotel so the walls were a bit thin.

  • Single
    5.0

    The location was fine and the architecture was nice. The service at the desk was professional too. They were nice enough to change my room to a quiet location.

    This hotel is really worn. I am sure that in its heyday it was great, but not it is really in need of a refresh. It was also not very clean. Everything was really dusty and the carpet by my bed had a huge gross stain. I paid $269 a night, and this was certainly not up to that standard for cleanliness. Thank God my wife wasn't with me. She would have freaked. If they put about 10 times more attention into cleanliness it might be worth staying here, but as it is I would never return and felt a bit ripped off.

  • Single

    Older hotel, but clean and comfortable with free internet and a refrigerator in the room. Location is excellent for conferences at Moscone and also close to streetcars, shopping, restaurants and quite easy to reach SF attractions. Windows also opened to allow fresh air into the room.

    No room service, but there were plenty of good take-out options very close. Also no safe in the room, but I had no issues with anything even being moved around in the room.

    7.0

    Location. Literally steps away from the Westfield shoppig centre (Macy'S.. Bloomingdales and Nordstrom too from memory). The hotel was also really close to the cable car station and bus station. Overall a good value for money!!

    Walls are thin.. Kinda noisy and we could hear noises in the other room.. Room is small and old..
