Congrats on building a wonderful staff – Everyone -- front desk, bell staff, housekeeping -- made our stay a wonderful one, and I have already been telling friends around the world to choose the Renoir when they come to San Francisco, and I have been telling local friends in the Bay Area to tell their friends and organizations that it is a great place to recommend for out of town guests and conference accommodations.Even the remodeling that was going on while we were there was carried out in a guest-friendly way -- everyone was always aware of guests' need to come and go with minimal disruption. Of course, we love the building, too -- such a great building! Thank you for your email and congratulations on building such a wonderful staff!
Quaint but a little dated. Service and staff were very friendly and helpful. A for customer service.
Very surprised how good it was! – Thank you so much!!! We could spend an enjoyable time here. One of the front desk staff said " Good morning " in Japanese. I was very surprised, very good!
Clean rooms and friendly staff – This is where the Renoir Hotel shines. I had reason to call the hotel several times before our trip and everyone I spoke to was pleasant and helpful. I verified that the Moscone Convention Center was walking distance (3 blocks) and that public transportation was nearby (five feet from door or across the street if going the other way). I had made two separate reservations because we hadn’t finalized our airfare so I had a reservation for one night and one for six. I called ahead to be sure they understood we didn’t want to check out in between. Once we arrived, the desk help (concierge perhaps) gladly gave directions, helped with shuttle reservations, and answered all our questions until we got our bearings after a few days. There were bellhops available to take luggage to and from the rooms, bring an iron when requested, or extra towels or pillows. The place reminded me of an old European hotel. There’s no meeting rooms or food court just clean hotel rooms with plenty of service. The bistro in the lobby was open for breakfast and lunch. We did not eat there but when we walked through the food was very appealing and smelled wonderful. Continental breakfast was $7.99 and American breakfast was $9.99. We did have an Anchor Steam in the pub one night. There was a long bar with a TV at one end. The other end had a fussball table and a dart board. It wasn’t crowded and the bartender and the other patrons were quite friendly that night. The larger restaurant served Brazilian food. We had dinner there one night. Two people, with two beers, two entrees with salads, tax and tip came to $46. I couldn’t finish my platter and felt guilty not being able to take a doggie bag. My husband had a pork dish and I had a vegetarian lasagna. They were quite good. The hotel provided off street valet parking for $22 a day with in and out privileges. Vans and buses were higher but we used public transportation so I don’t know how smooth this was. I was able to walk to many major attractions including Union Square, Chinatown (saw the Chinese New Years parade just 6 blocks from the hotel), several theaters, The Modern Art Museum, City Hall, the American Automobile Association (AAA) office, United Nations Plaza (where they had a farmers’ market on several morning), and even Grace Cathedral. I just had to ignore the peep shows along the way. The buses and trolleys that ran right in front of the hotel took me to Fisherman’s Wharf, Mission Delores, Golden Gate Park, the Presidio, and Coit Tower with no more than one transfer to another line. If you have need to be in San Francisco, are not adverse to public transportation, find the hubbub of a big city to be energizing, have no need for conference rooms, and can live without room service, The Renoir is a great hotel with clean rooms and friendly staff.
nice hotel visit – I recommend for family with kids, couples, single, honeymoon, girls, mature adults. good employees, nearby good dining places, shopping. My husband and I found the hotel while we were walking SF downtown. We liked the building and the lobby with gorgeous carpets and fine arts. Looked historical, French hotel as the name showed. We wished to stay there. Location is good, close to Union Sq and cable car. We guessed the area would be a little too noisy for us with heavy traffic and maybe unsafe in the night. Guests should use cabs at night. Front desk employees and door person were nice and welcomed us although we were just visiting the hotel.
If you need to be in San Francisco, enjoy public transportation and the hubbub of a big city, don’t need conference rooms or room service, Renoir is a great hotel.
no complaints – Stayed there for 3 nights by myself. The building resembles a smal European hotel, as well as the windows and interiors. Room was ok as it was cheap. I have no complaint about the location, close to concert halls, Union Square, etc.
Helpful employees – I was told this was an European classic hotel and good employees, very helpful. I didn’t like the neighborhood, but it's not too far to the Union Square area. When I had dinner near the Hotel Nikko, I took a cab to go back to the hotel.
it was good – Convenient public transportation access (10 min to cable car, in front of MUNI metro and buses) but surrounding area is not so good. Can’t go out side in the night. There are some restaurants including a fast food place close to the hotel. It was good. Room was clean for this price category. The Aida Hotel is right across the street. Front Desk employee arranged airport shuttle for me when I just asked how to go to the airport.
As the rate was low, I didn’t expect much for the hotel. Bath tub looked a little old but others were acceptable. It was too noisy outside. During my stay I saw a Japanese lady whom I didn’t see at check in. It was a surprise! She spoke to me in English first then in Japanese. She looked like Chinese! I guess she changed her language to Japanese after she saw my name during the conversation.
