Grant Plaza Hotel
Lonely Planet review
Many rooms overlook the blinking neon and exotic street scene of Grant Ave: expect noise. Rooms are generally clean (never mind the heavy air-freshener), but blandly decorated with generic furniture. Baths have soap, but not shampoo. If you want to be in the heart of Chinatown, this is it.
Our independent authors have visited Grant Plaza Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in San Francisco.
