The staff is very friendly & helpful, the room was clean & the bed was very comfortable. Box breakfast every morning & it was really decent! At least they have parking available if you rent a car. Easy walk to Market Street & cable car to Pier 39 & Fisherman's Wharf. Only downfall is the location.

Yes, the neighborhood is a little rougher than most hotel zones in SF, but it's not dangerous by any stretch. The service is friendly and attentive, the rooms are on the larger side and clean, and the price is fair. There's a small fitness room available across the street at their sister hotel.

If only this hotel was better located then I wouldn't have hesitated to give it 5/5. The area it is in is rather sketchy and none of us felt especially comfortable walking around at night. The hotel itself also doesn't look like much from the outside. Accordingly this meant that we spent more time at the hotel and its sister...

The areas a little edgy but that's part of the attraction. It's not unsafe and very close to Market Street, shops etc. Rooms have great character and are stylish and clean with big comfy beds. Staff were great. Boxed brekkie pick up from reception was a great start each day. No pool but can use pool at hotel across the...

Enjoyed our stay. Staff members are very friendly, professional and helpful. They allowed us to drop off our luggage even though we arrived before check-in time. They called us when our room was ready. Loved the decor of the rooms. Property is sparkling clean. Major bus lines are only a few blocks away.

My overall impression of this hotel and my time spent there is very good. It was clean, everything in the room worked, and the staff was always very friendly and very helpful. Our room was facing 7th St. so it was noisy at all times during the day but quieted down nicely at night so we weren't disturbed while we...

Negatives: area is dodgy, we felt unsafe at night. Very little information provided in the room e.g. Breakfast times, laundry service, check out times. Breakfast was a simple box including a piece of fruit, croissant, yoghurt and juice box that we had to fetch from reception, bean or cornflakes were absorbed in small tubs too. Gym is in the hotel...

For San Fran this was a great choice. Being a lot of older buildings throughout San Fran & most are an expensive stay, The Carriage in was great stay.

Other than being surrounded by a sketchy, but non harmful neighbourhood, it is a pretty cool hotel. Retro interior and non-offensive themed rooms, hotel, rooms, bathrooms are very clean. Extremely friendly and accommodating service!.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
