This was our second stay at the Phoenix and it did not disappoint. The staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable, the heated pool is awesome and plenty of free parking. Bar and restaurant very enjoyable. Will definitely be back.

A really cool, gracefully-aged and well-cared for hotel providing a nod to the music industry. Safe and clean with wonderful employees providing warm and welcoming service and insights to the city. Wonderfully located. Uber never more than 5 minutes away. Terrific Vietnamese restaurant across street!

I've stayed at the Phoenix twice this fall and just booked my third visit. That alone is a rave review! But the reasons are even better: Great staff, nicely finished interior spaces, and good rooms. And one free parking space per room! (Very rare in San Francisco.) The neighborhood is the Tenderloin, and it is somewhat nasty at times, though... More

I love the idea of this hotel with the pool, the fun decor and the restaurant, Chambers, it's a winner (as long as it's not Sunday when the restaurant and bar are closed). That pool is well worth a dip and at 85 degrees was quite inviting. So as many others have mentioned the neighborhood is not for everyone. I... More

I love the vibe at the Phoenix and free parking to boot :). Orlando was very welcoming and helpful. As a Joy of Life member, we get bottled water on arrival :). This motel was walking distance to see James McMurtry at GAMH. This is my 3rd stay at the Phoenix and not my last.

Had a lovely time at Phoenix Hotel. Room was clean and tidy, quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The free parking was an incredible find in SF. Whenever I visit SF in the future, I'll make sure to book a room here again. Definitely recommended.

Really great frontdesk people - greated with bottles of wine and allowed to check-out whenever we wanted since they had a fairly open book. Pool is heated and staff is really cool. The hotel is in a bit of a bad area, but the hotel is nicely insulated from it with large walls and plants. I will definitely return.

Nice people. Very nice inner patio with good pool. Comfortable beds. Good bar and the surrounding area is nice too with Little Saigon just around the corner. Also only 5 minutes walk from Brenda's - one of the best cajun restaurants I'we been to

The front desk staff was so welcoming and helpful, we immediately knew we would love this hotel. The location is urban, but all of San Francisco can be that way. We felt 100% safe.
