“Excellent location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

Rooms very clean.
Location excellent.
Shopping convenient..just nest door.
Close to Union Square, trolley, muni, Bart, Chinatown , fisherman wharf.
Valet parking is $30+
Breakfast spread can be improved.

Basically, we have a pleasant stay in Stratford.

Room Tip: My room with two doubles were sufficient for our family. Quiet facing room 703.

This is not a fancy hotel but it is in the middle of a great area. The street noise is comforting and we enjoyed the trolly cars going up and down the street under our window. In the evening the street musicians melodies were very peaceful. The breakfast was very adequate to begin your day. The rooms are small but in San Francisco who stays long in the room anyway. The front desk staff is always ready to help or assist. I would definitely stay at The Stratford again.

This hotel was everything that we expected, just as described on their website. Valet parking was efficient, but expensive (expected for downtown san fran) The room was cozy - but large enough for our suitcases to be on the floor without impeding our space too much.
One of the nights we were there was a Saturday night, and at about 2am, there was a group of about 4 people partying, hanging out and climbing out over the fire escape (right outside our window) this was quite annoying and meant we couldn’t sleep for a while, but by no means was it the hotels fault – just a few drunk idiots.
The location was great, right in the heart of downtown and our room had views out over the street and the tram line – fantastic.

I stayed here for 3 nights as a solo traveller, and felt very safe. As others have said, the location is amazing, with easy access to Powell Street Station and transport to the airport. My room was small but comfortable, and being in San Francisco I wanted to enjoy the scenery rather than stay in my room! I'd really recommend this to any first-time and returning traveller to SF. Restaurants and supermarkets were also close by and the area is safe. I would definitely go back there again on my next trip

Room Tip: Ask for an inside room and you will have a good night's sleep

The hotel is reasonably priced considering the location which is very central and close to transport.
Although the room was smallish, it was very clean with all amenities working.
The only annoying thing was the slowness off the one lift that was inadequate for the number of hotel guests. The street noise (level 8) was at times a bit loud but the hotel was located in the middle of the city so this should be expected.
