Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Tilden Hotel

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"Comfortable, budget-friendly option, great location!"
Overall Score3.5/ 5
The Hotel Mark Twain is a small, casual, comfortable hotel in the heart of San Francisco. Their main feature is their location - the hotel is walking distance (just a few blocks) from Union Square, the cable cars on Powell, and the Moscone Convention Center. The accommodations are simple, and have a cozy, homey feel to them. The price is very fair for the location, and the staff is friendly. This will not be the hotel you hang out in during your trip, but it will be a comforting place to come back to at the end of the day. I was also pleasantly surprised by their on-site restaurant and bar, which seems like a solid, trendy place to have dinner. Don't forget to ask a staff member about their 'secret garden' - a little urban oasis hidden in the back of the hotel.

Property Description

Tilden Hotel is a true hidden gem that offers a great guest experience. Tilden Hotel wants to make your life easier and help you book a successful event. We are located in Downtown SF surrounded by restaurants, shopping and night life. We are two blocks from Union Square, the best central shopping location with one of the largest collections of departments stores, upscale boutiques, beauty salons and art galleries in the US. We are also next to the theater district full of repertory, off-broadway shows. If you are looking for a unique experience and are well traveled we recommend checking out the Tenderloin home to the best underground art spaces, classic concert venues like the Great American Music Hall, speakeasy style bars mixing craft cocktails and everything from upscale and trendy to dark and divie. We can help with city permits to park motor-coach buses on the block or I also recommend going to the Oracle Lot A / Pier 48 located just south of the ballpark, generally $80.00.
